Hi,
I'm new this is my first post. I just got my first DSLR the other day. And now I'm looking at buying some photo editing software.
I downloaded the free 30 day trial Lightroom 2 program. I really like the program and it looks great too.
My only question is this. It seems that maybe Adobe forgot to to put in a resizing tool. About all I can to is crop my images. But I want to resize them. I looked on the help section for Adobe's web site for this issue. And I could not find anything.

The two programs I'm thinking about are Lightroom 2 or Elements 7.
But I'm not sure wich one to get. It seems maybe Lightroom is more of a photo library and not so much of a editor. I don't really care at this point in time about a library I can organize my own photos for now.

So my budget will allow me to get Lighthouse 2. But I can save money and get Elements 7. I'm almost sold on Lighthouse 2 but if I can't resize my photos in it thats no good for me. As I will be doing a lot of resizing.

My computer is a home built PC.
Running Vista-64bit
Athlon 64x2 4600+
2GB of Ram
Geforce 8800GTS video card PCI-e x16

Thanks for any advice or tips about what photo program I shold choose. Or on how to make Lighthouse 2 resize my photos not crop them.

Ron

You can resize an image on export in Lightroom. So if you go to File->Export you can choose the image file format and the desired image dimensions.

pgtips,
Thanks for the reply.
That worked I just never saw it before when I went to export.

Thanks for the help.

You're welcome.

I've personally not found anything in Lightroom that makes me want to abandon my copy of Photoshop Elements. The organizer supplied with Elements is good enough for me, I can edit RAW files in ACR, and when needed I can go into the editor to make more complex edits, something that I found impossible to do with Lightroom. It also helps that Elements was cheaper ...
