When you are done with editing you can still export a final flat copy to JPEG for easy viewing while still keeping your working XCF for backup, later tweaking of your work and even to help you proof that an image is actually yours. For cases where that is not needed just using export is fine. > I bet most often they want to load their JPEG > from their camera, make some edits, color enhancemnts, etc. and SAVE it > back as JPEG. That's all. While there are certainly people who want to do that it's definitely not the target GIMP tries to cater for. As being said already in this thread, GIMP tries to support professional users in a workflow typical for them. And that certainly neither includes roundtrips through a lossy format like JPEG nor writing to original files. So yes, users might have to learn that there are export and overwrite now, but as users of a professional tool it shouldn't be asked too much to invest those few seconds to understand these concepts and remember them. This is not a single click tool but a serious application that you need to invest some of your time in to learn it. I fear there is no easy way out. > Pavel Tobias, not being part of the GIMP team and therefore telling his personal opinion [...]
