Hi,


Once I import a raw file, I'd suggest to add a button allowing the user to close the edited raw file WITHOUT saving it to the pixelmator library.

I oftentimes import raw files just to see how the actual raw file looks like, I play around with adjustments and then quickly decide that I don't want to keep it.

But after playing around with my imported images it quickly adds up and fills my pixelmator libary and my iPad storage and I find it time consuming to delete them again since no batch processing is available and I can't select several images at once and delete them.

+1 I think this would be a useful feature. I too would often prefer not to save the pixelmator .photos file.

I also agree. This would actually mirror the file opening/saving functionality of macOS and that seems sensible. Though I think that for Files-based apps, there isn't an option to work this way by default so we'd basically need to do some light hacking. And that can always introduce issues. In any case, we'll keep this in mind!

So, in the meantime, is the solution to just go in manually and clean out the files we don’t want…?

Thanks,

Right now, you'd have to delete files manually. Though if they're all in the same folder, you can delete multiple files at once pretty easily. You can tap the Select button in the top right of the Browse view and either tap photos one by one or swipe across several rows of files to select them. Once you've selected them, tap the Delete button in the bottom right.

Hope that helps!
