thanks for bringing that up.

looks like for something like png GIMP is already good at that.
if GIMP can gather all the details on non-lossy files, then it
should in the Export to abc.png case use those settings.

but we also know from a loooooooooong thread here that things are
not that trivial for lossy formats like jpeg. open a jpeg @ 50%
quality, edit and export back. at 50 or at default 85% ?

I could not tell you.

yes, there is an unsaved xcf sitting in that main window.
and we cannot read users minds if they are doing this secondary use case
or a primary one...
