  Writing a script to create multiple files
Posted by: harmony - 4 hours ago - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

I am looking for someone who can write a script that:
Runs Quadrilateral symmetry*
Adds a border to the file (from an existing file)
Saves as .xcf with a different name
Exports to .png
Runs Quadrilateral symmetry*
Crops to predefined dimensions
Adds border
Repeats a few times from the "save as" point with different borders and dimensions

*This is from a script created by ofnuts. I can provide a copy of the script to aid in creating the new script.

There is a lot more to the process, but I wanted to make it as brief as possible in order to provide enough information but not to make this post a mile long.

I am not really sure if a script can even be created for what I want to accomplish, but someone way more knowledgable about scripts would know much better.

Thank you,

BTW: I am using Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit (soon to be moving to a machine with Windows 10 Home 64-bit) and the GIMP 2.8

  Layer Mode: Erase
Posted by: QuinB - 08-17-2018, 03:24 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Hi All, 

Did I 'miss the email' about what the Erase layer mode does in Gimp 2.10.4? (I can't see anything in the release notes).
If applied to a layer, everything from that layer downwards is seen only as the chequerboard 'blank image' pattern, alpha channels not withstanding.

If, however, I paint onto the Erase layer with a suitably coloured Erase Colour brush, detail below the layer becomes visible in the areas where the effect applies.

So. Does anybody know how an Erase layer is meant to be used?

All the best,
and thanks for previous assistance,

  I need to make images in CMYK for printing
Posted by: Ropke95 - 08-17-2018, 01:09 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I have made some images in RGB color space but the company where it will be printed works only with CMYK. Now my question is, how can I make images in CMYK in the correct colors? When I convert images from RGB to CMYK the results are not acceptable, the colors are changed too much. How can this be prevented?

  "Darken only" disaster
Posted by: HavingTooMuchFun - 08-17-2018, 08:47 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

"Darken only" seems pretty straightforward, but I have been managing to get the same surreal result every time I do it. 

I’m using a solid-colored second layer to try to bring color into an original image. Instead of this color just appearing in the lighter areas, the ENTIRE IMAGE becomes tinted with that color, and that happens every time, with every image, and no matter what color I use. Here is an an example:

[Image: Screen%20Shot%202018-08-17%20at%201.35.1...tznyou.png]

(No, the pattern hasn’t changed, I just took little samples from a big image and didn’t line them up perfectly.)

I’m not doing anything fancy here; I wouldn’t know how. All I’m doing is creating a new layer, adding the color to it, and using the "Darken only" control. Can someone please tell me what I’m doing wrong? This is making me crazy, LOL!

  Stop automatic window size changes.
Posted by: HueyIroquois - 08-17-2018, 03:44 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

When I load an image into GIMP in single-window mode, sometimes the window changes size. When this happens, the right edge of the window ends up on the secondary monitor. Is there a way to turn this feature off? I had this problem with 2.8, and I still have it with 2.10.

  Ellipse Selection Bug on GIMP 2.10.4 or changed?
Posted by: andresgrad - 08-16-2018, 01:22 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Hi there!

I just moved from 2.8 to 2.10.4 using GIMP on GNU/Linux Xubuntu 18.04.
I have noticed that the Ellipse Selection has changed or it has a bug. I was used to make a ellipse selection on 2.8 and it just selected the ellipse inside, but it does not work like that on 2.10. I have to go to the menu > Select > Everything and then use the ellipse selection to make it work.
Is it a bug or it changed the way we have to use it? May I fix it installing anything?

  Selecting smaller image
Posted by: jediguitar101@yahoo.com - 08-16-2018, 05:17 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

How do you select an entire image without grabbing the whole canvas. I have a small picture that's sitting on a larger canvas. Everything I have the layer selected and try to "select all"...it frames it, but it also includes the canvas as well. Fuzzy select won't work, since I want the entire image there's no negative space.

  Gimp 2.10 under Debian Testing Won't Start
Posted by: jacosis - 08-16-2018, 03:24 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (8)

I am running Gimp 2.10 using a Debian Linux and today it suddenly refused to start. There is no error message issued when I start the program in command line. I tried purging gimp and re-install without any help.

After clicking on gimp or starting it through command line I could actually see a process of gimp. However, I cannot see the user interface being turned on. Does anyone have any suggestion how to solve this?

Hello everyone!
I recently bought a 49 inch tv that I want to rotate images on. Suggested pixel size is 1024x768. However, when I use this size, my pictures don't take up the entire screen and big black bars are on the side. If I do increase the pixels (1200x768) it takes up the entire tv but the image quality diminished substantially.
I would like my images to take up the entire width of the tv. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thank you!!!

  Dead Erase?
Posted by: jediguitar101@yahoo.com - 08-15-2018, 01:44 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

How do you set up an eraser so that whatever the cursor pixels touch is completely removed in one click? I'm constantly having to feather things out to alpha with several clicks...like reverse anti-aliasing.
