Exporting photos for social media

One of the biggest questions I see is how to export photos out of Lightroom so that they don't get destroyed when posting to Facebook. Once your photo is edited to it's final draft, hit the export panel, name your file and choose your export destination. 

Here I have named my file untitled and set the destination as desktop.

Then we scroll down to file settings and image sizing. For facebook, 2048 pixels on the long edge and anywhere between 240 and 400 pixels per inch (PPI).

Once these settings are set you can export and upload to facebook without facebook compressing and losing your quality.

Thanks for stopping by.
