FEATURE REQ: "Save Copy As.."


Go to solution Solved by Rick Brewster,

Recommended Posts

Found this asked for in a very old thread, but as of v4.3.12 it isn't yet implemented.

 

Many times I need to save a .png or .jpg from a .pdn file without losing quality/layers/whatever, just to test the resulting image in another program or website, or the like.

 

As a fact, many image editing programs already have this as an option since ages and it would be a great addition.

 

My current workaround (since ages too) is to "Save As.." > Filetype: PNG or JPG > Choose "Merge all layers" > "Ok"

 

After saving, just Undo with 'Ctrl-Z' and you will get back your original layers for saving as a PDN file or continue editing.

 

Hope this can be seen sooner than later. Thanks for the great job in paint.net

Or to avoid any change to your original image:

1. Ctrl+Shift+C
2. Ctrl+Alt+V

3. Ctrl+S

4. Ctrl+W

which does:

1. Copy Merged
2. Paste into New Image

3. Save

4. Close

IIRC, we've looked at implementing this and it effectively stalled at the design stage. Basically, how should "Export As ..." remember (or not) the settings and file name/path used for saving. It's not difficult to implement, it just requires a fleshed out design for this. It could definitely go in as a 5.0.x feature within the next few months if this gets resolved and ironed out.
