Publish To YouTube And Vimeo
After doing some test exports using the Publish tab, I have to admit I do enjoy some of the features, particularly publishing to Creative Cloud. There's definitely satisfaction in performing two tasks (export and upload) simultaneously. In fact, you can expect a dedicated post on this feature and it's workflow applications along with a new brotorial.

What do you think of publishing to the web on export? Is it a step towards the future? How have you integrated this feature into your workflow? Leave a comment! Thanks for reading!
