Default Export image settings not saved in Gimp 2.8

Default Export image settings not saved in Gimp 2.8
I recently upgraded my laptops to Fedora 17 and Linux Mint 13, which now come with Gimp 2.8. After discovering that Save and Save as are moved to Export to and Export, I tried saving the default export settings for JPG. I usually set the Quality to 80 and make some other adjustments. However, the defaults always revert back no matter how many times I press the Save Defaults button. Is anyone else having this problem or know of a solution?

Also, is there any way to make Gimp always use the previously selected settings? It seems that even though I set the defaults, with some images I open, edit and attempt to export, it tries to adjust the quality settings again. I just want to always have the defaults I have set for exporting jpg files without having to click an extra button or keyboard shortcut every time I save a file.

my 'save default' and 'load default' doesn't work at all (for 'export image as jpg'). i've seen other people report the same problem. the bug has been fixed (see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=675981 ), but i'm not sure when the fix becomes available.

however, the 'quality settings' (eg Quality = 80) are a different issue. these quality settings are deliberately overwritten (replaced) if the current image has better quality than the current settings. search the various forums and Bugzilla for more details.

Still cannot save jpg export defaults & I am using Gimp 2.8.10 but this problem still exists. I believe it worked in 2.8.8.

What is your operating system?
The creator of this topic had issues under Fedora 17 & linux mint 13

Also, what steps have you tried to export to .jpeg?

1
"File > Export..."
Type the name for the file followed by typing .jpeg at the end
example.jpeg
then click the "export" button

2
"File > Export As..."
Type the name for the file followed by typing .jpeg at the end
example.jpeg
then click the "export" button


Both above methods should bring up the "Export image as JPEG" dialogue window.
Then click "export" once more to make the JPEG.

RE: Default Export image settings not saved in Gimp 2.8
The OP's problem isn't exporting to JPEG, but having Gimp saving the JPEG export options.

Edit: still wondering where these bl**dy settings are saved... because that works for me, but I don't know why...

RE: Default Export image settings not saved in Gimp 2.8
The problem with export defaults not being saved was fixed quite a while back with a GIMP update, not sure which one. I am currently using GIMP 2.8.10 on Fedora 20.

I've been exploring and I think it's in parasiterc:

Code:
With quality set to 99:
(parasite "jpeg-save-defaults" 1 38 "\71\71\56\60\60\60\60\60\60\40\60\56\60\60\60\60\60\60\40\61\40\60\40\62\40\61\40\60\40\60\40\61\40\61\40\61\40\61")

With quality set to 100:
(parasite "jpeg-save-defaults" 1 39 "\61\60\60\56\60\60\60\60\60\60\40\60\56\60\60\60\60\60\60\40\61\40\60\40\60\40\61\40\60\40\60\40\61\40\61\40\61\40\61")

RE: Default Export image settings not saved in Gimp 2.8
Good to know.

So the OP can now check if things change there when he saves the settings, and if it doesn't he can at least either edit the file, or pick one created by someone with a Gimp version that works better.

OS: Windows 7 64 bit. I have been using Gimp since 2.6 & edit my RAW images thru UFRAW with Gimp. I then Export as Jpeg with quality of 85 & try to save as defalut. The next time I try export the quality reverts back t0 80. If I press Load Default nothing changes.

RE: Default Export image settings not saved in Gimp 2.8
OK, something really strange here. Yesterday I started editing a group of ten RAW images & with the export of each on I had to manually set the quality...Load Defaults did not work for any photo. Now I just did another & this time the default quality that I last saved is there. I shut down Gimp & reloaded another RAW image & the saved default is there. Go figure.

My mistake on the export default export save & export as confusion Blush

Maybe it will only save the default jpeg export settings after you export the image with those settings. Then next time you run the jpeg export, BAM, the defaults will work
Still, if it ever acts up again, check the new posts above.


When I apply filters, some of them have a drop-down list with previous settings on a specific date. Kinda like a cache.
