Mike,
Would it be possible in a future version to have LZW compression available as an option for tiff files please. I think this would be in Convert, Filter Save As and Print to File.

 Cool
I don't want to add to Mike's load of plans, but along the lines of your request, I was thinking of a Q-ZIP option in that same box where multiple images can be compressed and zipped in one operation.
Just another dot in that box?
Maybe using (coupling to) PKZIP and WINZIP, or a Qimage zipped file compatible with all zips?

Fred,
Now that Qimage has "Explore Current Folder" in the Utilities menu, I have found you can create zip folders from there. I use 7-Zip (free open source program) and that puts a right click item in Windows Explorer.
Once the e-mail copies have been produced, accept the option to go to the {Q}E-mail folder and then "Explore". Next, select the images & create the zip from the right click menu. Finally, select and right click the zip folder and choose "Send To" your e-mail program.
Not as neat as a "dot in the box" but it saves you opening Explorer outside of Qimage.

Terry, what a brilliant idea you gave me. For some reason, I never even thought of that.
I must tell you though, my setup works even better and slicker.
No need for explore current folder from Utilities. I open Folders in Qimage and .....
I right click on the {Q}email folder that contains the images, and I have a selection that says, PKZIP; add to archive new or existing; or ZIP and EMAIL!
One click, I get a zip save box. I name my zip file, and click SAVE. All done!
Q saves in the same folder or you can choose a different one.
Thanks for adding that zip feature so quickly, Mike!  Grin Grin Grin
Seriously for a moment!  Isn't it wonderful how a simple exchange of ideas can produce a new facility in a wonderful program like Qimage?

I've just tried it - thanks Smiley

It saves in the main folder, not the {Q}e-mail sub folder, I assume that's what you  meant?
And ...
To e-mail the zip, right click the main folder, Explore, right click the zip and Send To your e-mail program.

I assume this came about with V265, the release notes just say:

Folder browser: Improved the folder browser context menu so that folders can be deleted or renamed without producing error messages.
The full Windows context menu is all there now, I seem to re-call trying to zip from there a while ago but couldn't.
No LZW compression yet though, maybe after all the barbecues, fireworks and fun tomorrow  Wink

"Thanks"  Terry-M  &  Fred A

For explaining it so clear how to use the zip. Yes and thanks to Mike for putting it in:-)))
I think I will learn more on this new forum than all the emails from the yahoo groups.

So back to rubber necking:-)))
