The dialog has just Yes/No buttons, instead it could have something like:
The selected image has been modified. Which version do you want to save?
[ Original ] [ Modified ] [ Cancel ]
Could you please be more specific what dialog you have in mind?

Insert any image into Writer, change something (e.g. make it grayscale). Then open image context menu, "Save...".
Sounds like an overkill to me but up for discussion.

What exactly is overkill? Asking the user which version he wants to save or my dialog change proposal?

Using Writer to modify images is out of scope. Admittedly you may receive a file with content not on your local file system. But then, saving the image is possible and the offer to save different stages is too much, in my opinion. The additional button is the swiss-army-knife we should try to avoid.
But a good question for the design meeting.

Confirmation box showing up before the save dialog after the image has been modified
For clarification, there is a confirmation box that shows up when the image has been modified. I vote for removing the feature and always save the current state. The original can be saved by undoing changes; and those are not stored when the document is saved/reopened.
Tomaz, you added the dialog in patch I1af45e2ed5d3b66dbd80a5f3a71c44530e46baef (26-Mar-2013). Any objection to streamlining the workflow as suggested?
I support Samuels suggestion as the current state is not optimal for normal users. The current yes/no question is not user friendly.

Sounds as making existing functionality better understandable. So I support it without hesitation too :)
Heiko, please change/adjust your opinion in this case. A yes/no question is always bad because the user has to read carefully the complete question to decide. We know that this is not the reality of user reaction and users don't read carefully or don't understand. I also had to read this message twice as I "stumbled" over it at the first time.
Removing the feature and referring to the change history is not useful. What's when the user wants to save the original picture after changing it and saving the file?
Ideally we get rid of the interrupting dialog, see c8/c9 (depends on Tomaz reply). If that's not possible, the suggestion with [ Original ] [ Modified ] [ Cancel ] was popularly accepted.
