XnConvert Android suggestions

Post by Amoli »

Feature requests for the Android version:

- template editing... or renaming, at least (oh, pesky typos ;))
- browser: long press picture to select (long press first & last to select a consecutive range of pictures, tap to select additional pics), tap to view when nothing is selected (= Android expected behavior, i.e. Simple Gallery, F-Stop & likely others)
- user interface improvements (see below)
- editor/converter integration - cropping before or AFTER resizing (while only saving once) would be really neat

This app is great, my go to batch resizer going forward, especially since webp support seems pretty rare otherwise.

That said, configuration can be a bit awkward and not self-explanatory. The resize dialog is missing a hint that leaving either the height or width fields empty will keep the original aspect ratio - easy to miss. I've been using the app for months & looking for that feature without realizing it's already there.

Template creation mode: the "Convert" button is non-functional, and the pop-up hint to "save" the template is a less than straight forward suggestion to use "Append" option from the dot menu, if the user can find it. Why not just change it to label/function "Save template" and be done? (Then again, why can't I create templates while resizing my own pictures? ... Never mind.)

Could you integrate the editor with the resizer/converter? Intermediate saves degrade image quality.

That's it for now, and thanks again for all your hard work! :D

From other thread:
- no way to change the output folder (Android 11+ restrictions? No problem with older OS)
yes android 11 restrictions :(
- user interface idiosyncrasies (see link above)
which one?
Btw, why is there no bicubic resize option? Or other resize algorithms from the likes of Avisynth, other than lanczos & bilinear?
you would like to choose bilinear, lanczos or other resize kernel?

You can edit current template by using same name... But perhaps not easy to use?

Right long press to select consecutive range must be added!

you means in batch convert, to be able to add a crop before or after, right?

You have 'AUTO', which will be better?

Sorry but i don't understand, you can use 'Add' from menu
