On my previous computer and Debian Jessie, Gimp had this menu item in the File menu.

It was extremely important to me. You could track the output file size while adjusting image quality parameters, the file type (it offered JPEG, PNG and GIF), and seeing a preview of the result.

In Debian 9 / Gimp 2.8.18, this item is missing. How do I get it back?


It is actually a separate plugin.

On Ubuntu it is part of the gimp-plugin-registry package. If you want to look for it in your repos/packages the executable name is webexport.

  • Excellent - this package also exists in Debian. – 0__ Apr 4 '17 at 15:26
