In Lr 3.6 there still exists the problem in the Print module whereby the programme will only output at 72ppi resolution despite setting it to any other output resolution.

Hi Barry, thanks for the report.

It should be outputting at your chosen resolution, but it's not tagging it correctly.

It only affects the Mac version, as far as I know, and hopefully should be fixed in a future release.

I am using the Windows version and output is incorrect. I am continuing to use version 3.4.1 as this version outputs correctly.

Ah, thanks Barry. The bug report is currently marked as Mac only, so I'll try to reproduce and update that.

I too have the problem in Windows, with version 4.3. It affects my printing workflow.

This problem does not exist for me in Lr 4.3. I have just output a file from the print module prepared for the lab I use with the lab's Fuji profile and output at 402 ppi.
When displayed in Br or opened in Ps all the parameters are correct.

Hi
Thanks for your input.
I have the problem with QuadToneRIP for Windows. It is a RIP specialized for B&W printing.
If I produce a JPEG by exporting from LightRoom, QuadToneRIP interprets the picture dimensions correctly.
However, if I produce the JPEG with the print module, than QuadToneRIP does not interpret the dimensions correcly.
PhotoShop and Bridge indeed see the correct dimensions from both JPEG files.
