Feature request #3436
Default settings for image output

QGIS' main basic image output is using the TIFF format in its lowest form which has a negative impact on performance and user experience.
For example, these gdal options could be used by default as they maximize the compatibility with other GIS tools while still using helpful functionalities :
Any user-defined options should override these options so this solution would be beneficial to the advanced user and the beginner. A similar politic could be used for the pyramids.

The attached patch adds the possibility to insert image creation options in the option dialog under 'maptools' (this is probably not the best place). The options are considered in the raster calculator and in the raster terrain analysis plugin.

yes, correct, the box is about the -co options. The outputformat can be chosen directly in the dialog of the raster tool. At least this is the case for raster calculator and raster terrain plugin. From a quick look on some of the GDAL raster tools, there is also the option to select the format in the save dialog.
