  Scaling, cliping and exporting, best methods?
Posted by: lkubler - 03-12-2018, 05:30 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)


Running GIMP 2.8.10 on Windows 7 for now.  I have been asked to upload pictures of staff in to our email program so that when you send an email, to someone internal to our company, the picture is included so people see who you are.

We are running Exchange 2007 and its requirements for the pictures are 96x96 pixels and under 10KB in size, jpg file.  The pictures I have been given are in the realm of 5000x3864 pixels and 200MB so I need to pare them down.

I tried cropping and then scaling and that seemed to work except when I tried to export it to jpg it said the file size was around 20K.  So I tried to adjust the quality and to get to 10K but that left the subject of the picture unrecognizable.

Any suggestions on how to get there from here?  Is there a better order of operations or some other feature I missed that would help me meet the requirements but keep a reasonable picture?

Thanks in advance,

Photo Import from CorelDraw a file with its objects
Posted by: Herve - 03-12-2018, 04:05 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

Hi everybody 

I'm a new Gimp user, so maybe my question is stupid ... Sorry about it if so  Confused

I have a CorelDraw .cdr file and I would like to import it in Gimp. I also have CorelDraw software (free test edition) so I can export this file in another format if needed. I would like to import the file (more exactly its objects) into Gimp, so I could continue using Gimp to modify the logo. But it seems Gimp can't read .cdr files.

Please could you tell me which filetype I should use to export it from CorelDraw and then import it into Gimp ? Of course, I want to keep most informations about the CorelDraw "objects" (~ like objects and/or layers in Gimp)

If needed, here are the whole list of filetypes that can be used or export with Corel :

Thanks a lot for your help !  Smile

  Google Fonts
Posted by: Espermaschine - 03-12-2018, 09:43 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

Does anybody know of a place where you can download all google fonts but sorted by category in folders ?

I made the greedy mistake to download them all, but obviously they are way too many. Even my font manager almost crashes when i try to view them Smile
Im too lazy to sort them all by myself, but maybe somebody else has ?

Question Star Wars poster
Posted by: MikeA - 03-11-2018, 09:04 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (22)

Hi, I am new to GIMP. How do you make a poster like this with GIMP?

I am not trying to copy the picture itself. I am trying to learn how to insert a picture into a font. i have already drawn the outline of the text with Autocad in vector format. I don't want to copy the Disney font, so I made a font of my own. But how do I continue from there? Or should I use vector programs like Inkscape?

  Lomo Effect for 2.9.9
Posted by: dinasset - 03-11-2018, 01:00 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (6)

I'm playing a bit with 2.9.9 and to train myself I started writing some very small filters.
This one is not ORIGINAL, i.e. has not been invented by me:  I took a couple of two small existing filters (in .scm), combined into just one and ported into python.
The original filters are:
- Alexia Death's script-fu-lomo-effect and Avi Bercovich's script-fu-lomo
Comments, critics, suggestions are welcome.
If someone is interested in the originals I attach here also those.
They are the versions I have in my folders, menu has been modified, they will appear under BestFilters/Photo/Effects (I do not remember the original menu).
My filter will appear under menu="<Image>/Diego/Ancillary2"

So, after I scale image 50% and upload it (bulb--2.png)(attached)to web page the images edges don't seems smooth, more jagged in appearance. How can I reduce the size and keep the smooth edge appearance?
