Lightroom: LR 4.1 RC2: Export email function exports the same photo

Hi all,

just tried the export to email function. The two selected photos are displayed fine in the compose email window, - but LR just sends the first photo twice, the second one is not sent. :-)

I cross-checked this in the SENT folder of the sending email account.

I am using the 64 bit version of LR and just installed my computer from scratch. There is no email program installed yet, LR uses its LR built-in email function.

Regards,
Helge

Further testing reveals that sending four photos sends 4 copies of first photo and 1 copy of last three. Note that this behavior is different from that reported by Helge in that all images are sent, but with multiple copies of first image. An additional detail not noted earlier is that the multiple images are all sent full sized but the latter ones are sent as icons which can be viewed or downloaded in the normal fashion of gmail attachments.

So what does it mean that the original posting is now flagged with a "Solved" banner? The problem is certainly NOT solved, as John Spacey has confirmed.

Well, it has been solved after RC2 was released. The fix will be in the final 4.1.

Lightroom - LR4.1 - RC2 - Email export jpg sizing bug
*******************************************************************

HI peeps

It appears the 'resize to fit' width and height parameters are swapped when exporting to email.

I just mailed a friend a jpg with 'resize to fit' 1600wx1100h. The picture was sent as 1100x781

I mailed it to myself to chec k and indeed it was 1100x781

I did a regular export of the same pic with same 'resize to fit' = 1600wx1100h and the resultant export was correctly 1549wx1100h

I can only assume the developer has inadvertently swapped the width and height parameters on theemail export routine

Not sure why this was merged. It's a different issue. Can you please repost it as a new problem?

And I cannot reproduce it. What was your setting: "dimension" or "width&height"? Image portrait or landscape?
