The best place to ask programming/development questions, imo. UPDATE: stackoverflow is the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but a great reference for finding answers.

[SOLVED] gimp mac can't export png - saving failed, error while saving, could not save image

i installed gimp on mac and tried exporting an image to png, but got this error:
Saving '/Users/me/Documents/nick-cv-img2.png' failed:

Error while saving '/Users/me/Documents/nick-cv-img2.png'. Could not save image.

the solution was simple:

Menu > Image > Mode > Convert to Color Profile ...

Then just click "Convert" to convert it to "RGB workspace (sRGB built-in)"

Now exporting to PNG just works flawlessly.
