Lightroom :: 5 - How To Upload Edited Photo On Facebook Without Loosing Quality
Aug 19, 2013
I've been trying so hard to upload high quality photos on facebook but the compression used by facebook is just so bad that all the hours used to edit the photos is left in vain. There seem to be an action uploadable on Photoshop to keep the quaity of the photo before uploading it to facebook. Is there a similar action/present for lightroom 5 as well?
In Elements 11 on a Windows 8 64 bit machine. I can upload photos to Facebook using the standard quality without any problems.
However if I select the High quality option, the upload appears to work, I get the progress bar, and the done message, and if I select a new album the album is created on Facebook, but the album is empty and the photos do not appear anywhere in etiher the newly created album, or an existing album if that has been selected.
I know that Facebook reduces the resolution for Facebook cover page and profile picture. However, I have noticed that there are many Pages that uploaded beautiful Cover photo without any reduced resolution (apparently).
For example: URL....can also check out these pages, they have pretty awesome looking Timeline photos!
I've tried using the "magic" size format of 850 x 350 , but it seems that the quality will still be reduced no matter what. The above pages' photos are always pretty clear and not blur like normal pages.
I am an administrator on a Facebook business page and want to create albums and upload photos on this business page. I access the business page through my personal Facebook page. Lightroom authorizes with my personal page and I can upload photos to it no problem but I can't see how to give Lightroom access to the business page
After upgrading to LR 4.4 the publish service to Facebook semms to not work anymore.
I'm publishing from the new LR 4.4 to Facebook. I create a new Collection in LR 4.4, enters a Album name and presses the Create button. I see that the Album is created Ok on my Facebook account Then I add some pictures, and executes 'Publish now' After a minute, I gets the message the the 'Upload failed and no returning string was received from Facebook'.
I have one hard disk filling up with photos, so I have purchased a secondary hard disk to expand my storage. I would like to move my shoots from 2010 to that new hard disk, but I don't want to loose all of the edits saved on them in LR3. I have experimented with moving non-important images that have edits on them, then re-importing them. Unfortunately, LR3 does not preserve that history.
I have edited a series of photographs that I want to upload to Facebook, and it seems that any file I save from Photoshop CS6 will not upload. Facebook reports the following error:
Security Check Required A security check is required to proceed.Below is a snap shot from my Save for Web dialog box, and I don't see anything there that would prevent me from uploading the said image to Facebook
Adobe Photoshop CS6 V13.00 64bit Extended Mac OSX 10.7.4
I know I have an out dated version of VS, but all my videos are shot on a DV camera with 4.3 resolution.When I'm done editing I burn to a DVD using the VS program.
The quality of the DVD in not that good for some reason.I have checked all the properties and they seem to be right.But being a novice maybe the're not.If I save the file as an AVI then import it into another program (in this case Power Producer) to burn,I get a much better quality DVD.
PS. The reason Im sticking with VS 7 is that I can navigate around it fairly easily.Not saying Im confident, but enough to get by.May look into upgrading to a new version in the future with a new HD camera too.But for now VS 7 works fine for me.
I created an image using the new Gimp 2.8 update, but when I try to upload the image to Facebook it gets all blurry. Any other photos I upload are fine, and I made another image in Gimp 2.6 of the same size (2400 pixels x 1800 pixels) which uploads normally, but for some reason no matter what I do the new picture made in 2.8 always uploads blurry.
I exported the image to jpeg format (although I also tried png) without messing with the export settings at all. Do I need to change them to make it upload to Facebook normally?
I recently tried to upload some pictures to facebook, i created a new album and started the upload which ran no problem. But when visiting facebook the album is there but it is empty.I have tried several times all to no avail.
After editing in perfect photo I cannot unstack the edited photo in LR4. The thumbnail shows the number of photos in the stack, but right click/expand stack has no effect. The edited photo is not showing.
I am doing the artwork for an album I am working on and need some help resizing the cover image. As of right now the image is around 3000x3000 resolution, but it needs to fit on a 5.5"x5.0" template. I copied the image from photoshop into illustrator and used free transform to scale it to the correct size. However, the image was pixelated and unusable. So I basically want to know the best way to do it without losing quality. Also, should I add the text before or after its been resized?
i cannot upload photos from Elements Organiser to facebook .. the upload gets as far as 1% and sometimes 12% but stops .. message pops up saying " There was a problem with your internet connection .Please check that the firewall is not blocking Elements Organiser from accessing the internet and that you have a internet connection
1 - Firewall is not blocking EO as i turned of my firewall but still get same message. 2- Have internet access as how come i am typing this on the Adobe site.
have also tried - Edit - Preferences- Adobe Partner and refresh but still same message.
I have a problem with elements 11. I am trying to share my photos on facebook but it will not let me upload them I have activated my account and selected the photos them just comes up to a blank screen and that is a far as I can go.
Is it possible to change the resolution when exporting a photo to Facebook using either the regular plugin or Jeffrey Friedl's plugin? I can't seem to do it; I only have control over the image dimensions, not the resolution and the dimensions, as you can see in the screen shots below:
I have control over both when I export to my hard drive (or a flash drive, etc.), as you can see below:
I can't find the option to control the resolution when I try to export to Facebook. Before I got Lightroom 4, I would create whole new low-resolution files of images I wanted to post online using Photoshop. The image size settings I would use are a longest edge of 10 inches at 72ppi, and I would like to continue doing this. If I can only set the longest side to 720 pixels (I can't even seem to set the longest edge to an inches value - I can only choose a pixels value) and not change the resolution from 300ppi to 72ppi, then my photos' longest edge will only be less than 3 inches long (right?). Thus, I really want to be able to upload low-resolution photos to Facebook via Lightroom with the ability to change both the resolution and the image dimensions. How to do it without having to export to my hard drive first?
I want to resize an image without loosing picture quality but I'm not making it larger - I'm making it smaller. For example, there are small stars in the background which seem get deleted when I resize it.
But here's the thing - After resizing it (but before "confirming" my changes), it looks perfect. Then I hit enter and then it deletes certain details. Basically I can look at the image at the size and quality I want in PS but I can't save it that way. And it's not a matter of saving it with a higher quality level, it happens as soon as I resize. WTF?
I cannot upload any photos. I click import and go to the file source but it either says could not copy file to requested location, or gives me a bunch of random stuff that does not work or is not even in my files.
