Exporting and sending full-resolution photos

Video: Exporting and sending full-resolution photos

After having emailed the client low-resolution JPEGs and also posting an online web gallery, the client has made a decision. They want high-resolution TIFF files. Let's take a look at how we can send high-resolution TIFF files and how we can do that effectively, starting off here in Lightroom. What we first need to do is to select the photographs. We know the pictures that they selected so we can go ahead and choose one and then hold down Command or Ctrl and then select the others. In this case it is these three photographs. The next step is to navigate to export. You can do that by clicking your Export button here.

Exporting and sending full-resolution photos

After having emailed the client low-resolution JPEGs and also posting an online web gallery, the client has made a decision. They want high-resolution TIFF files. Let's take a look at how we can send high-resolution TIFF files and how we can do that effectively, starting off here in Lightroom. What we first need to do is to select the photographs. We know the pictures that they selected so we can go ahead and choose one and then hold down Command or Ctrl and then select the others. In this case it is these three photographs. The next step is to navigate to export. You can do that by clicking your Export button here.

This will open up the export dialog. Here we're going to export these files to our hard drive, in this case save them to the desktop, and I will put them in a subfolder. I'll call the subfolder actor. Next, file naming. If we desire to change that we can change that there. There aren't any video files here, so this is irrelevant. We also have file settings. In this case, we'll choose our image format of TIFF, color space, crank that up. Pro photo RGB. They want the res 16 bit--best color space possible. We're going to give it to them.

Again, you want to know what your client wants and then dial in these settings appropriately. Next up is image sizing. There is no image sizing needed here, so we will leave this one blank. Output sharpening, well, what we'll do for output sharpening is we'll sharpen for the final output in this case, perhaps, a matte paper and use a standard amount. Or if we just are not certain--if we think it is going to be glossy we may desire to choose a low amount so that these images aren't over sharpened before giving them high-resolution files, and if we know that the client takes those files and then repurposes them or resizes them and has a good team to do that, well, then we may turn this option off altogether.

Again, here it's really important to know your client needs. We have the ability to add some metadata. What you could do with the metadata is add your copyright information here. We'll go ahead and add copyright and contact info. Next, scrolling down. No need to have a watermark. And then Post-Processing, after this is done we'll just have this do nothing. All right. Well, now that we have dialed in these settings, click Export. This will then export these photographs, and it will take them and convert them to this high-resolution TIFF file format.

Next thing that I need to do is to exit or hide Lightroom. Here, I'll go ahead and do that by pressing Command+H. Now on my desktop I can see that I have this actor folder. This is the folder which has all of these images which we can see here. The next step is going to be to compress this folder. To do that on Mac or Windows, we can right-click or Ctrl-click and then choose Compress. This will allow you or give you the ability to create a zip file. Here we can see this zip file right next door to the folder.

Well, this is the file that we want to send, because by sending this together all zipped up, it will be one group. Therefore, when the user or the client downloads the image, they will only have to download it once rather than making a download for each image. The next that is going to be to open up our browser, there are different solutions for sending high-resolution files. One of the most popular is youSENDit. You can sign up for a free trial in order to test this out. But basically, what this allows you to do is to send an email to your client to select that file-- the actor zip file--and then deliver these files digitally.

Therefore, there is no need to burn these files to a disk and then to mail your client that disc. And this whole process will make your workflow seem and be more professional by delivering these files digitally.
