Uncheck "Resize to Fit"
Thanks for your response. I tried that, but I am limiting the jpeg to 100k. It gives me a message saying it cant be done. I have been doing this for a while, and I just wish I could get LR to consider each photo individually as they are all cropped to different sizes. It was doing this before I changed the dimension size on one. Wont go back now.
LR doesn’t have a magic hidden default that you somehow switched away from and now can’t change back to. LR has various resizing options and you should be able to pick the same one you were using before.
By “different sizes” do you mean “different aspect ratios” – some more square some more rectangular, or do you mean different pixel dimensions—some 4000 pixels wide and some 800 pixels wide?
From what you say LR is telling you, if you are trying to keep your photos within a particular file-size yet they are too large of pixel dimensions and you don’t want to change the pixel dimensions, then it won’t work, which sounds like what your issue is. When you tell LR to keep things within a particular filesize it reduces the quality down until it finds a filesize that is just less than the filesize limit you’ve indicated, or it has used the lowest quality setting and the file is still too big, which sounds like your situation.
Thanks, that makes sense.
