Along broad lines this workflow is or should be just as supported with export as it is with save, just the command you invoke is slightly different. There's one nag I wish was fixed with export. It should default to input format for imported files. It's buggersome annoying that it defaults to png.
??? Why has this not been fixed? It is crazy to think that everybody wants to go to png.
This is completely nuts! I don't have the skills to contribute a fix for this, but surely somebody can (and should) before the next stable release.
If this process is going to be made a lot more complicated for workflows like ours, then I hope that there will eventually be an optional mechanism to override the save/export process based on input and output file formats.A) it wont be. You can just map Ctrl-s to export, if you dont need to save XCF-s and nothing wil change for you. b) This mechanism already exists. If you save with same parameters all the time write/find a plugin that invokes the save with all the parameters already set. You can just prompt for filename and even manage folders automatically and save without any hassle. If you havent done any scripting but have done programming, it shoudnt take you more than 8 hours to churn out first version, less if you find a good starting sample from google first.
Gee, _only_ 8 hours to get a first version. It would be a _lot_ cheaper to buy Photoshop full version, except that we want to continue moving toward Linux.
The lack of semi-automated macro recording is, in my opinion, the key weakness of Gimp. Recording and testing a macro (say in Photoshop) would take less than 5 minutes.
