    Default saving out bitmaps from gallery as PNG

    right click and save from bitmap gallery

    with some files clearly listed as PNG in the gallery, xara defaults to JPEG for save [out]:

    it's not all PNG just some

    save from gallery is supposed to be quick and easy, it's a while now since i did this work in xara but I really am now beginning to regret coming back for this project; I don't remember it being this way , changing to PNG in the dialog time after time is a complete waste of time

    why is it doing this ?

    could be...

    I was hoping there was some sort of under the hood rationale for this, perhaps related to optimisation - or the nannying 'this image would be better converted to a jpeg' philosophy that xara has on import which ignores completely artifact generation during processing - something I could switch out....

    handrawn, I've tried with a host of PNGs and all Save into PNG. All had an Alpha channel.

    When I made a Bitmap Copy of one as True Colour only and then saved out as a PNG, on re-importing, it reports as PNG but was then only presented as JPEG.
