I greatly appreciate the new save/export features of Gimp. It simplifies my
workflow greatly as I often save/export as both jpg and xcf. I realized the
benefits of saving to xcf the hard way and now save important steps as hidden
layers so I can always go back and tweak things. I also export jpgs for
comparisons along the way and now it's all easier.
Yes, it's great for heavy-weight(!) workflows (i.e. "often
saving/exporting as both jpg and xcf", "exporting jpgs for comparisons
along the way", requirement of the possibility to "always go back and
But it is annoying for straightforward light-weight(!) workflows: Open a
JPEG, manipulate it, save it.
I'm a light-weight user (Windows). The most common process I do is:
Drag a BMP image into GIMP.
Crop using fixed aspect ratio - very handy for my purposes.
Exit (close without saving).
I'm not negating the fact that others don't like the new process, but
this is easy for me, and a simple change from the previous process.
So just another "thanks to the developers"!
