    Alien Skin Snap Art 3 and Bokeh 2 not coming up in LR4

    I DLed the trial MAc versions of these these two plugins to give them a try bu when I launch the installer they only give me Adobe CS5 (which btw is a 30 day trial only) as an "host" and not Lightroom (which is my full license).
    Of course they do not show up in the external editor list of LR4.
    Can I try something manually ?
    Thanks

    Seems the applications will not install automatically for LR. Here is what their very kind customer support wrote and it worked:
    Our software is not a plugin for Lightroom. It actually works as an external editor that LR launches. Here are the instructions on how to add the software to LR. The instructions use Exposure 4 as an example, but you can replace that with Blow Up 3 and Snap Art 3 when following them.
    Please open Lightroom and then open your preferences.
    Mac - Lightroom > Preferences
    PC - Edit > Preferences
    Select the External Editing tab.
    Click the Preset dropdown under Additional External Editor and make sure Custom or Exposure 4 are selected.
    Then click Choose, and browse to the Exposure 4 application file.
    Mac - Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Alien Skin > Exposure 4 > Alien Skin Exposure 4
    PC - C:\Program Files\Alien Skin\Exposure4\Alien Skin Exposure 4 x64.exe
    Then click Save Current Settings as New Presets from the Preset drop down box.

    My pleasure Victoria. One correction: what I wrote above applies to the Snap Art 3 (the filters that make your pics resemble paintings/drawings), Blow Up 3 (an image enlarger) and Exposure 4 (which simulates many types of fims plus their blemishes). The same process applies also to Bokeh 2 (a sort of "selective blurring" tool) but the application is not in the same path as the others but is sitting in your Applications folder.
    Another clarification: when you save the new preset, you will able to save as many as you want (so for example in my case I ended up saving external editors for both Snap Art 3 and Exposure 4). It wasn't totally obvious to me since the External editing tab had only two entries, one taken by my trial of Photoshop and another one.
