Do you have JPEG selected on your Output tab?

If 'Preserve extension' is selected, shouldn't the 'Format' options on the right be greyed out, otherwise isn't there a conflict in the interface? :wink:

Extension is keepd but not the format, so it can saves JPEG with png extension

I'll take your word for that sometimes being useful... :D

But here the option has caused confusion, maybe no way of avoiding that?
