Accidental cropping when saved
Greetings!

My wife keeps having trouble with her image getting cropped when she saves it, at least best I can tell that is what is taking place. It seems to only save the viewed area, while discarding the rest. Or something like that. I don't see a setting for it. Does anyone have any ideas for how to prevent this from happening? Thanks!

If possible, can you post a screenshot of what the image looks before in Gimp & after.
Along with:
- Operating system name & version

- If possible, Method used to save image when it gets cropped (step by step, from the menu, to naming the file) ask you're wife to demonstrate the way she saves the picture so you can see the steps that resulted in the problem

If your photos edges is consistent, you can use a filter called "uncrop" that can extend the image some.
