If the administrator gives them permission, Media Portal users can reformat images as they export them. For example, they can change the size, file format, and image quality. Automatically reformatting images as they are exported saves time by not having to reformat images separately. Moreover, administrators can create a preset —a pre-established selection of image format settings. You can use a preset when exporting images to reformat them to the specifications of your company.
The following two restrictions apply if you export image assets by way of a user-defined conversion or if you export original master images:
The compressed Zip export file has a maximum file size of 1 GB for the export job.
You can have a maximum of 500 total assets per export job.
To specify export options available to Media Portal users
Enable User-Defined Conversion
When selected, this option lets users choose other from the Size drop-down list in the Export Selected Assets window. Users can then choose a unit of measure such as pixels or centimeters, and then specify the desired width and height. When they export or download these files, the image files are reformatted.
When pixels are chosen from the Size drop-down list, the resulting image width x height cannot exceed 100 million pixels. This size equates to 10,000 x 10,000 pixels for a square image, or roughly 8,000 x 12,000 pixels for a 2x3 aspect ratio image. This size limitation does not apply if you export original master images.
Deselect this option if you want users to download files without reformatting them as they are downloaded.
Enable Export Original
Lets you export original master images. In the Export Selected Assets panel, users can open the Conversion drop-down menu and choose Export Original to export original files. Deselect this option if you want to force users to choose an Image Preset or choose conversion options when they export images.
