Lightroom 5.3 doesn't resize on export unless I put it as resize to specified long edge.
setting it to MP, short edge etc does not work and defaults to full size.. any ideas? or is it a bug?

There is a known bug where if Don't Enlarge is enabled, then things are exported as full-sized under certain conditions.

So try unchecking Don't Enlarge and see if it works any better.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
LR 5.3 Image Size Bugs When Exporting (Don't Enlarge, Pixel Dimension).


In Lightroom 5.3, when I check the "Don't Enlarge" radio box in the Image Sizing area, it cancels out any/all sizing parameters, and exports all images at their original/cropped size. If I uncheck this, images are exported at the desired pixel dimension (Long Edge selected), but then some images are enlarged. Please repair.

Can't export files with specified long-edge dimension. Lightroom 5.3 makes up it's own random sizes. This is killing my workflow. Please fix!!!!

Thanks, Andrew. I also read that sharpening adjustments are not applied to JPG exports in 5.4, which is an even worse bug. Has this been your experience?

Dale, I personally have not experienced any issues with sharpening on export. However, this was supposed to be fixed too, per the release notes (item 11):

Bugs Corrected in Lightroom 5.4

When switching to the Book module with images selected, a ‘Gathering Photos’ message would appear and stay persistent.
On Mac Lightroom activity, such as an export, did not prevent the computer from sleeping.
In the Develop Module, the ‘Settings > Crop as Shot’ menu item did not properly reset orientation.
In the Develop Module and when applying Grain, occasionally vertical artifacts would appear along the bottom edge of a photo.
In the Develop Module, there is a slight delay before the Histogram is available for adjustments.
Lens profile corrections for the iPhone 5 would not be selected when using the ‘Auto’ Lens profile correction feature in the Develop module.
In the Develop Module, Scrubby Adjustments on Adjustment Brush Pins did not work as expected.
Syncing of spot removals was not consistent from image to image.
Exporting a scaled image to PSD would sometimes cause the watermark to be displayed incorrectly.
When Don’t Enlarge is on in Export, image was not resized, even when making image smaller.
Sharpening/Noise Reduction were applied inconsistently depending on crop and export image size.
Luminance of exported file differed noticeably after crop.
When adding keywords on Import, Import begins at once when keywords entered with ‘enter’ key
In the Import dialogue, Loupe view occasionally did not work.
When using the “Edit in Photoshop” feature in Lightroom, the Smart Object filter mask was sometimes not previewed correctly within Lightroom.
When creating a new Collection inside of a Collection set, the default option for Location was the parent of the selected collection set and not the selected collection set.
Upload via publish does not prevent computer from sleeping, and upload fails if computer sleeps.
When playing a slideshow comprising TIF or JPEG images, occasionally the slideshow would appear pixelated.
The color profile of a photo was incorrect when playing slideshow in full screen mode.
When using a video export preset, develop settings were not applied to all images.
Smart preview indicator under Develop histogram displayed the wrong number when multiple photos were selected.
