If you had the free version installed, and you want to install the Pro version, check out this documentation first.

Download the Smart Slider 3 Pro zip installer from our website. (Or the free version for WordPress from here.)

Press Install Now, and if the installation was successful, click on Activate Plugin.
If you are getting a " The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini." message, follow the FTP installation method instead!
