OSX: cannot export to PNG
Hello,

Whenever I click the "Export As" option, and then fill in all the settings like what to name it, and where to put it. Then when I "Export" it just says

"Saving '/Users/LL/Desktop/server-pic.png' failed:

Error while saving '/Users/LL/Desktop/server-pic.png'. Could not save image"
and doesn't let me save it.
Please help!

Thanks

RE: Can't Figure This Out :/
- Try to save the image as XCF (use File/Save) to the same place
- Try to save the image as JPG (use File/Export) to the same place
- Try to save the image as PNG (use File/Export) somewhere else

Depending on the results of these three tests, we can try to guess what your problem is.

RE: OSX: cannot export to PNG
Which version of OSX and Gimp are you using?
Have a look here for a possible solution.
Possibly related to the color profile being set to sRGB...
