Having Quick Export feature is nice to have, you right click it, hover Export and pick the correct preset... HOWEVER.. If you want to rename your files before exporting or giving a propper Sub Folder name you have to go into Export and do everything from there and its such a work flow annoyance. An option would be to ad a "tick-box" like "[ ] Ask me to put custom name on export" for example.

Also, adding "preset option" to sub folder name would be awsome as I'm always putting the date of the shoot infront of the name of the Sub Folder. This could might aswell been automatic by just having "{YYMMDD} - {Custom Name}" and then ticking off that you want to give this the name on Export.

So when you use the export preset from the right click menu a window will appear where you can give your folder and Files a Custom Name

Now I understand that this can be annoying when exporting photos individually. This can be fixed by adding a list of f.ex the 5 last export names visible, so you can just click those instead of having to type everything every time

If it's going to show a dialog, how is it quicker to show that rename dialog instead of just showing the full export dialog? What am I missing?

Hello, for export, you can select the fact of always opening the dialog allowing you to choose / create a new folder where your files will be saved .... These parameters are to be selected in Preferences / Export or in PS Files / Export settings, check or uncheck the right options!
