I am trying to set up collections that has a few sub folders by where image were taken. I then wish to add these collections (about 20) to become "albums" in Adobe Portfolio

I believe I must create these collections in L'room Classic that I want to see in Adobe Portfolio, then turn on "Sync with Lightroom" from the L'room classic identity plate.

I have 3 questions

1) I am afraid that by turning on Sync with Lightroom all off my 60,000 images in my current Lightroom catalgue will be synced in a cloud somewhere.  What exactly happens when I turn on "Sync with Lightroom"   Does eveything I have start uploading to a cloud somewhere?

2) I do not see a sync symbol to the left of my collections.  Will this appear when I turn on "Sync with Lightroom"

3) If I turn on Sync with Lightroom and I click on the sync button that should be to the left of a collection folder how does it get into Adobe Portfolio from there?  Will it show up in portfolio as an album I can add to Portfolio?

 

Thanks for the help, everything I read about Portfolio assumes everone knows what sync is and what it does.

NO. Only photos that you have added to a Collection that is marked to Sync. An these Collection photos are not uploaded to the Cloud as full-size files, but intead they are proxy (smart Previews) of reduced pixel size.

 

2) I do not see a sync symbol to the left of my collections. Will this appear when I turn on "Sync with Lightroom"

YES. And only Standard Collections are capable of syncing (Not- Smart Collections. Not- Collection Sets)

 

3) If I turn on Sync with Lightroom and I click on the sync button that should be to the left of a collection folder how does it get into Adobe Portfolio from there? Will it show up in portfolio as an album I can add to Portfolio?

When you run Portfolio you have the options to add from Lightroom Albums. Procedure goes something like this:

 

https://portfolio.adobe.com/

 

1) Add a Page

2) Select a Lightroom Album

3) Choose (Import Selected)

ScreenShot285.jpg

 

4) The New Page appears with the selected Album.

WobartC Thanks your instructions work great, I am not able to continue designing my Portfolio site and should soon be able to publish it.

When I am satisfied with my design and I click on publish site I assume it will now be accessible for anyone to access it if they have my home page url. 

I have a couple of questions about a published site.

 

What is the best way to get a portfolio album seen by others, other than giving people my portfolio homepage url?

 

It is correct that when people view a portfolio site they can not download images from that site?

I am syncing from a L'room album. If no one can download then I don't need to put watermarks on my images

 

Is there any way people can do a "like" to an image or provide other forms of feedback to images like Flickr or Instagram?

 

If a Lightroom collection is syncing with a Portfolio page and I delete an image from a L'room collection will it be also deleted from the Portfolio page, or do I need to do something in Portfolio to reflect the deleted image in the L'room collection?

 

Appreciate any input on the above

My knowledge of Portfolio is very limited so I may not have the answers!

But from what I have learned-

Anytime to re-edit your 'site' use the https://portfolio.adobe.com/ address.

Then you can open the Settings from the menu on the left where you have-

Analytics, Site Options, Search Optimization, Search Options, etc.

 

Re: "Downloads" - In Site Options you can disable the [Right-click] menu options, But that will not stop screen-clipping, so watermarks are your decision.

Re: "Likes" - Not that I know of. I am only aware of the [Contact] link.

Re: "deleted image" - I am still learning the inner workings of the editor!!
