Hi all,I would like to export my raw files in such a way that the file sizes would not be incredible large and at the same they would allow print sizes up to half A4 page. What should be resolution and dpi for such kind of export?I would like to thank you in advance for your replyRegardsAlex

I would set the long edge to 1200 and the quality to 80%. See what size the file is and decide if it's ok. There should be no problem in printing that on A5. If the file is too big, try reducing one or the other of long edge and quality till you find the right compromise for you.
