Re: Exported images growing in size

Hi Klaus Sorry if this is a dumb question, but when should I use Binfile and when should I use File? Aren't all files stored on computers "binary"? By way of a note - I trained & worked as a programmer a long time ago, then got out of it. I've missed everything that has happened in programming since...

Re: Repeated use of Crop Image causes crash to desktop

Where Crop crashed after 1 to 3 repetitions, Export Snapshot carried out 77 repetitions with no problems, and it was much faster than Crop. The only downside that I can think of to usin...

Re: Exported images growing in size

Thanks Jean-Marc & Klaus I got Jean-Marc's suggestion to work immediately, so I didn't try Klaus's (although I'll store it away for future use).
