Save image vs Save image as...

We made a breaking change for saving method of ImageGlass 8.1. "Save image" will override the current viewing image file (if possible) while "Save image as..." will always open Save file dialog. When you work with image data (clipboard), "Save image" works as "Save image as..." feature.
