Lightroom Desktop: Additional options needed when exporting

I ask because when you export in Lightroom CC, called "save to," the only parameter you can adjust is the pixels. Nothing else that I can see. In other versions of Lightroom you get a whole bunch of parameters to adjust, including DPI. Clients specify sometimes the settings that they want. Or another possibility is that I'm doing it wrong, and if so, could someone let me know how to export and adjust things like DPI.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Export files in TIFF setting color depth, dpi, sharpening level..

I would like to edit photos in Lightroom mobile for my Ipad Pro (great with such a fantastic pen) but is a shame not to being able to save the pics in formats different by jpeg or png for edited version of the picture.

Why don't make possible to have an Ipad limited version with, for export, setting like TIFF, color depth, dpi or sharpening for print/screen?

This would change the workflow of many thousand users of Lightroom for Ipad pro, being able to fully develop pictures on mobility!

Thanks!

When using the ‘Save To’ function in Lightroom Cloud and saving the photo as a JPEG please can you allow
1. The photo to keep its geo location data
2. The photo taken date to be kept as per the date the photo was taken and not the date the JPEG was created
3. Allow us to re-name the file as part of the saving process. For example save the name as ‘01 - summer fun’ and allow the numbers to increase automatically with exact photo exported.

There are all features from Lightroom in 2015 and the geo location data was kept in the previous version of the Lightroom app earlier in 2019.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic: Lightweight export.

 I'm a sports photographer and can end an event with several thousands of photos. I'd like the ability to be exporting one batch while editing the next set in Lightroom Classic. However, the export step hogs up so many resources that I can't effectively edit any more photos until it is done. My computer is reasonably capable and has lots of RAM. It would be nice to have the export feature be something that could run with lower priority so I could still perform edits.

I’m not sure who merged the last thread but 1. It’s for a different application than this thread(they’re talking about Classic and this thread relates to cloudy) 2. It’s unrelated

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Add auto cropping and sizing to Lightroom.

As a photographer working for a media agency, we have to export our images from lightroom and resize and crop for all the different social media and ad platforms individually. It would help streamline our workflow so much if we could export from lightroom those formats for web.

As I said, the app needs more export options and the ability to export at better quality/less compression, like the Lightroom Classic on desktop.

HEIC/HEIF provides superior compression without compromising the image quality much in comparison to JPG. So, it'd be really nice to have this as an export option.

Adobe has made it clear that any export setting at all on Lightroom CC would be blasphemy

No, it's a valid feature request, it's just not there yet.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Mobile (Android): Keep the original filename..

When exporting image in Lightroom Mobile (Android), it renames the original filename to be something like*Export* which is extremely inconvenient and annoying. Especially when you export hundreds of images on the mobile, you lose the track of which image is what. Keeping the original filename is "logical" and convenient. Also, it'll eliminate the need for a second and needless export on the desktop version in order to have the original filenames!

I want to switch to Lightroom CC from Desktop but this is one of the main reasons why I can't. Not being able to set the file name and export options is stunning in a very bad way!!

I end up with files from 1mb to 30 mb. It seems like a lottery. Never know what I'm gonna get.

I can't believe Lightroom CC doesn't have decent export as... file type and quality options yet. This is a must-have feature!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Export File Name Format Option in Lightroom CC; as it is in Classic.

I work with a team of 35 other photographers who all use Lightroom Classic in their workflow. For most of us, we would rather be using the newer Lightroom CC version, so that we can work seemlessly between our Desktop devices and our portable devices (iPads etc).

However, we are restricted to Classic for the simple fact that CC doesn't offer the option to export with a certain file name format. We compile our photos into a single database and organise them into Date and Time using the file name format:

Date (DD) Date (Month) Hour-Minute-Second NAME

This helps keep our database in a readable structure.

If this option was available on CC I'm sure more of us would use that as our editing software, as we find its such more satisfying and speedy for our personal work (lots of us use it when we're working separately for photos that aren't going into the Database.

Does anyone have any idea of a workaround for this? Currently my only option is to export from CC, and import back into Classic, simple to change the file name; which just isn't worth the extra import+export time sadly.

You can sync iPad iOS Lightroom to Lightroom classic as well. I do this. I work in the field with my iPad, with images sent from my DSLR. They sync from iOS iPad Lightroom to Lightroom Classic on my laptop, and I can then export them the way I want it.

Hi Alex! I don't normally use LR CC to export & share images, but tested the latest version on my Android tablet: it exports photos (via the Save to device option) with a really odd name:

LRM_EXPORT_[15 seemingly random digits]_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS[4 digits]].jpeg

It's not explicitly useful, and I could find no clear way to specify an alternative. If it's the same on the iPad, then I guess you're looking for a way to get an exported image with the format you already use for naming files during import (as you specified above), correct?

If so, then I have a few things to consider.

If you're willing to do this one photo at a time, then you could export and just use the existing iOS Files app to rename the photo. The date appears in the default exported filename, so you can export/download each photo in LR CC then switch to the Files app and rename each photo in turn.

If you need to do this with a batch of photos at once, then you'd need an iOS app that supports batch renaming with variables. Hopefully someone else can help with this (from a quick Google search, I couldn't find any that seemed reputable - which is odd for an Apple product), and I don't have an iPad to test.

The only other workaround I can suggest is to go to the Lightroom for Web CC (LRfW) interface instead using your web browser (lightroom.adobe.com and login with your Adobe ID) and open the photo there. Then save/export the photo from there using the Download this photo icon (below the Share icon on the rightside taskbar). For some odd reason, LRfW provides the same number of limited exporting options as LR CC app but the default file name is [Filename].jpeg - so you'd get your exported image with the same naming convention as your LR Classic CC import convention. That way you don't have to do any file renaming. The only downside is that even though you can select multiple photos in LRfW when viewing all photos in an album (or collection) by ticking the auto-hidden selection tick-box in the upper right corner of each photo on the grid, LRfW does NOT provide the Download this photo option in its list of actions - so you can't currently batch export multiple photos. Also, I haven't tested to see if LRfW automatically uses the photo's Title metadata (if not blank) instead of the Filename, so do your own testing first.

Hope this helps.

Just re-read your message, Alex - my last tip won't work without the photo being in Adobe's CC storage. So I'm not sure what you mean by 'processing photos that don't need to go in the database' but if you meant you'd like to use the LR CC app to edit a photo without syncing it to your Adobe CC storage (is that possible?) and then export from there, my tip won't work for you. You'd need to sync the photo first (so it's available on LRfW) and then use my workaround: once the photo is synced, it will automatically be added to your LR Classic catalog (i.e. its database) through the cloud...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Need option to save images in 300dpi in LR CC..

Really need the option to save images in 300dpi in LR CC. Print shops and editorial want 300dpi but LR CC only saves in 240dpi. I don't want to switch to classic or have to edit in photoshop all the time, Can you please give this option to save as 300dpi to speed up work flow.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled compression?.

My photos are about 32mb when I add to lightroom and when I export they're only about 3mb! I'm not sure about how much quality is lost but not so much compression would be nice!

Would be great to have at least the control on:
export sharpening like lightroom classic
at least tiff 16bit

Now with IpadOS , lightroom cc will be my first approach to for the editing and would be great to stop the need to go on desktop for a simple high quality export.
