Simply select one or several photo files in any catalog of NeoFinder, and open the Context Menu, and select Export Photos to...

NeoFinder will then ask you for the details in the Export Photo Settings window.

Photo Export Settings

First, you specify the destination folder in which NeoFinder will place the exported files. Use the Edit button to select a different folder.

Next, you specify the photo format you wish to use, currently supported are JPEF, TIFF, PNG, HEIC, and even PDF
If the original volume of your photos is not online, NeoFinder will ask you to connect the device or insert the disk, to be able to read the original photo files.

You can select multiple image sizes, for everything different from the original size, NeoFinder will scale the exported file for you.

Some file formats, such as JPG, allow different compression sizes, which you can select next. The higher the quality number, the better the visual quality, but the larger the resulting export file gets.

In the Metadata section, you can ask NeoFinder to keep the original XMP and IPTC metadata of the original file, or use any XMP Preset you may have defined in the
XMP Metadata Presets Editor, or leave all XMP fields empty. Also, you can ask NeoFinder to add the original EXIF data, if you want that.

The Rename section allows you to use a pattern based new file name for the export files, known from the
Multi Renamer tool. Or turn off that option and let NeoFinder use the original file names.

Last, the Watermark section allows you to embed a visual watermark in your exported photos. To edit these Watermark Presets, use the new Watermark Editor.

Watermark Presets

You can define as many presets as you need. Make sure to use good names that will remind you of the purpose of a specific watermark.

Set up the text you wish to use, font, font size, text color, and opacity. And of course, the location where the watermark should appear in your images.

NeoFinder will always show you an example of how your watermark will look like.
