This is absolutely my #1 need. Answers to questions:
- If you only have a thumbnail, would you accept that as the dragged image?
I would keep it simple and export the highest resolution version available. Note that multiple select/drag/drop would be important.
- What about a Preview?
Only if that is the highest available version.
- If you have an original, do you want the original file itself, or do you want the original with metadata and edits baked in?
again, if I am dragging on something with edits, send over the edits. Keep it simple.
- If you want all information baked in, then we’d need to go through the traditional export process which means dragging out of Mylio wouldn’t be an instant, seamless experience… would that be ok?
Yes, that would be fine as long as there is some indication of progress/status.
- If you are okay with dragging out an image that doesn’t have an Original, would you expect to be notified this has happened? It would be difficult to notify you before the dragging has happened in fear of disrupting but also there is concern that not alerting you right away means you could share a lower fidelity image without knowing.
I think it would be nice to be notified, but it is not essential. The ability to drag the highest quality version I have available is enough. Then when I am looking at what I dragged, I can quickly tell in finder what I have,
