I know that, I try to keep the keeper files with no compression, I guess I will need to just export them and manually upload to smugmug. I was just looking for a cleaner workflow.
Why not export straight from LR to smugmug? You can do so directly, whether from a camera Raw, a camera JPG, or a working TIFF / PSD that has been made from that camera file.
This output reflects the current LR adjustments and crop - and you specify the characteristics of the JPG that is to be created, including resizing and output sharpening and colourspace, just as when exporting to disk. But: in one step, without needing any local copy to be saved.
If you use Publish rather than Export, then LR additionally keeps track of this virtual relationship - and of any further LR editing - which semi-automates updating this online version of your image in the future, should you want that.
This is about as clean a workflow as you can get: all that you need, is one untouched out-of-camera file, plus an image hosting website.
Or if you involve an external editor, then all that you need is one out-of-camera file, one editing TIFF, plus an image hosting website.
Thank you I will check into the exporting directly to smugmug, This morning I did find the option to export the TIF and save the large jpg right back into the catalog. Its really not ever going to be a huge number of photos, these are just photos I want to offer for sale through smugmug.
