Batch processing with Transformation\File\Export...

Batch processing a script ending with Transformation\File\Export...:

1) does not seem to save Embedded Scripts when checked for tiff saves

2) checked box to save Embedded Scripts not grayed out for jpeg saves
[Assumes that jpegs still will not accept large script meta data.]

3) If Exif info present, an unchecked box does not delete it from the saved file.
[Perhaps the same for GPS info as well.]

Addendum:

4) Apparently, not all of the Starting image's Image Info of a Batch -> Script -> Export process is passed on... ...For example, not all of the Camera Info will be available in the saved file.

This may be part of confusion associated with Export's check box options.

I made some changes and I think this is working, but please try it again with the next release and let me know if there are still problems.

Export does not embed a script when requested for a tiff image save:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The saved tiff image when opened in the browser will not have a 'Run Embedded Script' option. The script should include Frame and Sharpen but not the script of image index 3 if it has one.

Also, may be there should be an option to exclude the Export portion of the Embedded Script because of Export's specifics for destination, sharpening, sizing, etc.

I fixed the problem of the script not being saved when files are exported for the next release, but the script that is saved does not include the script from the original image (or from the export transformation either).

Confirmed...

A couple of observations re Export's GUI that might cause some confusion:
1) "Folder:" does not update to the re-naming of 'New Folder'
2) The jpeg quality slider does not gray when a jpeg Save is not selected

Neither of these has any impact on the execution of Export.

I changed Export to hide the JPEG slider when it is not needed.

If you rename the folder and click OK, it does update the folder name. If you click Cancel it does not.
Unless you update the default settings, the next time you export you will get the old name.
