When using Radiant Photo with Lightroom, you can choose an Export workflow. This is ideal for batch processing large volumes automatically. This workflow is particularly useful as it relies on the power of Radiant Photo technology’s automatic adjustments and intelligence.  This method is an excellent way to convert between file types, resize images, rename files, and automatically enhance a bunch of images.

  1. With several images selected, choose File > Export to create a custom workflow.
  2. From the *Export To *pop-up list, choose Radiant Photo.
  3. Next, set the User preset to System Presets.  This command gives you access to the numerous presets that come with Radiant Photo. You can also set this to User Presets to access any custom presets.
  4. Choose from the bundled presets using the pop-up menu or the list. 
  5. You can now choose how to edit.
    • To bypass the dialog box and speed up the export, check the box to Hide Radiant Photo Window.  This will just apply the Radiant Photo technology to the selected images and use full automation for the quickest results. 
    • If you want to look at each image and approve, then leave this box unchecked.
  6. In the Export Location, set the Export menu to the Choose Folder Later option, which is the one most useful for presets.  This way, running the Export will prompt you to choose a location for the new files.
  7. If you want the batch exported to come back into your library, just check the box next to Add to This Catalog.  After the batch process is completed, both the original file and the Radiant Photo image can be viewed in the Library view. 
  8. To avoid accidentally overwriting any existing files, choose the Choose a new name for the exported files from the Existing Files pop-up menu.
You can use the File Naming section to choose from many presets on how to name the exported files.
  9. The next section controls what type of files are written.  This is where you choose the file type, color space, bit depth, and compression. 
    • For maximum quality (as well as future editing or printing), choose TIFF files with no compression, an sRGB color space, and a bit depth of 16 bits. 
    • A JPEG file works well if you want to export to the web.
    • If you want to match the default color of Lightroom and intend to do further edits, you can choose ProPhoto RGB.

The remaining controls can be used in special cases to speed up your batch processing.

  • Use the Image Sizing options to create images that are smaller for use in an online gallery.  Check the box next to Resize to fit and select Width and Height.  You can now choose a not.
  • Output Sharpening can improve edge details in an exported file.
  • Decide which Metadata is included in the exported files.
  • If you’d like to watermark your images for the web, simply use the Watermarking controls at the bottom of the Export workflow.
