Hi, this is probably very simple - sorry, I'm a little ignorant, this is all new to me!
I have manipulated an image in Gimp saved it to my computer. I saved it to the desktop, to make it easier for me to find and when I closed Gimp.
It appeared on my desktop as a Gimp logo so I presumed it was saved.
Next I wanted the photo to be inserted into a page of a book. When I open the word document and try to insert the image, it doesn't appear to be there on the desktop? Am I missing something, this works for photos I save from programmes like Picasa or Picnik. Does it need saving in another way? It's so irritating, yet I expect it is a simple solution.
Thanks for your help.
...have just figures out how to open it on Gimp, is the reason why I cannot upload the picture because it is xcf, can I change that format to jpg?
...just had another go...seem to have done it, I changed to xcf into jpg when I went to 'save as'....think I just need a little more patience! Thanks anyhow.
