Automatic Export During Save !!!
I can't believe you guys changed the way GIMP saves images. I absolutely hate how you have to export before I'm able to pic which file extension I want.

You lost one more person who uses GIMP until fixed like the every other normal editor.

RE: Automatic Export During Save !!!
There is no Gimp developer around here...

This said, thinking about "like the every other normal editor": if you open a document in Word/Excel, can you save it as a PDF? The Gimp developers consider that image formats such as GIF/PNG/JPG are only "final" and are not meant for "work in progress" exactly like PDF vs. DOC/XLS in MS-Office.

This change also avoids this: http://gimpforums.com/thread-urgent-how-...xcf-image.

If your workflow is so simple that this isn't important to you, then you may be better off with simpler software.

There's quite a lot of "hatred" for this change in behaviour: http://www.gimpusers.com/forums/gimp-use...t-behavior
but as ofnuts says, this isn't the best place to express it.
