stuff missing in preview when saving?
« on: October 07, 2005, 11:56:22 AM »
I tested the new features of the latest version (great!), editing a CD front cover, adding stuff and so on. Last item I added was the "Emil" text, but why isn't that showing up in the preview when I clicked "Save as" (see left buttom corner)?

did you happen to use the Tool command in Screenshot Captor to launch and edit the image file with an external program?

No.

The background was a JPG file, the image I added in the foreground (using "Edit/Copy image to clipboard" and "Edit/Past clipboard image as new object") PNG.

And what I noticed just now:
filesize of original JGP:      160 kb
filesize of original PNG:       73 kb
filesize of resulting PNG: 1342 kb!?
:o

i guess i'm not applying the compression settings in options to the "Save As" routine.. so its saving the png without compression -
ill add a special slider to options to you can set the Save As compression settings.
