I'll be away for most of Thursday (Aussie time) (approx Wednesday evening USA time). So sorry about the short notice.  I'll catch up on all posts when I get back.  Damien.

Hey guys... I am exporting images from light room at 300 ppi and 100% quality and the file sizes are still only between 3 and 4 MB... The photographer I edit for says the files should be 8-9 MB... I am clueless as to what I am doing in the export process to cause the files to be "half" the size they should be to give to her brides....  

Would love help... I looked around the site and didn't find anything... 

 

Thanks bunches!

Hi Guys!  Sorry, I had my 10 year Anniversary and went MIA....  Unfortunately, I deleted said photographers images off my computer already... but I know the pixels were over 3000x2400 or something like that...

That's a problem.  That's REALLY small.  What camera do you have?

The hell they were.  That's no web-ready size I've ever seen. Something is badly wrong here.

No, this is CATASTROPHICALLY bad.  3000 is NOT Facebook size.

The maximum Facebook size is 2048.

This is the action to use.  Delete the dangerous Tole one immediately.

Have we meandered from the original topic?  When you first posted this question, you weren't talking about web images, were you?

So, the height is 2048... the width is 3132... this is for a horizontal image and 2048 with a width of 1387 for a vertical... Is that still bad?

Regardless of orientation, if you know what I mean. 2048 high for portrait images, or 2048 wide for landscape images.
