Facebook - Upload photo edited with GIMP

September 2017

Some users have problems uploading their photos edited with GIMP on Facebook. This may be due to the fact that GIMP saves projects in the XCF format (default), and this format is not supported by Facebook.

The solution simple: convert the picture to the .jpg format.
  • Open the photo in GIMP
  • Click File> Export
  • In the window that opens, select the folder where the photo will be saved and click on Export
