    taken from Gimp's online documentation...

    "To preserve all the components of your image when you save it — the layers, channels, etc. — use ".xcf" format, which is the GIMP's native format."

    Hope that helps you!

    I did. I am trying to right now save all layers as seperate images so I can use each image for my website.

    any idea how to save each layer as it's own image file not combine all into one image.

    Well, I'm not at home so I can try it myself right now. I'm just reading through this right now...

    I'll post anything else I find though.

    In "layers" just leave the little eye showing on the layer you want, and save it as the file name you want for it. Move to the next layer, unchecking the little eye for the previous, and check the eye for the layer/image you want now, then save it, and move to the next one.

    Thanks it works lol. So there is no other way then that??

    it would suck if you had to make a huge website and you designed it on gimp which would be a pain to save every singal layer.

    Select and Drag a layer to the toolbox.
    Voila. New image from layer.

    Bingo. I just came back from a concert and was thinking about that the whole evening and was eager to see if dragging the layers like that worked. Good job!
