I have been using Lightroom since version 4 and recently switched to 6.
One thing I still don't seem to fully understand is the following:
When sorting my photos I normally use standard collections. For syncing to other services I would like to use publish services. Now to use my existing collections in the publish service I have to recreate it, either manually or by using a smart collection which only collects images from a specific collection by name. The first option is very time consuming, especially if something changes in the original collection, the other option disregards manual sort order.
What do people normally use to sync catalogue and publish service collections? I am puzzled as to why there is no such thing as a collection alias which can be used in the publish service and reflects the original collection in every way?
