  No boxes for transparency
Posted by: meetdilip - 47 minutes ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I think I did something wrong with " Preferences ", either that or something related to the system. Now when I cut a piece of the image, I get the background colour instead of chess boxes style pattern.

Everything was fine last day. Is there any option to fix it ? Thanks.

  Night mode
Posted by: meetdilip - Yesterday, 08:08 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (7)

Hope you people remember how MacOS had 2 wallpapers, one for the day and other for the night. I was thinking whether both are the same. ie, they Photoshop ed the original image as the night wallpaper.

I was trying to learn how to make a day time image look dark as in the night. I tried Colour > curve and adding a layer with black colour ( opacity 50 ). While it seems ok, I am not happy with the result. How do we do that the right way ? Thanks.

PS : I am attaching a sample wallpaper I was working on.

I'm using Gimp 2.10.14 in Windows and Ubuntu 18.04.

I am easily able to place the resynthesizer plugins into the proper plugin directory in Windows, and all the filters work fine.

Can someone explain to me why it isn't that simple in Linux, and why ?

Had trouble with Gmic as well, but after removing and purging snap and distribution installs I was able to get it working by installing both Gimp and Gmic via apt-get.

Resynthesizer via apt-get added some but not all functionality of the resynthesizer plugins namely the heal-selection filter is missing.

Again, same version of Gimp in both operating systems so why isn't as easy to facilitate the usage of these scripts in Linux..

  [split] Gimp settings reset after Windows update
Posted by: Pat625 - 01-16-2020, 06:12 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

After an apparent windows update last night sometime, my GIMP has been reset to all the Preferences. I must make all my personal settings again. When I go through the directory of GIMP, I cannot find a folder with any fonts, but I seem to have all of them when I tested the text tool. It seems every time I have an update, something goes haywire in my Gimp Program. I also welcome any suggestions. Also, there are no scripts, plug-in, etc. that I have added. It is as though I have a completely new install.

  Windows fonts no longer available
Posted by: scottsimages - 01-16-2020, 05:07 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

After updates to Windows and to Gimp, I no longer have access to fonts. Arial is the only font available. I have tried a few solutions, i.e. resetting Windows font cache, re-install of Gimp, etc...nothing works. I did find an option that allows me to use Windows fonts in a separately accessible window, but the fonts are not available in the gimp text dialogs. Suggestions?

Windows 10 Pro x64 1909
Gimp 2.10.14
