  1. Whats a good all around export size for Instagram photos ? Just curious

    1. This is what I found:
      1080px by 1080px (Square)
      1080px by 1350px (Portrait) and.
      1080px by 608px (Landscape).

  2. Out of curiosity how do you organise your “Finals” folder? Is it just a single “catch all” or do you file using the same folder titles as the “Photos” folder?
    Thanks again for the course and was really sorry to hear about the end of podcasts. I for one enjoyed every podcast.

  3. Hi Steve,
    What do you suggest you use as presets when exporting a photo to FLICKR?
    Thank’s a lot!


    1. Honestly, I don’t use Flickr, so I’m not sure if there is an optimal way to do it or not. I’d probably use my normal web sizes under the resize menu, Jpeg of high but not max quality, and make a watermark as well. Not sure if renaming matters. For metadata, I’d include copyright / website data – but no personal info. Hope that helps 🙂

      1. Thank you very much Steve for your infos; also, what’s a very good idea to do a list by different topics of all your videos and other publications in the BCG College of Photo Education; very useful and practical! Thank’a lot!


        1. Thanks 🙂 I thought it might be handy and I’m going to keep it up to date. It now has a permanent link on the left side of the main site (under the product links – I gotta pay the bills 🙂 )

  4. Steve, I think I found another minor error: In Windows, Ctrl + Shift + M does not open the email window. Nothing happens. Thinking I might have it wrong I went to the Adobe Lightroom shortcuts page and searched for “mail” on that page and found no entries. So I searched for “+ M” and found that Ctrl + Shift + M is used for “Show/Hide Margins” in Print Module, but that’s it.

  5. Steve: for export, you recommend Sharpening = ON, with Standard settings. I’ve always left it off. Why sharpen (more) during export, when I’ve already adjusted Sharpening during the Develop process?

    1. Hi David! I actually (usually) don’t do much – or any – extra sharpening during processing. Depending on the output (print, screen etc), you need different levels, so I try to leave it alone until I need to export.

  6. When you export JPG’s for the screen, or other, you recommend sRGB. If you were working on a photo and exported it as a TIFF, should you use Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB? What does this change do, from JPG to TIFF?
