The original images in LR Classic have their original dimensions and the sync works successfully, but the dimensions appear squeezed in LR.
I'm looking at the synced images via the LR browser online.
Any suggestions would be great, thank you!
This is normal! Lightroom-Classic will only sync 'up' (from Collections) proxy files called Smart Previews that are 2560pixels on the long dimension.
If you want Full-size images in the 'Cloud' then you would need to 'Add/Import' the full-size files to Lightroom-Desktop v4.1
Thank you for your quick reply! I've been trying to figure this out for about a week. I continue to get that "squeeze" from images taken on a Micro-four thirds camera, GH-5, but not on the full-frame images taken from a Nikon DSLR. Sure appreciate your suggestions and help!
My System: Lr-Classic 10.1, Lightroom 4.1, Mac - macOS Big Sur, v11.1
I would like to know you description of "Squeeze" .
"...full-frame images taken from a Nikon DSLR."
Never- in my experience! Any of my Nikon NEFs synced from a LrC v10.1.1 Collection are the Smart Preview size.
Lightroom-Desktop v4.1, in the Information panel shows the pixels dimensions of the Full-size file (as in LrC),
BUT when you try an export of the image from Lr you will find it is maximum 2560px long edge.
Try and export a Full-Size image and this error results-
When I select a "Small JPG" the export works and I get an image-
WEIRDNESS!!! My attempts to Export a Full-Size file to the desktop have resulted in thumbnail size DNG files!! How stange is that?
I just completed a session with a client, & after sharing the link with their photos they brought up this same distorted look. All of the photos in the link appear squeezed or stretched either in the horizontal of vertical axis. I've called Adobe Support twice, & both times I have them remote access to my computer & they were unable to solve the issue. I hope someone fixes this soon.
It would greatly help if you could show us an example of the problem that you are seeing. I've got plenty of images from an MFT camera in shared albums, and no issue at all in how they are displayed. Is the problem with the previews in the grid, or when displaying invididual images? Maybe create an album with a few test images in them and share the link here? Or take and post some screenshots, though a shared link would perhaps be better.
