How do I know which version of Lightroom I have?

There are multiple versions of Lightroom, and there have been some confusing name changes over the years. Here are the four current versions of Lightroom.

  • This is a version of Lightroom that runs in a web browser. It syncs automatically with Lightroom Desktop.

  • This is the version of Lightroom that runs on iOS and Android. Currently, it does not support the Connections feature.

Who can use this integration?

Anyone with a Mediagraph login can connect their account(s) to their Lightroom account. This includes people with Staff roles as well as General Members of a Mediagraph account. All users can download to their linked Lightroom accounts. 

Am I allowed to upload to Mediagraph from Lightroom?

While all members can download files to Lightroom, the ability to upload is determined by your access privileges. These are set by your account administrators. 

How do I know if I have upload privileges?

When you create or manage a Lightbox, do you see the “Uploads” accordion? If so, you have upload permission. If not, you may want to contact your administrator and ask for upload permission for a specific Lightbox.
