Paste image in Jpg (not Png)

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to paste an image (let say I open a Jpeg in Mac Preview, select an area of the image, Ctrl+C to save it in the clipboard) in JPEG and not in PNG?

When I Ctrl+V the clipboard VW paste in always in PNG format...

PNG is the standard format VW will convert images when importing.

(PNG is lossless)

But there is a VW setting that will allow you to change to lossy JPEG

format, to save file size. But that will be the standard for all images.

 

If files size doesn't really matter, you should not care much about

the standard PNG concersion.

 

Unlikely but could also be that there are any Settings in Preview which

will default to PNG for Clipboard (?)

But it is in :

VW Preferences > Edit >> Default Compression PNG / JPEG

(upper middle on right hand side)

Hmmh,

looks like it only works if you File > Import Image > Dialog PDF/JPEG

 

I also do not find a related Setting in Preview, Finder, Digital Images, ...
(Maybe I have seen such in Linux)
