Summary: Wishlist: Warning when saving an image would reduce
the file size by over 50%
Version: git master
Component: File formats
Target Milestone: ---
This wishlist item came from a conversation with some game developers in my
This is the situation to try to make better.
You have a multi layered high res file that you have been working from. You are
ready to share it, but need to shrink the image size down a lot by collapsing
layers and shrinking the image size. Before exporting it you make some small
adjustments like sharpening and curves to help some areas pop. You like the
result so you hit Ctrl + S.
You just destroyed most of your working image that you have been building up.
A warning dialog with something like "Your file size has decreased by over 50%
since your last save. Are you sure you want to do this?"
While someone can easily get past the warning and still lose details from their
working file, I think this might help mitigate this situation. Not sure if
anyone else comes across this situation when working. It is pretty minor, but a
nice UX touch I think.
