Save File as .ico
Hi

I'm a newbie. I've just installed the Gimp 2.8.0 with Windows 7 after breaking up with Photoshop over crashing issues.

One thing P/s did have going for it, there was a plugin you could install to save any image format as a .ico (Windows icon) file.

Despite what I've done from online tuts etc, I can't get the Gimp to save as a .ico file. (The file types in which to save seem very few).

What can I do?

Thanks

Try appending .ico when naming the file.

In Gimp 2.8 you have to use "File/Export" to export to any file format that doesn't save all your work (this includes ICO, but also JPG/GIF/PNG). "File/Save" is now only for the file formats that save everything (Layers/Masks/Paths) and let you continue your work (XCF and its derivatives).

A-ha. Many thanks both. I have just tried suggestions - export after trying the extension change and gimp telling me to use export. Works a treat.
