I am a relatively new user to GIMP. I just wanted to make a small
suggestion for improving documentation.
Currently, the manual says:
The Open… command activates a dialog that lets you load an existing
image from your hard-drive or an external medium. For alternative, and
sometimes more convenient, ways of opening files, see the following
commands (Section 2.5, “Open as Layers…”
I would also like to suggest adding the following:
The Open command can also open an existing GIMP project or a file saved
in .xcf format.
GIMP Image files are normally saved with the .xcf file extension, which
stands for eXperimental Computing Facility.
Several other image editors/viewers can also work with .xcf files.
You may also use the Open Image as layers command to open a GIMP Image file.
I hope that helps
