|Summary||0011117: Convert embeded graphics to files|
|Description||Feature request : |
ability to batch-export embeded inline graphics to outside graphics (basicaly : all of them ; or optionnaly just a selection).
This could be done basicaly for all of them as an option of "Prepare document and collect for output" since it allready gather all images in same folder.
Or it could be done as a command in the image manager dialog : after having selected a bunch of images, apply "convert from inline to independant file" button. (But as for now, this dialog only enables single image selections)
Or it could be an option in the file menu : "export embeded images as files"
|Tags||No tags attached.|
please, not in the collect for output dialog.
imo ok in the images manager.
rather not in a specific menu entry.
the best is probably to have it as a script, since this feature is only need by few people and (mostly) not that often... (personally, i would already have needed it...)
this means that the command should be exposed to the scripter...
There is a script now : https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-script-collection/tree/master/extract-embedded-images
It would be nice to have that feature in scribus itself though since it's part of core functions : images ins and outs.
imo, exposing the command to the scripter is more than enough...
and it's probably trivial do add.
i would only expose this feature if scribus can in most cases keep the original filename for the embedded images.
my script is mostly useful if you cannot open the document anymore because of the size of the file.
After importing several PDF pages, my SLA document is now >100Mo heavy because of all the now inlined images.
It takes a long time to save the document and overall scribus feels fragile : with these 100Mo of image data, I fear it might crash or corrupt the SLA at any moment.
I fear it wouldnt be possible to open it on a less powerfull machine.
In this bulky state, this document can not be shared to anybody nor used in a lasting way.
When this "export inlined images" feature would be proposed,
i guess the SLA would be a dozen of ko and the images folder a couple of Mo.
The SLA document would be rock-solid AND editing it would be done in a breeze.
The linked python script worked fine to do the job.
But i confirm : this "export inlined images as files" feature would realy be usefull !
