Basically, you can export all the data you can search from easydb.

Exports are first created in easydb and then executed. After execution, the data is provided for downloading or copied to another server via a transport path (optionally, for example, RSYNC, FTP). The exports are performed asynchronously on the easydb server, since these processes are Much time.

NOTE: Exports can be scheduled with schedules (see below) and then periodically executed by easydb. Thus, for example, Make regular backups of your easydb or perform scheduled data expansions.

Within an export process, you can calculate files of different sizes, export sections from images, and specify a format for export.

Exports can be created via various ways from the easydb:

![Create Export](export einfach_en.png)

In the upper part of the dialog you can define which files are exported. In the lower part, you specify which data are exported. Records are exported with data as CSV or XML separately from the actual files. If desired, you can also export links to the files in the data.

After the settings, click Export … to create and start the export.

Before the export starts, a message dialog appears in which a name can be entered. For exports with schedules, you must assign a name. For exports without schedules, the name is optional.

![Export…](export name festlegen_en.png)

Then click on Save to start the export final.


Here, you select which files you want to export for each object type and field. The name of the file type is displayed after the field name. These numbers only include the preferred versions of the files.

Data Types

Here you decide for each datatype whether the files of this type are considered for the export or not. In addition, the file type can be used to determine which version of the file is to be exported and whether or not there is a size or format adjustment during the export.

The following settings can be made:

General Settings

Setting Declaration
Original No No original file is exported.
Original Only the original will be exported.
Actual Original This is the preferred visible version of the file. For example, if you rotated or cropped an image, this version is called Current Version, the unaltered image is called Original. For files that have not been rotated or otherwise modified in the easydb, Current Version and Original are the same
Original + Current version It will be Original and Current original
Variant No No further variant of the file to be exported is calculated for the export.
Pre-calculated variant Here you see a list of pre-calculated variants. Which variants appear here is part of the System Administration Configuration. Depending on the data type, these variants are different. You can select from the list, which variant / size should be exported in addition to the original and / or the current original
Metadata profile The profile used for XML / EXIF ​​/ IPTC writing. Available for the file types Image, Audio, Video
Your own variant For some file types, this setting is available. Depending on the type of file, you can customize the export format
Watermark If set, a watermark is added to the file (only for images). The watermark is set at Pool. Only pictures in a pool can be provided with a watermark. Only available for file type Image
- Unchanged - The file gets the metadata of the original version
- Default - The profile of the pool or object type settings is used here
- Remove - The file is exported without metadata.
<Profile> Specify a profile used for export

Format options for images

Setting Declaration
Format Unchanged The format of the selected version is retained.
JPEG JPEG format with indication of quality Low, Medium, High, Maximum
Color Space RGB RGB color space
Grayscale Grayscale
Size Default sizes The list of preset sizes is displayed.
Own … Select this setting to set your own size
Measure long side The dimension is long, for example, 400 pixels and a 800 x 600 large image, the image will be 400 x 300 pixels
short side The pixel specification refers to the short page. For example, 400 pixels and a 800 x 600 large image, the image will be 600 x 400 pixels
Width The pixel value refers to the width of the generated image.
Height The pixel value refers to the height of the generated image.
Pixels Number of pixels for the dimension specification. Note that DPI can not specify DPI for the calculation of dimensions / measures during export. In order to calculate DPI, the target print format must be known. This will then inevitably be converted into pixels again

Format options for videos

No format changes are supported for videos. You can access the pre-produced formats and format conversion using an external program.

Format options for audio
