Settings for image export
When I export assets from xd, it generally takes more space. And I can't directly import files from xd to photoshop, so first I have to import into illustrator and then to photoshop and then I can use save for web to optimize my assets.
So please incorporate a feature so that I can directly export assets from xd with compression.

I agree - image optimization needs to be enhanced so we don't need to compress further with other programs. I exported some banner ads from XD. For a test I opened that image in PS and exported for web and saved over 60% of the file size with the same file format and high quality to max. I also use ImageOptim regularly to help optimize again if needed.
Please can someone make this happen. Its such a shlep to export... then upload and download.. file.. repeat..
Need a tinypng plugin
Also - I have to run everything through Tinypng.com to get decent file sizes. Tinypng strips lots of unnecessary code content out and reduces the file down to what is really needed (lossless). Would be helpful for Adobe to look into this.
Files are generally bigger prom XD than they are from Photoshop using the exact same compression levels of a JPG. PNGs have no options to switch to 8bit from 24 bit PNGs and no further options as seen in Photoshop. It's pretty easy to see where XD falls a long way short here. Just open the programs and compare.
I find the export options very limiting and have to use other applications to get the assets to a usable format for many web based scenarios.
There is currently no 8 bit PNG support and the colour options that go with that.
JPG options are limited and the compression is not as good as photoshop.
No Webp export.
No SVG options.
No Gif support. (still waiting for animated Gifs to work)
Would be nice to specify that I only want and @2x copy or @3x specifically rather than have to keep deleting the 1x version etc.
XD is my favourite adobe app but it still falls short on the above.
This is missing:
1. convert image in sRGB, Adobe RGB, ECI … with a preview like in PS!!!
2. correct color after exporting (in XD the color and effects looks different to the exported PNG!!!)
3. embed color profiles!!!
4. change size (from 1024x768 to 1080x810px for example)
5. PNG: transparent background or not
