Using Blender as an image editor is really good!
Image 2: Selectors to toggle between "slow but final" and "quick but preview" images and paths
Image 3: An output system two quickly toggle & split FX on/off, output files, etc...
That first part, toggling between high-res and low-res images has completely upgraded my workflow
Before this I had two GIMP projects open, one low-res, the other high-res. I'd do colour correction and tweaks on the low-res version, taking notes, and then switch to the high-res and replay my steps, watching my computer churn away slowly applying filters as I added each step
