>Saving to JPEG from Gimp is more like exporting to PDF from OO (that,

the difference is the PDF format is not supposed to be edited any further (even
though there is a plugin for importing PDF, with many limitations, into
openoffice). Png and Jpeg can be imported and exported into Gimp because it's a
tool designed for this.
Btw, Inkscape only has a "save" option, for exporting to pdf, ai, svg etc.
I discovered another strange behavior with this "export" feature in Gimp, let's
suppose I have a big JPG file (let's call it MyPicture.jpg), I want to resample
it and save as PNG format (for a logo for example):
when loading the file into gimp, now I have the name [MyPicture] (imported) at
the top, and MyPicture.jpg in the status line, at the bottom. Then I export it
into png: [MyPicture] is replaced by Untitled (exported). So I know it has been
exported, but I don't get the name in the title bar. BUT the MyPicture.jpg is
still in the status line. Why? Now this file has nothing to do with the
original jpg file. To get the name of the previously exported PNG file, I need
to click in the File menu, and read "export to MyPicture.png". That's not
