Hi there, I only work with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and I love it. Unfortunately, a client needs a 300 dpi-resolution image and I can't export it. I already edited all the images on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (Cloud version). What can I do? Should I transfer all the images to the Lightroom Desktop version - but how without losing the editing? Thanks for your help.

It's sad that so many clients don't have a clue about these things, but that's another matter. I cannot check it right now because I type this on my iPad, but I believe you can specify the resolution in PPI of an exported image if you specify the size in inches rather than pixels.

Johan is right, there is an option: Mark the photos and go to the File > Export menu. On the right edge of the screen, choose JPEG or TIFF for the file type. For "dimensions", select "Custom". For" long side", select the unit "inches". Enter "300" into the field at "resolution". I have translated the terms from the German version, I hope it is understandable.

You are both brilliant, thanks for helping me so quickly! So I only have to recalculate the PIXEL into INCHES and I can export it. Fantastic!
