  Image Scaling Interpolation options
Posted by: fotofill1969 - 6 hours ago - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (1)

1) Using Gimp 2.10.2  2) Mint 18.3
With Gimp 2.8 I had the option of selecting "Sinc Lanczos2" as the interpolation policy under "Image/Scale Image."
With Gimp 2.10 the options are "None," "Linear," Cubic," "NoHalo," and "LoHalo."  "Sinc (Lanczos3)" as recommended on the Gimp website is not offered as an option. I have been using "NoHalo" which seems to be OK, but I'd feel more comfortable using the Sinc (Lanczos3) because of the recommendation. Is there a way to install that profile or policy?

  Color change like night mode
Posted by: Defacta - Yesterday, 08:51 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)


I am stuck on a particular problem. I am under Windows and on night I use SunsetScreen to switch my screen to the night mode.

And I have images that I prefer when this tool is running (with default values (Sunset colour (K) 4100)  but I can't reproduce this color change on Gimp.

I know the default tool of Gimp: Colors -> Color Temperature but I just can't reproduce the same result of the tool Sunset colour. Or the same result of my iPhone night mode.

Would you have an idea?

Thanks for any help,

  Disable Flip & Rotate?
Posted by: cbh1388 - Yesterday, 08:09 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

I was wondering if there's any way to disable Flip & Rotate or at the very least unmap it from shift + middle mouse button drag? I don't see it anywhere in Keyboard Shortcuts or Input Controllers.

I'm using Gimp 2.10.2 on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

  Creating a rectangle with text, laid on a map
Posted by: Bill Brookshire - 06-20-2018, 09:50 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Thanks for any help. I start with opening a map, with which I'm trying to create a rectangle, with a red border, and place text on the inside of it. I've read, and watched several tutorials. I've taken notes. I still don't understand how to do this.

  very few file type export options
Posted by: coyote - 06-20-2018, 09:36 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

Since upgrading to Gimp 2.10.2 on both my computers, I'm confused by my "Export As" window.  

How do I choose a file tyle extension?  The + sign to the left of "Select File Type" seems to do nothing.  

When I click the "All export images" button I get very few options:

[Image: Gimp_File_Types20_06_20.jpg]

Then when I click the Export button usually nothing happens (whether or not I leave the extension unchanged in the Name field; in other words if I manually change it to PDF from the pre-loaded PNG extension); occasionally I do get the next window to confirm export options.

Ack! I hope this is fixable, or I'll need to downgrade to an older version.

  scanner not recognized by 2.10
Posted by: coyote - 06-20-2018, 09:02 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

My scanner no longer appears in the
File|Create...|Scanner/Camera|Select Source 
window on one of my computers (32bitWin8.1Pro).  

It does appear on my other (32bitWin7Pro) computer.

Gimp 2.10.2 is on both computers.
The scanner appeared before I upgraded Gimp to a recent version.  The scanner is an all-in-one and it prints so I know both my OS' recognize it.

Bug [bug] Gimp freezes & crashes when I do, well, anything.
Posted by: tilts - 06-18-2018, 08:09 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Recently, I've been having troubles with GIMP.
I've used the program for upwards of about 1-2 years now, and this issue just appeared.
To start, I run Windows 10 (and have since it came out). I used the 2nd newest major version of gimp (white theme by default) but just recently updated to 2.10 (dark theme by default).

I can open up gimp and it will work perfectly; until I do literally ANYTHING (create a new image, apply an effect, open a menu, etc...)
When I was using the older version of GIMP, this would only sometimes happen, and only when I saved or exported an image. Now, this happens 100% of the time.

I did some research; it looks like the solution, if any, can be different for everyone. Any help would be appreciated! 

This is what I've tried so far:
-Restarting laptop (no duh...)
-Updating GIMP ( 2.x => 2.10)
-Uninstalling & installing GIMP
-Increasing priority in Task Manager

Nothing seems to work.

If you have a solution to this problem or are experiencing the same thing, please let me know ASAP.

Thank you.
