Lightroom Mobile (iOS): Images heavily compressed after Export to Facebook

In Lightroom CC for iOS,  exporting to facebook render extremely low-quality photos. There is no setting to change this. Related to this, Photoshop Express for iOS is unable to work with a DNG file from Lightroom CC, it automatically converts it to a JPEG and you have to reimport manually  (also as JPEG) into Lightroom. The mobile workflow in iOS creates low-quality outputs.

Yes, I've discover this problem too. For example clouds seems pixelated

Go for C1, succeed your cloud by yourself

Realize that Facebook applies aggressive compression on its own, independent of Lightroom's settings.  Even a pristine original-quality file will suffer under Facebook's recompression.

Thanks for your reply.I performed the following test from an iPad Pro 12". First, I posted the photo on facebook directly from Lightroom CC (iOS).  Then, I exported the JPEG to the camera roll and used the Facebook app to create the post. The difference is noticeable when using Lightroom directly. The JPEG has a lot of artifacts and, in for that particular photo, some horizontal white lines. The photograph looked horrible. When uploading the photo from the camera roll, the resulting post ended in a photo that looks decent enough for Facebook. I realize that Facebook is far from ideal as a photographer outlet, but I view Lightroom CC for iOS as the "social" extension of Lightroom Classic.
