Built for speed, easy to share
The Adobe Lightroom software development kit (SDK) gives you a clean, fast, lightweight toolset for enhancing and extending the capabilities of the leading image management and sharing software. Plug-ins you build in Lua, the scripting language built into Lightroom, and the Lightroom SDK let you create effects, define image processing presets and brushes, add items to Lightroom menus and dialogs, manipulate metadata, and create new types of web galleries for your images.
The guides, documentation, and sample code in the SDK shows you how to leverage Lua to access the Lightroom API, opening the power of the app to your control. Your plug-ins can be given away or sold in the Adobe Exchange marketplace where users can browse and install extensions. Download the SDK today and discover the power to enhance and extend Lightroom as you see fit.
