just two simple questions about GIMP 2.7.4 that I installed on Linux Ubuntu

use Export in order to save an image in jpg format.
Because prior to 2.7, if you edit a XCF, and "save as" JPEG/TIFF/PNG,
the image is deemed saved and you can quit without being told you'll
lose your work (which is the case, think about
layers/selections/paths...). So now "Save/Save as" is restricted to XCF,
and if you want to obtain a JPEG/TIFF/PNG you have to export. I believe
there an exception to this, if the image is loaded from a non-XCF file
you can still "Save" directly to that format.
