Lightroom CC doesn't have an export function that is useful. Can't change the image title on export, can't customise the compression settings, can't export to different sizes, can't upload to a to social networks, can't apply sharpening or any filters on export.
I mean why not just go back to the Classic app but make it more connected. Lightroom Classic works well and has pro level workflows, the ONLY useful feature in CC is the ability to share an album with colleagues or clients allowing them to download images as they need direct.
All the other features are dumbed down, confusing and hobbled. It's real shame, wasted opportunity in my view.
I want to save for web in Lightroom CC Desktop. The "small" option when downloading the images is too big for my website. I need a way to reduce the resolution and size without having to go into Photoshop or Lightroom Classic.
The share option (top right button) has two options on it. I find this is annoying. I would rather have a single click operation to launch a dialogue box with a function to do a "share and invite" (who cares about this option anyway?) The dialogue also needs the ability to change the exported filename.
Hi photo lovers,
In my adoption of the newest Lightroom (cloud-based) I noticed that the Full size JPEG export file size of Lightroom is much smaller than Lightroom Classic. See screenshot below.
I use the same RAW picture, exported unedited from both Lightroom and Lightroom Classic as full quality JPEG in sRBG color. In Classic that is with settings "quality 100" and in Lr that is "full size JPEG".
However, the exported JPEG from Lightroom Classic is 13MB of size and the JPEG from Lightroom is 9,6MB of size.
My question: How can this be, where does the significant difference in file size come from?
More importantly: Does the newest Lightroom export JPEGs that are of lower quality versus the Lightroom Classic JPEGs?
I really hope an expert can explain me what is going on, otherwise I'm a bit hesitant on switching over from Classic to cloud-based Lightroom
BTW, I'm running on Lightroom Classic version 8.3 and Lightroom (cloud) version 2.3
I was trying to upload some pictures for my client to google docs so they could access them, but they were badly compressed, and I had to use my laptop. Please make it so I can use my IPad for everything.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 end up with files from 1mb to 30 mb. It seems like a lottery. Never know what I'm gonna get.
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.
