  Layers question from newbie
Posted by: lpvmc - 06-10-2017, 07:09 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)


In this post (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrVnI3l9fgE), the instructor can move the content of a layer around by clicking the layer, the object on that layer is automatically selected and he can do whatever he wants to with the object: move it, change the size etc.

When I select a layer the object is NOT selected automatically; it is even impossible to select it in whatever way. To move the object around I have to move the whole layer. Furthermore if I want to resize an object, I have to change the scale of the layer, since I cannot select the object itself.

Am I doing something wrong or is this the way things are done in GIMP (2.8.22)

Looking forward to any comments and/or tips.

Kindest regards, Leo.

I wanted to try using plug_in_qbist inside a filter (i.e. try to use it non-interactively)
I did some tests, but without success.
The statement pdb.plug_in_qbist (inImage, inLayer) returns an error (RuntimeError: calling error).
I'm using Windows 10, Gimp 2.8.22. 
Did someone make use of it? (or can just test now if it works?)
Thanks a lot

  change the default export setting of untitled.png
Posted by: Ezz9 - 06-09-2017, 04:42 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I'm hoping this will be easy, but I can't find the info searching the web. So here I am, now on this one.

I would like to change the default export setting of "Untitled.png" to "cover.jpg" and have it export on my desktop.

I clean a lot of album covers for various websites and my music files. This is my go-to name for the covers. From there I move them to the file they belong in. The file name is the info for the cover. So having the same name on the image is not a problem and a must because my music player is set for cover.jpg as a default to pick that cover in the file. It would be nice to have it set at the startup instead of always having to change the first one every time and sometimes forgetting and having a no show named image to get in.

Please KISS "keep is simple stupid"
I'm really not to computer savvy and can get lost in the computer lingo. 

Thank you.

  Convert some Photoshop resources (GDR and PAT files) to GIMP's
Posted by: celiapgt - 06-07-2017, 11:01 PM - Forum: Tutorials and tips - Replies (6)

I usually find tons of resources for Photoshop (PS), like gradients (GDR) and patterns (PAT) on the many sites devoted to graphical illustration. I'm not having fun being unable to use GDR or PAT files into GIMP. So I searched for a way to either convert them automagically online or using a command-line tool on my terminal.

To my surprise, I finally could manage to get the resource to be used in GIMP:

For GDR Photoshop gradients, go to http://soliton.vm.bytemark.co.uk/pub/cpt...elect.html and upload your GDR file, tick the "convert all gradients in input (result is zipped)" box, set the selectors for input and output accordingly, and hit "Convert". Voilá!

For PAT Photoshop patterns, you need a terminal to follow some steps:

  1. Make sure that libgimp2.0 and libgimp2.0-dev are installed
  2. Download (from registry.gimp.org) the text file ps-pat-load_1.c to /tmp (or somewhere else)
  3. Run the command 
    /tmp$ gimptool-2.0 --install ps-pat-load_1.c
  4. Restart GIMP
  5. Open the Photoshop .pat file. You will see each pattern contained in the file as a different layer.
  6. Select the layer-pattern you are interested in, save it as a new image with .pat extension on your user's directory ~/.gimp-2.8/patterns, and don't forget to include an appropiate description
  7. Refresh the Patterns tab
Now you can see it in the Patterns tab.

I'm using Ubuntu 17.04

  Gimp Animation
Posted by: CrazyDaze - 06-06-2017, 05:18 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi all, new member here.

I wanted to ask, are there any decent Gimp animation tutorials out there?  Any that go through the whole GAP package step by step?  YouTube has lots of 'how to do a particular effect', but I can't seem to find anything that takes you step by step, explaining all the features.  I'm finding in general that Gimp tutorials tend to be pretty poor.  You're told to 'do this, then do that, then tick that' without hardly any information on WHY you're doing it!

I'd be happy to pay for an online course if anything is out there.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

  3 Versions Gimp on one computer
Posted by: Pat625 - 06-06-2017, 04:58 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I have 2 different portable versions and one standard on my computer.  Only using one currently.  Want to use all of them at different times as some programs work on one but not the other.  Do they all need separated in different directories?

Also, I have the Add on Manager.  Can I set it somehow that it will work on all 3 rather than having to duplicate everything for each version?  The file is quite large with a lot of scripts, programs, etc.

Thank you for your help.
