I was wondering if someone could explain me why blender is not saving images when I save the project?
I know that this is treated as external data and it's not really big deal to save it manually but consider case where you don't know the program well. Normally like in all other programs, when you save a project you expect that it's going to look exact the same when you load it again but in blender you could have a Big surprise especially when you spent few hours on it. And even if you are experienced user you could forget to save it and little mistake can lead to waste much of your time.
I'm aware of this topic Auto save images along with .blend
But I'm asking why is Blender behaving in such way. It don't seem hard to program such thing so it must be a matter of choice which i can't understand but even a simple warning will be very helpfull.
