I would like to know how i could save a picture at a specific resolution so i could have printed without looking like it was blown up.. I tried using print module and saving using steps i found on a guys Youtube page. but it seems when i go to an online printer and i preview Picture it's chopped off? Not sure what i am doing wrong.. Help a Newbie Lightroom Guy!!

Thanks Keith..

Keith,

Could you give us a little more detail?
Are you trying to print directly from Lightroom?
Are you trying to blow up the image or just trying to take a picture you shot and print it to 5x7 or something of the like?

I am trying to have a picture printed form mpix.com and it seems as though when i choose size at mlix it cuts off the original. if i choose a size of 12x18 it is okay but my frame size fits a 9x12. Not sure how i save picture that when i choose 9x12 it will be full size picture.. Sorry if this sounds idiotic but it's baffling me..

I don't user mpix, I have a local printer I use. I do need to crop photos sometimes depending on the size. Check this link out, it covers most options for resizing photos in Lightroom.

If ordering prints online use the export box not print module...

I was actually thinking that there was a way a preserving the whole picture without cropping. if i like a picture and i want it printed say 10x13 i want the whole picture not a cropped version to fit..

Thanks Greg. I did use the export in this case and saved as a size and then sent to the online Printer.. I think it just might be me in this case maybe i just don't have the settings correct.. Will Check out link from previous guy and see if that gives me clarity..
