  Help with black outline
Posted by: Megs123 - 10-30-2017, 06:48 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Ok. I'm new to GIMP and not very photo-editing savvy.

I have an image with a transparent background, and a bunch of white and red text and some linework. 

I need to put a black outline around it as I need it to be on a background that is half white and black. 

I've tried to follow the tutorial video's I've found on YouTube but have somehow ended up just blacking out the entire image. 

Can anyone help?

  edit image help
Posted by: lori17 - 10-28-2017, 04:18 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (33)

Hello from Canada
for many years I used Windows PC and purchased Adobe PS after taking a course.
I used this software a lot and became pretty efficient, if I do say so myself.
Couple years ago I left the Windows world and went Apple. I now have macbook air.

I am looking for a free photo editing software to do some specific tasks which I used to do in Adobe PS.
My instructor of days gone by said GIMP is pretty good. 

In PS i could erase or brush out part of image and replace it with my own image inserted or text. 
that is mainly what I would like to do now. 
attached is an image I would like to edit. removing the goofy looking birds and replacing with pictures of 
parents and child. 
it is a Christmas gift for my niece and first baby. 

i think i have downloaded the correct version for my Mac. any tips from the gallery?

Ok.....shoot me down if this has already been covered.

Thanks in advance.

  Help: I can't save pictures
Posted by: Xinuque - 10-27-2017, 05:06 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

This is the problem I am facing: When I try to save a picture, I can't. The "save as" and "save" commands are irresponsive. When I click on them, the only thing that happens is that the Toobox disappears.
I am using Windows 10 and Gimp 2.8.22.

Thanks.


Never mind. Issued solved...

  Problem editing GIMP icons
Posted by: crazyBaboon - 10-27-2017, 12:34 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

Hi all,

I have been trying to add a bit of color to the Symbolic icons but I am unable to visualize them in inkscape 0.92 as it opens an empty document. When I try to open it, Inkscape does produce the following warning:

[Image: WAsMbXf.png]

How do I fix this? 

Thanks!



Ok just realized how to do it. Simply press ESC and you should be able to edit the icons!

  Would someone be willing to make this plug-in for me? 15-bit color
Posted by: Marscaleb - 10-26-2017, 05:17 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (6)

Hello; I have not been to this forum before, so I don't know what the proper etiquette is for this sort of thing.  If asking for favors like this is a big no-no, then I apologize and won't ask why I don't have any responses.

I am looking for some functionality to help with my pixel art, but I am not familiar with the scripting and programming that GIMP uses.
I'd like a tool or command or something to help me convert my colors to 15-bit.  (Of course, the image itself would not be saved in this format, I just need to convert the colors I am using/making.)

Just so we're all on the same page of what I mean by 15-bit color, it is this:  Instead of the RGB channels having a range of 256 colors, they have a range of 32.
I don't need to redesign the fundamental way GIMP handles color data, I just need to conform the colors I am using to match those limitations.  Since GIMP operates in 24-bit color, this just means that the RGB value of any color needs to be a multiple of 8.

A color value of (104, 120, 160) is a 15-bit color, but a color value of (106, 120, 160) is not.
So what I want is a tool that would convert the color (106, 120, 160) into (104, 120, 160).

As for exactly how this tool should operate, I'm fairly open to a lot of implementations.  I don't know the inner working of GIMP, so I don't know what methods would be the easiest to create.  (And I am asking for this as a favor, after all.)

I could accept a tool that would convert a whole image (or whole layer) into 15-bit color.  Perhaps a script that separates the channels, converts each of those channels to a 32 color palette set to the correct multiple-of-eight values, (convert to an index of 32 values won't work right,) and then recombines them into a single image again.
I could accept a tool that goes through the colormap and converts each index to a a 15-bit color.  I don't commonly work within the indexed mode, but it is no hassle to convert to it just to get the colors correct.
I could accept a new layer mode that converts the colors to be 15-bit even though it would only change how it is displayed.  Actually that would be really useful for quickly making tests and iterations.  (Honestly the layer modes could stand to get some overhauls anyway; I've seen a number of pixel artists use photoshop because there they can set up layers to convert their art to custom stepped gradients, allowing them to use painting tools but still convert their images into a proper palette.)
I could even take a tool that just converts my currently selected foreground/background colors into 15-bit, if that's a thing.  It may take a little bit of time for me to go through all of the colors I am using, but it is still worlds faster than manually tweaking each color by checking its values one at a time.

Or if there is some other method that would make more sense to whoever would be doing me the favor of creating this tool, I probably could accept that too.  I just want to be able to convert the colors I am using into 15-bit.

  Saving a font after you've created it (not downloading and saving)
Posted by: usmdesigner - 10-25-2017, 04:06 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I find myself trying to recreate the font I used for my youtube thumbnails all the time.  Is there a way once I have the font edited that I can save it for later use? 

I have to resize every time, change it to the font I like, then apply affects.

I have checked and these .png files look like normal .png files. I have got libpng version 1.6.28 installed. Is this an issue with the version libpng installed? How do I fix this?
