  Copy/Paste Layers from one Project to another?
Posted by: Cyrus - 05-16-2018, 05:57 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Noob here. I was wondering if it's possible to take a Layer I have in one project file (.xcf) and drop it into another. Like copy/paste, but with Layers.

Thank you

  Deselect Not Working in 2.10
Posted by: drutgat - 05-16-2018, 02:46 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

I am new to this forum, and look forward to learning a lot here - you all seem to be very knowledgeable.

I have started using GIMP (2.10) in the last few days, resuming my acquaintanceship with graphics software after a break of several years.

All was going well - was practicing cloning, and a few other things - when the deselect command stopped working (when I tried both Select-None, and Shift-Ctrl-A).

I have been working with different layers, or only one layer.

I just read a thread on this forum by Ofnuts  ( Painless Use Of Selection Tools ) in which Ofnuts talks about the advantages of saving changes to channels, so that is useful to know about, but I would like to be able to deselect.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

  Opening an image and viewing preview
Posted by: blockerw - 05-15-2018, 09:35 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

when i first open gimp and then go to "open" and open a file with photos in it and then click on any particular photo i do not get a preview of that photo.  the message is "cannot create preview".  this function worked on my old gimp, but since i down loaded 2.10 this function is not available.  i have windows 10.  i think this problem may have something to do with windows and i have tried to solve the problem through "settings" and "folder" options, but without any luck.  if anyone has a suggestion i would appreciate it.  thanks.

  flatpak gimp 2.10 and darktable
Posted by: frpatte - 05-15-2018, 08:00 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (1)


I installed gimp 2.10 with flatpak because this gimp version is not yet available on my distro.

I want to call darktable to open raw files, but the only plugin appearing in the import images tab is "raw-file-placeholder".

file-darktable is furnished in the plug-ins but no way is given to use it instead of raw-file-placeholder. How can I configure gimp to use the darktable plugin?

Thank You

  2 common errors in this new version. My fault?
Posted by: AxelEurope - 05-14-2018, 11:02 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (3)

Hello everyone,

I've been using Gimp (2.8) for many years and just a week ago I decided to move to the new version 2.10, I like the new design and that there's several tools that have been simplified or compacted into 1. However, I usually have 2 very common and uncomfortable bugs that didn't happen to me with the previous version.

I tried to search Online (in case it was a common problem before version 2.8 or something) for help to solve them but I didn't find anything that could help me to solve them, so I decided to register in the forum and ask for help. I hope it will help me and future users who have the same problem.

  • Enter Location doesn't works.

No matter how many images I try, since I jumped to version 2.10 I can no longer import any images from its URL.

I always end with this error message.

[Image: VqdROK.jpg]

  • Copy + Past an exterior Image doesn't works.
Normally I don't have any problem (in version 2.10) in copying an image (outside of Gimp) with the simple right button > Copy Image and then paste it into Gimp and use it as I need it, this works well until after a while.... After a while if I try to paste an image that I've just finished of copying from the Internet to paste it into Gimp I only get the piece that I copied into Gimp previously. I mean, it paste a snip I made in the Gimp application.

I thought I might need to make sure I had the copied image to be ready into the clipboard, so instead of trying to copy the image directly with the right click, I decided to use a program called Lightshot (very handy for making screenshots by the way) to crop the image, copy it to the clipboard and paste it into Gimp, but I kept pasting only the last piece I'd cut out IN Gimp.

If I try to go to an online image pasting website or even a simple image editing program like Paint right after that, I'd still would work as it should (pasting the image I've just copied or cropped with Lightshot)

The latter is probably the most annoying of the two and I have no idea how to fix it.

  Tablet detection
Posted by: nightbirds - 05-14-2018, 09:21 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Quote:hello. I just bought a new tablet and here's what happened. I opened gimp with it but the option for the tablet was greyed out. It wouldn't use my tablet as the input device. So I restarted gimp several times., I installed the update, still nothing. I deleted the input option for my tablet hoping it would reconnect correctly, but now the tablet option is just gone, even after I uninstalled and reinstalled gimp. What can i do?

  Installation error - Gimp 2.10 - gmic plugin
Posted by: LisaRH72 - 05-14-2018, 06:56 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (3)

I’llI’m Hi. 
Hoping someone can help. 
I’ve been running Gimp 2.8 with no issue & I’m now trying to install 2.10 but on loading up I get the following message

gmic_gimp_qt.exe - entry point not found

The procedure point g_file_test could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\programme files\gimp2\bin\libgmodule-2.0-0.dll

Gimp still opens but I can’t seem to install GMIC at all. 

Any help will be very much appreciated. 

Thank you

  can blurry images made in Inkscape, be fixed in Gimp ?
Posted by: Espermaschine - 05-14-2018, 01:41 PM - Forum: Other graphics software - Replies (9)

I uploaded something new and it looks blurry.

My guess is, its because not all lines are 100% aligned to the pixel grid....

There is an extension in Inkscape called 'Pixel Snap' thats supposed to fix this, but i either get an error for the whole thing or when just trying to align the straight lines, its all messed up afterwards.

Is there a way to fix the png in Gimp ?
I tried a High Pass Filter but this seems to remove all the antialiased pixels and makes the lines jaggy.

Or is this simply a resolution problem ?
