Changing xcf files to jpg
I finally learned how to combine twom, images into one "new file". I wound up with an xcf file. I need jpg files for what I do. I tried to export the file ( i think that was the term) and it seemed at first to work. I could not find the jpg afgter a mionutes time. It was no available to me.
I need step by step instructions in how tol convert xcf files to jpg.

If you still have your .xcf file

Open in Gimp and use File -> Export

1. Do add the .jpg suffix to the file name, just because M$ hides these from you, does not mean that you can ignore them. Probably you exported to just filename instead of filename.jpg

2. Have a look at which folder is the destination, Windoze uses the dreadful "my something" system. I know scores of windoze users who have lost files, still there but never to be found again.

3. Now when you export you have some options, you might/might-not need to use the Advanced Options depends what you are doing.
