  Is it possible....
Posted by: sallyanne - 9 hours ago - Forum: Windows - Replies (5)

...to install another gimp onto your computer without having to remove the one you already have set up.
I want one that only has the original files in it as well. Can I do it by using a different file name for one or would I need to get a portable.
I use windows 32bit btw.
Just tried to do a custom installation for a new one but it just updated the one I have already.

I want a plain one as well.

  remove alpha channel on export?
Posted by: peekofartertainment - 07-22-2017, 11:49 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I'm running OS 10.6.8, and using GIMP 2.8.16.

In attempting to export a file with a transparency background I get getting the file with a white alpha channel background that I can't delete or clear. Is there any way I can export just the image with a transparent background without the white? The original projects begin with transparency backgrounds and all the layers have transparency alpha channels.

Also, my Eraser works intermittently. I'm having to use selection tools and Edit>Clear instead. This works but can be time-consuming. Any suggestions on fixes?

Thank you so much for your help.

More an exercise with Gimp 2.9.5 than anything else.

A nice Victorian pavilion and bowling green but scaled down from original jpeg to 33%

Used the quote: LoHalo method: when you downscale an image thats less than a half of the original size

To be honest, I can not see any improvement over the old Sinc(Lanczos3) algorithm.

Comes to sharpening before exporting, the new UnSharp mask tool is nice, you can split the screen to compare before and after before applying. Still ended up with gmic-for-2.9 and the sharpen(texture) filter.

  How to extend an Image from side to side softening the hard edge of image
Posted by: Flesh - 07-21-2017, 06:44 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (9)

I use Gimp and Blender to make my Videos, I have an Animation of the Sun Series: 
see https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...fvNkVm3m6c

As you can see from the Image below Original 

[Image: Sun-2013-01168-720.png]

The Corona or Radiating Fire of the Sun has a hard edge on both sides sometime, sometimes they extend up and down, but not much, and the few times this did happen I fixed them by hand, but the side ones do not look good. 

This is a NASA public domain images of the Sun in AIA 193 4096x4096 format, with an Environment image texture of the Stars as background using Blender. 

What I want to do is soften the hard line so it looks more like this:

[Image: Sun-2013-01168-720-Soft.png]

I just did a fast Smudge by hand in GIMP, this was originally a Blender question.

There are over 33,333 images for one Year and I have over 6 years of images that I am working with, that is over 200,000 images, so I can not do this by hand in my lifetime since I am dying of Cancer my time is limited, I am old and have Arthritis as well, so it would be a very painful way to go out, and I might not finish it, so why start, but I wanted to finish this series, and go back and do years before the series started, which is 2010, so people can view the sun over a decade, but the hard edge looks bad, and I know there is a way to fix this, but I am not good enough at blender or Gimp to figure it out, I think I ask once a year, and try to figure out how to fix it, my guess is that I need to write a script that takes the edges of the images and blurs or smudges it side ways in an oval shape, but I know even less about it when it comes to automating edits in gimp, then I do about Blender, not even sure it can be done, no idea how to do that, anyone have any ideas?

I originally did the video in 1080, now I want to render it in 2160, since the originals are larger then the 3840, it should look good at 4k, but I want to fix this issue since it will take a long time to render all these images in Blender.

  Edit path bezier handle in wrong location
Posted by: todf3dfo - 07-20-2017, 09:08 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I'm trying to edit a path in GIMP. When clicking on certain nodes, the bezier handles don't appear to be in the correct location. One of the handles is placed right at the point of the node, making it almost impossible to move the node without moving the handle.
It doesn't happen for all points, just certain ones.


Could this be a bug, or is there some other issue?

Using GIMP 2.8.20

I increased the size of a font to 2600, but the line weight of the font, also increases, is there any way to decrease the font weight without reducing the SIZE?

In the attachment, I need The font in 2, to match the font weight in 1.

Thanks in Advance!!

  Linear Gamma RGB Color Space
Posted by: SomeGuyNamedDavid - 07-19-2017, 11:56 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Blurring or blending between two colors tends to result in colors in the middle that are too dark. In Photoshop, there's a setting called "Blend RGB Colors Using Gamma" which solves this blending issue. In GIMP, I've heard some talk about a similar solution, but have not been able to find clear instructions on how to do it.

This video talks more specifically about what exactly the problem I'm looking to solve is. (The relevant bit starts at 2:17.)

Video Creating layer used ONLY to control final transparency
Posted by: todf3dfo - 07-19-2017, 08:47 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I would like to create a layer which is only used for the final transparency.
The layer's RGB to be completely ignored and have no affect on the final merging of the layers.
This is used to "cutout" parts of the final image.
I already have a layer with a mask which is used for semi-transparency. I would prefer not to touch this layer.

Is it possible to set this up in Gimp?

The screenshot of my current setup.

The DIFF layer is used. The layermask is for semi-transparent areas.
I want the cutout layer to only make certain sections of the final image completely transparent.

Thanks for the help.
