PhotoFXlab can be used as an external editor in Lightroom. If you were closed out of Lightroom during the installation of photoFXlab, it should automatically appear in your Photo -> Edit In menu as an external editor. 

However, if for some reason it does not, please follow these instructions to configure photoFXlab as an external editor in Lightroom:

Lightroom Mac:

1. Go to Lightroom -> Preferences -> External Editing.

2. In the Additional External Editor panel, choose photoFXlab (located in your Applications folder) as the external editor.

3. Select TIFF in File Format pull-down menu.

4. Select the Color Space choice and Bit Depth. It is recommended to use 16-bit ProPhoto RGB for Color Space for best preserving of color details from Lightroom.

5. Restart Lightroom and you will see photoFXlab in the Photo -> Edit In menu.

Lightroom Windows: 

1. Go to Lightroom -> Preferences -> External Editing.

2. In the Additional External Editor panel, choose photoFXlab as the external editor.
PhotoFXlab will be located here:

64bit machines: C:/Program Files (x86)/Topaz Labs/Applications

3. Select TIFF in File Format pull-down menu.

4. Select the Color Space choice and Bit Depth. It is recommended to use 16-bit ProPhoto RGB for Color Space for best preserving of color details from Lightroom.

5. Restart Lightroom and you will see photoFXlab in the Photo -> Edit In menu.

Note: If using photoFXlab as an external editor in Lightroom, you do not need to use Fusion Express.
