Export bug in LR Classic 7.2?
« on: February 14, 2018, 03:11:02 PM »

I just installed the latest version on my MacBook Pro. When preparing to burn a disc for a client, I export jpeg files at quality 100 and "Resize to fit" unchecked, which has always produced full-sized jpeg files. Using those settings with this version, the resulting file sizes are approx. the equivalent of quality 85 and resize 3500 X 3500 ppi, the file size I normally use when uploading to my website. When I set quality at 100 and resize to 10,000 X 10,000 I get what seem to be full-size jpeg files. Is this a deliberate change?

I never check "Don't Enlarge."

Any ideas?

Hard to give an answer because of a lot of misunderstanding in your post.

An Export with "Resize to fit" unchecked would produce images with PIXEL dimensions that are the same as the out-of-camera image OR the Cropped pixel dimensions.  (eg. my Nikon file originals are 6016x4016 pixels. Exported without Resize they are still 6016x4016. )

What do you mean by- "the equivalent of quality 85 and resize 3500 X 3500 ppi"
How do you calculate "equivalent quality"?   (The Export 'Quality' setting in Lightroom determines the JPG Compression factor)
"3500x3500" is a Square photo. Have you cropped the photo in Lightroom Development?
"ppi" is meaningless for a Digital image in the computer. The only meaningful data is PIXEL dimensions (for both Original AND Exported files.)

"resize to 10,000 X 10,000"  Bloody hell that's a BIG file!!!  100,000,000 Pixels ! And again it is meaningless.

I think we need more information from you to understand your problems, thanks.

And now I re-read your post and think that 10,000 X 10,000 -you are referring to INCHES- correct or not?
