We all love editing in Lightroom, but what's the best and fastest way of getting the images out of Lightroom into other file formats for various uses?

Exporting your images from Lightroom can always be super quick and easy if you take a little time to set up Export Presets for all the common exporting tasks you do on a daily basis - whether that's further editing in Photoshop, sharing on social media, or even printing your work.

No more trying to remember file formats, sizes, resolutions and dimensions, and then wondering where the exported image ended up!

In this video, I'll show you how I export images for editing in Photoshop (a much better way than just Command + E) - the settings I use for Facebook - and most importantly, how to set up, save, update and organise your own Export Presets.

This is a huge time saver and is guaranteed to speed up your editing process. And if you're anything like me, you'll love your new streamlined workflow!
