Re: [Gimp-user] from the shadows . . .

said Liam R E Quin:

Right, yes. I was thinking more as to the importation of a jpeg, 
improvement of it in GIMP, and exporting as a .png or suchlike, to 
preserve the gradations introduced in GIMP. Which is to say that I'd like 
to set a GIMP default to 32 bits while in GIMP, no matter the bit depth of 
the original image. Does this make sense?
