CE4 Plugins for Lightroom

The TTG Core Elements 4 (CE4) Web Publishing Suite is a collection of plugins for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4, 5 & 6/CC2015 allowing photographers to create, publish and manage image galleries and/or complete websites to showcase their photography online, easily and awesomely.

Be advised, our CE4 series plugins are sunsetting. We strongly recommend checking out our newer project, Backlight.

The CE4 plugins are no longer in active development. We will continue to sell and provide support for the plugins while Lightroom 6 / CC 2015 is current, but can make no guarantees of support for future versions of Lightroom.

About the CE4 Plugin Series

The CE4 plugin series is built from seven+ years of experience creating Web plugins for Lightroom, and more than 15 years in web-design.

CE4 galleries, pages and themes are built for the modern Web, using HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery. They are responsive, designed to be viewed in modern desktop, tablet and mobile browsers. Search engine optimization and social networking features are built-in, along with powerful, flexible customization options. Host your website on your own space, under your own name; publish content using FTP or via Lightroom's Publish Services.

The CE4 Web Publishing Suite transforms Lightroom in a powerful Web publishing platform.

Requirements

System
Mac or Windows PC, running Lightroom 3/4/5/6/CC2015.
An FTP client
Hosting
Linux OS
Apache server
PHP 5.2.6 or newer
SQLite and PDO modules enabled

CE4 plugins are not standalone software, and require Lightroom to run. Content should be published to the Web via FTP, requiring a domain name and standard web hosting. Hosted website services such as those provided by LiveBooks, Squarespace, Wix, etc. do not qualify as standard web hosting and are incompatible with output from TTG plugins. For quality, affordable, TTG certified hosting, we recommend Bluehost or HostGator.
