If you export files in LR using resize based on length of "short edge", LR will still export files at 100% size. This is regardless of camera. I'm using LR 5.3 in 64 bit version for Windows 7.

Sorry but I don't think this is a bug. It works fine here.

I recommend you reset your preferences file?

I should have been more specific. Bug occurs when 'do not enlarge' is checked. This combination used not to be a problem, but now it is in 5.3.

Yes, when you include all the steps, then the bug is apparent. I can confirm as well on Win 7 with the "Do Not Enlarge" option checked. (an option I have never seen the need to check...)

A couple of similar variations of this bug, all involving "Don't Enlarge" being checked, were detected and reported during the 5.3 RC, but unfortunately too late for a fix to be included in the 5.3 Final. Hopefully in 5.4....

If y'all can enumerate problem cases, I can have them fixed in 'Exportant', for the mean time..

Latest version of Exportant will correct this problem:

Image sizing problem on export in LR5.3 on windows 8.1.


In LR5.3 when exporting the "image sizing" settings are ignored when the option not to enlarge images is selected, resulting in a too big image.
If the option is deselected, the resolution is reduced as intended.

Lightroom 5.3 Export bug report.


LR 5.3 Export to Hard Drive settings not working correctly. When check "Resize to Fit" and specify a size (long edge = x pixels) along with checking "Don't enlarge", it ignores your resize setting and exports the file as shot.

I can NOT confirm problem when using long-edge (and "don't enlarge") - problem only apparent to me when using short-edge. win7

Anybody else?

I mean, I'll roll additional fixes into Exportant, but if I don't have problem it's hard to be sure of testing...

Rob, the "long edge" problem always occurs whenever I test it, but only when the specified long edge is greater than the image's short edge (with "Don't Enlarge" checked of course), i.e. if I export a 5760 x 3840 image, and specify a long edge of 4000 (just needs to be > 3840) then the image is exported at full size. Reduce the long edge so that it is < 3840 and the file exports correctly.

There's also a problem when specifying "megapixels" in the resize box:

From a quick test it would seem that ANY value below the actual MP size will produce a full-size export.

Thanks Jim, (all of those problems confirmed now...)

Version 6.7 of Exportant fixes wrong dimensions bugs, with "Don't Enlarge" checked:
* Long-edge
* Short-edge
* Megpixels.

Rob,
I did some tests a few days back and posed the circumstances of the Long Edge (and short edge) bug here...

Thanks Alister :-)

I think I've got a handle on it now, and all of these Lr5.3 export size bugs have a work-around/fix via Exportant 6.7 now. Presumably Adobe will fix properly come Lr5.4.

Cheers,
Rob

LIGHTROOM 5.3: Plroblem with resezing in the export routine..

I have the same problem but the plugin don't fix mine.

What happens to me is that Long-edge / Short-edge is seemed to be stuck as the Height. Like the text box for Long/Short-edge is the same for Height in Width & Height.

In fact, when I change the Long/Short-edge number and then change to Width & Height (or the other way around), the content of that text box don't change!

It don't work on LR 5.0 nor it's updated version LR 5.3.

If you want to reproduce the bug (I don't know if this is really the way to do that), try to use Width & Height and then use again Long/Short-edge. Do it at your own risk.

I can't go back, it's frustrating! :(

If the problem is UI, you can get around by editing export preset with text editor (.lrtemplate file).

I was encountering a bug whereby lightroom 5 (LR5) wouldn't output filesize limited files (cannot create a jpeg that met your limit of x). i found out that this was because the Do Not Enlarge box- if you untick that, Lightroom will take your size requirements into consideration properly and be able to output without issue.

tried to make above blurb as SEO friendly as possible because there seems to be no other info about LR5.3 giving the "Cannot create a jpeg that met your limit" error
