SE: "Subfolder for converted files"

Post by Dreamer »

New option has been added to Shell Extension - "Subfolder for converted files" - but the new subfolder is created only when using "Convert to", it's not created also when using "Convert" (with option resize). I think the new subfolder should be created also when using "Convert", it would be clearer, or at least there should be the same option also for "Convert".

Why? Example: I have 400 files (images) in folder, I want to resize quickly 30 images, so I select 30 images, right click, use "Convert" and...

CURRENTLY - 30 new files with the suffix _1 are created - it's really hard to locate the new files. There is a possibility to create a new folder first and then change the path, but it's not the best solution IMHO, especially for novice users.

MY SUGGESTION (1, 2) - 30 new files would be created in the new subfolder, always (of course, only if this option would be enabled):

1. Apply the option "Subfolder for converted files" also for "Convert".

2. Add the same option ("Subfolder for converted files") also for "Convert".

3. Dialog box for overwriting file for 'convert...' (Pierre's suggestion).

So again, with my suggestions, user has just to do this:

- select the files
- right click
- select "Convert" and OK

What do you think?

Anyone? Pierre is waiting for your reply...

Dialog box for overwriting file might be added too, perhaps, but the option "Subfolder for converted files" also for "Convert" / resize is important IMO.

Yes, subfolder in all cases is better for me.

+1

I think the rule should be:
All options set (subfolder, quality, ...) should also apply for direct conversion.
