Would love an export feature that would optimize an image for how Instagram will compress the image. It would at least be convenient to allow crop ratios to be saved (ie the 1.91:1 for IG landscapes I use over and over) if output sharpening for handheld devices could also be added that would be stupendous. Otherwise love the product!

Export Presets are your Friend. :)
Crop Ratios can be entered as Custom. (Lr-Classic will 'remember' the last five ratios you enter)
See an excellent site for suggestions of Export Dimensions-
https://louisem.com/37587/whats-the-best-instagram-image-size
Use these dimensions in your Export Presets for 'Portrait' and 'Landscape'.
And- Sharpening for 'Screen' is there too!

To add to Robert's comment above, I just check this site once a year to see if any changes, and make presets for the sites I regularly upload to: https://sproutsocial.com/insights/social-media-image-sizes-guide/

Not sure, Philippe - I only use LR Classic (and LR CC on an Android tablet, but only export from Classic). If LR Desktop (i.e. the desktop version of the new LR CC) doesn't have export preset capabilities, then I second Shaun's request - presets save time wherever they're present in LR's modules...

So I guess I'm looking for the same solution.  I'm new to LR and I've searched exporting impinges from LR Desktop to social media, and it seems it's not available, is that so or am I missing something?
