  • 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 - 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 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 set resolution at 72 pixels in Lightroom Cloudy, for exporting?

Debra
When you export from Lr (cloudy), there is no resolution. Pixels are dimensionless until transfer to a viewing media. The resolution of screen media is fixed and immutable based upon the pixel dimensions of the monitor. 72ppi is an archaic value going back to day before computers controlled printers and 72 is the default cavalier when no value was supplied in the field in the file header. Almost all print apps ignore this value for determining the size of an image to be printed. Sharing from a mobile device is not really suitable for images unless you have a dedicated printing app to handle the print parameters and can control the output color, dimensions etc.

Thank you. I am sharing photos for screen use. The receiver is requesting 1200 on the long side, which I can set, and then 72 pixels? Weird
1200 pixels is the only thing that matters. That you also need to use 72ppi is a myth.
