Note: The settings configured in this dialog do not affect Test Visualizer and Image Repository. They always use the PNG format for images.

The settings do not affect images that have already been posted to the test log or that are stored in the Stores | Regions collection.

To call the dialog, click Configure in the Images section of the Project Properties - General Options or Default Project Properties - General Options dialog.

In the dialog, the following options are available:

  • Image format - The format of the saved images. The following formats are supported —
    • BMP

    • JPEG

    • PNG

    • TIFF

    • GIF

    • ICO

    You can use custom image adapters to get support for additional image formats.

Depending on the image format you choose, the following image format settings become available:

  • BMP Format

    • Image color palette - The color depth for image files, which can be —

      • 4 bits (16 colors)

      • 8 bits (256 colors)

      • 16 bits (65536 colors)

      • 24 bits (16777216 colors)

      • 32 bits (16777216 colors)

      • Native (no transformation)

  • JPEG Format

    • Compression quality - The number that determines the degree of loss in the compression process. The minimum, 1, yields the smallest files; the maximum, 100, yields the largest files.

    • Gray Scale - Specifies whether saved images are in color or in grayscale.

  • PNG Format

    • Compression level - Specifies the compression level (0 to 9) with the default value of 4. The minimum, 0, means that the file is uncompressed and has the largest size. Upper compression levels require much time for compressing an image, but the resulting file will be smaller. The maximum, 9, means the slowest compression and the best compressed file size.

    • Interlaced - Specifies whether saved images are interlaced.

  • TIFF Format

    • Compression type - The type of compression used to save images. Possible values are —

      • No compression
