    New lightroom CC export settings?

    coleys56131712

      I have just downloaded the newest of the new versions of Lightroom CC. I love what it can do, but I can not find where to export the photo in a higher resolution than the default settings? Every forum I've looked at is the older version. Nothing is matching the newer version, and I'm so lost. I want to export the photos in 300DPI for a client. If anyone has a step by step solution to this, please let me know.

          You do mean LRCC, the new cloud-dependent program that starts up with a leaf on its splash screen? If so, there aren't any options other than those you can see. Its export choices are very limited, and as you've found you cannot see the DPI (just export the biggest JPEG you can), so except in very simple situations it's just not suitable for supplying images to clients.

            If you are working with clients, are you sure you want to be working with the new Lightroom CC as opposed to Lightroom Classic CC? The NEW Lightroom CC isn't really geared towards professional photographers right now. It might be some day, but it's pretty limited in my opinion.

              Coleys,

               

              You may not be able to specify the DPI exporting from the new Cloud Based Lightroom CC but, if the Original Resolution is in the Cloud and it’s from a dSLR I’d imagine it’s good enough quality for priinting......

               

              unless..

               

              the Photo in the Cloud is a Smart Preview synced from a Lr Classic Collection, in which case it would probably wouldn’t be.

                Yes, that's why I said "just export the biggest JPEG you can".

                 

                Still, LRCC just isn't suitable for this kind of workflow. As Jim says, "If you are working with clients, are you sure you want to be working with the new Lightroom CC as opposed to Lightroom Classic CC?"

                    In Lightroom CC, I don't think the settings you are looking for are there yet. It's not that type of application, YET.

                      I wish there were a way for Adobe to put a stop to all this mass confusion caused by naming a new product nearly exactly like a decade old one.

                      FAR too many people are under the impression that Lr CC is just a cloud based version of Classic.

                      Then there are those who know the difference but assume they can use both for the same collections/catalogs of files.

                      I seriously doubt it was ever Adobe's intention that Classic catalogs be synced and merged with those synced from other sources (devices).

                      IMO - their intent if for a person to choose which suits them best and use THAT one.

                          Not a fan at all of Lightroom CC. I don't get the oversimplification at all, or the lack of tools for either editing or exporting. Who is the audience of this product?

                            This is my opinion. The target audience for Lightroom CC is a group of people who are "on the go", and want access to their images right now, on any device, without delay, no matter what. That means on their computer, their tablet, their phone, etc. As I understand it, Adobe has a goal to have a common interface that is consistent on ALL devices. That means that regardless of whatever device you are using the interface will be the same and have the same features accessed in the same consistent manner, and for the most part be presented in the same consistent fashion. That is going to take some careful planning and design. Since I don't use a smart phone or a tablet, I can't compare those interfaces with the computer. But I assume that is why Lightroom CC has the feature set that it does at this time. The features that are now present should be available on all of those devices. As other features are "perfected" in their presentation, they too will be made available.

                              Me! I think it's great.

                               

                              The popular view is that it's for smartphone photographers. Whilst this may be a substantial user base, I do think it's a bit a of a generalisation. As a hobbyist, most of my photos are taken with my dSLR. As Jim rightly says, it mainly for those than want instant access for editing, viewing, sharing and of course storage. Also, I do not have the time to sit down at desk to learn Classic.

                               

                              And whilst Classic is one of the main choices for most, I would rather spend my time learning and trying to take better photographs.

                                FWIW, under the share option, there's small, full size, and custom, where you can designate the long side length.

                                    could one us the open in photoshop, then save it to a higher quality format other then jpeg there?

                                      From Lightroom CC it is possible to save a copy of the original along with any adjustments that have been made. Or, it's possible to save a JPEG. If you choose to open the image in Photoshop then you have those options that are available in Photoshop. But I don't use Lightroom CC that much and haven't gone to Photoshop from it and don't know what will be returned to Lightroom CC. You'll just have to try it. Saving the original plus adjustments is probably as good a choice as there is. Then you could go to Photoshop and open that image and do what ever you wanted from that point. Lot of experimenting to do. Give it a try and see what comes up.

                                        well that's confusing... so you just need to go back to the (renamed but original) lightroom to use the settings that suit a normal workflow instead of the new (but named exactly the same as the old version) lightroom that seems to have shed a whole lot of usefull features... sure that makes perfect sense Adobe - well done you!

                                          I've been using Lightroom Classic for few years now.  Since I've started to accumulate so many photos, I took advantage of a promo for 1 TB of storage for an additional $5 a month (for the first 12 months).  I decided to give Lightroom CC a try.  I do like the simplicity of Lightroom CC, but yes, lacking some key features.  I do shoot models, so I have several catalogs in Classic - can't do that in CC, nor can you "hide" folders.  I also have a need to add photos to an online digital frame and can't export the photos to do so.  I did like ease of sharing out an album (via email link).  And I do like having the photos available on any device, but I'm not sure the cost of missing key features is worth it.
