  • Lightroom Classic 7.5 and Lightroom CC 1.5 have just gone live, and there's some exciting mobile updates to follow. And the big news... my Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro book has just been released too!
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

How do I resize photos in LR6 to be x#pixels by y#pixels? This is now a requirement for viewing projected photos on our society's newly purchased projector.

Assuming that the original image is the same ratio as the pixel size that you desire, you can tell LR the dimensions that you desire the image to be in the Export command. If not, first crop the image to the same ratio in the Develop module.

If you want to do it before export go to View - Loupe Info. You can set it up using View Options. You can contain the aspect ratio or unlock it in the crop tool. If I want to get the same crop size using PS and LR I crop in PS first, write down the dimensions and use the method I described in LR.

In PS you enter the dimensions. In LR you keep cropping until you get the dimensions you want. Not an easy way to do it but I don't think there is another way.
