Re: [Gimp-developer] implement save handler troubles

Hi Michael,

I would argue whose answer was more annoying ...

anyway, thank you for your hint, at least something.

Regarding the version, I specified it so that we were sure that I
haven't missed something, but I was almost sure that my problems have
nothing to do with the particular Gimp version. (I mean, perhaps
somebody would know that there used to be a bug which is fixed now.)

So just for those who might have similar problems in the future:

The "save" procedure must not have NULL as "image_type" argument in
"gimp_install_procedure" call. I know that this was quite difficult to
guess without the source code snippet, however if somebody really was
keen to help, he/she would perhaps ask for the relevant code, rather
than answering "Er...why".

The solution of the main problem was to include
GIMP_EXPORT_CAN_HANDLE_LAYERS flag in the "gimp_export_image" call.
Something what I would expect to be an instant answer on the expert
forum like this.

Is this the most comprehensive answer you can give me?

Er... Why?

maybe because gimp 2.8 was released on 3 May 2012 ??  Why not test with

Simply because I don't want to waste 3 or more hours setting up an
environment with Gimp 2.8, and because I don't believe that anything
regarding save handlers has changed from 2.6 to 2.8. So I would like if
anybody can confirm whether it is possible to export multilayer images
or not. Is that so complicated question?

The save&export separation happened during 2.8, and there are a number of export-related changes in the 2.8 
branch as well.

For the exporting, I'd have a look at a plug-in that exports layers as such, for example the PDF plug-in:

For your plug-in to be relevant to most users, it has to work with GIMP 2.8.

Do not annoy the people who can help with your questions, and do not discard their questions.
