  Cannot reinstall Gimp on different drive (resolved)
Posted by: EffiRain - 1 hour ago - Forum: Windows - Replies (1)

Hi, longtime Gimp user, 10+ years, very casually though.

The SSD where Gimp was installed recently died (Christmas). Today, I tried to install Gimp on a different drive and the installation fails. It is trying to install Gimp on the no longer existent drive, and there is no option to install it on the new drive.

Before you tell me to "uninstall the old Gimp" as per the pinned instructions on this forum, Windows uninstaller fails, of course, because the old SSD does not exist. The old SSD is dead.

Therefore, since the Gimp installer lacks such a basic function as drive selection, it appears I will need to spend time in the registry. I am not a computer genius, so yay. Great design choice.

So could someone with a bigger brain than me please explain step by step how to remove the old Gimp from the registry so that the Gimp installer can then install to the correct drive?

Thank you.

  Chaining color/tint of selection
Posted by: sayluv - 1 hour ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)


This dog was standing on a red mat and you can see some of the red reflected on their white hair. I have removed all the extraneous parts of the image but would like to change the color or tint of the edges. 

If I used the fuzzy select tool to select these red areas how can I change those areas to more closely match the surrounding areas that are more white?

  arbitrarily stretching a polygon shaped section of an image
Posted by: gimpuserjan2022 - 7 hours ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

hi ,
I am using gimp 2.10 on windows 10
I want to do the following
Select a polygon section in an image . I am able to do that using free select tool .
Now I want to select any vertex of polygon and pull it farther . This should distort the image inside that polygon . But when I do that simply the polygon shape changes but there is no effect on underlying image .
I hope that I am able to explain my requirement .
To give another example - suppose image is of human body . I draw a polygon such that right hand is inside it , now when I will stretch or squeeze the polygon then right hand should get deformed . 
Can you tell me how to do above ?

  Qr code generator plugin
Posted by: CodeScooper - 01-20-2022, 02:54 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (1)

I'm new into Gimp but think that i will use it for long time,
pretty exited by extension opportunities 

the first thing that i want to do is have an extension that permit to add a Qr code on my pictures 
with some option like embed a logo or not,
set the color of the Qr code.

The only way that i have to done it is go on a dedicated website like (https://www.qr-code-generator.com/
download the result and then import it into my image. 

When i tried to look on internet that's what i found for the moment : 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHXX3KuB23Q ( presentation from Akkana Peck  about basis to write a gimp plugin )
- https://www.gimp-forum.net/ (this website but the thread about Qr code dont discuss the possibility to build an embeded one / but very happy to join a community around gimp )
- https://github.com/isman7/gimp-qrcode (this repository on github, i did'nt understand all yet )

If the subject talk to someone i will very happy to exchange about, cause i think that can be useful in the process of making flyers , reciept, branded bag ( like the one i'm working on - see pic )

Have a good day ^^

  Is there a way to increase saturation past 100%
Posted by: michelstango - 01-19-2022, 07:33 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have an image that has to be used with a de-saturation shader.  Normally I just up the saturation so the colors are not washed out, but said image already has several colors that are at maximum saturation.  Is there any way to compensate for the de-saturation?

Just wanted to mention that I created a "Selection to Neon" plug-in to turn a selection into a neon effect.
Easy to create light saber or 80s cartoon laser effects

  Script fu automation
Posted by: Morek - 01-18-2022, 09:27 PM - Forum: Scripting questions - No Replies

Hello all, I am newbie in gimp and want to create simple script.

My goal:
1. Delete some parts of picture for example (X:100, Y:200, W:150, H:250)
2. move part of picture from X:10, Y:20, W:15, H:25 to X:100, Y:200
and I would like to repeat point 2 few times.

for example I would like to have something like that: SELECT(X,Y,W,H) -> DELETE(selection) -> SELECT(X,Y,W,H) -> MOVETO(X,Y,W,H)

I have started with console script: (gimp-image-select-rectangle image 0 0 0 64 64)
but it throws Error: eval: unbound variable: image

I think the console script would be enough for me, I don't need script to be saved in scripts folder.

  Error when trying to use GAP script
Posted by: guillaumesoucy - 01-18-2022, 07:56 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (4)


I’d download the GAP scripts for GIMP (to make animations) and when trying to use it I’ve got this error message:


The .zip file was extracted into /home/guillaumesoucy/.config/GIMP/2.10/scripts and GIMP was restarted, a new tab named “Video” was added and when by example if I select something then Video -> Duplicate Continue it throw me the error above.

Someone please know how to make it work?
