"As an extension to this question: If I export an image from lightroom (let's say it's not been cropped so it's 2848x2488) but instead of exporting it as 300 ppi I choose, say, 240 ppi, will it automatically make the image bigger? If…"

Low Quality For Printing - What Am I Doing Wrong?

I recently decided to learn a bit more about preparing my images for printing because I was worried (and rightly so) about my lack of knowledge when it comes to resolutions, file sizes and types, etc.  I always shoot in RAW and when I'm finished editing my photos (I only use Lightroom 5 right now) and I'm ready to export, I set it to 300 dpi.I was going to take advantage of the large print sale at Nations Photo Lab and I chose four images to print as 16x20s.  When I was reviewing them in my…See More

QUICK! Editing a friend's senior photos!

Hey all! I've been taking portraits of friends and family for a couple of years and I offered to take photos of my sister's boyfriend as his informal senior portraits.  I'm happy with the SOOC shots, but I'm struggling to edit them.  I'm using LR5 alone, shooting in RAW.  I've attached the screenshot of Lightroom's before and after view of the current edit for the first pose I'm working on.  I feel like I like the edit better than the original for sure, but I can't pinpoint what it is that…See More
