I recently upgraded to Illustrator CS6, and suddenly clients have been remarking that the file sizes are wrong or there's "a ton of white space around the logo." I checked it out, and sure enough, it appears that whenever I export a file, it does not crop it to the image boundary like it used to, even if I had manually adjusted the artboard to fit closely around it. After a bit of trial and error, I discovered that I have to click "Use Artboards" on the Export dialog each time. The super annoying part is that it doesn't STAY checked, AND it adds a number to the end of the file name. So I often forget to check it (not used to the extra step in workflow), and if I make a modification to the file, I can't just export over the previous version. It requires me to export it, go find it in finder, and manually delete the extra number off the file name. The extra steps are adding way too much time when I'm saving out many files. I'm about ready to go back to my previous version just from this alone.
Is there an easier way to do this? It seems like the addition of this feature would only cause extra problems...
I'm been humming along just fine in Lightroom 5 until this morning. I might explain that I have been using an old iMac. The speeds been killing me so I decided to use my new MacBook Pro and get a display with it. So this weekend I set up the MacBook Pro with LR presets etc. I use an exteral HD for my photos. Since that drive was getting pretty full. I purchased a new one and copied my photos to it. In LR on the MacBook Pro, I clicked "find my photo" and it did. After that I did some editing and exporting. This morning, I couldn't export or edit in the development module. I still have my old iMac installed and I noticed I can't export from it either. Not sure what I need to do to use it.
I have been successfully using Lightroom 4 for several weeks (and the Beta version before that), but today, after downloading the Nik Software Viveza plug in, when I tried to open LR, none of my images were there, and when I clicked on a module, I received an error message saying there was an error trying to change modules. Not sure what to do. I've uninstalled Viveza, but that did not fix the problem. I've rebooted many time, that also didn't solve this issue. I also tried opening a backup from yesterday, but that doesn't work either. I use a MacBook Pro and am running Lion.
I'm thinking I may want to uninstall LR 4 and reinstall..
I seem to have a bug in my Lightroom 5.3 program in that I am no longer able to export photos either to my desktop or to a portable stick. I'm now getting the following message each time I try to export any photos.Unable to Export. An internal error has occurred. WIN32 API error 2 (" The system cannot find the file specified").
Recently I upgraded to Lightroom 5.0. I have been noticing that when I export images at 1000px max and 100% quality, the image is very grainy. I can open that same image in Photoshop CC from Lightroom, resize the image to 1000px max, and save, and the image looks great.The first photo is the Lightroom 5.0 export. The second is the Photoshop CC resize and save. never had this issue with any earlier version of Lightroom and I have been using it since version 1.0.
Something went wront on an ingest of my images. I think I tried correcting it by going into my /workingfiles folder were they were stored and deleting them manually. I'm sure I checked to see if I could do it through Lightroom, but maybe I missed the folder they were put in. I am guessing that is what happened so Lightroom still has a small image of them somewhere and will no longer let me re-import them.

I have a Canon Rebel. I am using Mac OS X Lion. When I download my Raw images onto my computer, they are just black squares where the pictures should be. I have tried in Lightroom 3, Lightroom 4, and iPhoto. All the same thing....
When I import images into Lightroom 4 I always automatically backup to my external drive. I then edit my images and usually end up rejecting about 1/3 to half of my images. I delete these permenantly from my PC and the L4 catalogue. BUT they still appear to remain on my backup drive which is now innevitably full. Is there a quick and easy way of deleting these rejected images or syning the master files with the catalogue to free up nearly half of my backup drive?
There used to be a circle onscreen that you could turn to change the amount of blur. And there were lines and or oval areas that could be made bigger or smaller to influence the area of blur. And while there are still pins that can still be placed to further control the blur, they don't really work. I also have the same problem with the new lighting effects as well.
I'd like to export images from Lightroom 4 with a watermark. It COULD be text, but I want to rotate the watermark 30 degrees. I can't see a way to do that in the watermark editor in Lightroom...
Alternatively, I created the watermark in Photoshop, put in the text, rotated it, and saved it as a jpeg. I can't get a clear background. It appears jpeg doesn't support that. SO, I saved it as a .png (jpg and png appear to be the only two formats supported for a graphic watermark in Lightroom). It looks FINE, except in Photoshop the text is WHITE, which is what I want in Lightroom, but every time I open the .png file in the watermark editor in Lightroom, it comes in with BLACK text...
How do I get a Lightroom export watermark with the text I want in the font I want, angled the way I want?
I've Created a droplet and tested it successfully in Photoshop, then I use this droplet by select it in Post-Processing when I export DNG to TIFF in Lightroom, but there's a problem:
1. If PS is not opened when I'm exporting images in LR, the droplet will work well, i'll get an processed TIFF
2. If PS is opened before I'm exporting images in LR, the droplet won't work, then I get an unprocessed TIFF
Due to Situation 1, if PS is not opened when I'm exporting images and I tried to exported 30 images with droplet, finally I'll get only ONE image successfully processed, because PS was opened when LR export the first image.
I edit an image in Lr5, and it's crips and perfect. But then I export it and it's hazy and out of focus looking. I've tried exporting it as a psd, then opening it in ps and changing it to jpeg....it's a TAD more clear...but nothing like it is in lightroom. All of my settings are set like they "should" be as far as I know. jpeg, 300ppi, quality is at 100... all of that.
Here's a screenshot of what it's doing... (the one on the right is in lightroom and the left is the opened jpeg after I export it)
When I try to export an image without LR adjustments (original or copy) from LR5 to Photoshop CC, I get this message: "Adobe Photoshop CC cannot be opened because of a problem. Check with the developer to make sure Adobe Photoshop CC works with this version of OS X..."
I'm running 10.8.5 on an iMac and have the latest updates of Photoshop CC and LR 5 installed.
Exporting large file sizes. In short I'm trying to export some images for large format printing but am having trouble preparing the right size in LR4.
Specifically I'm trying to produce w 30" x h 20" images. I understand that to do this I'll need a image that is 9000 x 6000 pixels set at 300 ppi. My problem is that when I export this, with the dimensions set to width and height in pixels and resize unchecked LR4 produces an image that is 9000 x 4887?
what i'm doing wrong here? Is it simply that the aspect ratio of image is wrong to produce this size image? My concern is not producing an exact file size for printing.
I'm trying to export images with lightroom but i need to have exact final dimension(s). I mean, may be I need *exactly* 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 pixel final jpg dimensions, so i need a way for having automatic black borders added to the image if it does not match proportions - as you probably have understood images have to be shown on different screen/monitors and I have troubles with automatic zooming fitting and proportions. ?
I can't do photo by photo due to the fact i have hundred(s) of images to export.
I use the Lightroom 4.1 export feature to export my HDR panorama images as 16 bit tiff in a temporary folder and after that to open the images automatically in PtGui Pro 9.1.x. The problem is if I export more than 25 images PtGui Pro starts one time for the first 25 images, then a second time for image #26 till 51, and so on. This happens during all my test with multiple image formats like 8 bit tiff with/without compression or with jpegs. It makes no difference whether the temporary folder is located on an SSD or a regular hard drive.
Additional I tested LR4 Export to Hugin 2011.4.0 (32Bit) and Gimp 2.8 (64Bit) and the result is the same like with PtGui Pro: After the 25th image a new instance of the program started.
Because of this behavior in different programs, I must assume that the fault must be with Lightroom. Is there any hardcoded limits by handover of pictures to external programs?
(Windows 7, Lightroom 4.1 and PtGui Pro 9.1 are 64 Bit versions)
