Great plugin and well worth the $15. However the new licensing requirements for $15 every time you upgrade lightroom is a big turn off! I was happy to support the developer however the recent changes of the licensing is a slap in the face to all that have supported him. I give it a 5 for function and support but a 0 for the money grabbing licensing change.

I rate this one 5 starts because it takes managing my Piwigo gallery to a new level beyond only having a "export to Piwigo" feature. I've used digiKam until for exporting to Piwigo and never have thought buying this Lightroom plugin would be worth the money. I was wrong. The publish plugin is awesome.

And the support by Vladimir is outstanding, I reported a bug in the publish plugin, and from the time he got my debug log by mail until he came up with a fixed version took less than 10 minutes.

This plugin makes managing my Piwigo library as easy as managing my Lightroom library. It is really amazing. At one point, I had a question about how to change the visibility settings on select images, and the developer was very quick to offer a solution.

I highly recommend this plugin if you use Piwigo!

This plugin works well enough, although it requires direct access to the Piwigo server prior to _creating_ a photoset, which breaks my (usually disconnected) workflow when I'm traveling.

The unfortunate part is that the licensing is rather unusual:

"This plug-in is released as Shareware (no source code provided). The registration fee is $15 (USD) per single user. The license allows you to install the plugin on two computers, for example a desktop and a laptop computer, owned and operated by a single user.

Starting with Lightroom 5, you would need to purchase a new registration code for each major Lightroom version. This does not impact dot (minor) releases, e.g. Lr 4.1 to Lr 4.2."

Edit from my Feb 2013 review : I was surprised I had to repay because (and only because) of my update to LR5...
