  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

PS not showing correct image size

I've never seen this before. I must have inadvertently changed something. I exported at 1024 on the long side and opened in PS. The image looks too small and it is at 100%. As you can see when I open it in Preview (left file) it looks correct. This on my iMac. Same OS and Adobe versions on my laptop and it looks normal.

If I increase the size in PS to 200% it looks correct

You probably use a high resolution screen, like a 4K screen or a Retina MacBook screen. Preview compensates for that, Photoshop does not and shows you a real 1:1 (one screen pixel = one image pixel) view.

Yes I just finished getting some info in that this morning. I often open an exported and downsized file in PS to see what the final results for web viewing will look like. I could use Preview but old habits.

Couple of things I found. You can manually zoom it to 200%. You can select 'get info" on the app itself and select "open in Low Resolution" so it does this all of the time. I think my favourite will be exporting twice the size I need, opening in PS, checking it out and either exporting half the size or just exporting the correct size from LR. I looks best at twice the size for detail. I know it will look different on other screens so I'm still experimenting.

Thanks for replying.
