  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.

Question Replacing colors including blurs
Posted by: Yutah123 - 03-13-2018, 09:19 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

Operating system: macOS High Sierra, version 10.13.3
GIMP version: GIMP 2.8.22

Hello everyone. I'm trying to replace the white color of the starburst shape above with 6 other colors (the result would be 6 other starbursts in each of the colors). The problem is, I don't know how to replicate the blurring effect on the edges exactly the same way with the other colors, so any help would be appreciated.

The colors I intend to use: Here's what the starburst looks like when zoomed out
The bottom middle one is what I zoomed in on, to be exact, but the 4 other outer ones are copies, so there should be no differences between them. If you're curious as to why there are only 5 (big) starbursts, I intend to copy another starburst, replace it with light mulberry after replacing the white with it, and then shrink it to a size suitable for my purposes; that shouldn't be a problem for me. Anyway, once again any help would be appreciated, thank you.

If you need any more information or even the xcf file itself, feel free to ask me. I can't guarantee an immediate reply, but I'll respond as soon as I can.

  Painting a car questions
Posted by: Statesman - 03-13-2018, 05:08 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (14)

Hello there, I'm new to GIMP and it looks like a fab program, once you have mastered all the intricacies, which I havn't yet. My questions will likely need a long answer, so if I could be pointed to any relevant links pertaining to my questions, it would be greatly appreciated

I work with .DDS files (I think they are single layer) to paint cars for a game, and would like to know if the following can be done with GIMP

Can a vehicles bumpers be "painted" with a chrome/shiney/reflective finish?

I see there are Hex/HTML color codes for flat colors. Can a "metallic finish" look be achieved?

If I wanted to paint a 2 tone car, say the roof/pillars as one color and the rest of the body another color (vinyl roof?), I tried using the bucket fill, but it keeps painting the whole car one color. Can you insert some sort of line on the body, so when you use the bucket fill it only fills a new color up to that line?

Sorry if these are simplistically asked questions  Smile

Thanks  Chris

  script-fu argument/parameter formats
Posted by: dhugg - 03-13-2018, 01:01 AM - Forum: Scripting questions - Replies (2)

i am new to the forum so if i do anything incorrectly please feel free to educate me.    thanks

i am trying to learn how to use script-fu with some of the pre-supplied scripts (using spheredesigner as example). my research resulted in an overload of info on how to write and execute scripts.
i would like to know if there is anywhere i can see the actual "using" of a script that already exists. in the case of spheredesigner, i understand that it requires input of a "run mode" an "image" and a "drawable". i am trying to find an example or information on the format of these arguments. for example how is the image name formatted? would it be the whole name includiong path, a image number, a layer name or a million other possibilities?

i guess iam asking were do i find my options/formatting of the input parameters to an existing script?

thanks in advance, dhugg
