  What's up with the all caps TRUE and FALSE ?
Posted by: ChameleonScales - 10-15-2021, 11:30 PM - Forum: Scripting questions - Replies (2)

In gimpfu, TRUE is not a boolean but an instance:

➤> type(TRUE)
<type 'instance'>

I'm wondering why it was made that way and whether it can have unwanted consequences to use python's boolean "True" instead in commands of this kind:

pdb.gimp_edit_paste(channel, True)

  Side Panels
Posted by: zeuspaul - 10-15-2021, 11:04 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Somehow I messed up my screen layout.  Now I have two side panels on each side of the working area.  Before there was only one column on each side.  It still provides the same functionality but uses extra space limiting my working area.  I prefer the way it was before but can't figure out how to get the display like it  was before.

It somehow happened after installation of my new 32 in IPS monitor and using the 27 as a second monitor.  I don't see how this would change my Gimp display.  I did try to open a new view for the second monitor but so far haven't been able to get something useful.

My concern is the change in layout in Gimp losing working space.

Photo How to equalize collors when sunlight on the face
Posted by: miso - 10-15-2021, 05:31 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)


Can you please help me with the correction of the photo when there is a sun shining on the part of the face.
I have this part of photo when I see to much sun and it making shadow areas. The rest of the face is in shadow so instead of removing the shadow, I would need to remove just this piece of unwanted reflection and make the half of the forehead simliar to the other one.


Do you have idea if this can be corrected or I can just get rid of this photo?

  Brush Editor Options Greyed Out
Posted by: GoRealSlow - 10-14-2021, 01:08 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello! This is my first post here but I'll try to be as clear as possible.

So, I'm running GIMP 2.10.28 and am not able to access the brush editor options. I just updated GIMP yesterday and only just now attempted to edit the brush size. Not sure if this happened from the update or what.

I have tried the following:
- Resetting tool options
- Closing GIMP and restarting my PC
- Closing and reopening the brush editor tab
- Trying out of various brushes.

Maybe there is something really obvious that I'm missing, but I have attached a screen shot of the brush editor.

While the hardness adjustment looks like I might be able to adjust it, I cannot. I also saw another post on a different forum that did not seem to have a resolution, but their screenshot was almost identical in that the amount that Radius, Hardness, and Spacing were greyed out was the same.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions of resolutions...Even if it's that I'm just missing something incredibly obvious.

Well, I guess all I had to do was ask and I figured it out Angry. I believe that I was missing something obvious. I guess the brushes there are presets. What I needed to do was create a new brush, name it, and select it.

If this is at all helpful to anyone, great. But if the admins think it should be deleted, my feelings will not be hurt.

  basic move / selection question
Posted by: hoganapex - 10-13-2021, 07:44 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Just getting started with GIMP, sorry for the newbie question LOL.  I can paste an object and initially move it, scale it, etc.  But when I go back and re-select (rectangular selection) that same area for a move it grabs the object but it also grabs the whole canvas.  How can I keep from selecting / moving the canvas?

Thanks in advance.

  Help - trying to create new palette
Posted by: DebraW - 10-13-2021, 02:41 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I'm trying to create a new palette, but keep getting this error message:

Failed to save data:

You have a writable data folder configured (/Users/debrawilcox/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.10/palettes), but this folder does not exist. Please create the folder or fix your configuration in the Preferences dialog's 'Folders' section.

I called AppleCare, but they said it was a GIMP issue. I tried re-installing GIMP, but am still getting the error. Does anyone know what I should do to correct this?

Thank you

  Create "KITT Scanner" with GIF object
Posted by: Xogroroth - 10-11-2021, 06:12 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)


I am an old man, not used to do much with programs such as Gimp, but I had someone asking me to create a left-right-left-right moving object, using a GIF file with special effect.
How do I do this?

Been looking on Google for nigh the whole darn day, but nowhere I found, how to make a "KITT Scanner" or, if you prefer, Anamorphic Equalizer, according to Wiki (looked this up, as it might be, I could find a tutorial under this name, alas).

I learned, it are 8 leds moving from end to end and back, looping in a "block style" light per light), and this is what was asked.
However, as I an completely nuts, I want to do something odd: I want to make a a smooth moving abstract animation, since I always have been one to make things a tad personal.

I was thinking something in the line of:
, or even:

or similar.

Just no idea how to go, beyond loading the GIF/GIFV into Gimp.

Anyone that can help me, or that can point to a good tut?

Thank you very much:

pretty hard to make Minecraft texture packs with this feature enabled, does anyone know how to disable it?
