    Default Problem with Gimp 2.6.11 OS11.4

    Hoping someone with more knowledge than myself about GIMP
    can help me with an issue. I have a graphic I created by
    cutting some art from an image and pasted into a new image.
    The problem is when I save the image in a format other than
    ..xcf, the original image appears as well as the part I cut
    out, so in effect it is like I did nothing. I have checked
    the layers and there is only one. I have exported as
    an image type that does not support layers, I have flattened
    the image, I have recut and pasted into a new image, I have
    done a copy visible and repasted, all to no avail. Any
    ideas? I used the Pathing tool and Selection from path
    to cut the piece I wanted.

    Since version 2.6, you don't use "save" but "export" to save an image in another format.

    Don't know what to tell you, mine has a save as, then you can set the
    extension type and it will spawn the export dialog.

    Sorry, it's in 2.8. If you use gimp 2.8 some day, you won't use 'save' and 'save as' but 'export to' and 'export' from the file menu.
