Open and save dialogs

From GIMP GUI Redesign
Jump to: navigation, search

Open and Save dialogs should be implemented natively, not to destroy experience of the platform you are working on

Open Dialog

  • other points:
    • a favourite folder should look like a folder
    • in Open Dialog GIMP could remember sorting order (set by user) within a folder, during one session

Save Dialog - the most important thing about saving is that one saves exactly this picture, and right now, that's why:

  • We need a big preview img window, but without rulers, menu bar, etc.
  • We could set by default Zoom tool, to see the quality details.
  • User shouldn’t be able to use other tools while saving (for ex. a brush). Even if it doesn’t save what got changed while saving.
  • We don’t like the solution to place quality slider and other settings in the existing image window.
