Theater Add-on Basics

Following installation of the add-on, the Theater Add-on should be available to use.

  • In Backlight's menu, go Designer => Templates.
  • Scroll down to the Album Templates list, and click "Create New Template".
  • Name the template, and for Type choose "Pangolin Theater"; click "Add".

At this point, you may use the designer to customize the album. This probably be easier to do with some images in your album, though, so we recommend getting into Lightroom at this point to publish some images.

  • In Lightroom's Publish Services, create a new album.
  • For Template, select the new Theater template you created during the above steps.
  • Click the Features tab; because our template is still a work-in-progress, we're going to hide it from view. Enable the "Hide from Album Set" and "Hide from Search" checkboxes; click "Create".
  • Add images to the new album and publish.
  • Right-click the album in Publish Services and select "Go to Published Album" to visit the album online.

When publishing completes, return to Backlight's designer and get to designing.
