AlloyPhoto Lightroom to Piwigo export plugin - no serial number

Greetings,

I just upgraded to Lightroom Classic with an OS upgrade to Mac Monterey. I had been using the AlloyPhoto export plugin for years with Lightroom 6. Great product.

When Lightroom is upgraded, it is necessary to purchase a new AlloyPhoto license. No problem with that, except that Vladimir at AlloyPhoto did not send the serial number after my purchase a week ago. He does not respond to emails and has a contact form on alloyphoto.com that does not function. He has been quick to respond in the past and in fact released a new version of the plugin in October.

Does anyone have information?

Related to my experience, I discovered an old thread from 2019 on the fr.piwigo site that mirrors my current situation, with Vladimir and his site unresponsive for a time. Apparently his site was being ported to a new server, there were some connection problems and people did not receive their serial numbers after purchase. It would be odd for this to happen again so soon. In any case, I have pasted below my question on the fr.piwigo forum.

Encore des embetêments avec Vladimir. Ça marchais toujours bien avec Lightroom 6, mais je viens de reacheter son plugin pour Lightroom Classic. Vladimir ne m'avais pas communiqué le clé depuis une semaine. Il ne répond pas au email. Quoi faire?

Additional information:

My Safari browser is warning me that alloyphoto.com has had an expired certificate for 121 days and is now unsafe to visit. That does not sound like a good thing.

Re: AlloyPhoto Lightroom to Piwigo export plugin - no serial number

I came here with the same problem. I bought the plugin 10 days ago but did not receive a serial number, got an error trying to generate it from the web site, and have had no response to emails or contact via the webform. Trying to send a message via the webform today now also gives an error.

It is starting to look like abandonware... I really would like to get the unrestricted plugin, but it seems like the only option is to dispute the PayPal transaction.

Re: AlloyPhoto Lightroom to Piwigo export plugin - no serial number

I submitted a PayPal refund claim but in the message made it clear that the refund is not the point. I'm hoping that PayPal has an alternate way to communicate with Vladimir and that my message will get through.

When I try to use the serial number retrieval tool, I get this at the bottom of the error message: "ERROR: The /var/www/html/alloyphoto.com/plugins directory does not exist!"

That suggests to me that the site may have been hacked.

The other AlloyPhoto plugin that I need is the export list for Lightroom. With that plugin it is possible to create an .xml database file that matches the specifications for submitting images for copyright registration. It basically automates the process once it is set up. Very handy.

I just tried to visit the AlloyPhoto page on the Adobe Exchange (https://exchange.adobe.com/creativeclou … macos.html) and I found this message:

This Extension is retracted by the partner.

Re: AlloyPhoto Lightroom to Piwigo export plugin - no serial number

I’m happy to report that I just received the serial numbers for the two AlloyPhoto plugin updates I purchased, including the Lightroom to Piwigo export plugin. As I suspected, the issue was a technical one with Vladimir’s server - just like the similar issue in 2019. I assume the rest of the AlloyPhoto site is functioning normally at this point.

What did you do to get a response from Vladimir?

I have a similar issue. Serial number doesn't work after a Lightroom version upgrade. I bought it in the last month or so, hence I'm eligible for to continue using it.

Unfortunately, there's no response from Vladimir.
