prevent preview to be calculated

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to prevent the preview? I cannot see a checkbox.

This is required when saving BIG images. It takes a lot to create a preview, then takes a lot to "abort" the preview, than takes the right amount of time to actually save.

thank you!!!

Can you provide more information?

 

What size images are you try to work with, in pixels?

 

What file type(s) are you trying to save as?

It's a png 3800 x 3200 with transparency (i use optipng for shrinking some kb).

just to save some time, i hoped to bypass the preview computation! ;)

by the way, it seems that the issue is on optipng end... normal png saves, as provided by paint.net, work pretty fast instead.

OptiPNG is a lossless compressor. It's going to take a long time regardless of the preview. In fact, the preview has nothing to do with the wait.

You'll have to ask the author of the OptiPNG plugin to add support for cancellation. This would enable pressing OK to "cancel" the preview calculation and go directly to saving.

 

But, it's usually better to not bother with using OptiPNG every time you save. Instead, save as a "regular" PNG, and then do all the optimizations later in a big batch. Otherwise you'll always be waiting forever every single time you click on Save.
