Video tutorial: Host a Adobe Photoshop Lightroom web gallery
You can preview your web gallery in the Web module or in your default browser before saving or uploading it.
- To preview your web photo gallery in a browser, click Preview In Browser in the lower-left corner of the window.
- To update the web gallery preview in the Web module work area, choose Web > Reload from the Lightroom Classic main menu.
The web gallery preview in Lightroom Classic updates as you make changes to the gallery, so you usually won’t need to use the Reload command.
You can specify the FTP server information in the Upload Settings panel and use the FTP capabilities in Lightroom Classic to upload your gallery to a web server. After you click the Upload button, Lightroom Classic automatically generates the necessary files and then transfers them to the web server you specify.
To use a separate FTP application for uploading your files, or to generate a gallery for offline viewing, you can first export the files. When you click the Export button, Lightroom Classic creates a folder containing HTML files, image files, and other web-related files. If you’re saving a Flash gallery, the necessary SWF files are included. The folder is saved in a location that you specify.
Web gallery photos and image thumbnails are saved as JPEGs with embedded sRGB profiles.
The server path specifies the location on the web server for placing the web gallery folder you’re uploading.
When typing the server path, use slashes for designating the directory and sub-directories. For example: /root_directory_name/www/In this example, “root directory” is the name of the root level, the directory you must enter to access space on the web server, and “www” is the name of the specific sub-folder where the web files will be uploaded. Check with your web hosting provider to verify the path for accessing your public folder on the web server.
