But it does not modify the image I am working on, it converts the image into
a save result that I never see in gimp. Neither will I expect it to alter my
image If I initiate my action with export.

Why would I convert it beforehand? Why would a user need to do a bunch of
actions that serve no purpose, are mostly 100% automatic and even hinder
when I want to follow the export action up with a native save?
