  Layer opacity shortcut
Posted by: DaveMac - 03-16-2018, 08:20 AM - Forum: Scripting questions - Replies (7)

Hi all,
I've been using Gimp for years on a fairly basic level. Recently I have been doing a lot of image stitching - there's overlap in the individual images so I just bring them in as layers, reduce the top level opacity, match positions, return it to full opacity and merge down. Not difficult but repetitive.
I make a lot of use of keyboard shortcuts ("Accelerators") and the preset "10% more Transparent" is great but I generally need to press it 3 or 4 times to get a useable level of transparency. 
That got me thinking about Gimp's scripting potential, something I've never looked at before - "set active level to 60% opacity" with a single keypress would be so useful for me.
I'm very familiar with html and Office VBA but my first looks at python-fu have me very confused. If I just want this function do I have to create a plug-in and register it then get it to appear in the list of available commands so I can assign a combination of keys? The python console itself is already pretty confusing.
I think I've got something that could maybe do what I want but I can't figure how to run it to see what happens in order to debug. Then again maybe I'm completely off track...

>>> image = gimp.image_list()[0]
>>> active_layer = pdb.gimp_image_get_active_layer(image)
>>> pdb.gimp_layer_set_opacity(active_layer, 60)

Any help with solving this would be greatly appreciated.

  Disaster from duplicating all the frames of a GIF
Posted by: HavingTooMuchFun - 03-16-2018, 07:43 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I had something that I wanted to do with a gif that has only 3 frames, so I though, why not just duplicate each frame, then I'd have a 6-frame gif to work with...  right?  WRONG:

[Image: combine.gif]

I DID unoptimize before doing anything, and the frames all looked perfect. I kept them all as "combine," since that's how they came, BUT, when I optimized at the end, Gimp switched a couple of frames to "replace"...?!! (This was the 2 frames that weren't the copy of the Background frame.)

So, I thought, ok, it wants to do replace, I'll make them ALL replace...:

[Image: replace.gif]

So much for THAT idea, LOL!! I'm clearly missing something important here... I'd sure be grateful if someone could tell me WHAT!

  Removing excess colors from monochromatic color palette
Posted by: officer - 03-16-2018, 12:13 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Basically, I'm looking to remove colors that seem out of place in strokes because of the color difference.

[Image: 19357afb4d.png]

The red arrows here are pointing to random looking colors that seem out of place. Pinkish and greenish, generally. The blue circles are the colors I'm looking to normalize the outlines to. Unfortunately, selecting them with the magic wand is a pain and the color picker no less. The color filters that I then use aren't very accurate as to where I'd like the regular colors to be. I've tried selecting the lines themselves with the magic wand so that I could try to feather the selection and then fill it in with the color I'd like, but there's a very narrow window that I was able to find that kept teetering between selecting a small handful of pixels on the line, and it leaking the selection into other parts of the image. I imagine that there's a much easier way that I'm not aware of.

Solution? Tips?

Thanks for any feedback.

  Modify with Gimp
Posted by: quand - 03-15-2018, 05:46 PM - Forum: Windows - Replies (2)

Hi Guys

under windows 8, I had, right-clicking on a picture file or even on a files set, the possibility to select "Modify with Gimp", at the top of the context menu......

under windows 10, I lost this function, so does someone know how to create it via "regedit", windows register...?

in fact, this function appear again if I set before "always open with Gimp" (jpg files by exemple...)

but I want to keep the possibility to always open jpg files with the "windows viewer" and use Gimp only when I want to work on

Thanks a lot

  How to tell if tif file has an embedded ICC color profile
Posted by: KAE - 03-15-2018, 05:28 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I have a tif file created by a scanner, and I would like to tell whether or not it has an embedded ICC color profile. When I open the file in GIMP, under Image Properties > Color Profile it says 'sRGB builtin, Default RGB working space'.

Does this mean (1) no color profile was embedded in the tif file so GIMP had to use its default, or (2) the sRGB color profile was embedded in the tif file? Or, if this is not a good way to tell, is there another way to tell whether or not the tif file has an embedded color profile?

This script resizes all layers to the canvas size, trying to handle layers groups, alpha-less layers and text layers correctly.

Available at the usual place.

  Recognition of Stylus/Pen S-pen
Posted by: kate - 03-14-2018, 08:48 PM - Forum: Windows - Replies (3)

Hey I'm Kate and I am new here,

I have been using gimp for a while.  I was excited when I got my new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro which has been recommended by several artists that I would get pen support for tilt and pressure.  Apparently the guy that reviewed it got support for several of his old WACOM pens without changing anything (here is the review  http://surfaceproartist.com/blog/2017/8/...-contender ) I am using the stylus which comes with it which is basically a mini S-pen. At first no apps recognized the pen & after a couple days of reading & back and forth with Samsung techs I discovered I needed to install the WinTab Driver.  So that solved my problem in Expresii which now gets both tilt and pressure data but gimp still doesn't even recognize my pen.  I have considered just getting a new pen which might solve my problem.  Would love to here about any experiences anyone might have with that.

I have read everything I can and have gone into the configure extended input devices but I just see the core pointer.  Do I need a separate Wacom driver?

From what I have read this is a pretty common problem so I am not terribly surprised, a bit disapointed though.  Anyway I am willing to put some time & effort into trying to get this to work.  I have a bit of programming experience & am a quick learner.  From what I have read this has something to do with the GTK which I assume is part of the communication system between the computer and the program.  I need someone to point me in the right direction though.  What should I read and what exactly is the problem?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help.
