Lightroom is fine and great but there have been no streamlined, no or low cost ways to share photos with family and friends even having a hosted personal site. I have used wordpress but that is a pain and I have just been emailing photos around.

Personally the best thing to happen to lightroom in years is koken. I can control a photo website almost entirely from within lightroom. Update the photo feed and add new albums without even leaving the lightroom program. Totally awesome.

Koken really should be build directly into lightroom, sure beats the included website gallery options that are in LR. Adobe can you add this to the next version of LR?

I assume you are using this plugin from Koken already? https://store.koken.me/lightroom/koke...

I have the plugin installed and it is great. Took be almost no time get a full personal website up with auto updating galleries. It provides what I always expected from the Lightroom web galleries export option but never received over the past 5 years.

Great layout options, one button updating of images within galleries and control over multiple galleries within all without leaving lightroom. Maybe everyone else pays smugmug or adobe to host images online but these program/plugin like an extremely elegant no frills update to the web galleries. It currently works great but with the plugin developers having moved on and the core code sold off no saying how long it will continue to be updated, hopefully for a while. I wish the LR galleries export options were as good or even half as good.

Looks interesting. But does it work well on iOS devices?
