How to Save As JPG in GIMP

GIMP can handle a ton of graphic file formats, but I see a lot of people wondering how to export your artwork as a JPG specifically. In this little tutorial, I’ll show you just how easy it is.

Step 1

Once you have a finished project, you’ll want to head to File > Export As.

Step 2

When the Export Image menu opens, simply change the file extension of the Name to “.jpg” and click Export.

Step 3

After you click Export, you’ll then be prompted with another window that contains some JPEG settings. The only thing you may want to tinker with would be the Quality slider, along with checking Show preview, like I have below. Finally click Export to save as a JPG.
