If you’re sick and tired of first having to output the JPEGs at the right size etc. from Lightroom, and then using whatever random tool is out there to upload to flickr, smugmug, zenfolio, etc., then there is hope for you thanks to Jeffrey Friedl:
There you will find numerous very well crafted plugins to Lightroom to upload from Lightroom’s “export” function.
Not only do these plugins take care of uploads, but they can also plug in things like “keywords”, “groups”, and other useful meta-data. They’re also remarkably bug free for a 1 person endeavor.
Highly recommended. Now if he just made a “photo.net” uploader!
