The size of an image can vary depending on where it is being shown. How do you best size an image so that you can share it on social media websites like Instagram, or make sure that it is properly sized for video? In this video, Richard Harrington walks you through cropping an image to a specific size in Adobe Lightroom.
- Unlike most tools, when cropping,…Lightroom doesn't actually crop to a specific size.…Rather, just to ratio.…The size, the relative size of the print…or the digital file that you create for the web,…is generated upon export.…Let me show you.…I'll select our next image here in the series.…And, this particular case I've already applied a crop.…Let's take a look at what we have.…I see that we've done an initial crop,…and it's matched the original ratio of the photo.…
But, I want to be a little more specific.…I'll go for 5 x 7, and you see it cuts in just a little bit.…And, I'll press return.…Now, if I want to generate a true 5 x 7,…that's part of the export command.…I'll choose File > Export.…And it brings up the export dialogue.…From the popup list, choose your hard drive,…unless you'd like to directly attach to an email,…or burn to a CD, or use another plugin.…But I'll go right to the hard drive here.…
I'll choose to go to a specific folder,…let me click 'Choose,'…and on my desktop,…I'm going to make a new folder called 'Output.'…
