This website was first constructed in 2013 using Adobe Lightroom utilizing clever CEx plugins from 'The Turning Gate'. In 2018 the site was redesigned using Backlight. Pictures are exported from Lightroom using a Publisher plugin from Turning Gate. This plugin sends the pictures directly to the web server. This results in a slim and easy workflow.
I keep all my 70'000 plus pictures in Lightroom Classic which is my central repository and distribution point for pictures going to several destinations (Web, iPad, iPhone).
