LrC 10.1
Operating System
  1. macOS 11 Big Sur
  2. iOS
After editing raw files in LrC I will export a collection as jpgs to the desktop. I then open the mac photos app and import these images as an album which I can then run as a slide show on my Apple TV. I generally use an export quality of 90 and 72 dpi and display them on a 4k tv.
I have two questions:
1. Is there a direct way to export LrC collections to the Photos app on mac without first saving them to the desktop?

2. Is quality of 90 and ppi of 72 less than optimal for displays 4k and above?

For sending files to anything but a printer, PPI is meaningless. You need to ensure that you have enough pixels in the exported files that the image will fit snugly on a 3840 x 2160 pixel screen. A quality of 90 is fine, or maybe even overkill. See this.
