Hi I am not sure if you can help me or not. I have the newest lightroom which I am still learning to use. I always used photoshop only up until this point to do all of my editing. I know I know I have been wasting time lol. Anyhow, I imported my jpegs into light room and edited them I then exported them. The file sized increased somehow from the size i imported them in. So I then exported them again and decreased the quality from 100 to 55 and it made them smaller. I would leave them all as huge files but I can't load to my pixieset gallery hosting. I do need to keep them big high res files for printing for my clients. Anyhow my question is what am I doing wrong? I need a step by step guide on the basics of importing and exporting high res images for my clients to be able to bring large. Also, are there any rules I need to know so i am saving correctly. i am used to editing in photoshop and then just pressing save and that is that. Soon I plan to shoot in raw and i need the step by step guide on how to import, edit and export those files as well. Thanks so much!!!
You can create an export pre-set. Let's say you need your images to be 600x600, in the export dialog you can set it all up and save it as a pre-set. Export your pics and upload. Meanwhile, your originals are safe and sound. so, you only need to keep the original image and export copies as needed, does that make sense?
my thing is i need help with knowing what the best sand typical size should be for high res printing and then i would love to learn how to do the preset:)
Hi res printing is normally 300 ppi and whatever dimensions you are printing. You can create that as a pre-set, too.
