It would take too long a message to do justice to your question, but
a quick version goes something like
My agent sends a jpg of the card she plans to mail out, asking me to edit.
I edit, save to jpg becasue tha's what she wants, and it has now
disappeared off my screen.
I open it again to make sure I am satisfied with it, mail it to her.
She mails it back with the changes I've asked for, I review and either make
changes or don't, and
start the circle again (export instead of save as, it disappears, I open it
again for review, etc.)
Here is a sample of what I'm talking about, a postcard announcing an
opening, although I don't know
whether the image will show up on the gimp list.
Also, check the website for Associated Artists of NC, for Muddy River Arts,
for ... well, they all
ask for jpegs (again, I don't know why).
I like to see, to take a final look, at what I send to my agents, to juried
competitions, and to printers
and the owners of art galleries. This new requirement that I keep
exporting and re-opening jpg files
is counterproductive, frustrating, and is an extreme increase in the time
it takes me to do my work.
