Hello!

 

 

 

I would much appreciate advice to all or any individual part of my set of questions:

 

 

 

I intend to bring my in-Lightroom 2.6 developed X1 dngs to a printing lab. How to export them (as jpegs) without unintentionally worsening the best possible printing quality at the stage of saving?

 

I assume that I have to save them as jpegs. (Is this not the best option, or would I benefit from using another format?) X1 provides jpegs as normal, fine and superfine. Why is this no longer a specified option/ relevant division in Lightroom, in where dngs are being exported as jpegs? That is, why cannot I export dngs as superfine jpegs, given that superfine is more detailed than a regular one?

 

I have further trouble understanding what to enter under 'Resize to Fit' (Width & Height). Should the print size determine what values I had best to enter? If print size matters, I aim to take cm 15* 25,5, and 20* 30 prints.

 

It seems to be possible to specify more pixels to an image than what the camera has initially recorded. What is the implication for the printing quality if I tell Lightroom to include more pixels than what the camera's physical limit is. Does Lightroom now invent new pixels in between the original ones, which would presumably make the print quality suffer? Is this possibility to invent new pixels retroactively in Lightroom something that I could use with considerably cropped images, to make them look smooth in prints?

 

Otherwise, is it not best to set no less and no more pixels than what the camera manual informs as the actual number with reference to dng (4288*2862)? If the maximum pixel number ---up to the limit that the camera has originally produced--- is the best option, is it recommended that I export the dngs as jpegs according to the maximum pixel number for JPEG in X1 (4272*2856), or will the jpeg pixels actually reach the number of a dng when burnt not by the camera but by a computer from a dng source information?

 

Third, which resolution value should I enter in order to ensure the best printing quality. I think to know that there is a limit above which an eye cannot discern details, but is there a downside to entering a little greater value than what is needed or possible, rather than entering a bit lesser value that is possible, if the file size is ignored?

 

 

 

Many thanks for any replies in advance!

      Hallo in die Runde,
      mit erschrecken habe ich heute die Bilder einer Winterwanderung ausgewertet. 
      Nicht nur das die Auflösung völlig unzureichend ist ( Aufnahmeauflösung DNG) auch sind chromatische Abweichungen deutlich zu sehen die sich großflächig über Bereiche des Bildes verteilen. Es hatte etwa -3 Grad draußen, der Akku war voll und es gab eine Fehlermeldung auf dem Display die ich nicht weiter beschreiben kann, da ich die Kamera just abschaltete während ich eine Fehlermeldung erkannte... 
      Beispiel füge ich an. 
      Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe schonmal an dieser Stelle!

      What is the benefit to shooting JPEG and RAW?
      I am starting to get overwhelmed by having doubles of all pictures, not to mention the additional space requirement.
       
      Does anyone shoot only JPEG? Why?
      Does anyone shoot only RAW? Why?
      Thanks!

      I just firgure out that my Leica M10, the DNG files opened and exported to JPG by photoshop are always brighter and less contrast than the original JPG generated by M10 body.
      Is there something wrong?
      This is the jpg exported from dng.

      And this is original jpg by body

      Ich habe RAW-Dateien aus der D-Lux 7 mit dem Adobe-DNG-Converter in DNG-Dateien umgewandelt und dann in Lightroom 6 importiert. Dort werden die Dateien ganz kurz in Farbe dargestellt, dann allerdings dauerhaft nur in SW. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die RAW-Dateien in LR6 als Farbbilder zu importieren, ohne auf das aktuelle LR-Abo umsteigen zu müssen?

      Hi I have just came back from a trip where i used my Q2 for the first time massively and when i am importing the color are just 
      becoming totally off. I tried the trial of Lightroom CC Classic and it definitely can show the right color. 
      See below screenshots. There were no adjustment made at all in all case. 
      Anyone having similar color issue with the perpetual version of Lightroom ? 
       
      Many thanks
