  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Exporting Pictures- Web & Print

I am having horrible experience at posting pictures to FaceBook as well as printing pictures where the quality looks presentable. I have tried a lot of different settings and cannot seem to find one that does not make the picture look distorted. The last one I tried was: JPEG, Quality at 89, sRGB color space, Limit File Size box unchecked, Resize to Fit box is checked, Long Edge, Don't enlarge box is checked, 960 pixels, Resolution 75 ppi, and sharpen for screen-amount high. I though this would fix it, but it still makes people's faced look a little distorted, and they are wedding pictures, so I really need help on this and the settings for printing pictures--not sure on the size of the pictures because I let my clients choose the size. Please someone help me with any suggestions. I am new to lightroom. Photoshop was giving me the same problem and that is why I got lightroom, now it seems that it is not resolved. Thanks for you patience with me and for helping me. Brittany :)

Hi Brittany, welcome to the forum!

How are you uploading to Facebook, too? When you're uploading directly into an album, there's a high quality checkbox at the bottom which probably makes a difference.
