I use Lightroom 3 and i am trying to upload images to a website that requires images of 1300 by 2000 PX..... i have lightroom 3 but when i input this info on the export as 1300 by 2000 pixels the site says the size is incorrect...... i noted that the 2000 apears to be 1950 even though i put in 2000 not great with software so any help would be great.... thanks David

I'm not familiar with Lightroom, but I would suggest that you look for "preserve aspect ratio" and disable it . This should enable you to enter the precise pixel numbers required by the website, though this does slightly alter the shape of the image.

I would advise that you need to crop your image using 1300x2000 as the crop size rather than trying to change its shape.

That's an aspect ratio of 6.5x10, which actually doesn't look bad (I've just tried it) but it's not one that I'm familiar with.

I tried the 6.5x10 but its was not accepted


iPhone & iPod Skins / iPhone Cases / Cards
Please select a maximum quality JPG (RGB) that is exactly 1300px (width) X 2000px (height).

this is the info on the site....... its uploading to create a ipod case image....... in lightroom you can only seem to make one edge a specific size.....

Are you trying to 'Export' at a given size or crop to that size?

Edit: Sorry I've just re-read your original post where you said 'export'.

You need to crop it first to the correct aspect ratio, because as you said the export options only let you select one dimension.

I've just tried it and got the right size by:

1. In crop, enter a custom aspect ration of 10x6.5
2. Crop the image and click close on the crop settings.
3. Export, setting the longest size to 2000.

Is that what you have tried?

I haven't looked at Lightroom yet but if you crop it to that aspect ratio using Photoshop, there's an option to save it as a pre-set.

Actually, you may need to rotate it too so that it is 1300 wide by 2000 tall.

You are able to do that in Lightroom too. Once you enter a custom setting, it gets added to the bottom of the list.

Are you using Windows? If so, right click on the file LR outputs and see what size it is. That might help understand where the problem is.

You needn't even do that, in the Photoshop crop tool simply type in the pixel size you want

In Lightroom:

Then select enter Custom frm the list:
lr2.jpg

and bang the ratio in
lr3.jpg

Use the crop tool to Crop it to the desired shape
Then& export it using these settings:
lr4.jpg

Works for me
