Lightroom Downloading images

Community Beginner ,

I use Lightroom Classic for editing and I wanted to share photos with a client so they can download them. Photos are 96 dpi rather than 300dpi when downloaded. I tried this by syncing the two and also by uploading 300 dpi directly to Lightroom. And in both scenarios, the downloaded images is 96dpi. How can they be 300dpi when downloaded?

I'll help you figure this out. Shared albums for Lightroom & Lightroom Classic only allow JPEG downloads, which are limited in quality and optimized for viewing & sharing at 2048 px.

 

As a workaround, you can try & use Export images in the desired format & DPI from Lightroom Classic & sync using the Creative Cloud files folder & then share links to specific folders with your client(s). Check this to get started with sharing  public links from Creative Cloud: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/share.html

 

Let me know if it helps,

Thanks!

Digital images have no inherant PPI or DPI value, those terms are meaningless in the context of sharing, viewing and downloading, and they have no effect on the quality of the image. The only things that matter are the pixel dimensions of the exported file (an export is what a user download effectively is) and the amount of jpeg compression used during the download. If the intention of the end user is to print some of the downloaded files, you ideally want the full resolution file available in the cloud, which means uploading directly to Lightroom first (as syncing from LrClassic only uploads a smart preview, which is always 2560 pixels on the long edge, and only downloads at 2048px, so not ideal for subsequent printing). The full-resolution file, however, will download the full pixel resolution, although it's not at the 100% quality level that would be ideal for printing, but is more than adequate for most other uses.
