Options in the Images Tab

To access these options, choose View/Preferences or press F2. The "Preferences" dialog box opens, click on the Images tab to display the related options.

JPEG: Writing options

Image Quality - Specify the JPEG compression level (values from 1 to 99). A low compression level (1 to 10) produces small files but the image quality is very low. A high compression level (80 to 99) produces very good quality images but larger files.

WMF: Default Load Size

Width and Height - Specify the WMF default width and Height. WMF is a vector format. It means that it can be opened and displayed at any size without quality loss. To display it, the application needs to convert it to bitmap and need a default size to perform the conversion.

Kodak PhotoCD

Default Load Size - Specify the default Kodak PhotoCDŽ (PCD) load size. Kodak PhotoCDŽ is a multi-resolution format. It means that each PCD file includes several resolutions of the same picture. Small resolutions are fast to load but with poor quality. High resolutions have good quality but are memory consuming.

Image Display mode

Ignore Transparency Information in GIF files

GIF files contain transparency information. By default, the application reads this information and automatically converts the GIF image to a 32BPP bitmap with alpha channel transparency. If this option is chosen, the transparency information will be ignored (GIF only) and the image background will keep its original color (for compatibility with previous versions of the application).
