Lightroom :: 5.3 Export With Resize Option Not Resizing?
Dec 17, 2013
Just updated my LR to 5.3 from the CC and noticed a weird problem that I never encountered before in LR4 or 5.x (before 5.3 that is). I usually export pictures from RAW format to either TIFF or JPG (100% quality) and depending on purpose I use batch resizing, e.g. 1080 pixels on short edge ... well that whole Resize setting gets ignored by LR 5.3! It still exports full size (full RAW size in this case) into JPG or TIFF, but it won't resize .
I found out that I checked the "Don't enlarge" box in Export dialog under Resizing, that's when resizing was not working. After I unchecked it then it works fine, but still what does that have to do with anything if we are talking about downsampling images from 5184x3456 pixels to 1620x1080 ...
This is such a common task, there may be cause to have a Resize option bundled with the Export command. Having to always perform them as two separate steps is an annoyance, but the possibility of accidentally saving the wrong resolution back to the XCF file is a danger.
A question that asked late last year as I had a need to resize and keep working on original. That's when I found the save for web had been reinstated as 2.6.
Part of the motivation for the save/export distinction in the firstplace is later being able to introduce such improvements to exportworkflows (as well as other neat things; like being able to choosebetween export presets, multiple named regions - and more). Without aclear conceptual internal seperation - such future improvements willbe much harder.
I've been trying to export jpeg images from LR 3, and sizing them to 1110 x 525 pixels, @ 72dpi, the dimensions of my blog header. However, despite inputing these values, the exported jpeg image is sized at 793 x525. Quality is set to 85 and nothing else is checked. Am I missing something? I've also tried the "dimensions" and the "width/height" box choices, but it always outputs at the same 793 x525.
The files are from a Nikon D2h (a little old), RAW.
Is it using the same choices as Photoshop (Bicubic Smoother for enlarging, Bicubic Sharper for downsizing)? There are times when I prefer to use Smoother even when downsizing, as the Sharper algorithm results in over-sharpening (to my taste), but there does not seem to be a way to choose a specific one. Are there any workarounds for the lack of choices in the Export module?
I have a set of images that fit within 1400x1050. I want them to fit within 1024x768. As I have done before, I set the export directory, choose 1024x768 as the export size, highlight all of the images and click export. The first image in the set shows what iis going wrong. It starts out as 680x1050 and finishes as 680x1050. Clearly this is wrong - it is not resizing.
some of the images ARE corectly resized. Random ones are not.
I take a large number of event images and the usual client request for images being sent to the press is image size rather than resolution, dimensions or other requirements.
Clearly in LR3 if the client has requested 3MB jpg the easy option is to after processing take my Canon 5d mkii RAW file and just hit export to max 3MB jpg.
My question is is it better - ie image quality better - to export by resizing longest edge to approx 3000 px and exporting to jpg which results in a similar file size, though different pixel dimensions? Or are they effectively the same?
I am having trouble with the image sizing feature of Lightroom 4.3. In working with a batch of RAW files that I am exporting as JPEGS, I want to resize some down to a smaller size yet I do not want to make the images that are already smaller than my target dimension larger, I find that Lightroom resizes everything to the dimensions I have specified. This happens even when I check the “Do Not Enlarge” box. For example, if I am exporting 100 images in a photo set of which 90 images are 5555 pixels on the long end and 10 images are 3333 pixels on the long end and I specify that I want to resize to a dimension of 4444 px, Lightroom will resize all 100 images to 4444 px, even when I have checked the “Do Not Enlarge box”. What I want Lightroom to do is resize the 5555 px images to 4444 px, but export the smaller images in their original 3333 pixel size. I thought by checking “Do Not Enlarge” the files smaller than my resize dimension, would remain smaller. However, I have recently noticed that all the images are being resized, even the smaller ones despite me checking “Do Not Enlarge”.
Would it be possible to automatically set the name of the folder in the "put in subfolder" export option, based on that image metadata (or on a preset, as it is, for example, for filenames)? Maybe a plugin? - image in "summer 2013" gets exported in "summer 2013 jpg" subfolder, where "summer 2013" is taken from the "folder" metadata and "jpg" either from the filetype or manually added.
I have the following Adobe Illustrator file: [URL] .....
I would like to copy all visible elements of this file, and paste them onto a new file whose size is that of a standard business card. To do this I create the business card AI file in illustrator and then paste the contents of the AI file listed above onto the file with the business card artboard. SINCE THE ARTBOARD IS MUCH SMALLER, I Select -> All and Resize to 2%.
A. What I don't understand is why the bordeaux square in the middle does not resize proportionally when I carry out this operation. Instead it completely shrinks to a much smaller size.
B. Furthermore, I would like to completely get rid of the orange area that falls outside of the artboard. How can I accomplish this second task?
I'm trying to find the smallest textframe within a group and then matching that textframe font size to the minimum size allowed for printing. Everything else works, except I can't figure out how to resize the textframe while also resizing its parent, the group.
(ctrl+option+drag) stopped resizing my PS brushes and now just pulls the app frame around. How to turn it back on? (this is the resize brush feature + opacity using the ctrl+option keys and a drag up/down, left/right).
In CS4 the drag-to-resize brush option should display as red (the brush preview default color) but no color shows up. Nor with the drag-to-set-hardness shortcut either. Both shortcuts work. I cannot see the hardness change on screen but a quick check of the brushes indicates that it did indeed work. Just no color indicator for either shortcut.

Using the zoom tool, there is a check box to select whether a zoom will also "Resize window to fit." Is there a way, using the _keyboard_, to select or toggle whether I want the window to resize when I use the zoom tool? I often want to go back and forth between asking for the resize and prohibiting it, but I don't want to have to go up with the mouse to click on that little check box all the time.
i have an 8 giga LR4 catalog (about 300000 images).just installed the new LR5 and tried openning the LR4 cat in LR 5.it said it needs to upgrade, but in the middle of the prosses i had this messege: "lightroom encountered problems when trying to update the format of the catalog file and cannot use this catalog in this version of LR"
i saw that there is an option to export all my LR4 catalog as a new catalog and than import it into LR5.i haven't tried that yet since i'm worry that i might loose some info. will this process (of exporting and importing) keep all my LR settings? like develop user presets, keywords and collections?
how to fix an audio issue with exporting video from Photoshop.I am choosing the quick time format however the option for sound is always grayed out. from the animation panel I have the audio enabled and I can hear it when I play back from within Photoshop.
I am using Photoshop CS4 extended on PC Windows 7.I understand the following -
-For audio I need to choose Quicktime format -Photoshop is primarily image editing software (with video capabilities)
I have a friend who is just completing a film for a public screening...(about 400 people, mostly volunteers involved in production.)He will be using a regular projector hooked up to a PC to play the video.The source footage is 1080p HD shot on a HVX200. Edited on Premiere Pro CS5.
What format should he use to export so he gets great quality but it can also play without the computer stuttering and dying etc? We've debated between H.264 (mpeg 4 file format) or DVD Blu Ray.MPEG 2 (or some Quicktime format?)
Do we choose h.264 and bump up the bitrate to maximum? Stick with the preset recommendation? There also is h.'264 bluray'..have no idea what difference that makes.
We're not experts on codecs and resolutions etc.Premiere Pro presents this plethora of options.
We want to choose....File ...Export....a format and preset (and maybe adjust a setting or two) and get the best result.
I have some fotos that are apparently too small for the 1920 x 1080 format of my film.
What do I need to master about the relationship between three items (canvas size, image size, and document size) so that I can smoothly resize a bunch of images in Photoshop for export into Premiere Pro in that 1920 x 1080 format?
I will be constraining my proportions... if the images are too big, I will do a Ken Burns "zoom out" effect in the film.
I'm trying to export 3D models from AutoCAD 2011 to AutoMod Simulation software. However, every different export filetype that I try does not allow me to bring the model into AutoMod and still have the colors that the model had in AutoCAD. For example, If I create a car and it has several colors for the metal, the wheels, and the windshield, it brings it over as a single block, all in red. I'm not sure how to fix this. In the old models, I used to use 3DSOUT command, but that doesn't look like an option any longer.
Just downloaded and installed this pack as was keen to see the Export Civil 3D drawing functionality but can't see any great advantages over the standard Export to AutoCAD option.
In fact in the drawing I tried all the surfaces were ignored whereas they were exploded to 3D faces in the standard Export optionAre there, in fact, any advantages to using the Productivity pack version of the Export to Autocad routine?
I am trying to add alt tags to objects in an InDesign CS5 project. The guidance I can find tells me to go to Object > Object Export Options.The problem I have is, there is no Object Export Options option available..
While exporting the document as jpeg, through File->Export, there is an option "Embed ICC Profile" as figure shows.
How to set it if I am exporting the document through my program in which I rasterize the document and used the sAIImage->AsJPEG(raster, jpegDataFilter, params); I didn't find any option in AIRasterizeSettings or AIImageOptJPEGParams to set this flag.
