Export your images in GIMP’s export

With the release of GIMP 2.8, the ability to save the images in any type you want was removed. Yes, you cannot save your work as .jpg, .png, or .gif.

Instead, GIMP 2.8 introduced the capability to export your work to those types and saving defaults to save your work to GIMP’s native file, xcf.

Export your image by going through File > Export or by shortcut key Shift + Ctrl + E.
