How to save Batch convert settings for reuse

Post by Django29 » Tue Dec 18, 2018 1:14 pm

Hello
For my purpose, it would be very usefull to select a default action (for ex. : resize to height 800pix), because I have often a lot of images bundles to resize, and for each of them, I have to re-select the action.

Now you write in English when I answered your last thread in French! :wink:

A question: are you using Batch convert - Outils > Conversion par lot... - which can save the setting used for the next time?

Yes, but I don't see how to save the action. Maybe here :

Confirmation : it works. Thanks / Merci.

You have edited your post twice while I was looking for the solution!

The full answer is in two parts:

The last settings used can be automatically saved as you show above;

On the Input tab, at the bottom left, there is an icon to save the current settings for reuse, and an icon to reload them later, so it is possible to save multiple scripts that can be reused when required.

Edit:

The icons are actually at the bottom of the Batch convert window, whichever tab is selected.

I didn't get this second possibility, but it's OK for me with Paramètres/Enregistrer la liste des actions à la sortie.
