In this video tutorial (Exporting Images in Lightroom 5), you’ll master the Export options in Lightroom to quickly automate the creation of multiple files for a variety of different output scenarios.
I really like your educational material and enjoy attending your sessions at conferences when you speak. I have a lightroom 5 question for you. Is there a way to export one image(DNG) from lightroom and have lightroom create both high res JPG and low res JPG of this image in one operation. I typically name the file and would like the same name on the file with HR on the high res version and LR on the low res version. I can’t seem to figure out how to get lightroom to do this short of doing the export twice. Perhaps this is something for a future version.
Short answer is no. But I would set up two presets, one for the high res and one for the low res. You can then select the first preset (I would do this using the context sensitive menu where it’s easy to select export presets) and get the first set of images exporting and then choose the second. Note you can start multiple batches of files conversions at one time in LR – you don’t have to wait until one is finished to start the second.
