  Rectangle selct disappears
Posted by: jimindt - 10 hours ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I've created a new layer filled  with Transparency. Made it active by clicking on it.
Go to the Rectangle Select tool. Draw a rectangle on the canvas.
As soon as I click on any other tool in the Toolbox the rectangle I drew disappears off the canvas.
I've created the rectangle with all of the Modes. Same results.

What didn't I do?

  Special curves: three plugins bundled in one
Posted by: Ottia Tuota - Yesterday, 12:29 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

I bundled my three plugins Lissajous, Rhodonea, and Spiropath in one .py file (slightly updating them at the same time). The file is found in the same place


when you follow the link "Applications". Better delete the old ones (they are copies of the new ones and will not be updated). In Gimp's menu the path is now a little different:

Image/Render/Parametric curves/Special curves.

If you have any problems with the plugins, please tell me. Or any questions, or suggestions. It is great fun to create such beautiful curves but I have run out of ideas. The plugin Parametric curves is a general tool but requires some mathematics and some programming, so if there is any need for some special curve, I'd be happy to try to make a specialized plugin. Just ask.

Hi all, I am pretty new to GIMP however wanted to make panorama with pandora. I put that script to both folders and wanted to refresh by Script-Fu as manual says. But there is some error in gimp or all the scripts (idk) as you can see on the screenshot. Could anyone help me please fix that?

Question Using the GIMP Manual
Posted by: Phantom077 - Yesterday, 01:06 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I just now installed the English language manual for GIMP 2.10.  After I downloaded and installed the manual, I restarted my desktop PC (Windows 10).

However, the pages of the manual display as blank pages when I open it inside GIMP.  Attached is a screenshot to show what I am talking about.

What do I need to do, to fix this?  Thank you for any help.

Hello, a first time post.

I have downloaded the GIMP 2.10.18 for Windows on my PC and I'm getting what you see in Pic 1.

When I went to get advice in video form with Youtube everyone had the layout as in Pic 2.

Pardon my ignorance but what do I need to do to get it to that format ?

I realise it's probably I'm doing something completely wrong but any helpful advice you can give would be appreciated.

Can someone please tell me how to convert a plain text to Golden or Silver letters ? Will it work on non-Latin characters as well ?

  roundness jitter
Posted by: Torkuda - 03-29-2020, 01:21 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Simple question, is there a way to make is to the angle and roundness of a brush in gimp can change at random like you can do with it's location?

(Also, quickly, where the heck did all the brush types go? Apparently there are supposed to be hundreds built in but I see like- 20.)

  A Guide to Ofnuts Paths
Posted by: carmen - 03-28-2020, 10:14 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (1)

I have collected the available documentation in the e-book 'A Guide to Ofnuts Paths.epub', to be downloaded from https://drive.google.com/open?id=1IBwwHt...cqRLXmOyaK.
It includes some additional examples, cross-links, and a Table of Contents (TOC) for easy consultation.
- If you wish to have a look at the book but lack dedicated software on your computer, THIS LINK
opens a browser-based book-viewer:

  • upload e-book from your computer
  • navigate with -> and <-
  • button on the upper right corner opens TOC and access to text search, configuration...
- Caveat:
  • animations are in webp format, which should be alright in browser-based readers, but is likely to be rejected by some dedicated devices
  • if your e-reader can switch between paged and scroll mode, select the latter
- Comments, corrections, &cetera are welcome.

Question Soft Proofing not working on Latest Gimp
Posted by: JayDee - 03-28-2020, 08:29 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have tried to use a .icm  ICC soft-proofing file from One Vision to use their printers for my photos.
However it does not work (no change to the displayed image) when I set up using the Preferences dialogue
or the dialog in the View-Colour Management menu (Proof colours and Soft_Proofing profile set ok).

I know the ICC file works ok because I use it to change the the Assign Colour Profile menu to change from the built in Gimp sRGB profile. I could soft-proof like this however it is a bit clumsy.

Is this a bug or am I missing something ……. ?

  GIMP V2.10.18
Posted by: BRIANH - 03-28-2020, 06:17 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I'm a new user and am still learning how to navigate the various options etc.  I have noticed that when I am adding text the default is Sans Serif  62 px. This is
huge and forces me to adjust the text size every time I use GIMP and edit / add text.  Could someone please let me know how I can change the default font and size.

thanks Brian
