6. Output Options

You can change the output directory of the images if desired. You can optionally rename the pictures that get converted in a specific format. There are two options, one being prefixed/suffix, and other of the progressive number.

In prefix/suffix mode, ‘#_copy’ means that the images will be saved with the original names, with a ‘_copy’ added at the end.

In progressive number mode, ‘#_copy’ means that the output will be numbered. The ‘#’ will be replaced by a number, starting with 1 the default, with ‘_copy’ in the end. So, the first image to get converted will be saved as ‘1_copy.jpg’. You can always enter a format of your own. There is an option of overwriting the original files too if you want it that way.

7. Image Compression Settings

For PNG and JPEG images, you can set a compression level in the ‘Image Settings’ by adjusting the slider to set the output image quality.

Additionally, the interpolation setting for advanced users uses special algorithms when enlarging photos, which usually gets pixelated. Interpolation makes the picture smoother.
