unable to save as jpg - "Not A Regular File" error message
I am unable to save an image as a jpg file!!! every time I try, I get the following error: "Not A Regular File"


I can save as png, but not jpg!!! the original format was psd, that error message came up when saving as jpg... when I saved as png, I closed Gimp and reopened the png file, but I STILL get that error message when saving as jpg!!!


Attached File(s) Thumbnail(s)

RE: unable to save as jpg - "Not A Regular File" error message
I can make that error message by trying to save a file with the same name as an existing folder.

i.e. create a folder called "test.jpg" then try to save an image as test.jpg with the resulting error message "Not a regular file"
