Importing a ProPhoto 6 Design

Last updated: August 16, 2019
You are here:

The process to import a design from P6 is almost exactly the same as importing a design into 7.

First, start by going into ProPhoto > Manage Designs.

Scroll down and under the “Import P6 Designs” section, click the dropdown to select the design you want to import.

Q. What if I don’t see the option to import?

Then the design you uploaded into P6 was not an activated design or you don’t have P6 installed. ProPhoto 6 has to be installed, and the design you’re trying to import had to have been imported into ProPhoto 6 previously.

If the option to import isn’t showing up, you’ll need to install ProPhoto 6 first. If you purchased it previously, you can always download your purchases from your ProPhoto account at –

If the option to import is showing up, but NOT the design, then you’ll need to make sure that you imported the design into ProPhoto 6 and activated or customized the design in that version at least once for the option to show up to import the design into 7.

Once you click the design you want to import, the initialization window will popup and it will try to import the design.

Importing a P6 design into 7 is a very complicated process. The initialization screen that pops up might hang for a minute or two while it’s importing. I would say after about 3-4 minutes though then to start the process over again.

If you’re still having trouble getting it to import, go into your WordPress Plugins, deactivate all plugins, then try again.

Once the design finishes, it will show up in the designs section as an available design to test drive or customize.

Now it’s time to activate your design. If you have test drive going, then a test drive button will show up for you to click. If you chose to activate p7 on install, then it may say something different, like “customize”. Either way, you’ll need to click the button to get to the next step.

After clicking test drive or customize, your screen will pop-up with a quick initializing window and then you’ll be free to customize the design by clicking customize in the sidebar under the ProPhoto heading.
