GIMP won't let me save jpg to xcf
I was cruising along in gimp saving jpg t0 xcf in a folder when suddenly when I clicked "save as" I got the open window listing all the files again and I could not save to xcf. Tried other files, same thing. Shut down the computer and restarted gimp again, same thing.

Thank you. I use 2.6, no plugins at the moment. When I click the file type selector at the bottom of the dialog i.e go from the plus sign to minus. many file types are revealed. starting w/ xcf & then everything else from A-Z.

Thanks. I selected xcf and that worked. However, after I then work on the image and go to save it back to jpg, the blue save icon now appears at the very bottom of the screen, visible , beneath the bottom bar but unreachable. I can't raise the window up enough to access it. Tried shrinking window, but no go. This didn't happed when I saved to xcf.

RE: GIMP won't let me save jpg to xcf
I would if I knew how to do that. Basicly, picture a big window titled Save Image from top to bottom, in 2 parts. The upper part, from L-R, shows Places, Names, and Preview. The lower part , below File Type, is a list of all the file type options, w/ a scroll bar. The blue Save icon is beaneath the translucent bottom bar that has (in Windows) Start, windows Explorer, the big blue Explorer icon, etc. , visible but unusable.

As I was passing I thought I'd mention that to make a screen capture in Gimp click on File, then Create, then Screen Shot. If you need to do a Windows screen capture fire up the Snipping tool, this can be found under Accessories, and click on the window you want to capture.
