i think there is a bug in the Save Map as Image dialog in QGIS3:
the initial values that are set when you open the dialog look OK, also the calculate extent by layer work OK, but when I change the scale it changes the extent to unrealistic values, and when I change the scale back to the initial value it doesn't restore the extent value.
As there are relations between the extent, scale, resolution and image size, I suggest there will be an option to choose which parameter is effected when another parameter is changed.
for instance, when changing the scale, one of the following parameters could be changed accordingly: Image size or resolution or extent. the other parameters should be to be kept fixed.
When I tried to save a large image, I got an error that there isn't enough memory to allocate.
Could we batch process smaller tiles in memory and stream them to disk and this way to overcome the memory limit?
Do not cross post. If you are rather sure that you have found a bug, as I feel in your case, I suggest to write to the
developers list. If there is a chance that you perhaps did something wrong it is good to write to the users list. There are more people there than in the developers list, some user may know the answer for you, your problem may teach something for other users,
and in the ideal world the developers are also reading the users mails.

Yes it did sent it intentionally to this list, but I was wandering if it's more a developer-list or a user-list question.
Did you mean that I should have better post it on both lists or that there is a combined list?
