I'm working with 2.8. I just downloaded it today because I need to make a little sprite animation.
The animation works and looks great...in gimp (weird name, btw. gimp. Is it a gimp program because its really f***ing hard to save anything in it? Anyway....)
I'm a little frustrated with this entire thing. Ive read online that you have to first SAVE your project as a GIF file and then export it? But that's impossible because this version of gimp only saves as its native names xcf...etc. So....the export function is useless? Right now when I go to save as, it lets me save it as an xcf or whatever, then thats it. no png or jpeg or gif. Just the useless xcf.
So again my question is; How do you save an animation in gimp so I can put it on a forum or use it as an avatar or whatever?
I just need some pointing in the right direction. I'm not the only one with this problem, but the answer is nowhere to be found on the net.
