I'm very new to Creative Cloud, so please pardon my ignorance. I'm looking for a way to share content (mostly photos, but some video) on the web, but privately, and ideally keeping metadata like tags and identified faces. I have about 30,000 photos in Lightroom Classic, and I'd like to share a few thousand of them with my family and friends. As I see it, I have the following choices:
Adobe Portfolio, which I just today discovered. But I see no way of keeping the site private, such as creating a login. And I don't know about the metadata.
Uploading them to SharePoint, which I know how to manage. But that duplicates things and loses the metadata right?
Using some other server such as Moments or Photo Station on my Synology server. But, same problems as SharePoint.
Any suggestions? Am I nuts? Or am I missing some obvious solution?

Lightroom albums/collections can be synced to your Portfolio project pages which is very convenient. But don't go overboard. Portfolio, as it name implies, is for posting examples of your BEST work online. If you try to upload thousands of images, you're asking for problems. Nobody, not even your family & friends will wait 1-2 hours for a website to load.
