  Gimp 2.9 force setting?
Posted by: mholder - 10-13-2017, 05:36 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Does anyone know what the brush setting of 'Force' do in Gimp 2.9?

The Gimp docs say 'TO DO,' I guess that means someone still needs to describe it.

The best I can tell is that force means how opaque the transparent pixels will draw, somewhere between the brush and pencil tool, but I don't really know.

  icm color profile embedding in a PSD image
Posted by: Richar_d - 10-13-2017, 01:24 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (2)


I'm trying to embed a icm profile sRGB IEC61966-2.1 into a layered PSD made of PNG images problematically using using python pdb call's in gimpfu v2.6.9.
it seems to always default to sRGB and does not embed the IEC version any idea how to do this
using exiftool and imagemagic convert on a psd results in gimp not being able to read it.

image = pdb.gimp_image_new(width, height, RGB)
pdb.gimp_layer_set_name(layer, name)
pdb.gimp_image_add_layer(image, layer, 0)

pdb.plug_in_icc_profile_apply(image, profile, 0, False)
pdb.plug_in_icc_profile_set( image, profile)
pdb.file_psd_save(image, layer, output, output, 0, 0)

  Want to make necklace look like on the material
Posted by: Pat625 - 10-13-2017, 04:24 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I am trying to make a necklace look like it is really on material and not floating above it.  Drop Shadow does not really do that.  I have tried Bump map and displace map but cannot get it to work.  I do not know what else to try to get the effect.  Does anyone know how I would do that?  Thank you in advance.

  Couldn't get the crop tool to crop
Posted by: SelkieTG - 10-13-2017, 02:34 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I've been trying now for over an hour to crop an image, unsuccessfully.  I have a large image of a single layer. I need to crop 19 pixels from the left and right edges.  I've read https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-getting-unstuck.html and gone through each item carefully there: none apply.
I've drawn my massive selection rectangle which in the selection tool shows as being at position 19, 0 and size 6562x1050.
It looks like "the marching ants".
The layer is not locked.
There is only a single image layer, of an RGB JPEG.
I opened the Crop tool, thinking this put me into crop "mode".
I used rectangle select, and the Mode is Replace.
When I hit Enter, nothing happens; when I double-click the cursor inside the selection, no crop happens: all that happens is during the double click, the "+" of the cursor (with the scalpel icon hovering below and to its right) gets a box with 4 quadrants flashed up around it.
I thought that by selecting the crop tool, and then making a selection, that I activated the crop tool by double clicking inside the selection or hitting enter.
While writing up this question, I hit on the idea of *not* making a selection and instead drawing a rectangle with the crop tool.  Double-clicking inside that worked.  So I used Undo, carefully sized the rectangle created by the crop tool, and then did the double-click.
I still have no idea how you make an area that you've carefully defined by selection, get cropped, but at least I have the result I wanted, albeit two hours after I started.

  compression/quality reduction filter?
Posted by: peanutluvr - 10-12-2017, 05:11 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have an image that has low quality as the result of jpg compression and/or other whatnot.

If I want to paste something else onto that image, what can I do to make the new stuff match the low quality of the bad image?

Is there some filter? Is there a particular pattern for those filters? An extension? An exporting trick?

  Can't use pencil, paintbrush, airbrush, but can use text and fill tools.
Posted by: Dr Gore - 10-09-2017, 03:25 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello, my problems started when I opened a .png file into GIMP. I couldn't use tools like airbrush, pencil, or paintbrush. These also do not show the circle showing where they would be working. I can however use tools like text and the fill tool with seemingly no problem. I do have everything selected and I am drawing within the layer boundaries.

  Anyone Else Having Unresponsive Issues
Posted by: dadada_486 - 10-07-2017, 10:26 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)


I am running Gimp on Mac OS Sierra. However, i'm having quite serios unresponsive issue. Its almost like a crash, where for example you try to export a photo and the buttons become unresponsive and you can do nothing but cancel the window. The only fix is to reload and hop it doesn't occur. Any fixes for this?
