  Identifying a Font
Posted by: blgriffin83@gmail.com - 1 hour ago - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have a GIMP file that I created some time back. Fast forward to today, I am using a new computer which apparently doesn't have the font that I used in the design installed. When I open the GIMP file, the font is still applied within the design but it can't be edited and will not show the name of the font. Is there any way to identify the name of the font at this point?

I have a gif which supposedly has an alpha channel. When I try loading it onto a site, it always shows an opaque black background. I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.https://www.dropbox.com/s/wygkz0iqmqh0e2...2.gif?dl=0

Attached is a screenshot of what I'm looking at.  My avatar file has been chosen - but I don't know where to click next to upload it.  Clicking on the bottom button (Choose Avatar) brings me to a bad page.   Please help.

  EU4 Map Making

I am making a blank paintable map from a game's map that it uses to make the provinces in-game. I want to know how to make the border between all the different colours instead of individually selecting them and making a border.

  How to 'gradient out' to white?
Posted by: enginestar - Yesterday, 01:06 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Let's say I have an image.
I roughly cut out leaving a border of 20-30 pixels say.

How can I have the border of the image stretch out to the edges of the picture and blend into white?

See the image below. I intentionally kept the picture dark to illustrate what I want.

I've never seen it done anywhere - but I can't see why it wouldn't be possible?

Thanks.

  How to stretch the edge of a picture.
Posted by: enginestar - 04-21-2018, 01:08 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

Say I crop a picture.
On the left I have an edge that is 5 pixels - after my object.
I want to have a border around my object be 20 pixels say.

How can I stretch the edge and make it 20 pixels?
I used to do this in Photoshop.

As an example see the image below
[Image: HUstPk.jpg]

Say I want to stretch the left hand side.
Ignore the shadows! This is just an image I took off the internet to help ask my question!

Thanks.

  How can I resize one layer to fit another?
Posted by: dblj - 04-21-2018, 12:07 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I am trying to do this project where I take a photo of my face every day, and I want to stabilize my photos using GIMP. In my first picture, my face is more zoomed out than in the photo I want to edit, so I want to shrink the photo I am editing to fit that. How can I change the size of a layer? 

Similar to this instance of this video: https://youtu.be/FGXGHYonfGM?t=178

  How to increase distance betwen gridlines when using perspective tool
Posted by: Yash Pal - 04-20-2018, 09:49 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

OS: Ubuntu 16.04

GIMP: 2.8.22

When i want to use the perspective tool (in fact, any other tool too - like the rotate tool), with a small image, I find that the grid lines are so close that I cannot make out whether i have moved the corners/ rotated the image sufficiently.

Is there any way to reduce the number of grid lines or increase the distance between them in such a case?
