We don't know exactly what you do ing GIMP during those unsafe workflows.

About 90% of the time I load PNGs or jpegs (100s of them), edit them,
and save them back in the same format - I don't have any necessity for
XCF in these cases.

Sorry but this is simply not verbose enough. How exactly do you edit
them? What kind of chnages do you apply? Tools and filters you use?

We don't know if the sequence of actions you do can only be performed in GIMP.

I'm not sure what this question means.

The question should be understood literally :) Is GIMP the only tool
to get your job done?

We don't know if you need this unsafe workflow all the time or half the time.

I'm not sure what's unsafe.

Losing multiple layers, masks, extra channels etc. is unsafe.

Note that I haven't installed the new Gimp yet.


It certainly is not intuitive.


I wish people used _experience_ for judging things.

Alas, the misconception of intuition isn't going away either.
