 know SmugMug has a great tutorial on how to install the plugin for Adobe Lightroom CC, but I thought I will write my own { more visual } version with step-by-step instructions.

What is SmugMug plugin for Adobe Lightroom?

Lightroom Plugin from SmugMug is a small tool, which will allow you to upload images from your Lightroom library directly to SmugMug.  You can read more about its capabilities – here.

VERY IMPORTANT – THIS TUTORIAL IS ONLY FOR INSTALLING THE PLUGIN IN ADOBE LIGHTROOM – CREATIVE CLOUD VERSION

Preparing Adobe Creative Cloud on your Computer

The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that Adobe Creative Cloud is syncing files to your computer – otherwise the plugin will not be installed.

Open Adobe Creative Cloud on your computer → and click the settings icon { see the screenshot below }:

Creative Cloud Panel

From the dropdown menu choose PREFERENCES → open CREATIVE CLOUD tab → FILES → turn SYNCING ON { see my screenshot below }:
