I love Lightroom, but I am having to size all my pictures from a photo session at 11x14, and as far as I can tell there is no way to crop a certain size in lightroom. So I am having to work in lightroom and then save and then crop it in Photoshop which messes with the pic. Is there anyway to crop pictures to a certain size in Lightroom?

Yes...crop to a ratio of 11x14 and then export at whatever size you want.

Thank you so much for the info, it is helping, but the only problem I am having now is that the dimensions are not coming out right. They are coming out 3300x4191. Am I doing something wrong or is it ok?

You cropped to 11:14 aspect ratio? If so, what were your export options?

Ok I think I figured it out, instead of putting 1:1.27 when I crop, I just put 11:14 instead and then export it. Ok, thank you sooo sooo sooo very much for helping me.

When you crop, you decide the shape of the photo. When you export or print, you decide the size, and can not change the shape during export or print. 16x20 is the same as 10,0:12,5, so enter custom crop. Then print or export to your preferred size.
