    I use an automatic upload which is managed by one of Jeffrey Friedl's Many Plugins, In Lightroom, I simply move an image into a collection and publish, and the file and the metadata I specify is uploaded into the correct section of the any changes to the file in future will trigger a re-upload of the as you say, but only if the changes are of a certain level, which is set by myself, so a minor change to something like a star rating or addition of a metadata correction or edit will not trigger an upload. I can of course override this and manually upload a changed file if I deem it necessary, (which is the way all auto systems should be )
    Which plug-ins?
    My system of working has been tuned, for me, over a number of years, and it works well for me - all my file names available to Windows explorer are simply the time and date that the image was taken, and are sorted by a folder tree based on Year - Month - Day, no content info is included in the filename, as all image files are fully tagged with Metadata (auto and manual), and I use Lightroom to manage the images - which allows me to find any file by any Metadata combination that I need.
    Not for everyone, but it shows what is important, as you say, you have to spend time to think of a system that will work work for your individual needs. Mine has evolved over the years and will likely continue to do so as the technology advances
    +1 to everything you said. I have also worked out a personal-preference workflow for Lightroom. It is for the end-to-end post-photo workflow, powerful and complex. I think of it as Adobe's "answer" to Microsoft Word but for photography.

    There is a specific Plug in for management of the Ipernity site that I use which is one of several Export and Publish plugins, Jeffrey Friedl's Blog >> Jeffrey’s Lightroom Goodies (Plugins and Tools), there are also some less powerful export only plugins available.
    I also keep a copy of the Metadata Wrangler handy as it allows a lot of little "Nice-to-Have" capabilities.

    The nice thing about Jeffrey Friedl is that he just requests a "Gift" to unlock the full functionality, after the trial, the gift starts at $0.01so hardly a break the bank option, ( I always send more than that )
