Lightroom CC: 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.

What a letdown, we really need a proper export setting like we had in the 'classic' version ...

No kidding.  This is ridiculous - moving to "new" and then take away important features.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled More save export options.

We need more export / save options. And same in iOS version.
Currently only options are small (1048). Size , long edge and full. For jpgs output.
Plus importantly we need control for the compression/ quality and colour space to add Adobe RGB, as the jpgs are always sRGB., with some compression.
So I can give my clients full quality and colour space , in any size.

However , I noticed we can export to open in Photoshop . This opens a 16bit Adobe TGB TIFF in PS.
So there’s must be some decent output functionally and options behind the hood .

I’d be quite happy with a 8bit and 16bit TIFF (adobe RGB) options to save to be addded in to the save menu options.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Can’t export in a different format other than JPEG.

It seems that Lightroom mobile and CC desktop (new) can’t export to anything better than a lossy 8bit jpeg. This seems insane to me, especially for more advanced workflows which involve editing in other applications.

My usecase: initial RAW adjustments in Lr mobile, then continue working in Affinity Photo on an iPad. Currently this transfer to another application is lossy.

But no matter what other third party application I’d choose, or even if I just wanted to simply save an image, something better than JPEG is definitely required in many situations. I cannot understand the reasoning behind this limitation.

Exporting as tiff would be everything I would need as well, but at least with customizable bit depth. 16bit would be nice.

Ok, guys...6 month and no changes to the exporting feature. I cancel my subscription and go to Luminar. Sorry Adobe, but you clearly do not see what a fast upgrade cycle is. The last changes made to Lightroom CC have been marginal and only to do with your auto filters...get the basics right before being fancy.

I can't believe that this FR has only 35 votes. There are so less LRCC users out there? Or are they happy with the limited options here? I do not understand why Adobe did not implement such a basic feature.

Contrary to what Adobe probably assumes, most users don't visit these forums at all. I doubt that the vast majority even cares about expressing their satisfaction or dissatisfaction in a forum like this one at all. They're angry and talk about it with their friends or just switch to a different product.

Getting useful feedback from your users is hard. But Adobe is worse at doing it that many other companies (perhaps intentionally).

If they added a more streamlined way for people to request for features (like an obvious button in the application's UI), the signal would increase dramatically... along with the noise.

Adobe knows only a small number of their users visits the forum, but the percentage of votes compared to other requests still provides useful feedback, rather than focusing on the actual number of votes. In my experience, the percentages are fairly accurate when compared against the feedback I hear from a wide range of sources.

Came here solely with the hope that the export limitations are known and other people care. Of all possible features, the lack of control on export types/quality is the most crippling.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Export TIFF from Lightroom CC.

I find very annoying that I cannot export photos in TIFF format from Lightroom CC after one year or more it has been released, and I am still paying for it. Am I supposed to use JPEG on other editing software that are part of my workflow? Isn't it time to add export settings? It looks like a bad joke to photographers that prioritize uncompressed format.
Thank you

Yup. So much for having LR mobile being a professional tool. :-(

Prioritize this please, exporting TIFF files at some point is an essential part of most people's photography workflow as well as being able to set export parameters like quality, resolution etc. I would kill for Capture One style processing recipes.
