You can right click on it and change the file extension to whatever
you like but it doesn't change the format. If you want to change
formats use an image editor like Gimp.

I don't agree. I can right click on a jpg, png, tif or gif and choose:
'Actions' -> Covert to -> JPEG/PNG/GIF/TIFF.


I have never seen that option in Dolphin. I just looked and it's not
there in mine. Dolphin 4.13.3

I have Dolphin -base apps 4.13.3 in PCLOS. I have the conversion routine. You have to run it on a picture-type file. You can't convert
something that's not a picture into something that is. Right click
on a file with a "graphic" extension, and in the drop-down, select
"Actions" and then you'll see the convert menu.


Not in mine. Clicked on a "png" file. Clicked "Activities". Got "Link To" then "New Activity", "Desktop" and "New Activities" as choices.

Perhaps this could help in 'solving' whatever argument which may be going on here......

In Dolphin you have the option to open a - ANY - file with an "opener" of your choice.

For example, if you have an audio file you have the choice of listening to it via any of the players you may have installed.

And to make your choice, in Dolphin, you right-click on the file name, select PROPERTIES, then select FILE TYPE OPTIONS where you can choose (by MOVING up or down) the application with which you want to listen to that audio file.

Same goes for any other file. So, for a graphics file you make your choice (and you takes your chances :-) ).

From now on, any file will be 'OPENED' with whatever application you have selected as the 'primary' app.

Whether this also applies to how or what CONVERTS a graphic file to a new format I don't know.
