To install the gallery, you need to go to

User/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom on OS X,
C:Documents and SettingsUserApplication DataAdobeLightroom on XP-Note that Application Data is a hidden folder,
C:UsersUserAppDataRoamingAdobeLightroom on Vista,

where User is the name you log in with. Look for a folder called Web Galleries within. If it’s not there, create it yourself. Unzip the file into this folder and restart Lightroom.
The new Gallery will apppear in the Right Hand Panel, in the Galleries Panel in LR1 and the Engines Panel in LR2.
In LR2, you can also open the Preferances and click ‘Show Lightroom Presets folder’ in the Presets section.

I recommend that you create an alias/shortcut to this Lightroom folder for future use.

If you wish to comment on a gallery, can you please do so on the the gallery post, or the associated Lightroom Forum post? Thank you.

  1. I’m sorry, I feel like a total idiot with this question. I am trying to install lightroom templates or galleries, and I can’t seem to make any headway at all. I looked for the “engines” reference in this stream, but I can’t find that either. I have LR2.3 and am running in on a mac. HELP!!!!

  2. Sean, thanks! With all 60 images it works great. Another question – is there a way to move the images around, say in different order or gallery? Thanks again.

  3. I downloaded the Web Galleries and installed as instructed. However I get a HTML screen when I click on it in LR. I’m running Windows Vista 64 bit. Could that be my problem? Thanks

  4. I think you’ve done a great job on this and I am interested in getting a few things customized. Are you able to do this? For compensation of course.

  5. ave attempted to download and install this web site preset but I have not had any luck unzipping the files. I am getting an error message about encryption. I am running Windows Vista on a PC. Thanks for the web site preset development.

  6. Andrew,
    there is a warning in the text about needing the correct number of images in the gallery or it will break. When the number of images is less than the total of images per gallery X number of galleries, it will break, because it’s making a null call. As there’s no real way to error check this, I added the warning.

  7. AWSOME gallery plug-in you have made. Can’t wait to see version 1.1 since I guess you will make additions for the plugin so it will work far better as a template for a site.

    Keep up the good work

  8. Oops – ignore my previous – it’s for LR2 not 1 – got confused by your ref to Ver 1 – thought was LR but it’s the gallery template!
    Me Dumbo!

  9. Trying to get your Web Gallery template to appear in LR1.4.1 (OSX 10.5.4). On download it auto-unzips to xx.lrwebengine. Moving that to the Web Galleries folder has no result – does not appear on LR re-start. Also tried downloading without unzip and unzip in Web Galleries – also zilch. Where am I going wrong?
    Thanks for any assistance you can give.

  10. Hi,
    I looked all over your blog and could not seem to find a way to contact you. Figured you might read this.

    Anyway: I have just gone public with a new Lightroom tool that is a keyboard designed for lightroom users. While the keyboard is great, the real power is that it gives a shortcut to all of the quick develop settings and the same image editing tools in the develop mode.

    I just wanted to tell you about it because you are someone “in the know” when it comes to lightroom.

    If you are curious, check out the videos on the website. http://www.rpgkeys.com

    Once the users learns the placement of the keys, they can edit 2000 images in less than 3 hours.


  11. Hi, I just tried to download your awesome lightroom presets “dragan” 1-6, but unfortunately they didn’t work. Can you please fix it somehow or can I get a hold of those presets somewhere else?

    I used to use them alot, but I had to reinstall my macbook the other day and all my presets disappeared.
