It would be nice if Mozilla could save images as BMPs, TIFs, PNGs, etc., formats other than the original file's format. We use the Internet often to find pictures for a newspaper we publish, and sometimes JPGs we save do not import properly into Photoshop, so we are forced to use BMPs instead.

Bug 152163 made this same suggestion before this bug report. However, Bug 152163 only deals with bitmaps. Would it be appropriate to mark Bug 152163 as a duplicate considering this bug report covers more areas? Also, I believe the following changes would be appropriate: Hardware -> All OS -> All

I'm not sure if this is the right component: ImageLib decodes GIF, JPEG and PNG images, and provides the decoded data to the compositor for display. See http://www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/imaging-bug-writing.html. Perhaps File Handling or something other fits better.

I still would like to have this feature
I certainly would like to see this functionality.
I don't think we want this. There are plenty of transcoding tools available, and I don't see a compelling reason for having one in the browser that justifies the additional code complexity. Resolving WONTFIX.
