comment Can Lightroom 4 user export presets automatically increment sequence number across different exports?
@damned yes, what I want is the behavior you describe above that apparently I can't have. I want Lightroom to figure out that I'm exporting files at different times to a directory and to choose the next sequence number. (An alternative way of thinking about this is to associate a current sequence number with a particular Export Preset and increment that number whenever the preset is used). But I guess I can't have that....

None of the system templates that ship with the software use this feature. Do you know of anywhere that I can find other templates?

comment Can Lightroom 4 user export presets automatically increment sequence number across different exports?
It's not. I just tried again with a fresh preset and a fresh directory. The first file was correctly named foo-1.jpg. The second got the same message box, and when I selected using a unique name, I got foo-1-2.jpg. The next file became foo-1-3.jpg. Do you actually have this working the way it appears it's supposed to work?

comment What does pixels per inch mean, exactly?
OK, so I guess I was completely wrong in my guess, which is fine. And what you say makes sense, I guess, except that I just don't understand why Photoshop and other tools tell me that a particular image has some PPI value. It sounds from what you say as though PPI is a value you can choose independently of the image (a viewpoint which is supported by the answer Birlf pointed me to in his comment to the original question).
