I wrote a couple of macros in Guile which help me, so Gimp is
my preferred tool, yes. Say 95% of bitmap editing is done in Gimp. For
vector work, I use Inkscape (which, BTW, has a very convoluted file
file flow).

Options for people who loose Y hours of work by slips of fingers:

-When starting to edit, why not immediately do a Save as xxx.xcf?

-Why not add (to Gimp) the possibility to maintain an autosave copy
 in (.XCF format) each N minutes? And not delete it for X days?

-Why not make the Undo buffer for the last N edited images
persistent for X days? Disk space is generally not an issue.
