[Gimp-user] Gimp-2.8_Save and save as bad behavior

And judging from the number of people (myself included) who are still annoyed about it and asking for it to 
be put back the way it was, the questions and concerns are NOT being answered - unless you call telling 
people to just get used to it because thats how it is now a solution.  

The Gimp development team needs to listen, and listen carefully.  This is a major change, and many people 
don't like it (yes, I know many do as well... but you've split the community, and thats the point I'm 
making).  I have respect for open-source developers, but I also wonder how hard-nosed the developers would be 
if this was a paid application and a bunch of their paying customers started complaining about a divisive 
change.  I hope they're not thinking that because they're not getting paid they can trample over half their 
user-base with impunity.

I humbly ask that the developers please put it back the way it was, or at the very least have a "legacy save" 
option users can activate in the options so people like the original poster, myself and all the others who 
use Gimp regularly and hate this new save work-un-flow option can be happy again.

My not-so-humble 2.5c (tax inclusive)


the 'save and export' behaviour as been discussed at the mailing lists 
during the last months very widely and thoroughly. There's also an 
article about it at 
Please be so kind and check them first. Judging from the amount of 
postings to only this one topic I guess all your questions and concerns 
are answered there.
