    Exporting from LR

    ginys

      Can someone tell me how to export a edited photo so that I can print it in a certain size, let's say 11x14, without having to crop the shot to do this?

       

      I am shooting with a Canon 5dmkii so the resolution shouldn't be a problem. I just cannot figure out how to export the shots properly!

       

      Thanks in Advance!

          11 x 14" prints will require some cropping. So the best thing to do would be to crop the image in Lightroom first and then export the cropped image without doing any resizing. You should still have plenty of pixels remaining to support that size. By cropping in Lightroom, you can ensure that you include everything and compose the image to your satisfaction.

            You can choose a template in the Print module and in the print job tab, change from Printer to jpeg file and export. But you will get white borders as the original (Canon) aspect ratio is probably 3:2. Otherwise export at 11 X 16.5

              Logically, the only way to get 11x14 is to crop, or to leave white space on the print. This has nothing to do with Lightroom itself, this is just plain physics.

               

              So it's not clear what you are doing, whether or not white space on the print is acceptable, or why you are opposed to cropping.
