Can you post a screenshot of your export settings, particularly the image sizing section?
I tried a trial version of lightroom 6 and edited hundreds of photots i need to find out the export files are small unprintable, about 600 kbs. So I bought lightroom 6 hoping to save my edits on all the photos. However with my purchase over a week ago, my photo exports are still around 600 kbs. Unprintable! I am signed on and registered. Whats happening?.
This is a complete misunderstanding. There is nothing about 600kb that indicates either unprintable or printable. The file size simply does not indicate anything about printability.
Perhaps you could explain more about what you are looking for when you print (you know, like paper size, for example 4inches by 6inches, or whatever). The usual criteria is that you need 300 pixels per inch (not a certain number of kilobytes), so in the example, 4x6 turns into 1200pixels X 1800pixels. If your 600kb image has that many pixels, you're good! But the only way to know is to look at the number of pixels and not the kilobytes.
Sounds like you were in the Library module and chose to Export with a preset or export to email. Either way, your "Export Presets" were set to reduce the size of the exported image to about 600k.
In Lightroom, in the Library module and under the File menu, select just the word Export. That will open up another dialog box. GO through each option of that dialog box to select where you want to export the file, what color space to use, what name to give each file, what meta data to include, and be sure to select the export size! I am including a couple of screen shots for your reference.
If you export the exact same way several times, you can create your own Export preset to make this process faster.
Just as a note, in the example above adobeRGB might not be the correct choice for the colour space: check with your print supplier first as to what colour space they require!
Thanks everyone for your comments. As a new comer to lightroom this was very helpful. I was able to increase the image quality of my exports.
