Do the" OOF" exported versions look that way in a web browser…and only a web browser?
And if you open them in a regular pixel-based image editor like Photoshop, Affinity Photo, etc. do the same exported images look perfectly sharp but only about half as big as they are in a web browser?

Are you using Mac/Apple Mail to send your photos? If, so Mac Mail May also be applying additional compression, thus severely reducing image quality.

Hi..Apologies for delay.

The pohotos are sharp right the way through from Lr Classic to PS and back. The problem only manifested itself after export but the previous advice re increasing Long Edge and reducing Quality if too large have produced good results at 833 Kb and all is sharp. I can read the nameplate . I'll try reducing the Long Edge bit by bit and see what that does.
Thanks.

Hi Jeff. Yes..I only use my Mac Mail..I was unaware that it could add even more compression. Infact, now you mention it when I've sent as friend a full size it's tack sharp every time but at full size an amount of mail compression might not be noticeable.That can be anything from 5MB to 13Mb. There's no problem with full size exporting into my Finder folder either. The problem has definitely been on the Export page of my Lightroom but why now remains a mystery. At the start of this thread I mentioned that this problem didn't exist with Lr4 nor Lr6.14 (Standalone)...it's just appeared with Lr Classic. As mentioned, it seems to have been sorted now.

Thanks.
