Previously Gimp could directly open and save JPEG and PNG-images. Since Ubuntu 12.10 Gimp is upgraded and requires me to save via a "save for web"-dialog. I have several issues with this dialog and consider it a severe regression:
- It does not open the location-dialog in the folder where the "current image" lives. Requiring deep clicking.
- When chaning some details in the image, re-saving it as PNG or JPG requires me to go through all the steps instead of hitting a shortcut
- When opening a JPG, gimp forces me to save the image as xcf; probably so it can retain information; which makes little sense, because the JPG it opened is already lossy (lost information).
Is there a (hidden) setting to revert to the previous situation or to tweak the current one?
Am I doing something wrong? I can hardly beleive that one of the most important usages of Gimp (preparing images for web) has such a severe lack of detailed finishing.
Is there a bug- or issue in the Gimp issuetracker that I am not aware of, which deals with these issues?
