The addon is available in the UV/Image Editor area. This is tipically visible when rendering or compositing.

Blender 2.79: The main panel is located in the UV/Image Editor toolshelf (T) > Render Slots tab > Shift Slots panel

Blender 2.8x: The main panel is located in the UV/Image Editor sidebar (N) > Render Slots dropdown menu > Shift Slots submenu

Here you can enable/disable the addon, change the type of render event to use and the behaviour when shifting.
