Exported file dimensions too small

I can not figure out what is happening at export to give me such small files. I have searched and searched online and read all I can but I am still without answers. Any help you may be able to provide me with I will be so appreciative for.
This is my work scenario. I shoot on Cannon 50D in raw (15 mp). Upload the images to computer and import to Lightroom. I make my adjustmenst in Lightroom and many images I pull from Lightroom into Photoshop CS5 and do additional artistic touches there. I save from Photoshop so that it re-opens it back in Lightroom with my Photoshop adjustments. After I have done this with all of my images I then export the images my clients select for their purchased disc. This where I am concerned...
What I know had once started out as large raw files are quite small by the dimension size, average approximate dimensions are 4750x3170. File settings are set to quality 100 and under Image Sizing I do not have 'resize to fit' checked. On occasion I have used the crop feature in Lightroom but not on many images and all of my images are small not just certain ones.
I am fairly new to Lightroom but nervous about using it right now. I am actually postponing editing a new session until I can get some clear answers or I may just have to tackle the whole session in Photoshop like I used to because I will at least know that file sizes will not decrease in size.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

When I do re-open the file that has been edited and exported in Photoshop I show a Document size of 9.083x13.627 with res at 300. My pixel dimension is 31.9M.
How can I print a 16x24 or 24x36 etc with a file sized like this?
The required resolution for a specific print size depends primarily on the "viewing distance." See this article by Jeff Schewe:
http://www.digitalphotopro.com/technique/workflow/the-right-resolution.html
If your client is doing a large poster that will be viewed from two feet or more then 140 dpi should be fine. The 50D's 4752 x 3168 "uncropped" resolution equates to 34" x 22.6" at 140 dpi, so the maximum standard print size is 30" x 20." That said I've made some great looking 24" x 16" enlargements with a Canon 300D (3,027 x 2,048), which are only 126 dpi. It really depends on the detail in the picture and the target paper type. Prints on canvas material can only resolve about 150 dpi maximum and there is little benefit using higher resolution. Glossy paper provides the highest image resolution capability (300 dpi+), but will only look sharper when viewed at shorter distances (i.e. less than two feet). For smaller handheld prints (i.e. 4" x 6", 5" x 7") 300 dpi or higher will give you the best results.

Why are my files now showing 9x13 for the size?
In PS go to the toolbar Image> Image Size. PS calculates the image dimensions based on the 'Resolution' box setting (i.e. 300 dpi). If you want to see the picture dimensions at a different resolution enter that number (i.e. 140 dpi) in the 'Resolution box.

  • Format Error : mkfs.ocfs2 1.2.7 file system too small for a journal

    Hi All,

    Please anybody can help me to resolve this problem.
    Thanks in Advance.

    How large is the device that you are formatting?
    The default journal size depends on the type specified. If none specified,
    then it assumes "mail" which sets the default journal per slot to 256M.
    If database type, default is 64M.
    Use "-T database" to specify database type, etc.
    BTW, one can always override the defaults. Say "-J size=16M" to make
    a smaller journal.
    man mkfs.ocfs2 and the user's guide has more.

  • How can I perform the conversion of pdf files in Cyrillic script to Word files in Cyrillic script. The pdf file is too small for me to read right now. Julyan Watts

    How can I perform the conversion of .pdf files in Cyrillic script to Word files in Cyrillic script. The .pdf file is too small for me to read without a magnifying glass, and the document is more than one thousand pages.

    This answer was not helpful. First of all, I could not find "tech specs"
    anywhere on the Acrobat 11 homepage. And secondly I purchased this software
    for the specific purpose of converting .pdf files to Word. It was only
    after I had completed the purchase that I learnt that Acrobat does not
    permit the conversion of .pdf files in Cyrillic to Word files  in Cyrillic.
    I feel that Acrobat should have provided this crucial information before I
    allowed my credit card to be debited. That is why I  am now asking for my
    money back. But thanks for your attempt to solve my problem, even if it was
    not successful.

  • Host Agent Service critical - Paging file is too small for this operation to complete

    Hi all,
    at the moment I have the problem that some of my hosts get in the errorstate critical in VMM 2012 SP1.
    The error details in VMM are:
    Error (2912)
    An internal error has occurred trying to contact the hostname server: : .
    WinRM: URL: [http://hostname:5985], Verb: [ENUMERATE], Resource: [http://schemas.microsoft.com/wbem/wsman/1/wmi/root/cimv2/Win32_Service], Filter: [select * from Win32_Service where Name="scvmmagent"]
    The paging file is too small for this operation to complete (0x800705AF)
    Recommended Action
    Check that WS-Management service is installed and running on server hostname. For more information use the command "winrm helpmsg hresult". If hostname is a host/library/update server or a PXE server role then ensure that VMM agent is installed
    and running.
    On the host i cannot connect to FailoverCluster or Hyper.V Manager. After a restart of the host the Problem is gone and the System is working without any Problems for some days.
    The paging file is set to 4GB and the OS is Server 2012.
    The hosts have 192GB of RAM.
    The configuration of the pagfile didn't change from Windows 2k8R2 to 2012.
    I didn't find any Errors in the eventlog. Do you have any idea where to check for that?
    Thanks,
    Patrick

    The hotfix didn't solve the Problem for me either. The WMI crash came again after a couple of weeks.
    An additional problem with VDS was detected and the following hotfix was installed:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2884597/en-us
    Also a problem with Clusterservice was found, sadly MS is tagging this handle leak as "won't fix".
    Nevertheless one WMI Instance is still growing...
    We are testing a hotfix that so far looks promising. Its a private hotfix only right now. But the file is listed as KB494704 you may want to ask your support engineer to look into it.

  • Exported images are too small

    I shoot in raw and when I export images to photo labs the size is too small. Instead of mb, the size is reduces to kb.  I have export set for tiff 16 bit.  What am I doing wrong?

    Can't say without more information.
    What command are you using to export?
    What Export Preset are you selecting?
    What are the settings in your selected Export Preset?

  • RAW to JPG file conversions too small?

    Hello,
    I recently upgraded to CS3 from CS so I'm now using Bridge/ACR to convert my RAW files to .JPGs. What is puzzling me is, if I open one or more RAW files in Bridge, make some adjustments (usually WB, exposure, etc.), then use the Save Image option within Bridge to save the image(s) as .JPGs, I am getting very small file sizes (I'm using the Max Quality setting in Bridge, which is 10). For example, a RAW file goes from 6.5MB to 1.2MB. However, if I open the RAW file in Photoshop instead of Bridge/ACR, make adjustments, then save as a maximum quality .jpg, the file goes from 6.5MB to 4.5MB. My concern is that when using the batch/save option within Bridge I'm losing quality somewhere?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    FTP

    Hi Omke,
    Thank you for sharing your workflow--very generous and quite interesting.
    Yesterday, I barged into an Adobe Forums thread similar to mine and I discovered the reason for the file size difference, it's the 10 setting you get when you select Maximum Quality from the Bridge Save Image dialogue box. Bridge, like PS, actually goes to a 12 quality setting, but you have to type in the 12 manually (a curious requirement) rather than selecting the Max Quality option, which always goes to 10. Once I manually typed in 12, my Bridge-converted (RAW to .jpg) files became precisely the same size as when I convert them using PS.
    Here's a link to the thread:

  • Hdv current settings exported file dimension changes to 1920X1080

    Hello,
    I'm working with HDV-sourced footage (MPEG-2 at 1440X1080). I have a bunch of long clips I simply want to cut into smaller pieces for now. So, I've dragged the HDV footage into a sequence with HDV settings (ie. 1440X1080). I export with "Current Settings" as I want to maintain HDV file sizes and stay in the same codec as the camera and what the files were originally imported as. Then, when I check the codec in Finder, it says the files are MPEG-2 at 1920X1080. So, if the dimensions have changed, have I somehow changed the codec?

    It never displayed as 1440, or at least it shouldn't have. If it did, everyone and everything would've looked squished and skinny. Your export, if it was anything other than HDV, would be 1920. Did you export ProRes, H.264, or something else? And if you exported HDV, open the clip in QT, and click on Window/Show Movie INspector. The inspector window will show you the actual encoded pixels, and the display pixels. The former should be 1440, and the latter should be 1920.

  • Why is the exported file size so small?

    Hello!
    I just spent the last few days watching about three hours of Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 tutorials and almost all five hours of the Adobe Encore CS3 tutorials on Lynda.com with the awesome 30-day trial that I received for purchasing these two programs. I pretty much got to the end of authoring my first DVD with Encore, but the file size is so small that it doesn't even take up the full size of a single-layer DVD and I was expecting to be using double-layer DVDs.
    Here's why I didn't post this in the Encore discussion: My two file sizes are 10GB and 8GB. I have them both as single timelines in Premiere Pro and exported them each to Encore. But why does the file size decrease to just over 1GB for each of the files in the Export to Encore option in Premiere Pro CS3?
    I begin a brand new project in Premiere Pro, import the 10GB .avi, and then do the Export to Encore with "DVD Double Layer", "Author with Menus", "Entire Sequence", "NTSC High Quality" with the quality level switched from 4 to 5, Video Codec = "MainConcept MPEG Video", 720x480, 29.97 drop frame, Lower, Standard 4:3, VBR, 2 Pass, the default bitrate settings of Minimum Bit Rate = 1.5, Target Bit Rate = 4, Maximum Bit Rate = 7, and then whatever GOP Settings are set to M Frames = 3 and N Frames = 15. Without any video editing at all, it estimates the file size at 1.7GB.
    If my goal is to get the file sizes closer to 4GB and 3.5GB, can I fiddle with any of these settings without screwing up the ability for all DVD players to read my disc? I thought it would probably be ideal to have them closer to 7GB and 6GB, and then let Encore downgrade the quality to fit all of the content on the DVD with very little room to spare. But why is there no default to keep the video resolution at the absolute best possible?
    Should I be exporting to a Movie instead of exporting to Encore?
    Thanks!
    Matt

  • Exporting Issues - Video TOO SMALL when exporting

    You can probably tell this, but this is my first time using Premiere after using Final Cut Pro for years.  I have edited a fairly long sequence, but when I went to export, it exports all of the sequence into a small window with lots of black around it.  Also, if I set the sequence window to "fit," it looks like this.  The actual source file from which I pulled all my clips don't have any of these issues.  They fit normally and have no black area around them.  I have messed around with all the settings I can find.  I usually don't resort to posting questions on forums... please help!

    Welcome to the forum.
    As Harm states, this is due to a mis-match between your source footage, and your Project/Sequence Preset.
    What are the full specs. of your source footage? Your Project Preset MUST match that.. If there is not a Preset that does match, you can choose Desktop and then adjust the parameters of it to fit your footage.
    When the above is done, you can Export to all sorts of Frame Sizes, and things will be fine, but you need to match that Project to the footage.
    That will handle it.
    Good luck,
    Hunt

  • Exported JPG Versions too small

    Exported "original size JPGs" from Raw Masters. The file size I was expecting was between 3 and 5 MB but they come out 350kb more or less. If I choose double HD they come out around 1mb...
    Any idea why this is?
    Thanks for any help!

    As you export the version and select the Original size Jpeg, go to the bottom of the list of presents and select edit. Then take a look at the pixel size that is chosen for the original size export. Perhaps that setting has been scaled back to a 800 x 600 or smaller. You can change the pixel size to match your original and go from there.

  • Exporting File Dimensions to File

    Hi,
    I have approximately 65,000 images for which I need to catalogue filenames and pixel dimensions into an Excel spreadsheet. I am using Bridge CS5, and I can see a field containing pixel dimensions, but I can't seem to find a script that will export this field into a file with the associated filenames. There are some useful scripts that will export IPTC and EXIF metadata, but I really just need to compile the filenames and pixel dimensions.
    If you know of any scripts or free software solutions it would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers.

    The Barred Rock script should do that..

  • Exported files are too big

    i and a friend of mine archive files - scans - that are in the size of 200gb and above.
    If we try to export them as version, wie both got an error message.
    does anyone has the same problem with bigger images ?

    I gather you are using Pages 5?
    Just bad conversion.
    Use TextEdit or LibreOffice [free] to resave them and they should shrink down to normal size.
    Why are you using Pages in the first place? There are plenty of alternatives for what you are doing.
    I would check exactly what you have in your document however.
    I did a test export of the Bold Type Letter template [unchanged]:
    .pages = 238 Kb
    .pages (09 export) = 191 Kb
    .pages (09) = 101 Kb
    .pages (09 .doc export) = 24 Kb
    .txt = 2 Kb
    .docx = 10 Kb
    .docx resaved from Word = 21Kb

  • Why is the file size so small?

    Why is a certain file of about 40 MB that I created, possibly with InDesign CS2, reduced to about 6 MB when I open and rename it using "save as" in InDesign CS4? The 40 MB and 6 MB versions both look identical on the screen and when printed. This just recently happened with one particular file, but not with a similar file. They both contain numerous linked Photoshop images.
    I understand that using "save as" deletes possible "undo's" and can reduce the file size. Also, the newer version of InDesign could create a smaller file. But 85% smaller? And why no significant reduction in a similar file.
    I don't imagine you often hear complaints about files being too small, but this really has me confused. Anyone ever heard of a similar problem?

    Many applications do a "fast save". This includes Acrobat and Word for example. The quick save writes new stuff to the end of the file, making the file larger every time even if you delete things. Some apps use "Save as" to go through and do a slower save of only the things still used. I don;t actually know if InDesign works this way but it's quite likely. Fast save also has the advantage that it's much less likely to corrupt the file you are overwriting.
