LrC and Exporting not added to folders

When I use LrC and export a processed RAW photo to JPG is a sub-folder of the RAW folder (the method I use) the JPG is not added to the database.  The onlt way to get to see them/know they are there is to run a 'sync' to have the database updated.

Is there not a way to export and have the exported file included automatically?  Is there a setting I have missed?  Or is there a better workflow than what I am doing currently: Process a RAW => Export to JPG in a sub folder.

If you check "Add to this catalog" under Export location at the top of the Export dialog, the jpgs will be added to the catalog.

Refer to above advice - that was my problem 🙂

Not seeing these export versions within the Catalog, is already IMO that "better workflow"! 

 

Exports are associated with some external usage purpose (which dictates their particular export settings).

 

Outside of the Catalog is thus where their point and usefulness lies - for as long as that purpose remains.

Agreed. I only keep originals in my catalog, having exported files in Lightroom will cause clutter and confusion.

I never edit exported files, (if they need to be edited, I edit the original and re-export) and if I need to look at them, I use ACDSee.

As you're hinting at, exported files have a limited life span. Once they have served their purpose, I usually delete them. If needed, it's easy to export again later.

And exported files should be tailored to their purpose. Rather than resizing and re-saving a full resolution jpg to use at 1200 pixels on a website, it's much better to make a new export at the correct size, and sharpened for that purpose.

 

It seems that some people routinely export every image as a full resolution jpg. In my opinion, there is no need to waste time and disk space on this. I prefer to export only when I need to use an image for a particular purpose.
