A question that needs vastly more information!

What Lightroom-Classic Version?

Why do you want to "copy the pictures"?

Describe the "Jump Drive".

By "LRC file" are you referring to a Catalog?

 

I assume you might be wanting to EXPORT derivative, edited, versions to a USB stick.

Or do you simply want to make backup copies of your 'original' camera files?

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.3 Photoshop 24.3, ACR 15.3, Lightroom 6.3, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0.3, Windows-11.

I simply want to download a JPEG of a completed picture to a flash drive so that I can take it to a shop and have it printed on metal. My LRC is version 12.3 also.

If the photos are imported into LrC, you would use LrC to export the photos to the Jump drive.

Thanks for the reply howeverwhen I select Export location,  LRC doesn't give me the option to download to a flash drive.  It only gives me the option to download to a "folder".  ???

First use your operating system to create a folder on your flash drive.

You do not have to create a folder on the Thumb Drive.  Select "Specific Folder" in expoft and then just hit the "Choose" button and select the the thumb drive without the "Put in Subfolder" checked.

You don’t even have to go to the menu, you can simply click the Export button in the Library module, shown below as step 1.

 

Although the Lightroom Classic Export dialog box says “folder,” it really means any destination you can normally save to, including a jump drive or empty hard drive. What Bob Somrak showed is very important: In the Export dialog box, click the Export To menu, and choose Specific Folder. Then, when you click the Export button, you will be asked where specifically to save the copies, and that is where you can follow steps 2 and 3 shown below.

 

1. Export is an easy button in the Library panel. Click it to start.

2. After setting Export To to Specific Folder and clicking Export, you see this standard Windows file saving dialog box. To find your jump drive, click This PC.

3. At the This PC level, you will be able to see not only folders, but also a Devices and Drives section. Your jump drive will be listed here. In my example, Devices and Drives lists C and D drives, but on your computer there will be another entry for your jump drive; open that and continue.

(I have not upgraded this to Windows 11 yet, so Windows 10 is shown and might be slightly out of date.)

Yes, of course, @Conrad C, a better answer than the one I gave. I should have thought of that and @Irvin22087806k8gx should have thought of that too.

Thank you so much.  It works perfectly.

I have two more questions!!!?. Will it be downloaded to the flash drive as a JPEG?

AND at what DPI.  (I want it to go at 300 DPI)

Thanks for your help.

You control both of those things in other sections of the Export dialog box, as shown below.

 

To make sure the copy is exported to your flash drive as a JPEG, expand the File Settings section and make sure Image Format is set to JPEG.

 

To make sure the copy is exported at 300 ppi, expand the Image Sizing section, and set Resolution to 300 pixels per inch. You should also make sure the correct Resize to Fit and W/H dimensions are set.

 

It’s a good idea to go through each Export panel and make sure everything is the way you want it. If you do the same export often, you can save settings as an export Preset, which are listed at the top left.

Photos are not "downloaded", they are exported. Export and download have different meanings, and you want to Export here. They will be JPG if you choose JPG in the Export dialog box under Image Format.

 

Lightroom Classic does not allow you to control DPI (dots per inch), it does allow you to control PPI (pixels per inch). DPI and PPI are unrelated and should not be confused with each other. Many people seem to have the misunderstanding that they need 300 PPI (not 300 DPI), when it is not required — in some situations it is required, in most situations its not required. Why do you think you need 300 PPI?
