I’d really like to see a way to export to JPEG with a single mouse click, without needing to select/acknowledge the output options for every single image. The previously selected output options shall apply in this case. (In a normal workflow, you’ll always use the same settings on several subsequent images, anyway.)
In a perfect world, there’d also (additionally) be a hotkey for that function.
I have suggested this by mail already, a long time ago. Unfortunately, this has not been addressed yet…
Converting multiple images in one process has some disadvantages.
It takes very long, once it’s started (otherwise, it’s done in a background process while you work).
Normally, I do not process every image; I only pick those that I want to keep, those which justify the extra effort. In a folder of hundreds of images, you won’t remember later which ones you wanted to convert. It’s much easier (and a better workflow IMHO) do convert them “on the fly” while already working on the next.
For that, I still want one single button or hotkey to export with the current settings. A combination with Ctl or Alt might be OK, but needing both of them is not (it should be possible to hit them with one hand, so the other can remain at the trackball).
If you use the blue button at the right bottom, you still need to hit the “export” button in the popup window afterwards. That’s exactly what I’m complaining about.
I’d like to see some way to start the conversion/export (with the last recently used settings) by a single click or key.
why should I have tried Ctl+K? It’s not mentioned anywhere…
However, the function is exactly the same as Ctl+Alt+P, the context menu, or the export button at the lower right corner of the screen: in all of these cases, the “export” window appears, and in all of these cases you have to additionally click on it’s export button as well to really start the conversion.
With SINGLE KLICK something different is meant: the conversion should start IMMEDIATELY, without the export window popping up - using the last recently used selection for output size etc.
I am requesting this for about one year now, but obviously the concept (nor my first post) is still not understood.
However, with all respect: I don’t think the voting system is the right way to handle this. Being a software developer as well, I also think about which suggestions a) make sense and b) are easy to implement. These are then considered rather quickly, as soon as time permits. IMHO this suggestion easily matches both criteria…
