Regarding "Metadata support" I'm not clear what is exactly missing in XnView MP 0.53. Could someone please help, here?
helmut wrote: Other opinions? Other stuff we could get rid off?
- For Metadata the topic is complex due to different level of use and the various file format. I consider most of the features I need is there. More can be done for example with editon of EXIF data or extend to video (seen from EXIFtool) but this is a can of worms and the average user could become lost / lose precious data while touching them.

The new platform should be the opportunity to provide up-to-date and easy-to-use features and improve user experience.

File Export has it's focus on optimization of file size and the result.
Adjust DPI and resize are two different functions

"Save as" is a standard, basic feature and should be kept anyway.

Adjust DPI is done through the resize dialog. Deselect the option "Resample" keeps the original resolution and allows to change either the DPI or the target print size. The "DPI adjust" is currently not in MP. For me, no need to add it.
Improvement suggestion: In the resize dialog, the drop-down list suggest standard pixel sizes and also standard print sizes. It would be nice to have only the right parameters changed (only dpi for print size and only resolution for pixel x/y, both for %).
These 2 improvements could be discussed in a specific topic.
