The primary question is, what are the appropriate pixel dimensions for exporting photos for watching on a 1080p device?
I will suggest that you leave them at there maximum size or what i usually do is to export them at 1024 x 780 72ppi (ppi at that point dont do anything..but im use to do it ) with a sRGB color profile. A generic recipe good for many type of projector / tv / web / email ....
I am going to export as generic sRGB for now, but eventually I plan on reexporting using profiles I come up with after the calibration. Any advice on this topic is most welcome.
you dont need to export or you dont want to export with a calibrated monitor profile.. a custom profile is for the monitor only.. and since you cant really have a monitor profile for your tv.. it is best just to *play* with the tv setting until you get a good image to your taste when you watch tv. Then when you view your image save as sRGB color spcae they will look good.
For best quality, are there any pros/cons to using the LR3 slideshow export to movie formats?
Pro? easy to config since all is done in Lightroom.. Con? not really.. some will say that you dont ahve as much power to create the best slideshow.. something you could do with Fotomagico for example.. but for a simple slideshow with or without music Ligthroom is a very capable software and easy to use.
