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.
