  Coordinate System in Inkscape
Posted by: Espermaschine - 3 hours ago - Forum: Other graphics software - Replies (1)

Quick question about Inkscape, the tiled clones dialogue and the coordinate system it uses.

Lets say i clone a square 10 Rows x 10 Columns, with a
Shift Y of 10% per Row and Shift X of 10% per Column.

I also want a stair effect per column of one square:
Shift Y per Column 100 + 10 for the gap compensation = 110%.

It works as expected, but when i look at the coordinate system, i get the impression something is wrong.


Negative displacements are to the left and to the bottom.


By that logic, i should have used:
Shift Y -10% per Row
Shift Y -110% per Column

But that gives me something entirely different...

Where is the mistake in my thinking ??
Or is my coordinate system the wrong way around ?

  Curve Tool mysterious x:
Posted by: Laserulo - 4 hours ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

When I open my curve tool I find there is a vertical line with the label 'x:193' where the number is a position on the horizontal axis. This position is never the same i.e. it varies from one image to another. I've tried to deduce what it means but am at a loss. Gimp context help provides no clues. Any suggestions?

  Switching to RGB and Back to File's Color Profile?
Posted by: TechnicGeek - 6 hours ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Sometimes when I open files I get the following dialog:


Does that mean for example if I opened file with Epson RGB Profile, I have to convert to RGB to work with it and then at the end of my project convert back to Epson RGB?

Are there CMYK profiles that files have? Like if I open design for print with CMYK profile, must I convert it to RGB to work with it or I can work without conversion?

The goal is to have completed project print-ready.

Recently saw screenshots on GIMP's Official Twitter.

To be straightforward, thanks for ruining the user interface with that corporate-idealist flat design, hard to recognize de-colored icons and the mockery of the new Photoshop UI.

Now please tell me, how to restore old themes, icons and layout of GIMP 2.8.

  How to Batch Convert to Indexed Using Specific Palette?
Posted by: Vespin - Yesterday, 09:31 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

Hi all! I'm fairly basic with GIMP, which is why I need help with this issue. I'm looking to batch convert a series of images to 256 colors using the same palette for each image (and reduced color bleeding dithering, and removing unused colors). I'm pretty sure there's a way to do this with GIMP, but I'm finding the procedure list (and how to use it) somewhat intimidating.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

  Select by Color
Posted by: rich2005 - Yesterday, 11:50 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.9.x - No Replies

This is Gimp 2.9.9 and although this feature has been included since Gimp 2.9.5 worth a mention.

The Select by Color tool still has the select-by options same as Gimp 2.8.x with some additions reflecting the added color spaces, hue-saturation-value (HSV) and luminance-chroma-hue (LCH)

Tucked under those, a draw mask tick box to give a preview of the areas affected by the selection.

  understanding brush dynamics (angle jitter)
Posted by: Espermaschine - 12-14-2017, 09:32 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I want an arrow that wiggles a little bit, as i drag the brush along.

Im not sure i understand the dynamics curves fully....

So on the left side i have 'Angle' and on the right side 'Randomness', right ?

But when i turn up 'Angle', the arrows wiggle to the right and when i restrict 'Randomness', they wiggle to the left.

What is the logic behind this ?
