Nope, my routine Export tests for Gimp show PPM and PGMs being created as appropriate. You're right that Gimp won't generate PBMs, but I don't think it's an ideal tool for that job anyway. IMHO pnm.c would ideally notice if you said "foo.pgm" for an RGB image, and ask Export to recommend greyscale... but that's a lot of work for a very small gain. So I don't prioritize doing that. > However, saving a grayscale image resulted into a ppm file (with a pgm > suffix). Doesn't here. If you can't figure out what's wrong, try sending me (private mail is fine) an XCF which you think should produce a PGM, and I'll see what it does here. > I think the pnm plug-in should be able to save greyscale as pgm, I don't > care for pbm files. Does in my last check out of Gimp, probably a few days old but hardly out-of-date in PNM plug-in terms. Nick.
