I would like to export jpg in 300 dpi and it's impossible (only 240 when the original image was in 300 dpi)... i don't understand why it is not possible with Lightroom ! 
I paid to use it, it should be normal to have this basic option.

The option to define the resolution in ppi is already available. You have to change the size to inches to activate it.

Changing the DPI (or really PPI, pixels per inch) literally has no impact on the quality of the image. Regardless of what that setting is, if the image is 6000 x 4000 pixels, it is still 6000 x 4000 pixels. Changing that setting isn't going to change the size of the image. If you want to really know if the image will contain 300 PPI then you need to do some math. For instance, if you want to print and 8 x 10" print and you want to make sure it prints at 300 PPI then you need to ensure that it has sufficient pixels:

8 inches X 300 PPI = 2400 pixels
10 inches X 300 PPI = 3000 pixels

Consequently, you need an image that is 2400 x 3000 pixels. Then it doesn't matter whether the PPI setting is 72 or 300 or what ever. You will have the right number of pixels for what you need. Changing the PPI setting isn't going to affect the quality of the print in any way.

 

If you have difficulty believing this then take this challenge. If you have a way to save images at different PPI settings then save one at 72 PPI and one at 300 PPI and have them printed at the same size as an experiment and compare them. You will find as I have because I have done the experiment, that there is literally no difference in print quality. And, you will discover that there is no difference in file size of the two images.

Maybe but when client ask for 300 dpi, i have to give an image 300 dpi and it will be 200% more easy if i could be do that directly on Lightroom.

Thank you anyway for your answer.

Too bad that the client doesn't really understand. You probably don't believe what I explained, but it is a fact. I've tried it myself. The PPI setting literally has no impact.

Just a thought. Does your plan to include Photoshop? You could always open the image in Photoshop and save it from there and specify the PPI setting that you need. An extra step, yes. But the client would be happy.

Yes ! I do that but when i have a short deadline, it's a step that i should avoid.

This little option on Lightroom would be very appreciable, really.

I suppose you could consider educating the client. Don't know how much good it would do. But the client is demanding something that is pointless.

 

You should do the comparative print experiment I described and show your client. Maybe that would put an end to his demand.
