There's a UI loop in there which is nevertheless not very graceful I think. 

The first option in this sequence is the user clicking the choice:

'Quit without saving the image' (or somesuch, I do not want to change language 
just to get the right string that is displayed)

And then, very surprisingly, after the user has made this choice, another 
choice pops up that asks: 'Save image ? yes/no/cancel" (idem).

I find this to be squarly not straight, so to speak.  It is confusing for any 
user to be asked about saving the image when the user has already expressed 
the will of NOT saving the image.  Either remove this option in the first 
place, or remove the additional choice of saving the image.

My two cents.
