  gimpbox for setting single window on 2.6.x gimp versions (Monoventana)
Posted by: Bengurion161016 - 08-12-2017, 03:08 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (1)

Hello people, i´m new to the forum. 

It happened that i wanted the set single window on my gimp without updating it. There seems to be a tool for this called gimpbox, but the official download link is dead and i don´t know where else to find it. 

Could some one in here please provide it to us. Obviously i would accept another solution to what i want as long as it works  Big Grin

I´m setting up a system with a Debian based distro called Trisquel mini.
In Advance.

  clipboard entry not showing in pattern fill
Posted by: Guillaume - 08-11-2017, 11:10 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

My pattern-fill refuses to show the edit/copy item  from the clipboard.  I am doing a  tutorial by Meez "How to put text inside text".  The tutorial doesn't address this "no show" issue.  What to do to make it appear?  I see no deviation from the lesson's steps.

  Gimp Crashes On Startup
Posted by: BrassRaptor - 08-11-2017, 09:04 PM - Forum: Windows - Replies (10)

Hey! This is the first time I've installed Gimp on this computer, and I could really use some help getting it started.

I'm running it on a Windows 7 64-bit OS, and using the latest version of Gimp, v. 2.8.22.
I installed Gimp a few hours ago and tried several solutions I found on the internet (deleting files, renaming files, leaving it alone for a period of time, etc.), but end up with the same crash report whenever I try to start it up for the first time.
It crashes immediately once it reaches the "Updating tag cache" stage.

I can't seem to get passed the initial startup of Gimp, and was wondering if anyone had any solutions...? Or perhaps recommend to me which version I should download, since maybe my OS is a little outdated for the latest version of Gimp...?

  Totally noob, wanted to crop as photoshop but can´t
Posted by: CaLy - 08-11-2017, 12:58 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

My question is: is there a way to crop an image, like in photoshop, where you put the crop size you want, and it crops to that selection?

Source image: http://i.imgur.com/NT7yMLA.jpg  

Photoshop crop: http://imgur.com/BwCLKOS  

Gimp crop: http://imgur.com/c5HYTDh

Why the crop size isnt the same in photoshop and in gimp? And also, is it me or the quality is better in PS than gimp?  I am doing all wrong, right? Thank you for reading this n00b question.

 And have a nice friday, and better weekend in advance!

  how to blend straight edges into background??
Posted by: kshaeblue - 08-11-2017, 06:48 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I'm pasting an image over a background and the image has very blunt straight edges and it doesn't look very good. How can I get these edges to fade more into the background and stand out less?

  inkscape png not opening properly in gimp
Posted by: marbetu - 08-11-2017, 12:47 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I've created an icon in Inkscape (svg saved as a png). However, it's blank when I open it in gimp (png). 
In windows explorer, I can see that the png size is 1 px x 1 px. That's crazy because the svg is 350px  x 400
I suspect this has something to do with layers because I have been clicking and trying out the options. But that just a guess. There must be a setting I've ticked inadvertently. But I just cannot figure it out. Angry
I've attached the svg and the png in case some kind soul would have the courage to have a look.
I've been at this for hours, and it's 2h30 am, so I'm off to my bed. 
This is the 4th icon I've made today and The all came out perfectly. So it's not a compatibility problem between gimp and Inkscape.
Thanks guys

  Convert folder of images to gif in batch mode
Posted by: Neywiny - 08-10-2017, 11:36 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

So I've been able to open all the images as layers and then export as a gif, but only in the gui. Is there a way that batch mode can do this? 

I've looked into it but don't see how to add the parameters to the save file parameters that I need, like frame times. The image names are frame#".png" and don't require any additional correction or optimization, I've looked into it and the frames are just too different for optimization to help.

The place to discuss ofn-tiles (still fairly experimental as this thread is started).

ofn-tiles is available here.

So, you have a layer, ofn-tiles will cut it into X by Y tiles (you give the number of tiles of each direction), and save each tile in a
specified directory. ofn-tiles in accessed via Layer>Save as tiles.

Name of the tiles: the file names of the tiles are obtained by inserting the row and column number of the tile (or its sequence number) in a string that your provide. The place where these numbers are inserted are indicated by names in braces:

  • row0, row1 is the row number of the tile. When using "row0" the first row is 0 and when using "row1" the first row is 1.
  • column0, column1 is the column number of the tile. Ending in 0,1 is same as above
  • tileRC0,tileRC1, tileCR0,tileCR1, is the tile number. Ending in 0,1 is same as above. The *CR has the rows scanned first so tiles 1, 2, 3 are in the first column while the *RC has the columns scanned first, and tiles 1,2,3 are in the first row.
  • the string is the complete name of the file and should have an image format extension (png, gif, jpg...) since it will be used by Gimp to determine how to save the file. The defaults settings for the file type are used.
  • the name pattern is actually a Python format, so modifiers can be used. For instance {row0:03d} will insert the row number on at least three digits, with zeroes added to the left if necessary: "000", "001", "013", "099", "100"
