3. When done, the files appear (with preview) in the right pane. Select the
icons files you wish to merge. You can use Shift/Ctrl

by specifying filters.

Same Folder, Same Filename - New files will be created in the same folder. The resulting filenames will be the same as the original images. Original files are overwritten.
Create a Subfolder, Same Filename - New files will be created in a subfolder which has the name of the fixed image. The resulting filenames will be the same as the original images.
