Zip All option by right clicking

Post by murthy363 » Mon Feb 19, 2007 8:47 am

Presently, in Browser mode and in the thumbnail area, we have on right clicking, 'Selet All' as one of the options.

We may have another option 'Zip Selected'. This will open the same window as Tools > Plugin > zippack and further actions may be the same.

Also another right click option 'email selected' to send by email with the same functionality as Tools > send by email.

These options will make zipping / emailing of selected files easy.

Thanks in advance for your attention.

You can use Ctrl+click and any archive program with such features (WinRAR, Zip Genius...) as workaround.

Thanks Dreamer for your response, may be my question needs more elaboration. I will do it now.

I use 1.90.2 with zip Plugin installed. This facilitates me to compress as a zip file the selected images by Tools > Plugin > ZipPack into the the selected folder and filename.

Now my request is to provide a facility by which, I can get this facility by directly right clicking in the thumbnail area after selecting the images (by the 'Select All' right-click menu option or by individual / range selection) to be zipped.

I further extend this request by providing a facility to send the selected images to zip, mail, and ALL other deliverables available through the 'Create' button of the program.

May be,we can have a right click menu option 'Send Selected To' in the thumbnail area with sub-options Zip, Mail, Slideshow, Contact Sheet etc.,

I use mouse more than the keyboard and wish to access all the features of any program with fewer clicks of mouse operation. I think that a good many prefer to do it this way.

I too would love to have a right click option for "SEnd to zip" or "zip all"

this would be similar to a feature in winrar, where you could right click on selected files and choose -> Add to "Folder.rar" will result in a folder.rar in the same directory.

that's way too specific to be worthwhile adding
how about a general

send to...{list of plugins}

menu/options messy as it is. :mrgreen:
