    Gimp Only Saves as .xcf

    I just finnished making an avatar with GIMP and now I cant save it as jpeg or png. I can hit the drop down menu to select a different file type to save it as and I can select it, but soon as I hit save it changes the extension back to .xcf and than saves it. GRRR! Anyone know why?

    Great. Put a solved tag on the thread if you are sorted out. That is in the thread tools button at the top of the thread.

    The .xcf is the default extension to salve a file in Gimp. With the .xcf file you can modified your picture with any problem (conserve layers, etc) . If you selected .jpg, .png, etc, the file is compress to that format and don't permit to get again the layers, etc.
