Hello everyone!

Does anybody know when exactly continous export (which can be accessed in the Export Persona) writes data?

Does it save each time I change the document (and an entry gets created in the History)? Does it overwrite each time the application loses focus?

As I am using an SSD, I don't really want to overwrite a file each time I am doing some small changes, resulting in hundreds or thousands of writing processes in a short period of time.


If it depends on the OS: I'm using a Mac running OSX 11.6.


Best wishes and thanks for any help!

Thank you for your answer!

I am not sure if I understand correctly, though.

I have the whole image selected as one slice, because I don't need to export any parts of it.

So that means, for example, it gets saved every time I draw a line (after releasing the mouse button)?

Because in that case I'm probably going to stick with saving manually.


Best wishes,




Alright, it does actually save all the time rather than when losing focus.

I tried to do some work in Photo in window mode and next to it, I opened the folder that it exports the slices to in Finder. The file in Finder gets updated even when focus is only set to Photo.
