Lightroom Desktop: Ability to print

We really need a "convenient" way to print.  Some of us still like to create prints to hang on a wall.  While I know the printing is still available in "classic", to be able to move forward with Adode, an integrated print function needs to be added to Lightroom CC.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Printing in Lightroom CC.

When will a printing module be added to Lightroom CC?

just started using Lightroom CC and find it unbelievable that there is no print function available.  For goodness sake Adobe, sort this out now!

Right. Strangely I was not implemented initially but more crasy nothing was done after 1 year.

Another plea - Lightroom CC is great - but printing is a must!
Why no Word from Adobe?

because, apparently, I'm an idiot:  I migrated and upgraded to LRCC.  And now I cannot print an image.  I know that maybe most people are only interested in online images, but I NEED TO PRINT - it's why I photograph!

WTF ADOBE - I give you $$$ every month and now I get nothing but edit and STORAGE!  I don't want a workaround!  I want a PRINT FEATURE - Abobe has definitely gone backwards.  GRRRRR

Affinity photo working on a DAM

Photoshop CC coming to iOS (surely a print feature will come with)

For me it’s a matter of which comes first as I solely work in iOS and LR is the only logical DAM. AP may change that, I would migrate instantly if they beat Adobe to the punch because all their products are first class... but with PS CC coming out I would drop Aff Photo and go with a seamless integration workflow in adobe.

Which ever comes first really.

Does anyone know how to get a lossless compression file out of LR CC, that also contains my edits?
It's for the purpose of printing, of course, that I wish to send the highest resolution file to a pro printing service, but I can get only jpegs and DNGs + settings, which I am really not sure how they're going to be processed. Thanks!

Go for JPEG. Unless you resave it over and over again, you won't see a difference.

Thanks Victoria. I wonder why is the ability to export lossless images not available? Is there a feature request I can up-vote?

Here's the best feature request to vote on: Lightroom CC: Additional options needed when exporting

It isn't just lossless images which is difficult, sometimes one needs to export to a particular size or quality. It seems really sad that Lightroom CC should be hampered by a very few real 'gotchas' (I really like the book module in Classic for instance).

What I don't understand is why Adobe is silent about this - IMHO they should either:

1. Say that they aren't going to put a print / export module in because it's designed that way and explain their logic

2. Say that they are going to put these features in (even if it's not imminent).

Not until I received my Canon Pro-100 printer did I even realize that Lightroom CC doesn't have a print module!  I thought certainly I'm overlooking it - nope.  I'm at a loss for words and beyond frustrated, having recently gone "all in" with Lightroom CC.  

What are you all using as a work-around?  I'm on a Mac and a total newb to printing.

Hi Sam
I'm using both Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic but leading with Lightroom CC.

I'm on a Mac as well, and if you have the photographer's subscription then you can load classic - it will sync with the collections in CC and has a fine print module.

Alternatively (perhaps easier) you can right click on an image in classic and chose 'Edit in Photoshop' this will also allow you to print.

So - there are ways around it, but it's still stupid!

Thanks Jonathan.  Unfortunately I just have a solo Lightroom CC subscription and don't have access to Classic or Photoshop.  Not interested in buying-up just to gain a printing feature that should be included in CC in the first place.  Ugh.  Guess I need to be looking at 3rd party software but have no idea where to go.  Perhaps my Canon driver disk has some bloat software I could use...

Hi Sam
Could you 'save to' a full sized jpg file and then print that in Preview (which does quite a good job of printing).

. . . . also worth considering upgrading to the 'photographer's subscription' it isn't very expensive and sometimes it's nice to have photoshop . . and then there is the book model in Classic!

Only problem with "Preview" is the inability to input DPI specs and/or ICC profiles (am I missing something?).  Looks like I'll be checking out the Photography Plan for another $10/month or some 3rd party print utility.

I can see that - might be worth checking out whether they have any deals right now? When I checked out adding 1Tb cloud storage I got the whole lot for £12 per month (CC,Classic,Photoshop,1Tb storage) not such a bad deal I reckon

After getting to know it I very much like the print functionality in Lightroom Classic. I get just the margins and photo size I want. The sharpening and contrast settings are nice to let me tweak a single print. It is also not overly complex.

When this finally comes to Lightroom CC, I hope you keep and improve on the good bits.

Being able to print with the same level of control from the iOS app would be incredible. Not sure what is possible, but something like that would be a game changer. :)

I liked printing in LR Classic also. I don’t really want LR CC. I’d happily buy Classic and just pay an upgrade fee for new versions the way it used to be. My choice now is to double my monthly subscription so I can print, or go to open source solutions such as Rawtherapee to edit my Raw files connected to GIMP for printing.

Please add printing to Lightroom CC.  You have convinced me that Lightroom CC is the way to go for my editing and storage needs, yet it lacks the basic function of producing a picture on paper. I need to be able to tweak the image just before printing and as I print if changes are needed, and I need to be in the editing program (Lightroom CC) to do so.  It appears from this string that this request has been made repeatedly for 2 years with no response from Adobe.  Not very responsive to customers.

The forum can make the dates look a little wonky. LR CC was only released October a year ago. But it's a popular request.

Victoria- Can you identify any other Photo software that does NOT have a print function? Really your support of Adobe on this issue is rather weak.
