Save multi-page file

Post by pgilabert » Thu Jun 27, 2019 7:29 am

Hi all,

I have a problem, when I open a multi-page tiff file, if I modify it and then I save it, it does not save the file with all the pages, only the one that is displayed. You can help me to know how you can save that file with all the pages.

Thank you.

As far as I know, currently the only way to edit the pages of a multi-page file is to first extract the images in the file, then edit the individual images, and then create a new multi-page file... :(

XnView MP seems to currently lack a function to extract the individual images, one is included in XnView Classic in the viewer, but a function to create a new multi-page file is available in the browser.

Exception: If it is required to perform identical actions on each image in a multi-page file, the batch convert function can be used if the output tab is suitably configured.

I'll give an example to explain myself better, if I open a tiff file with several pages without modifying anything and give it to save as or save it only saves the page I see, while in xnclassic it does it correctly. I take this opportunity to also ask if the option to draw is in the xnclassic since I can not find it while in xnmp if that option is present.

thank you.

Interesting difference if that is correct, a bug :bug: ?

But your ultimate need is to be able to edit selected images in a multi-page file?

I take this opportunity to also ask if the option to draw is in the xnclassic since I can not find it while in xnmp if that option is present.
I don't see a draw option, only an option to add text, so you don't have everything you need in one program?

I'm sending you a PM.
