  Automate Editing
Posted by: DanInVa - 11 hours ago - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

I'm an astrophotographer coming from Photoshop. My images are very large and when I make an edit in gimp I have to wait for the edit to complete before I can move on. What I would like to do is make a small image, do all of my edits, and apply those edits to the large image. Is there a script (or something else) available for this?

  Translating scripts back into steps
Posted by: Espermaschine - Yesterday, 06:54 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (2)

I have a bunch of scripts i'd like to study/reverse engineer.
Sadly i dont understand the scripting language, and its a lot of work to look up every step with the console.

Is there a way to "play" a script in slowmotion so i can watch the steps, or some kind of verbose log or something ?

  How to save an indexed colormap? Recipe from http://gimpforums.com/ does not work!
Posted by: gnuimpcub - Yesterday, 10:51 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)


I am new to this forum; not new to Gimp, but have been using it mainly for resizing or converting photos to other formats. Now I want to do something more with my new Wacom graphic tablet.

I am using Gimp 2.8.18 on Debian 9.

My Problem:

I have a nice image (photograph), convert the mode to "indexed", see the corresponding colormap under Palettes in the palette dockable window. But I cannot find a way to save this new color map for use in other images. Searching my heart out in the net, I have come to this:

Quote:- You can save the color map to a palette: open the Palettes list ((Windows>Dockable dialogs>Palettes), right-click on the list and "Import palette", then select "Image" as the source.

from http://gimpforums.com/thread-how-do-i-sa...-color-map

However, this does not work with me, I do not know how to name the new palette and how to save it. Can anybody help, please?

Thank you,

  Reducing Portrait to Basic Colors and Lines
Posted by: ev1lchris - Yesterday, 08:54 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to Gimp after being an Adobe Photoshop user.

I was wondering how I could go about taking a portrait and reducing it to it's basic colors and lines? I want it to look like it was drawn or maybe etched.

  Freezes at start of line.
Posted by: DemonSlayer112 - Yesterday, 05:45 AM - Forum: General questions - No Replies

I been having a problem in gimp gimp where my huion pen seems to lag a bit while drawing the start of a line. It won't show the line at first but when it does part of the beginning is straight even when it's ment to be curved. I thought it was due to te fact that I tryed using a huion and wacom(not at once) but in mspaint there's no lag at all. 
Also I seen pressure sensitively works in the huion pressure sensitively test but in gimp there's no trace of it and there used to be.

I know about not making the canvas size to large I usually work with width being 1700(worked fine before no problems) at most and height being below that but this time I used 1000x1000 and went even lower the screenshot canvas was 500x500. 
I also removed the press and hold right click thing.

  How to remove entry from selection lists?
Posted by: ajax - 02-21-2018, 08:37 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I'm using GIMP 2.8.22 (Portable Apps Version) on Windows 7 and trying to use Edit>Preferences to customize Color Management.  There are various places where settings are selected from drop down lists.  When the setting you want isn't there you use an option which says "Select ... from disk ...".  I've been able to enter meaningless data by fumbling on the keyboard.  These mistaken values show up on the list but I cannot figure out how to remove them.  It seems to me that any kind of custom setting like this is something that one may want to change as in remove an entry that either becomes invalid or is no longer desired.  How is one to do that?

  Grid no longer appears
Posted by: ay200 - 02-21-2018, 02:01 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Trying to work with spritesheets. Had a 128x128 grid for several weeks, but it has now vanished and will not return for any .xcf or .png image. Toggling "Show Grid" does nothing. "Image>Configure Grid" and "Edit>Preferences>Default Grid" configuration do nothing. Anyone have any idea how to get my grids back?
