I have found that if I straighten a photo in Lightroom and then export it, it will not print correctly. The photo will print with the edges of the photo not straight with the borders of the paper. The angle the photo is printed askew is the same angle that I used to straighten the photo.
This is only apparent on prints with borders, but I assume it is happening on borderless prints as well.
I would like to make a second version of an 80 page Blurb book I built in Lightroom 5. Can I make a duplicate of the existing book (like a vritual copy, etc) so that I don't have to build the second version from scratch? The first version is an enhanced ebook with video and a lot of double truck images, and the second will be for PDFs, omitting the video pages and 2 page spreads.
The last 2 weeks I spent creating a photobook (30x30cm), 100 pages. To have a faster start, I've duplicated a book project that was created with Lightroom 4 and edited this.
Unfortunately I cannot export the new book. Neither as PDF (tried several settings) or JPG, nor can I upload it to Blurb directly. Whenever I press any of the available "Export to PDF" or "Upload to Blurb" Buttons, simply NOTHING happens. No activity bar in the top left corner, no "Please wait" or whatsoever window. Simply no response from the software. I can continue working with Lightroom, the speed is the same (which means no background process like image conversion) has been started.
To reproduce the error, I've created a new book with LR 5 quickly. "+" Button in Collections > "Create new book" > added 20 pages, filled them randomly with photos (that have been part of the old book projects, too) "Export to PDF" > A new window opens, where to save the PDF. Perfect. Works as desired. "Upload to Blurb" > "Buy the book" windows opens, where i have to enter my Blurb Username and Password. Correct behaviour.
Back to the formerly created book (the LR4 duplicate). Same error: No response. I let LR5 create all necessary 1:1 previews, again > Nothing. Exited Lightroom and restarted it > Same problem. Restarted Windows and Lightroom > No export of the book. This happens to all my book projects that were created using Lightroom 4 and below.
OS: Windows 7, 64 bit (all updates) Lightroom 5, 64 bit (including the new "ui.dll" file to prevent random crashes issue in Library Module), no active Plug-ins PC: I-7 3930 K (Socket 2011), 32 GB RAM, Geforce GTX 570
I'd like to hear if anyone has any experience with Lr books. At 35 to 50 bucks each and the hundreds of pages buying the wrong one or many could make a major hole in ones Latte' budget and the time to enjoy them.
In short: experience and recommendations.
Oh yeah, I read the manual that comes in the box, took 15 minutes and was of nearly no use.
I am working on a MacBook Pro running 10.7.4 using CS6 and ACR 7.1.
I was shooting video with the 5DIII yesterday and shot a few stills as I was working. I shot in RAW for the stills. When I look at the still image in Photo Mechanic, I see the full image and Photo Mechanic tells me it's 5760x3840 in size.
When I open the image in Photoshop 6 using Camera Raw it shows up cropped 5760x3240 - the 16x9 video crop. But I can't get to the full image - the crop tool in Camera Raw doesn't let me reveal anymore of the image. How to see the whole photo.
I am relatively new to Photoshop, and am using CS3. I would like to be able to create a collage with a background image, with superposed layers that are each an image cropped to a circle or ellipse. I found an article on how to do this with a heart shape using Photoshop Elements. He...using-Elements), but after a few paragraphs, the controls specified there do not correspond with CS3.
Preferably I would like each circle to be framed with a relatively thin colored border, to set them apart from each other and the background. Outside the border, the circular layers should be transparent.
I understand that I can create a simple circular shape that will show up as a layer and have a corresponding path, and that I can make a selection from the path.
I am fairly new to elements and I am having problems with resizing my images. I have cropped some images and want to upload them to say 'photobox' but I can't seem to get the images into the correct size for printing I.e 6x4, 7x5 etc. I have also noticed that I start with an image that is say 7mb in size yet when it has been edited and uploaded it is 700k and rated as a medium quality image ?
When merging groups in Photoshop CS6 (Command-E), the images are now being cropped to the document edge. I need to retain the image data for repositioning/sizing. This was not default behavior in previous versions and I can't find an option to change it.
When an image is cropped using the cropping tool to a preset aspect ratio (without specifying a resolution), the resolution of the cropped image is different than the original. I'd like to be able to understand exactly how this new resolution is determined and be able to calculate it myself. The help section of the software just says, "If you use a preset size, the resolution changes to fit the preset." But I'd like to know the details of how the resolution changes.
How the resolution of the cropped image is determined in Photoshop Elements?
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.
