Bug report submitted by Rob Cole on behalf of Soulflare007, who was having problems with login/AdobeID...Lightroom 5's export isn't resizing exactly to specified long edge. For example, when I restrict long edge to 1920, the exported files are 1919. Same with 1024, I get 1023px files instead. If I export from Adobe Bridge, then the long edges are calculated correctly. This problem didn't happen with LR4. Files being exported were DNG and TIF.More info here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/54380...

Thanks for linking my thread Brian. The issue also crops up with Image Sizing Dimensions.

There is a similar problem with the Develop module Crop tool:

http://forums.adobe.com/message/5600339#5600339

The problem occurs due to use of precision to three decimal places for the crop ratio, but only to two decimal places when entering new custom ratios. Please see post #23 at the above link for more details.

I got the same issue with exporting images. When I export with long side set at 1000px I get images with 999px at the long side. This happens also with other export sizes.

This problem occurs since LR5. With test versions of previous LR software this bug does not occur!

Got the same problem. I need an exact long size value of 639 pixels and get 638 on export.

Procedure for possible work-around:
1. Save export settings as preset.
2. Open .lrtemplate file (the preset) with text editor.
3. Make the edge size 639.5 instead of 639.
PS - Let us know if that does/doesn't work for you - as you already know if you followed trshaner's recommendation above: it did work for similar problem with crop dimensions.
PPS - Problem still exists in Lr5.2 (final release)?

LR 5.2 fixed the issue. As far as I am concerned.

This issue is not fixed in all cases. Consider Exportant for those cases when still a problem:

Yay, this seems to be finally fixed in the LR5.3 release candidate. Someone was listening, thanks!

Yet there was no mention in the release notes / bugs-fixed section. An oopsidental omission, or is it still not fixed in some cases - hmm...

I can confirm the fix for LR 5.3. The fix has not been mentioned in Adobe's bugfix list though. Anyways I'm happy it's working fine again. Thanks!

I use LR 5.3 and cannot agree that this issue has been solved, at least not in my version. I have used export presets in LR for many versions to date, but never had an issue as now. My jpg export preset requires: Image Sizing - Resize to fit - Long Edge - Don't Enlarge - 35.000 cm - Resolution 200 - pixels per inch and nothing else.

Up till now all images, irrespective of aspect ratio, cropped dimensions or whatever, were correctly cropped to 2756px on the long side, with the short side reduced by the same ratio. Smaller images were left alone.

Currently, uncropped images of 5716 x 3744 are correctly resized. An original cropped to (for instance) 5587 x 2235 px is however not resized at all and is exported in the same batch at 5587 x 2235 px.

Can anyone suggest what I may be doing wrong or should alter in version 5.3?

Thanks.

Hi Martin, I tried to follow your procedure. Resizing was working fine for me. Was the cropping done with LR crop tool on the 5716x3744 image?

Hello Matthias.

Yes, I always crop with the LR crop tool. I have a number of cropping presets (such as 2 : 1 or 2.5 : 1) but also use a free crop when something different is needed.

The file is exported, but not resized, so I can confirm this issue with LR5.3 on my Windows 7 system using Martin's settings.

If 'Don't Enlarge' is unchecked it works, even though the file is clearly NOT being enlarged!

It appears ANY 'Custom' Crop Aspect Ratio with 'Don't Enlarge' checked in the Export Resize panel prevents the image from being resized.

Ah yes, it happens with 'Custom' aspect ratio crops. I can confirm this now.

Thank you Matthias and Todd for investigating this. I have checked your findings and agree with them. It would appear that LR interprets "Don't Enlarge" as "Don't Resize" in some circumstances. I am still trying to see if there are other factors that come into play. By altering the export size from (for instance) 200dpi to 200dpcm, the crop is in fact enlarged to such a degree that the long side of the exported jpg exceeds that of the original raw image, in px. So the instruction "Don't Enlarge" is executed not merely as "leave dimensions untouched, even if longer than the size requested or necessary" but as "Enlarge this image whatever happens, even if told not to do so". To be continued..

Thanks for the info on this, tearing my hair out earlier - unchecked the 'Do Not Enlarge' and it's sorted the problem - not ideal but at least it's working.

So this problem is not fixed. Is it too difficult for Adobe to get this fixed six months after the problem was reported?
