Tip:
find your limits in gimp (pc spec wise)
I have 2GBs of ram, so my limits are around 1000px*1000px
also i shouldnt use the ram-heavy scripts and filters when im getting in the higher range.

If you have Ubuntu (or any linux i think) you can install perl or sumthing and it will auto save along the way.
I have vistan and win 7 so no auto save for me...
im hoping that there will be an autosave feature in gimp before it reaches 3.x.x
Got möp?

It wont... 2.8 will introduce 1window mode and layer groups.
im thinking 2.9 may include it but i hope that 3.0 will have it.. if not i might know enough coding to make my own autosave....
Edit: couldnt a coder just code in:
Code: Select all
autosave ()
   if save == true
      {
         Save
      }
   else
      {
         wait 3000ms
         goto autosave
      }


my phail coding...^

But the basic idea is, if you have saved your document it will automaticly save your progress every nth second... shouldnt be to hard... :P

im sure theres some auto save script for windows, just cant find it.

cant save layers but print screen will copy everything to clipboard then you can paste and save it in anything,

the last resort

thats what the print scrn button is for

Sort of a hacked version of the Perl version of autosave.
