    Is there anyone currently using this new included plug in? Do you have anything good to say about the plugin or Bēhance? The included LR plug-in seems pretty lame (lamer even than the OEM Flickr and Facebook Plug-ins

    So far I am not impressed. But I would like to be. Is there something that I've missed?

    I posted this topic over 8 months ago. Over 850 views to this topic and not one reply. What does that say about Bēhance?
    Can anyone convince me that Bēhance and the LR Bēhance plugin are not a worthless POS? Doe anyone use it?
    Apparently you can only create one publish service to the user's Work In Progress area and none to the users projects. Publishing gets tedious if you want to publish more than a very few images to WIP. Each image needs individual manual intervention on the LR side before it will upload to the Bēhance site.

    Bēhance has the potential to become a really useful site for managing a professional portfolio. But as it is now and as disconnected as it is from LR it is useless. I sure hope Adobe did not pay a lot of money for this and I hope it came with a money back guarantee.

    Please allow me to be the first to reply to your 2 year old unanswered post.

    I tried Bēhance about a year ago along LR Mobile and wasn't over impressed with either. At the time, I was looking for an easier way to have a nice website - rather than looking for public comments or mobile editing. Today, I'm thinking of giving LR Mobile another go so I can add ratings and such, but Bēhance still doesn't interest me.

    So, at risk of hijacking your post, I'm also considering another offering from Above - i.e. Adobe Portfolio.

    I'm reading the Adobe help pages at Adobe Portfolio Basics – Adobe Portfolio Knowledgebase & FAQ plus a few reviews found on Google. How to get one's photos uploaded seems to be problematic (to me). It appears I may allow it to sync to Bēhance, or I must resize and upload manually. Am I missing something here, because I would have expected to be able to click a "Sync to Portfolio" check box against any number of LR Collections and LR get on with it?

    If you're wanting a simple web site, Portfolio might be worth trying. It strikes me that the easiest ways to get photos to it are:
    • From your lightroom.adobe.com account, where you can select pictures you've synced to LrMobile and choose to send them to Portfolio
    • Directly in Portfolio, where you can directly access pictures you've already synced to LrMobile. You create a new "project" and it displays an Add Media panel which lists Lightroom and opens a window into your lightroom.adobe.com account where you can choose which pictures to add to the web page.
    So it sounds like you're looking for a direct Lightroom Desktop to Portfolio link, when in fact it's a matter of syncing to Lightroom Mobile, then making it communicate with Portfolio.

    Makes sense?

    Thanks for this. I've activated Sync and now have a Portfolio website (of sorts). I'm finding it a little confusing, but it works. For example, its not clear if it uses the already Sync'd images or if it re-uploads a full size image from Lightroom. I'll stick with it till I discover any real problems.
