I’ve got a picture on a Mac, that I need to convert so that I can see it on a PC. Does anybody know how to convert an XCF to a JPG? (Only free solutions please! I’m a person of VERY limited means! :) )

I’m going to guess the GIMP as .xcf is it’s native file format.

yup, you could also use seashore, wow, you must be very very limited to not even be able to search for it

it is a seashore file. i’m trying to change it to a publisher or a paint file.

iwamoto's avatar

well, you just open it up in that app. and do a “save as..” or “export”...sounds like 1–2-3 to me really

Yeah, if you can load the image successfully in Seashore, your best bet will indeed be to use seashore to export the file as a jpeg.

i guess you guys were missing the point (completely my fault bc i didn’t construct the question carefully enough): i wanted to convert the file ON A PC. somebody sent me a file from a Mac. I couldn’t open it in seashore bc i was on a PC… o well! sorry for the confusion

iwamoto's avatar

well, then open it with the gimp, that’s universal, also able to run under windows, so yeah, repeat the steps there
