    Can't export cropped PNG screenshot images

    I've imported some screenshots from an iPad which are all PNG files. I've then made virtual copies of them which have further been cropped, and now I want to export those cropped screenshots (for uploading to online forums), and where the trouble starts.... First I see no PNG option, and since...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    .... or better yet: just press (on a Mac) CMD-P three times after each other (something I accidently discovered) once you've selected the photos! The complete procedure being as follows: 1) go to the Library module and select the photos you want to include in the PDF file 2) press CMD-P (go to...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    No, as far as I can see it only saves the print setup, not the actual print procedure. But I believe I've found a solution! Actually I should have thought of this before as I use it all the time for making PDFs of web pages, forum discussions, email etc. which I want to keep for later... In...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    Very nice! But I still have to press the "Printer" button (not "Print") and go through the rest of the procedure I listed, finally by pressing "Save PDF", right? Is there a way I could just select the images in question then press just a single button, a single menu item or similar?

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    Excellent explanation! I'll be sure to always have the PPI value setting turned off when printing PDF files from LR. Prior to reading your reply I tried out different paper sizes (in the MacOS print dialog). While viewing the different results I believe I came to the same conclusion as yours...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    It works the same way here (relying on a "PDF printing" feature within the operating system (or some OS-add on) PDF feature). I just tried it but the end result was terrible (degraded image resolution). Then I did another test, this time by disabling the "Print resolution" where I previously...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    Luckily Preview can handle PNG files without first converting. I've been using Preview for this sort of thing before, but it's a multi-step thing and a bit cumbersome, first adding all the images to the sidebar (ensuring they're in the correct order), then "Printing" to PDF. Preview's...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    I'd like to "print" multiple images to a PDF file with the same quality and dimensions they're at originally. They're all the same resolution and dimensions (1024x768, 72 DPI) and PNG files so I'd like to keep that for the final PDF as well, but as far as I can see there are only a few standard...

    Copy Mac Finder paths to keyword hierarchy?

    I don't know if anyone's still reading and I'm certainly not very much into this stuff, but.... I made a couple of changes and it seems to work (copying only the folder's name to use as keywords -not the entire path as well). I made two changes: 1) found at the beginning of the script, first...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Absolutely! I do appreciate John's efforts, but as I only need that single feature of the plugin the other script might do (although with a modification). I just wanted to ensure the author was OK with online discussions on modifying it (or if he'd rather not).

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    By the way, do you mind if I discuss modifying the "File path to keywords" script mentioned here and which you posted earlier here? Although I'm not into programming I can understand some of the basics, but see that it's not obvious from the code what to do with "path" (so as to eliminate the...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    OK, I've tried it out with "Folder" instead, but there's still a dialog box popping up, although a different one. After trying various combinations, these are the settings that worked for me: and for the dialog popup which follow after pressing "Process 2 photos": I noticed that if you click...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Thanks. I'll look into the script and see although I'm no programmer... I successfully installed the trial version of your "Search and replace" plugin and got to try it out! Being a while since I've used LR plugins I found that you had to select the photos to affect, then go to File - Plugin...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Ah, I see. So I can use it instead of the "File path to keywords" script and it has options for allowing me to do exactly what I'm asking (use only the folder name as keywords for the photos within it)? The difference being that the "File path to keywords" script is free (but non-configurable...
