.JPEG to .PNG in Fewer Easy Steps?

Recommended Posts



I've been a heavy user of this great software for years now and it recently occurred to me that I spend a huge amount of time editing .jpeg files and saving the result as .png.


Just wondering if anyone here knows of any way to save time resaving as a different filetype (The fastest way I'm aware of is to Save As, then find the desired filetype in a dropdown menu).


Automating it would be fantastic, but if there's a keyboard shortcut or something, that would also be much appreciated.

There's no setting to change or anything, but Ctrl+Shift+S will bring up the Save As... dialog box so you can change the filetype quickly.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

Thanks for the replies, I do use ctrl+shift+s already, which indeed, cuts the time in half.


Looks like handling them in bulk would be the way to go, except that I'm usually only working with a few images at a time and I find it very useful to keep them in order of acquisition.


I downloaded the tool regardless, because I bet there will be some occasions where it's just what I need.

Another possibility is to edit your images, put the flattened images on separate layers (in one file), then run the layer saver application
