I understand why a path would not be saved with a jpg but I really think Gimp should save the path with a .png image
When you think how large an .xcf file is compared to .png it sure would be convenient if you could save a path in png image.
Then please open a issue and add an example file.
Would this realy be an issue or more a feature request.
Of cause it’s a feature request. But Gimp has only an “issue tracker” and you have to press the button “New Issue” and then select the feature request template.
