  Scissors select tool
Posted by: gimp-artist - 05-17-2018, 02:20 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (7)

This attachment is from the gimp doc. I don't understand this shift modifier for scissors select tool.
The shift modifier is working as "+" what I know of. What should I know more?

  Launcher for gimp
Posted by: gimp-artist - 05-17-2018, 12:00 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (9)

I have a launcher icon for gimp for my ubuntu system. One day I used script-fu windows in gimp. Then the launcher icon was overlapped together. That's all fine.

After the first use of script-fu windows in gimp, there is no turning back to normal gimp launcher icon. It indicates "script-fu" not gimp itself. So when I click the launcher gimp won't start, of course I restarted my pc.

I registered a new gimp launcher, but it doesn't resolve the issue.
What should I do to fix this unusual issue?

  Gimp 2.10 cannot export work to png or jpg
Posted by: Einston - 05-17-2018, 08:43 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (1)

Hallo everyone

I installed GIMP 2.10 yesterday and it looks great. But..

1) I cannot export my work to either jpg or png formats. (Have not tried other formats) When you click the export button nothing happens. The little dialogue that would normally pop up in 2.8 where you can select your export settings for png for example just never pops up. 

2) I get an error during program startup to this effect.. gmic_gimp.exe - Entry point not found. The procedure entry point basic_string_char_traits_find_first could not be located in the dynamic link library c:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\libexiv2.dll. I just ok the error and the program starts up.

3a) I noticed a few small things that seem to me to be not right. For example: The eraser tool does not work as expected. The brush does not follow the mouse pointer while the left mouse button is down. Once you release the left mouse button, the erase action takes place. This turns erasing into guesswork. 

3b) On many (if not all) of the tool properties where you can adjust settings for a brush or for a layer etc.. you have an up and down arrow next to the setting that can be used to increase or decrease the setting. These arrows are now single press. If you click and hold down, the value only increase once, it does not increase while the mouse button is down. For example, if you want to change the size of a brush from say 50 to 60 using the arrows, you will have to click the up arrow 10 times. You cant click on the up arrow and hold down the left mouse button and it will continue to go up...

I use Windows 10 Pro 32bit with quad core processor. 
Need to fix point 1.. or go back to 2.8. 

PS: Any way to install both 2.8 and 2.10 at the same time?

  Liquid rescale fix-up for Windows Gimp 2.10
Posted by: rich2005 - 05-17-2018, 08:16 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

Liquid rescale - one of the first 'extras' installed in my linux flatpak.

The windows version is 32 bit and comes as an installer. Hate those installers. This one in particular does not want to install if Gimp 2.8 is not there.

Possible solutions, 
Steal the files from a previous installation.
Use a utility such as uniextractor to unpack the installer.

You do need a Windows Gimp 2.10 that supports 32 bit and the latest (fixed) Gimp package gimp-2.10.0-setup-2.exe works.

As well as the lqr files, a 32 bit intl.dll is needed. I took one from a 32 bit gimp 2.8 installation.

All-in-all, these files go in your Gimp 2.10 profile C:\Users\your-name\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins
gimp-lqr-plugin.exe liblqr-1-0.dll plug_in_lqr_iter.exe intl.dll and if needed batch-gimp-lqr.scm goes in scripts.

Works here: Win10, Gimp 2.10.0 screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/vSfBAm9.jpg

  Color to transparency
Posted by: Christoph_T - 05-16-2018, 02:32 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Hello together,

since some years now I am painting with Gimp 2. (2.8.22 latest).
Mostly I am doing repaints for flightsims like P3D and X-Plane:
X-Plane: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/fo...nt-1238872  
FSX/P3D: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/sh...nting-room

Recently I moved to Gimp 2:10 which has some great new tools.
One thing that I miss however is the tool "color to transparency" which was really great to create nice overlays.
I know that there is the tool color to alpha but sadly it doesn't work as well for me Sad
The new maps are kind of washed out. With blending out the a white tone for example all other colors are also more greynish than with the "color to transparency tool".

I would be very pleased if anybody could help me out to find a workaround to get the same results as with the old tool.
Maybe there the is also a way to get the old tool back to work in 2.10?

Many thanks in advance for any advice,

  DDS plugin for BC7 format

Is there a way to use the "Intel Texture Works Plugin for Photoshop" in Gimp?

I have tried the "Gimp_Ps_plugin_support" , but no results.

  Export Quality
Posted by: uchajk - 05-16-2018, 02:10 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

is there a way to set export quality to .JPG to default value?
I know I can save default then load it, but I would like to minimize amount of clicks/keyboard strokes.
In other words, I would like to have export quality slider set to 70 every time I click export.

First script to use new APIs in Gimp 2.10 (at last, the APi to stroke paths in "line" mode...). More or less a rewritten neon-path.


At the usual place. Enjoy.

  ASCII art (in a very loose sense)
Posted by: rich2005 - 05-16-2018, 11:34 AM - Forum: Other graphics software - Replies (1)

The recent post on editing an ASCII chart made me pull out this old-ish editor, javE 

It will output a gif so you can open in GIMP to refine it Wink

Now, what did I do with that old dot-matrix printer, the sideways program (anyone remember that from spreadsheets) and the stack of fan-fold paper.
