I know this has popped up before. I'm trying to be able to export to Google Photos. I tried using Jeffrey Friedl's a couple of times.

Is there any new solution to do this?

Frustrating to have all my cell phone pictures up with Google but my 'real' photos sit.

Thanks

AFAIK, Google Photos can import a local folder with images, so just export them to such a folder and import that folder in GI.

I have Google Photo Uploader and have done it that way. Problem when you do that is to get the Lightroom adjustments you have to still have to export your images then use that new folder to send to Google.
Like my Smugmug account I'd like to stay right in Lr, do what I want to the images and just drag and drop to publish.

Well, you can setup a publishing service to a folder on your computer. Then you can setup Google Photos Uploader to automatically backup this folder to Google Photos.

I use Google Photos for that but unfortunately it just overwhelms Google Photos so slideshows on my Chromecast are just full of garbage pics rather than being organised and curated. Works as a backup service I guess although I now have it set to backup only export directories.
