I have written a simple script which will add a command ("Save
selected") to the File Menu. When executed, the current selection will
be saved to a PNG file in the same directory as the file being edited.
The name of the saved selection consists of the original file name
with a sequence count appended ("original_name-1.png" for the first
selection that's saved, "original_name-2.png" for the second, etc). If
the script is executed with no selection, the sequence count is reset
back to "1". The sequence count is also reset back to "1" if the image
The script has been tested with GIMP 2.6.2 and I suspect it should
work with GIMP 2.4 (I doubt it will work with earlier GIMPs). The
script can be downloaded from
