Where are you? Export? Or print? Export shouldn't be a problem to do tiny web size pictures - you can even specify them in pixels.

I'm in the print module in Lightroom. I'm trying to change custom dimensions to a value lower than 10.16cm or 4 inches. I'm trying to design small web templates fir my blog. And don't want to use any other software. Thanks D

Print won't let you go down smaller, but if you just design your layout with excess white space round the edge, print that to JPEG, then you could import those resulting JPEGs, crop them and use Export to get your small files. That's the only way you'll do it without using other software I think.

Thanks Victoria but i can't have a white boarder due to the way I attach my Images on a web blog. I can't believe there is no work around for this as I love designing my blog in Lightroom.

You'd crop off the white border in the second step, before you export. So design them much higher res than you need in Print, then downsize while cropping.

Or actually, you could print to JPEG without white space (but just much higher res), import that JPEG into LR and export again at a smaller size. That'd work without having to crop.
