Export to multiple files per resolution

Recommended Posts

The missing batch export feature is critical for me, I have 20 affinity files and every file must be exported in 5 different PNG resolutions (16x16, 48x48, 64x64, 256x256 and 512x512).

You can imagine exporting 100 images using the UI requires hours and the procedure is error prone.

No batch, no command line argument, have you some hint for a poor devil like me?

I tried to export to SVG (convert 20 files is affordable) and then using Inkscape from command line convert SVG to PNG but the quality is lower compared to export done from Affinity Designer...

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

If you explore the Export Persona you should find that you can perform multiple exports with different sizes in one operation. Additionally, you can create an export preset that incorporates those different sizes, so you can easily perform the same operation on another image.

Use one batch job for each resolution/size. You can process 100 files at a time. You can select the target file type and folder.

File > New Batch Job

Hi thanks, it sounds like the solution to my problem, 'Persona' is a bit confused but I will look closer to it
