Description

When I'm exporting to Flickr (or any of the other web export options DT allows), I almost always want a local copy stored on my machine, too. For this, I have to export twice.

Since DT creates a local file before uploading to the web, could we have the option to save it as a permanent file using the user-defined naming and path variables from the existing "file on disk" settings?

Or maybe it makes more sense to make two plugins instead of one:
1) file export
2) web export
?

Adding an option to keep the local file makes more sense than adding another module.

again, that might be doable via lua rather than changing the DT core. It depends if the use case is a special one or a common one...
