Adobe Lightroom Tips: Lightroom Export (Image Sizing)

After done working on our images in develop module, we might want to share it. Be it in prints, or to upload it on any website.

To go to export dialog, hit CTRL + Shit + E / CMD + Shift + E.

As we scroll down the menu, theres a title “Image Sizing”

This feature is pretty useful for us to determine what are the appropriate output for different usage.

Let’s say you and to export and share it on Facebook

Click on Resize To Fit and select dimension

I choose 2048 x 2048 pixel with resolution of 72.

Make Image format is set to JPEG sure in the “File Setting”  and select sRGB as your color space because most of the website recognize sRGB rather than AdobeRGB (1998). But if you do, the websites will automatically strips down the color space and change it with sRGB and there you will see the image might look slightly different than it suposed to be  when the image are uploaded.

Hit the export and now the image are ready to be uploaded to any website

Some stock images requires us to submit at least 4 megapixel image. In this case, go back to the Image Sizing in Export dialog.

Check the Resize to Fit and select Megapixel. And you know what to do after this step. 🙂

Just in case you want to export multiple image with different types of layout (landscape & portrait). It is a total mess to play around by specifying sizes in dimension, width & height. The trick here is to key in the long side for example 10×10 inch or you can try Long Edge or Short Edge, and this is going to put your nerves away.
