For some time and I lost track exactly when this happened, clicking the Save to Image button in the composer, after asking us for the filename, would pop up another dialog asking for the dpi or the resolution of the image being generated.

It would be nice to be able to set defaults for this, as apart from speeding up the saving process when 99% of the time I am just clicking OK on this dialog. There will be times for selecting a smaller resolution or dpi but as we will not be changing the canvas size for a particular composer very often or at all (I just create a new composer for each different size output I want) it should be viable to have a composer default setting and should this be per composer or global, I think per composer.

Agreed. It could be nice to be able to skip that step. I almost never change the resolution nor the extent when exporting. But sometimes, I just move to do something else after I chose the filename, thinking that the export will be processing and when I come back to QGIS I have this dialog waiting for me doing choice I've already done...
