When you "save the picture" , are you using the Print module with "Print to JPG" option selected, and the "Print to File" button?
yes, under print job jab, "Print to: JPEG File" is selected.
I can not say why you are having the problem, but my procedure works for me as expected-
1. In the print module, use a template for two images, or design your own in Custom Package. Use your edited images.
2. Print to JPG.
3. Import the new jpg file, (or synchronize the folder) to see it in grid view.
4. Export the new jpg file with your options.
My library thumbnail of my test-
how do you export? thats my problem. i only see the option to "save file" when i hit "print to file..." at the bottom right of the page and i lose edits this way. how do i export like in the library
There is not an "Export" option from the Print module, so you need to understand that "Print to JPG" is in fact creating (or 'sending') a new image file somewhere in your computer. You should also have selected all the printing options in the print panels, just as you would if you were printing on your own attached printer.
When you click on the "Print to File" button, Lightroom should offer you a dialog to save the new (dyptych) image in a folder of your choice with a name of your choice. Note: You must remember where you saved this new image file!
This new image file will not appear in the Lightroom library, so to have it appear in your Lightroom library you must either use the "Import" module, or the "Synchronize Folder" option- Locating the new file or folder where you saved it! Only after this will you see it in Lightroom, where you will now have access to all Export functions to resize, etc.
If you do not need to see it in Lightroom- there is no need to import it, just use your computer system file finder to locate the JPG file to send, print, email, etc.
ok thank you so much. ill try this
