Shared copy of Backlight

Can multiple people on different computers share the same API to upload to a common gallery (where a gallery is a collection of albums on a single website) via Lightroom?

A group of us want to cull and upload our own images to a single shared gallery. We all use Lightroom. I have told them I believe we can do this with one shared copy of Backlight, since it uses a unique API key to connect to a gallery. Am I correct in my assumptions?

Re: Shared copy of Backlight

Sort of, yes, but mostly no. Backlight expects to be connected with a single Lightroom catalog. And Publish Services are a one-way street, beginning with Lightroom and pushing content outward. In general, it's not a good idea to "fracture the stream" by attempting to manage a single publish destination from multiple sources.

As we fully rely on Lightroom's library management for wrangling Backlight's albums, we strongly advise working from a single source catalog.
