  1. Hi Matt, Great course. Thanks. It is probably worth noting that you need the full business subscription and not just a pro account to get the event management features. Peter

  2. I am having trouble getting Lightroom to recognize the SmugMug plugin. It is installed using the Adobe Extension Manager (*.zxp) and for reason Lightroom doesn't recognize it??? Does anyone know how to fix this?

  3. Matt, thanks so much for doing this course. I've had the plugin installed but have had several problems with it. this makes it so clear now how to use it. I was making thing way harder on myself. Thanks.

  4. Thanks for these quick lessons. I've been using SmugMug for four years and lightroom for three. I've had a lot of difficulty swithing between computers with my smugmug collections. These lessons helped my understand how I can use sync to get around these problems. They also helped me understand quick settings. I think I can finally get the last part of my workflow under control.
