SPECIAL NOTE for Mac OS X users: Make sure Photoshop is closed, then select all of the droplets in the Lightroom action folder and then drag them onto the Photoshop icon in the dock. This should convert them to use on the Mac.

We now have available all of our Noiseware and Portraiture actions as Photoshop droplets for use in Lightroom. We have put together a video tutorial that explains how to use the droplets inside of Lightroom but to do so, you must have all of our actions plus the droplets installed in the correct location for the process to work. Here are some instructions on where to put both the actions and the Photoshop droplets plus the link to the video tutorial.

SPECIAL NOTE: there are two sets of Lightroom Droplets available for download. The first set contains droplets for Noiseware 4.1 and Portraiture 1.0. The second set contains droplets for Portraiture 2.0 only. In addition, if you are running Lightroom 1.4+ you will need to follow the instructions in the video tutorial for synchronizing folders. If you are running Lightroom 2.0 or higher, you can ignore this step as LR2 will synchronize import/export folders automatically.

If you haven't already done so, download both the Noiseware and Portraiture actions from the links above and place them in your Photoshop actions directory. For most PC users, this will be C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Presets\Actions where CS3 will be the version of Photoshop CS you are using. For most Mac users, this will be Applications\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Presets\Actions where CS3 will be the version of Photoshop CS you are using.

The droplets themselves have to be unzipped in specific locations according to your operating system as follows:

Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Adobe\Lightroom\Export Actions
Vista/Windows 7
C:\Users\<username>\Appdata\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Export Actions
Mac
Users\<username>\Library\Application Support\Adobe\Lightroom\Export Actions

When the above is finished, just play the video for full details on the whole process!
