  RE: Wacom tablet with Gimp?
Posted by: Nateart - 04-06-2017, 04:14 PM - Forum: Other graphics software - No Replies

Inspired by frustration with trying to get Gimp to shake hands with my Wacom Intuos 3 pen tablet, I went searching for another software that would accomplish my simple goals without so much monkey business.

I discovered a possible interesting solution that I'm trying called SAI (http://www.systemax.jp/en/)
Gimp does a lot of cool stuff, but my simple desire to draw an ink line that shifted in thickness based on the stylus pressure seemed to be an insurmountable task, not to mention all the hoop-jumping just to get Wacom and Gimp to talk

SAI immediately made friends with Wacom, including the simple line drawing feature I was after. It also handles most if not all of the features that Gimp does.

It's not totally free, but the price (around $70 I think) is a far cry from having to rent Photoshop or Painter (idiotic concept)

Herewith, a simple quick sketch demonstrating the line feature. This incorporated layers, saves in native file format as well as Photoshop and the usuals (this is a jpg)

My machine is a Mac running OS Sierra all up to date, I use Gimp 2.6.18 for Mac. I am not a computer guy. I am trying to open a texture.file to manipulate it. I have the plugin (gimp-dds-2.0.2) but the installation file does not make sense to me.

1. Type 'make' to build the plugin
2. Type 'make install' to install the plugin. By default the plugin will be
installed in your GIMP user plugin directory ($HOME/.gimp-2.2/plug-ins).  If
you want to install the plugin system-wide, as root you must manually copy the
plugin to the system GIMP plugin directory.

I don't know where to start. Thanks funnnyfarm

  Travels with my Wacom
Posted by: rich2005 - 04-06-2017, 02:13 PM - Forum: Tutorials and tips - No Replies

Difficult to put a category on this. Maybe a tip for users of old graphics tablets.

This is my Wacom Volito from around 2006 - 11 years old but still works in my regular linux installation. Does it work in Windows10? Yes - with lots of reservations.


Here is the epic - Travels With My Wacom - duration 5 min 40 secs.

  don't .xcf save parasite information?
Posted by: trandoductin - 04-06-2017, 05:10 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I tried setting image parasite
using this in one script

parasite = gimp.Parasite("gimp-comment",0,comments)
and this in another script

comment = image.parasite_find("gimp-comment")
Everything seems to work okay as long as i have the .xcf opened.
If i close the .xcf after first script
and reopen .xcf the 2nd script fails getting parasite.
But when i tested exporting as .jpg
then the 2nd script would work
It seems as though parasite is not being saved when you save .xcf but does save if you export to .jpg.

Any ideas? on how to make it work for .xcf as well?

  Text on mouseover of hyperlinks not working
Posted by: BonnieD - 04-05-2017, 07:31 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I loaded my image/image map onto a webpage (a sharepoint wiki page). I was hoping that the text I added in the mouse-over box in the GIMP image map tool would appear in a small pop-out when someone moused over any of the hyperlinks that I have mapped in the image.  This is currently not working.  What am I missing?

Question How to change resolution w/out changing size?
Posted by: drpeppercan - 04-05-2017, 03:53 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi all,

I just want to decrease the resolution of my image. The problem is that every time I try it also affects the image's size.
I go to the Image menu, then Scale image.

Thanks guys,

  smooth out colours
Posted by: tekett - 04-05-2017, 05:21 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (8)

the colours transitions looks like a staircase or height curves on a map. how would i go about to smooth out the colours? http://prnt.sc/eslewq i just want this to be a smooth transition. if there is no automated function or script or whatever i dont care, il do it manually then with one of the brush tools. the image im working with is quite huge its 8160*26144, so the picture in the link is like 1000*1000 pixels of my image, so i have allot of pixels to work with so i can use as much different colours as the program can handle in order to smooth it out.

Photo Wacom tablet with Gimp?
Posted by: Nateart - 04-04-2017, 06:55 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I have succeeded in getting my Wacom intuous 3 6x8 pen tablet installed into Windows 10
Is this functional in Gimp?... like varying line width by pressure applied?
If so, how do I set it up in Gimp?

I've done illustration for books, magazines, puzzles etc. since 1970... take a look if you like =
