[PATCH] Allow user to set sub-sampling when exporting as JPEG
Currently JPEGs exported by Darktable are huge, switching sub-sampling to 2x2 greatly reduces the file size. This should be a user setting along with JPEG quality when exporting.
#3 Updated by Pascal de Bruijn almost 5 years ago
- bitness set to 64-bit
- Status changed from Fixed to Closed: won't fix
- System set to all
- Affected Version set to git development version
For correctness sake: this feature wasn't implemented.
As Simon states we don't want to clutter our menu's with options few people understand. We've chosen a similar approach as UFRaw, where subsampling behavior is linked to JPEG quality.
So JPEG Q95 gives to very high quality large files
And JPEG Q90 gives you good quality files that are fairly compact
