Hi, I'm trying to batch process with this plugin too. Has anyone had success with it? Thanks!

Here is the Swedish (sv) translation for Save for web

First of all, great plug-in!

Anyway, I used to use Macromedia Fireworks and missed some features for web optimisation that it has. So I was wondering if you could implement it on your plug-in. Here're the features:

  1. Batch processing for multiple files to be saved for web.
  2. Transparency options: No Transparency, Index Transparency, & Alpha Transparency.
  3. Matte colour for the Transparency option.

It would be great if we could have these options.

Thanks for the plug-in, though!

Just incase anyone got here from a search for "matte colour photoshop gif transparency", the matte option for blending partially transparent pixels with another colour to greate a gif with transparency that sits nicely on a coloured background, rather than the jagged edge of white non antialiased pixels.

The plugin for this job is available from the menu (gimp 2.6)

-Chose the background colour for this in the toolbox (foreground/background colour choice).

One thing to note is that this filter (as with other filters) applies to the selected layer, so you will have to blend layers down (right-click), or apply the filter to each layer.

Yes. indeed, this plug-in is very much useful. Thank you so much.

Does this plugin work with the latest (2.6.0) gimp?

it's working for me

Very useful . Since allowing more and reduce the load time for large quantities . For both PPC and Intel. I have yet to try either.

Tried the PPC version with Gimp 2.4.7 on Mac OS 10.4. Works perfectly.
