I'm having trouble reading the message once the picture is resized, is there any way you can crop the image before saving it? :[

Oh, that's a lot better, thank you ^^
Are you able to click on that first option in the lower box that says GIMP XCF image? You might be able to save it with that extension and try uploading it. (If it lets you save I wouldn't close the window, just in case the program you're uploading the image with doesn't convert the extension type.)
edit: oops, sorry if you've tried this already, just trying to brainstorm a bit

did you literally type in ".png" instead of just selecting to save it as that?

if that doesn't work, try doing 'save as' if you're not

instead of clicking save as, have you tried hitting export instead? for some reason my gimp does this too and i can never use the 'save as' to save poses

I think my friend had this same problem when she updated her GIMP, I'm not sure she ever figured out how to get around it. She uninstalled the latest version and went back to 2.6 I believe it was. I know this won't solve the current issue, but I could find you a link for that version if you would like. Most people that have had experience with both (that I've talked to) prefer the older version and think it's simpler to navigate.
edit again: if Verbeia fixed it then they're a lifesaver but I would still be willing to find the older gimp installation link [:
