https://www.gimp-forum.net/attachment.php?aid=11260

  I don't succeed to download an image to 300 DPI
Posted by: Paul - 4 hours ago - Forum: General questions - No Replies

Hi,

I'm a beginner in the field. Please help me solve a problem. I have a 2500x3500px image, which I have uploaded in GIMP, to make part of it transparent. Then I wanted it to be downloaded with 300 DPI. Although I set the "Scale Image" to 300 DPI, when I downloaded it, I only had a 120 DPI image.
I made several attempts but to no avail,  GIMP refuse to download the image at 300 DPI.
Where am I going wrong?
Thank you.

  snap to grid

Hi

When you make a grid and then do a crop, the selection with the mouse snaps to the grid automatically when you reach a grid line.
Can this be turned off too?

  Selection deletion making layer turn transparent
Posted by: FolkFriend - Yesterday, 04:06 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hello all and thank in advance for your help with this unusual issue! I have been using Gimp for a very long time with no issues but recently whenever I create a selection using the fuzzy select tool and use the delete key to rub it out, I find that the remaining parts of the layer go semi-transparent. Can anybody tell me how to prevent this please?

Thanks!

  ofn-export-layers
Posted by: gimpygirl - Yesterday, 01:15 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (7)

I use ofn-export-layers a lot. Super useful plugin!
I noticed a very strange thing in windows 10 , GIMP 2.10.36

When ofn-export-layers is running (writing files) and I enter text anywhere on my computer, it adds characters I don't enter on my
keyboard like: ~ and ' and many more. So if I write "test", it adds random character in "test" which I dont really enter...

When ofn-export-layers has finished, this strange thing dissapears and I can enter text normally

Also ofn-export-layers runs very slow. Is this related to this?

I wanted to ask if the developer can tell me what this problem could be and if ofn-export-layers can be made faster (if possible).

So I need to wait to enter text anywhere until ofn-export-layers finished his work.

  automate layer movement
Posted by: gimpygirl - Yesterday, 01:02 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (11)

Hi

Referring to this post:

https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Cut-sq...from-iamge

I use the method with the guides and 2 python scripts.

2 questions:

1. Is it possible to automate layer movement? The images all have the same size. The layer needs to be moved in order to fit the guides of size 150 px. Is there a plugin or script that can let me move a layer to a position by entering x,y values or something?



2. Is is possible for the ofn-export-layers to have {numUp0}.png appear automatically so that I don't need to enter it each time when i run gimp?

  How to create a gradient from a profile?
Posted by: grillp - 02-26-2024, 11:31 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hey All.

New GIMP user here.

I am doing  some 3D modelling/rendering and want to create a greyscale bump map from a profile...

The profile is for a scalloped panel, as seen here:

   

So I want to use that profile to create a grayscale bump map like this (Dark is lower, light is higher), that repeats in the y direction, but follows a path that is the profile I am after.. kind of like this:

   

I created this one using a feathered Border Selection from a single central line, but it creates, a peak at the top and bottom of the bump which is not what I am after.

I find that using standard gradients are too linear, and I would like to use a Bezier curve path as the source for the gradient. If that makes sense.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

Cheers

G./

Lightbulb Exported png files get about 100 times larger than expected
Posted by: Grobe - 02-26-2024, 11:16 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hi.

Ok, so first - trying to upload the xcf file failed because of file size, so the only file possible to upload correctly is this png export settings.

Here is the file description.

  • Layer 1 - importet PNG file, file size about 55kB
  • Layer 2 - same dimension and roughly same size, but not same image.
  • Layer 3 - New transparent layer.
  • The layer 3 mainly consists of small spots of non-transparent pixels created with clone tool, so it's just to add/remove some features of a map.
The problem is that after exporting this image file to png format, the resulting file size get over 6MB - that is about 100 times larger, I expected the output png file to be maybe around 70kB at maximum.


Edit : Solved while edit this post

Ok, just figured the solution. The image precision was set to 32 bit floating point, and by converting to 8 bit integer, the exported PNG file became a nice 77kB file.

I post this anyway in case somebody happens to stumble upon same issue.

  Tips for cleaning up a receipt image
Posted by: mattyp77 - 02-25-2024, 08:19 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

So I have a receipt that I accidentally dropped on the floor of my car. Didnt notice it and it got stepped on, dirty, wrinkled, and distorted but it turns out I actually really need it to make a return. And it cant be looked up by credit card, it was a cash receipt. So I scanned it, cropped it, converted it to black and white, and did a little bit of manual clean up. Already that did a massive amount of clean up but I would like to go a step further. A lot of the text is cracked and partly unreadable and the bar code has a crease through it. At the very least I would like the lettering especially for the transaction number to be crisp and readable. If possible I would also like to fix up the bar code. I wonder if I can actually get it to scan. So any tips for filling in the cracks in the text and cleaning up the barcode would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

**Note: For the image I uploaded I did block out specific details to keep it anonymous. Besides its only so you can see what Im working with. Not for you to do it for me. Thanks!

Hi

I want to select multiple layers (at the right bottom window) and then delete them.
But nothing works: holding CTRL, SHIFT, ...
I can only select ONE Sad
