This is what I get for 12€ / month. Lightroom, Photoshop, and a Portfolio website thrown in.
Am I happy? Of course I am! Click on the image to visit my new Adobe Portfolio website.

Your post prompted me to look at Adobe Portfolio which looks interesting so I put together a quick Portfolio site using images that were already in Lightroom (Cloud) Albums. However, I have a question.....

My Lightroom (Cloud) albums are populated from Lightroom Classic via sync. So, when I change an image in LR Classic, a few minutes later that change appears in LR (Cloud). However, I don't see the mechanism to refresh the Portfolio site with the modified image. I thought clicking "Update Live Site" button would do it, but it did not seem to. I'm obviously missing something that is probably staring me in the face.

AFAIK, that button only updates the live site with any changes you made manually in this view. A photo that is published from Lightroom is uploaded, not synced. You'll have to replace it manually.

Johan - In other words, remove the image from the Portfolio Album and re-add it?

Oh Well. For me that pretty much defeats most of the value of staying in the Adobe universe with Portfolio for a public website photo viewing platform. At least with Zenfolio, Flickr, and many others, using Publish Services, all I have to do is hit the Publish button to get all my latest edits out to the web sites.

I wonder why Adobe can't - or doesn't want to - sync Portfolio with Lightroom (cloud)? Should be easy enough for them.

Before updating the Live Site, you have to refresh the page (album) from Lightroom. Click on the "Pages & Integrations" button (the one above the blue "+" sign in the left-hand panel), then in the resulting dialog make sure the "Website Pages" tab is selected, you will see a list of the "Pages" (Albums) that you have included from Lightroom. For any that you have changed in Lightroom, click on the "gear" icon and in the resulting menu choose the "Reset from Lightroom" option. When that's done, you can use the "Update Live Site" button.

Jim, Thanks for the workflow. A little cumbersome, but within reason if one keeps track of the albums which have images that have been updated since the last Portfolio refresh. Not sure yet how to so that. Anyone have any good ideas in that regard?
