    Although I don't recommend it because you are throwing a lot of usable data away in the process here is how you change what Nik sends back to Lightroom.

    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.
