After corrections - how to auto-rename saved file

Post by mrwul »

When performing corrections/adjustments, when clicking on the 'save' button, XnViewMP will overwrite the original by default.
Q: Is there a way that the file then be saved as a new file, adding e.g. _1 to the file name. In case such file exists, then _2, etc.
Automatically..., i.e. not having to perform a 'Save As' action.

The source file will be left untouched.

Thanks!

Maybe add this as a new feature? Just click on Save button and when the file already exists, then add _1.
It is faster than the save as action.
Just a suggestion.
