I’d love to be able to publish my Lightroom mobile albums to Smugmug directly from my mobile or my computer...

The request was for the Lightroom CC ecosystem, not Classic.

Charlotte, if you install the Smugmug app on your iOS device, you can use the share button to share single or multiple images directly with SmugMug. It's not as cool as the plugin that Ninjaneer mentions for Classic, and that's a bummer. I would love to see more direct syncing from the LR CC ecosystem (LrCC for Desktop, LrCC Mobile, maybe even LrCC Web) with SmugMug.

Currently with LrCC for Desktop or Web, you have to export and then add. There is a SmugMug app, at least for Mac, that allows you to quickly load images into SmugMug without having to use your web browser. But again, not as nice as the Classic plugin.

For what it's worth, my understanding is that the new share button in LrCC for Desktop is to eventually offer integrations more similar to what we have on iOS. And maybe someday there will even be plugins or other tools to better handle integration with online sharing similar to the the plugin for Lr Classic.

As I can't export from CC on my iOS devices right now, I can't import in Smugmug so...

Start by hitting the little iOS share button, then click Share.



Next slide over to SmugMug (you need the SmugMug app installed, and you may need to activate the share plugin).


Then the app dialogue will pop up and you can choose which gallery to send the image(s) to or create a new gallery for them.


Voila! Hope that helps!

I know, but I ave a bug with my account which prevent me from exporting. I got an error when I try to export, no matter to where. The tech team is on it.

And I think that what you describe allows us to export 1 picture, but not an entire album, doesn’t it?

You can export multiple pictures. I'm not sure about a whole album. When you choose Select, Share is one of the options. That said, I recall when I was using LrCC, the export would fail if I chose too many pictures. I don't know what the exact number was, but I found I had to do it in batches. But it's been a while (I switched back to Classic), so it's possible they've stabilized it by now.
