Exporting from LR CC to Photos on Mac?

Hello everyone.

 

Is it possible to export full resolution photos from Lightroom CC (as edited) into the Photos app on Mac? I edit my photos in LR but the final versions I like to save in the Photos app for later viewing and sharing.

 

On the iPad, I can do this by saving to the camera roll and then organising into a a folder within the Photos app. But I can't seem to do that on the desktop. Do I have to export to a folder on my Mac first, before importing those files into the Photos app (which is a bit clunky and potentially duplicates files).

 

Many thanks

Export to a folder, then import in Photos from that folder.

You can't export directly to the Photos app but I'm questioning why you need to do this. With Lightroom you can create public urls to share with others, and with the Lightroom app on your phone you have access to same exact images in Lightroom on your computer. You are creating extra work by exporting to the photos app.
