p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Lightroom/PS Print Sizes, Screen Viewing, Downsampling etc


I am an amateur who occasionally posts digital media for computer viewing and once in a blue moon sells a print here and there.

I have always exported to JPEG in Lightroom with no re-sizing other than just 77% on the quality slider to get slightly smaller files with no noticeable difference in quality. I have canvasses that I have printed which were exported at 60%, which I used to always blindly use.

My question is, when I export, should I be exporting for screen viewing at a particular size say 24" screen resolution and hope that this looks "okay" on smaller and larger screens and is acceptable for the occasional photo print on matte paper or should I be exporting two copies of each, one for computer screens and one for print media? Would that be overkill?

I am almost embarrassed how little I have paid attention to this over the years, with most of my photographs out there just being standard export at 60% quality, which I think was the default Lightroom setting.

I guess no advice. I will consult Google and do my best to make a sound decision on the process.

Leaning toward just exporting for digital viewing

In the Export module LR lets you select sharpening for screen or print.

You don't output for screen size in inches; you output pixel dimensions. Its the same number of pixels regardless of screen size.
