  is possible to change several BMP file indexed colors into ONE?
Posted by: ldd2 - 4 hours ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Greetings guys.

I have several .BMP files that share the same color palette.

I'd like to change several of the indexed colors from each file to have the same


So, for example, file1 has like 3 rows of indexed colors and all of them would like to be changed into one single indexed color (like pink). This could save me a lot of time changing each one of these files instead of clicking one index after another.

I'd appreciate the help if possible

  Scaling Image Quality
Posted by: zeuspaul - 10-01-2023, 07:37 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

If I scale an image I know I will lose some quality.  Assume I scale an image to 3x.  I find that I over scaled it and then rescale to 2x the original size.  What does Gimp use for the basis of the intermediate scale?  Is it scaling down from the lossy 3x image?  Or does it have the original image in memory and thus scaling 2x from the original image resulting in a better quality scaled image?

  Cant's Follow User's Manual Instructions
Posted by: pastor - 10-01-2023, 12:00 AM - Forum: OSX - Replies (3)

Please help, I can't follow some of the instructions in the user's manual. For example, You can add Brush-Pattern-Gradient icons and Active Image icon through Edit → Preferences → Toolbox

I can't find Preferences when I click on Edit on my MacOS Sonoma 14.0.  Please see the attachment.

Thanks very much for any help!

  Pasting from Photoshop to Gimp
Posted by: petrifieddoublegulp - 09-28-2023, 10:53 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hi y'all,

I'm wondering if you could answer me a riddle.

I've been working with game textures recently, and doing most of my precision editing in photoshop, and then copying from photoshop and pasting into gimp when they're ready.

I had no trouble doing this with the color textures, I'd paste into gimp, export as .dds and bingo, all good. The game would reproduce the texture on the models just fine.

BUT, when I tried to do the same with the opacity layers, I'd paste into gimp, export as .dds making sure to generate mipmaps, and then all of a sudden the opacity layer was nowhere to be seen. When I edit the game's original opacity layer .dds in gimp itself without pasting from photoshop, the opacity layer is then recognized by the game.

So my question is how do I paste from photoshop into gimp, making sure that I am not bringing any errant data along for the ride that might confuse the way the game renders that layer? Is there something I'm missing?
