Post by Crysler » Wed Jun 21, 2006 5:06 pm

Is there a way to adjust the jpeg image quality when using the shellextension's image conversion?

Sadly it's linked to the JPEG quality setting in XnView and can't be configured from the Shell Extension. Please make a request for it.

You mean configuring in Options > Write > JPEG > Quality?
For testing I set that to 6 which produces a lousy image. The setting is rememberd between XnView sessions but the shellextension's conversion still produces a way better image (about 80).

Like 4 fixed settings to choose from?
Yes I'd like that, but then again: which four to choose? There might be people who'd like 98/90/80/70 while others would prefer 90/75/60/40 or such.
How about a simple config-textfile where we can put our own values?

Like this:

Code: Select all

jpegquality1=98
jpegquality2=90
jpegquality3=70
jpegquality4=10
would produce a flyout-submenu for the JPG menu item

Code: Select all

JPG > Quality1: 98
      Quality2: 90
      Quality3: 70
      Quality4: 10

What other shell extension?

Maybe I wrote somhow unclear; what I meant was that this could be a way the XnView shell extension could handle different quality settings. The way to do this came solely from my confused brain Image not from another shell extension.

This feature is much desired here!

Also, rather than providing some preset values, I'd like to have just single value control provided since I don't want to more items in the context menu than necessary. And if the four choices were to be put in the options menu, why not just provide some config option like in XnView itself?

A bit hidden considering I only use the "convert into" submenu, but thanks for pointing that bit of info out for me :)

Stumbled across this old request of mine and found that I forgot to say thank you. Well done, Pierre! Image
