This example https://crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/90/how-can-i-add-my-picture-to-my-public-key-using-gnupg got already 3 off-topic close-votes.

Should we send such questions to superuser.com, or do we accept them here?

This is most definitely a developer/theorist-level site about implementation-level issues.

End-users questions asking about using specific applications should be closed as off-topic.

I think these are separate questions. The important one is "Is this on-topic or not?" That question should be asked first without regard to the final destination of the question.

I voted to close the question because it is not about cryptography, but about the use of a tool that happens to be related. (In fact, this could be added to the faq as an example of an off-topic question.)

With respect to closed, off-topic questions, we should approach a superuser mod (via chat on their site, or some other way if necessary) and ask if it might be on-topic for their site ... and if it is, then it can be migrated. See this meta question for an example: we're reaching out to Math to see what they would want from us first, and then that can be used as a reference for future questions (although we'd want their help to keep migration guidelines current).

That one is probably best for superuser. Note it is closed now.
