Love that LR5 now supports importing PNG images and PNG images with transparency. What LR5 currently lacks is export options for PNG formats (PNG8, PNG24, PNG32), I would love to be able to export images as PNG24 or PNG32 for web.

Workaround: use Lr/Mogrify (or PreviewExporter) for exporting pngs.

Thanks Rob, I'll look into that "workaround". Currently, I just use photoshop for PNG.

The point of this feature request is not to have to use a workaround. With PNG being a major web format for images which include transparency, I feel LR should natively support PNG as an export option.

I realize, when people make feature requests, they are interested in native functionality. People sometimes offer work-arounds in case they help get by in the mean time. Hopefully it's understood that the intent is not to take anything away from the original feature request.

With that in mind, Exportant also has an option for PNG export which may be relatively convenient.

I've been wanting this feature for quite some time.

Not sure why it hasn't been implemented yet, as it would be very simple to do.

If we're able to use so many powerful features within Lightroom (like clone/heal, etc.) without needing to export to Photoshop; why not enable a simple PNG export option?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why doesn't Lightroom export PNG files?.

It would be nice if Lightroom could add PNG as an export option.
