Saving Image

You can save the image opened in the viewer to the disk in one of many supported file formats, with specified compression type, and additional file type options (JPEG quality, color depth, mirroring, GIF interlacing, TIFF stripping, etc.).

To save image:

  1. Open Save As dialog box:
    Viewer menu:File/Save As...
    Viewer shortcut key:Ctrl+S
  2. Enter new filename.
  3. Select image file type.
  4. Choose compression and additional file type options (quality, color depth, etc.). To show them, click the Options button.
  5. Click the Save button.

Tips and tricks:

  1. If you don't want PictView to append the default file extension, type in your extension and add extra dot after the extension. Example:
    • MyImage.jpeg.
  2. PictView prevents creating "ugly" case of file names. Should the resulting base file name be in upper-case and the default extension in lower-case, PictView will rather convert also the file name to lower-case. Entire upper-case file names usually originate on FAT, NWFS or ISO 9660 file systems, they get created by legacy 16-bit applications or get transferred via FTP, SFTP or FTPS from other systems.
    Should you really want the entire file name remain in upper-case or mixed base file name upper-case and extension lower-case, type in the entire file name including the extension using the desired case. Examples:
    • MYIMAGE.jpg
