Use original file extension when saving it after modification

Post by AntonK »

XnViewMP can remember the file type (image format), which was used last used when saving an image (nice feature in any case).
However if the user works with different image formats (like .jpg and .png), this feature makes you do extra clicks.

Consider the scenarion:
1. Open .PNG image.
2. Modify it and save with different name (select same format).
3. Open .JPG imge (or any other format different from the previous one).
4. Modify it and try to save with different name => The app autoselects .PNG format (why?!)

I think, at the 4-th step the app should use the original file extension (.JPG).

In general the app should re-use the original extension, when it is known and supported.
If such behavior isn't acceptable for everyone, let it be an option in the settings.

Version: 0.97.0 (32-bit)
OS: Windows 7 64-bit SP1
