The Save Options Panel
This panel allows you to specify how your processed images will be saved.
You can save your processed images to a single folder by selecting the Save Processed Image To Folder radio button and then use the Browse button to select the folder where your images should be saved.
Alternatively you can save your processed images to a sub folder that is created under the folder where the original images reside by selecting Save Processed Image To Sub Folder radio button and enter a sub folder name in the text box under the radio button. If you enter an incorrect/invalid sub folder name into the text box an error will occur.
Use the Processed Image File Type combo to choose one of the supported image formats. Your processed files will be saved in this format.
If the image type you select is a JPEG Format you can then go on to specify the JPEG Quality using the slider control. This control sets the level of detail in your images, which also has an effect on file size. Typically, a value in the range of 50-70% is perfectly acceptable for images to be used on a website. For good quality photographic images where file size is less of an issue, set the slider to 100%.
If the image type you select is a Tagged Image File Format you can then go on to specify the TIFF Compression Level using the combo box. This control sets the level of compression applied to your images.
The Image Resolution box allows you to set the resolution of your output images. If you select Maintain Original Resolution then each processed image will have the same resolution as the original image. If you select Manually Set Resolution then the resolution of all the processed images will be as specified in DPI (Dots Per Inch) text box. Again, most users can happily leave this set to the default value of 96 DPI.
The Interpolation Method combo box allows you to select the method by which new pixel values are calculated when you process images. This feature is intended for advanced users - most users can happily leave it set to the highest quality setting of "Bicubic (High Quality)".
Use the Add Prefix and Add Suffix tick boxes and text boxes in the Image File Renaming box to add a prefix and or suffix to the file name of your processed images.
If you are saving your processed images as JPEG Format then you can tick the Retain EXIF Meta Information tick box in the Miscellaneous Settings box to copy the EXIF information from the original image to the processed image. Note this will only copy the EXIF meta information to the processed image if the original image actually has EXIF meta information.
When the File Replace Warning tick box is ticked and processing images will cause existing image files to be overwritten you will be prompted to confirm that the existing file should be replaced. If you do not want the warning prompts to occur when an existing image will be overwritten during processing un-tick the File Replace Warning tick box.
When the Recreate Original Folder Structure tick box is ticked the processed images will be saved to the output folder in sub folders matching the folder structure of original images. Note this option only works if you have specified that all the processed images should be saved to a single folder e.g. you have selected Save Processed Image To Folder
This panel can be docked, floated, hidden and resized - see the Multiple Image Resizer .NET Interface Layout help topic for more information.
