Music Help with editing an image like The National album art
Posted by: pter86 - 10-06-2017, 02:56 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)


I was hoping somebody could advise me on how to create a similar effect to the duotone images from the new National album Sleep Well Beast.

I would like to create a similar blue toned image like the one attached. Any advice appreciated.

Thank you [Image: smile.gif]

  clone tool in xubuntu 16.04
Posted by: petter5 - 10-04-2017, 02:49 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

clone tool in xubuntu 16.04

Hi ! My first post to this forum. When using windows, the clone tool works as expected. Using Xubuntu 16.04 - the clone tool does not perform any clone operation after pressing ctrl+click as usual and start to clone - you can see the +is following, but the area to clone does not fill up with the cloned area.

According to google search "xubuntu show mouse position on Control" there could be due to a mouse pointer setting, but really - I have been unable to find any solution to get this to work. Since I prefer Linux 99% over windows, I would appreciate help to get this to work also under Ubuntu.

  Cropping - Custom Crop Guides
Posted by: SpiDeeWebb - 10-04-2017, 07:33 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

Hello All,

Bottom Line Up Front: I want to create a new cropping guide for passports.

I'm having a little trouble with terminology. 

I can't figure out what the heck developers refer to these as.

I'm seeing under the presets they're just referred to simply as 'guide center-line' 'guide rule-of-thirds.'
I thought it'd be a simple matter of loading it up in GCC searching the right term, and playing around with it.

I just can't for the life of me find them to begin with.

Sad Strange Filter Behaviour - Filter GUI not interacting
Posted by: SamPat - 10-03-2017, 07:37 PM - Forum: Installation and usage - Replies (4)

Hey Guys and Gals,

I've got a strange problem I couldn't find the answer to on the internet.

I have a new layer with some text and select that text to treat it with a gaussian blur. But when I select the filter in the filter dropdown menu I cannot interact with the filter GUI. I can't check or uncheck the preview box and interact with the parameters. I even cannot exit the window via the "cancel" button, only by pressing escape.

Restarting my mac or reinstalling GIMP didn't work so now I'm stranded. 

Somebody knows anything?

Kind Regards

  Dark GIMP Theme (Based on Advaita Dark desktop theme)
Posted by: justusr846 - 10-03-2017, 04:05 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (1)

Hey guys,

This is a dark theme based on the Advaita Dark theme for GNOME. I modified the gtkrc file (with a lot of trial and error) and merged files from Advaita and the default 'Dark' theme to get this. It was made with GIMP 2.97, so I'm not sure it works with older versions.


It was made as a standalone because using Advaita Dark as the system theme interferes with other applications, like the browser etc.

Download the theme file here:
.zip   Advaita Dark GIMP Theme.zip (Size: 160.29 KB / Downloads: 18)

How to install (for newbies),

Extract the file to the 'themes' folder within GIMP.

Then open GIMP, Go to Edit --> Preferences --> Themes --> Advaita Dark

There are still a couple of things I noticed that needed fixing, but I haven't figured out how to solve them yet. Like...

This outline that comes around the recently accessed button.

The system theme based outline color around the panels (which I think would be better if it was something dark)

...and to match the color of the ruler to the tab.

Also I don't know if any better dark themes are available.... and all this might be irrelevant.  ^_^


4/10/2017 - Theme file replaced. (Updated the scrollbar)

  How to introduce Title and description to a Photo?
Posted by: silc - 10-03-2017, 03:30 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hi experts,

I'm new in the forum and also in Gimp. I've been following several tutorials and I made some changes to a photo and I think the photo is now better.

I would like to ask how can I give a title, description, keywords and copyright to my photo in Gimp (Metadata)?
I would like to upload my photo to a Stock Photography website, but I'm not seing where I can introduce all these necessary data in Gimp.

Thanks for your help.
