Mea culpa... a combination of an older rawstudio release, too many graphic
program windows open, and huge brain fade... (not good for a first post to
a ml)  ;)   ...

it is as you say, except gimp *shows* no extension, just 'untitled-x',
where 'x' appears to be just consecutive incremented integers.

I'm curious, why is there no 'Save' nor 'Save As'?  Rawstudio allows a
fair bit of image modifications, and it seems to me that a user might
like to _save_ (incremental) variations prior to making a decision and
exporting, or just to save current ongoing work when leaving the desk
for an extended period of time, etc.

Along those lines... the instant you use rawstudio to make a change to a
raw image is it no longer a raw image, and rawstudio actually internally
edits and shows an 8-bit tiff, or some other format?

Great program, and thanks for all the hard work.
