CHAPTER 1 ■ GETTING TO KNOW GIMP Window Management is a tricky section. But it nevertheless can make a big difference in usability, with several key choices: Window Manager Hints for the Toolbox and for other docks controls whether these windows are considered as top-level windows or as transient dialogs. On Windows you may prefer Utility window here, since it reduces the number of entries that show up in your taskbar. Linux users may prefer the extra flexibility that goes with Normal window. Keep above is a compromise between the two.

Once you Save As…, the GIMP considers your entry to be the new name for the image. From then on, you can save and any changes will be saved to the new file name, without overwriting the original file. The file name is visible in the title bar of the image window, so you can check easily to make sure you’re saving to the right file name. There’s one other save option worth noting: Save a Copy…. This works like Save As… in that you can choose a file name different from the one you’re currently using.

Alas, even at 100%, JPEG still loses some data every time you save. Using a setting of 100% will produce a file two or three times larger than a setting of 95%, and the quality won’t be any better. There’s no advantage in using quality settings above 95%. If you want to save without any loss, you’re better off using formats such as PNG or TIFF. Finally, GIMP has some other JPEG settings in the Advanced area of the Save as JPEG dialog (Figure 2-7). Optimize gives you an additional reduction in file size without any further reduction in image quality.
