    I have used the WP/LR sync plugin since I started using WP in 2015. I could not manage the number of photos and sites I have without it.

    The File Explorer in the media bin is invaluable for filtering your images on your website.

    A couple of less known uses:
    1. The plugin will upload videos to your website as well, so add the videos to a collection in Lightroom, and be sure to adjust your Publish settings as the video files can be large.

    2. You can also upload .png files from Lightroom with wp/lr sync as long as you temporarily change the file type to original in the Publish settings in Lightroom. So add them to a collection, like “website branding”, switch the Publish Settings to original file, publish your pngs, then switch the file type back.

    So you should be able to keep all of your imagery organized between LR and WordPress.

    One recommendation for users:
    When naming your galleries/collections in Lightroom, include the gallery ID. You need this gallery ID for the gallery shortcode, and including it in the name makes it easy to find when you are in the media tab, and you will not always need to go back to the wp/lp sync>galleries tab to find it.

    Support is great and personal.
