Save for web...

Recommended Posts

Is there any plan to add a new feature that mimics the Save For Web feature from Photoshop / Web Image Guru?

Actually, what I'm really interested in is color reduction when saving in PNG format (e.g. if the edited picture has only 24 colors and you save it in PNG-8 format, there's no need to save info for all 256 colors). I'm talking about optimizing the PNG file as more as possible (by keeping only needed chunks).

That would be EXTREMELY useful :)

Avatars and such things usually have a size limit, so making the file as small as possible while retaining image quality is important. Many pictures don't require the full 24-bit color space.

So for me, mainly, it is a bandwidth issue. I have broadband myself, but not everyone does.

Yeah but when water boils it's exciting and bubbly or something.

We just haven't fleshed out the saving options for things like PNG file types, e.g. to support 24- and 8-bit saving. The big focus for this release (3.0) was MDI and gradients and some other usability things. This stuff is still on the giant feature backlog/todo list :)

I'm just curious... how does optimizing a png file help you? Is a fully loaded png degraded in picture quality, or maybe you just want to save storage space on you computer?

Actually I'm using PNG files on mobile phones and size does matter :)

TinSoldier, I know those tools. I recommend pngout for optimizing. It has the best results. You can find it here: http://advsys.net/ken/utils.htm

Rick, thank you for your answer. Maybe this will be part of the next major version's todo list :)
