It's quite natural to hope saving a pic in the format it has been loaded. Load a

Sorry, but that's a really bad argument for Gimp.  After all, much

Please be specific. If I:

- load a JPG in Gimp (2.8.2 Linux ADM64)
- save as XCF
- exit Gimp
- restart Gimp
- open saved XCF
- export as JPG
- run "exiftool -l" on both original and re-saved JPG, redirecting to file
- diff the two Exif file
