How to Create Export Presets for Web in Lightroom 3

By Pye Jirsa on May 12th 2011

(The Lightroom video tutorial in this post is just under the introductory text below. The working files for this video can be found in any of the articles within the Creating Catalogs and Importing Chapter)

Now that we have gone over setting up a Export Preset for printing, let’s go ahead and do the same thing for web resolution exporting.

It is important to note that whenever you are preparing something for web, email or any other use where you are viewing the images on a screen or TV that you limit the image resolution to 72 pixels per inch. Any larger, and you are simply wasting hard drive space since screen resolution is limited to 72 pixels per inch.

Check out all of the details for preparing images for web/email usage in the video below. Enjoy!
