Quickly downloading an image preview using Quick Renditions in FotoWeb Pro



Here's how to quickly request a preview of an image asset at a size predefined by the site administrator using FotoWeb Pro. 

How Quick Renditions work

If the site administrator has defined Quick Renditions for an archive, you can request a preview of an image asset at any of the sizes the administrator has predefined. FotoWeb will resize the picture on the fly and deliver it in an overlay window in the browser to allow you to drag it directly to your desktop.

Note that the site admin may have configured watermarking of the downloadable previews.

Downloading a preview

In FotoWeb Pro, select a file and open the Asset Information panel if it's not already open. Press T to open it, then go to the Information tab if it's not already selected.

When you then click on the size you would like to download, FotoWeb creates the preview in the given size on the fly and opens it in an overlay frame. Now simply drag it to your desktop to store it locally.

Tip: If you're planning to use a preview in a presentation or a document you're making, the plugin for Microsoft Office offers greater control and more functionality.
