Upgrading from CE3 to CE4

If you own the CE3 version of a plugin, then you are eligible to upgrade to the CE4 version of that same plugin according to these conditions:

  • If you've purchased the CE3 version very recently, then the CE4 upgrade is free.
  • If you've purchased not so recently, then you may upgrade to the CE4 version at a discount.

To claim your upgrade, you will need your CE3 order number and email address. Look up your order on this page to access your downloads.

  • If eligible for a free upgrade, then the CE4 version will be attached to your existing order, available for immediate download. Use this same order number to access plugin updates, etc. in the future.
  • If eligible for a discounted upgrade, you will find a new TXT file attached to your CE3 order. This file will contain instructions on how to claim your discount when checking out the CE4 version from our shop.

Are saved CE3 templates compatible with the new CE4 plugins?


The CE4 plugins are completely redesigned from scratch, so most of the CE3 settings simply wouldn't translate. You will need to redesign your site using the CE4 plugins. We realize this is an inconvenience for some users, but making a clean break from CE3 is for the greater good of the product; we are able to push further ahead by not being beholden to the previous version. We thank you for your understanding, and hope you will find much to like about the new versions as you delve into CE4.

Upgrading My Existing CE3 Website to CE4

You will want to take different steps for each plugin, so I will attempt to provide you some guidance on how to most effectively tackle the upgrade for your online content.

CE4 Publisher

On your website, the CE3 Publisher online component likely resides in a folder on the top-level of your site:


Do not delete, move or change this folder!

To setup CE4 Publisher, first install TTG BE, then install the CE4 Publisher online component.

You will now have the CE3 and CE4 versions installed simultaneously:


In Lightroom, do not disable to remove the CE3 Publisher plugin. Install and activate the CE4 Publisher plugin; it's okay to have both installed at the same time. In fact, that's exactly what we want.

You're now all set to run the migration tool, so go read that page. You will probably also want to consult the section below on CE4 Gallery.
