can be chosen for that crop, I wish to have the original photo not destroyed so a 'save as' option please, or where is the best place to find these answers please
Edit: Sorry my answer below is for Lr-Classic!
In Lightroom: Export the photo, and set the Custom Long edge dimension! (simple as that!)
The crop tool in Lightroom-Classic does not work in the way that Photoshop or many other photo editors work.
1. Your original image files are not/never touched or changed by any edits you do in LrC.
2. The Crop Tool uses 'Ratios'. eg. 4x3 8x10, 1x1, etc. You can do a 'Custom Crop' but it will still be a 'Ratio'.
3. To create a file of specific 'Pixel' dimensions you must Export a derivative copy from LrC, with dimensions set in the 'Resize' panel.
4. The use of Virtual Copies is helpful to see variations of different crops.
TYVM for your help that IS a relief!!...I worry about original photos!!!!
