That's a great explanation. As obvious as it seems, I didn't think of it, for some reason.

The save dialogs in gimp detect the file type by the extension of the file name automatically. So if you name your file "myfile.xcf" it will be a gimp xcf file, if you name it "myfile.tif" it will be a TIFF file, "myfile.jpg" for JPG....

In your case you can "save as..." with, for example, "myfile.xcf" the first time, then just "save" (because you don't need to give it a new name).

When you are done you just have to:

"save as..." with  "myfile.tif" as file name for the tiff copy.

"save as..." again with "myfile.jpg" as file name for the jpg copy.


As Olivier just said 2.8 version "save" and "save as.." are only for xcf files, but "export..." will detect the file type the same way "save as.." is doing right now.

Because I usually save as the GIMP format until the end, at which point I save to flattened TIFF and JPG formats too.

Why don't you just add the file extension to the filename so gimp detects it automatically?

Is there a way to remove some of the "save as" file formats from the 
list (when saving a file as...)?  After numerous years in my field, 
there are a number of file formats I have - and probably never will - 
need to save my files as.  If I could remove some of them, then it would 
speed up my workflow (so that I don't have to scroll down every time I 
save a file).
