Bug Gimp can not read/display images on the Ubuntu18.04LTS subsystem in Win10
Posted by: xinyuan - 10 hours ago - Forum: Gimp 2.8 questions - Replies (1)

I have installed Ubuntu18.04LTS subsystem in Win10. Gimp are also installed and updated.


the gimp error messgaes:
(1) when I open gimp with the code: "export DISPALY=:0.0, gimp", an error message will be shown in the Ubuntu terminal, as shown in the below,

Failed to execute child process “dbus-launch” (No such file or directory)
(gimp:1109): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: 10:18:49.757: g_object_set_is_valid_property: object class 'GeglConfig' has no property named 'cache-size'
/usr/bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally without any error message

(2) when I would like to read a image(gimp can not open .eps, .jpeg, but can open PDF file ) with gimp, a gimp message will appear as the following,
Opening '/home/qixycn/P1structure.eps' failed:
Permission denied

I truely hope someone can help me solve these problems. It has troubles me about a week. I'm so frustrated. Thank you in advance.

My own take on luminosity masks. While it pays its dues to PatDavid's canonical tutorial on the subject, it creates the same masks using a different and (hopefully) more efficient method that allows:

  • to create a luminosity selection from the current layer in one single click (or one keystroke if you defined shortcuts)
  • in a future version, to define your own masks
As usual the script can be found here.  Restrictions in this version:

* Only PatDavid's masks, no custom masks yet
* Only for Gimp 2.10 (seems to hit a bug in 2.8)

Enjoy.

I've created a PDF portfolio using Gimp 2.10, but when I open the PDF in Acrobat, the fonts are all messed up. How can I fix it?

I am trying to make a template. 

I need a canvas of 2.6875" x 3.21875", I nailed it no problem

But then I need a box the creates a border that is 39" thick or 2.2975" x 2.82875"

I can not seem to define this box by these measurements.

Any help is appreciated and apologize for the simple question.

  resizing an active layer
Posted by: Argos - 11-12-2019, 07:18 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

I have a minor problem. I have a group photograph that I'd like to frame. Unfortunately the photograph is in different proportions to the frame (It's wider in proportion to the height). In normal circumstances, I could crop to the correct proportion, but that would mean losing the people to the sides of the picture. Framing, as, is leaves an ugly band at top and bottom of the picture. In this case, a simple change is possible and easy, in principle. The foreground of the picture is grass. If I could add a blank area to the bottom of the picture, I could use the clone tool to extend the grass to the new bottom of the picture. It's sufficiently amorphous and out of focus, to add without any distinct addition. I've searched the manual, without success. I've a number of pictures which could be improved by such a solution, or variations of a solution.
Cheers

BTW, this is my first post to this forum, so, apologies in advance, if I've not done it 'by the book'

  How to perspective transform a layer and its mask?
Posted by: daiappy - 11-12-2019, 01:54 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Huh   I have an image in Gimp, that has a layer mask made from a selection I made that is also stored as a channel. I want to use a transform action, (perspective transform),  on that image and to also apply it to the layer mask. When I do this it doesn't transform the layer mask. So, how do I do perspective transform on the image and its mask, (or selection) at the same time?  Huh

  Newbie question: Simulating 30X optical zoom
Posted by: briwillis - 11-12-2019, 02:15 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

Hello,

  Please forgive this newbie..probably silly...question, but is there a way to simulate a 30x optical zoom in Gimp?  I have an image shot on my Nikon D3300 at 18-mm of the entrance of the sanctuary of my church.  I need to zoom into the picture as though the image was shot from a 30x optical PTZ camera at its tightest shot.  Do I just zoom into the picture with "30 times magnification?" Thanks for the help.

  Fourier Transform tutorials
Posted by: Leader344 - 11-11-2019, 07:01 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Hi. I am a novice GIMP user. I have 2.10.8 and G'MIC. Retired, I look at GIMP as a way to stay "mentally challenged". One thing I like to work on are old family pictures, with some having the coherent noise patterns that I thought Fourier Transform could improve. I have watched youtube videos on G'MIC Fourier Transform, but the tutorial directions I've found don't align with what I see in G'MIC - Frequencies - Fourier Transform. Could someone direct me to tutorials or instructions that align with the Fourier Transform I see in 2.10.8?  THANKS for any information or suggestions!!!
