Hi Helen, from my understanding you are wanting to keep the original
image (village.xcf) at the original size and resize the .png to a
smaller size to email, without re-opening the image.
You need to have a look at 'Save for Web' as you can save to .png and
resize without altering your original image (village.xcf). Once saved
the .png file will be the smaller size without re-opening and the
vilage.xcf will not be affected.
I now have village.xcf with all layers preserved
I finish the picture, and do two steps:
file > save, and then
file > export
I now have a flattened image named village.png
So I need to scale it, make it small enough to email or upload
But unlike in 2.6, I can’t simply proceed to do that. I have to re-open
Hope this helps ?
