Hi, gang — I’m back from my trip to Lisbon and Morocco (photos and a Webcast to come soon), but for today I wanted to cover the recent update to Adobe Portfolio (the free online pro-look portfolio that comes with your Creative Cloud subscription plan) and how it now much more seamlessly, quickly, and easily lets you import your Lightroom collections as galleries in Adobe Portfolio. This is really a big workflow improvement. Here’s how it works:
NOTE: If you’re not familiar with Adobe Portfolio, I did a post and short video about it at this link.
OK, as for the updated Lightroom integration, here’s how it works:
STEP ONE: This feature only works with collections you’ve synced to Lightroom Mobile, so start by going to the Collections panel and turn on syncing for Collection you want to upload to Adobe Portfolio (as seen here, where I’m clicking on the Sync button to the far left of the collection’s name).
STEP TWO: Go to MyPortfolio.com – log in with your Adobe User Name and ID, then click the Add Content + sign (in the left side panel) to bring Add Content dialog you see above.
STEP THREE: This brings up the window you see here, which is a mirror of the collections you’d sync’d to Lightroom Mobile. Click on the collection you want to import (it will import all the images in that collection all at once — no need to go selecting image-by-image like we had to do in the past), then click the Import Selected button in the bottom right corner.
STEP FOUR: Your images will appear in a grid layout, where you can reorder the images, and customize your online gallery page just the way you want. It’s really quick and easy (thank you, Adobe!).
Our buddy and Adobe Official Worldwide Evangelist Terry White did a nice video on this update, along with more details on using Adobe Portfolio, and I’m embedding it below. It’s really worth checking out.
Hope you found that helpful. 🙂
Heads up: My Lightroom seminar is coming to Phoenix and Houston in just a couple of weeks. Hope you can out and spend the day with me. 🙂
Have a great weekend everybody!
