To quickly outline today's workflow:
The final output I need is a TIFF with 1-bit indexing, and the source is a JPEG.
1. Open JPEG with GIMP
2. Do some masking, etc.
3. Save as XCF
4. Some more masking, tweaking, etc.
6. Flatten, convert to 1-bit indexed
7. Export TIFF
8. Close image
On 8, I get the warning about discarding changes - which of course I
ignore to keep the info saved in step 5. I need to keep the XCF in
either color or greyscale with extra layers/paths/etc but I also need
to produce a flattened 1-bit image before exporting as TIFF. So I'm
going to see (and ignore) the warning with this sort of project. I
guess I could do a 'Save As' and name it something like
'myproject_flat.xcf' after step 6, but it would be a useless file - I
would never need it.
I'm not arguing either for or against the 2.8 behavior - just pointing
out at least one use case that has (seemingly) slipped through the
Thoughts? No flame wars please :)
