Once you click on Export  > Disk, you can see the regular Mac Finder window, where you can select a folder where you want to save your image, file format and image quality.

There’s also ‘Advanced Settings’ button, which will open Photolemur window with the advanced export options.

Photolemur export: Advanced Settings

Photolemur advanced settings allow you to choose the location where you want to save your photos, rename, resize your images, choose format, quality, and color profile. 

All these setting can be saved as settings presets, the list of which is located on the left side of export window.

There are 2 default presets in Photolemur: ‘WEB JPEG’ and ‘FOR EMAIL’.

If you change any of the settings in the default preset, ‘Save settings’ button will appear on the bottom of the window. If you click on it, your modified settings will be saved as a user preset.

Save to

Under ‘Save to’ section, you can select a folder where you want to save your files. If you want to overwrite your original photo without a warning, checkmark ‘Overwrite without warning’ box.

Note:Your original photo will be overwritten only if the exported image and original image names match.

Naming

Your image’s filename can be modified in different ways. You can add prefix, suffix to your  original filename, change the base and choose your letters to be upper-case or lower-case.

Prefixes, suffixes and base can be modified in the following ways:

NONE

If you select this option under Prefix and Suffix, there will be no prefix or suffix added to your filename. This option can’t be selected under base and is replaced by ‘Filename’ option. If you select ‘Filename’ under base and ‘None’ under Prefix and Suffix, your filename won’t be modified.

FILE NAME

  • If you select FILENAME under Prefix, the prefix identical to your file name will be added.
  • If you select FILENAME under Suffix, the suffix identical to your file name will be added.

e.g. I modify an image named ‘London.jpeg’ and select Prefix > Filename. The exported image name will be ‘London_London.jpeg’. If I also select Suffix > Filename, the image will be saved as ‘London_London_London.jpeg’.

CUSTOM TEXT

Custom text allows you to type the name manually. If you want to modify your image name without adding any prefixes/suffixes, you should select ‘Custom Text’ under Base and type there a new name.

COUNTER

In counter field you need to type a number, which will be added to your image. If you’re exporting more than one photo and type ‘4’ in the counter field under Suffix, your images will be saved as ‘Filename_4.jpeg’, ‘Filename_5.jpeg’, ‘Filename_6.jpeg’ etc. If you select ‘Counter’ under Base, your filename will be replaced by that number.

TIMESTAMP

If you select ‘Timestamp’ under Prefix or Suffix, current date will be added before or after your filename.  If you select it under Base, it will replace your original filename.

‘Letters’ has the following options for you to choose:

  • Leave as it is
