Ok, I got a question about GIMP, I have made an awesome
picture, but I can't save it as a .jpg
It says it needs a plugin, but where can I find it or how do I
save it as jpg?
At least with Gimp 2.8 on a Macbook Pro, you can't actually "save" an image as a jpg (or anything other than a .xcf). You have to go to File->Export and "export" the image to a non-gimp format. I hope the developers can fix this.
PLEASE overcome this shortcoming. I have just discovered GIMP and need to convert hundreds of photos. Exporting them is a lot of extra work. Please fix this for us MAC users.
