Running Blow Up 3 from Lightroom

Blow Up 3 is run from Lightroom as an external editor. To launch Blow Up on an image simply select an image (or multiple images for batch processing), and select Photo->Edit In->Blow Up 3. You can also right click on the image and select Edit In->Blow Up 3. When Lightroom asks you how to edit the photo, we recommend you choose “Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments”. This will tell Lightroom to make a copy of the image in the preferred format for Blow Up.

Batch Mode

When Blow Up is run with multiple images from Lightroom, the OK and Cancel buttons at the lower-right corner of the window changes to what is shown in the picture. The left and right arrow buttons allow you to navigate to different images and the middle button allows you to select all or one image in your batch of images for editing. When you are done, press the “Finish Batch” button and your adjustments will be applied to all of the images.
