  sketching with a Wacom Tablet
Posted by: Espermaschine - 01-19-2018, 11:54 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Bougth a Wacom Intuos Small Tablet CTL-480 over a year ago.
Thats when i thought the best way to make posterized Obey-esque art is by drawing simplified shapes manually on top of a processed image.

Found it a very awkward tool and ditched it in frustration.

Tried again yesterday. I dont know, something is not right.....
Installed the latest driver and it has gotten better, but its still not like drawing on paper.

I dont think i have pressure tapering and im very unsure about the right brush dynamic.

Watched a lot of videos and it seems 'Basic Dynamic' is supposed to be the default for drawing in Gimp.
It does give me faded strokes and differing opacity, but it does not really seem ideal for drawing.

Of course i can produce a stroke that is tapered at both ends with the right brush dynamic, but whats the point for drawing ?
Especially when i have to adjust the Fade manually to get the right tapering for any given line ???

I also applied the Smooth Stroke option, which helps a bit but i havent figured out a good setting yet.

Also tried with Inkscape and i just dont find it very useful with the smoothing option of the Pen Tool.

As a last trial i installed Krita, which is very laggy on my computer.
According to the FAQ, the 4GB RAM i have is not optimal...

Any advice ?

  Cannot draw arrows or lines
Posted by: Stephen_A - 01-19-2018, 03:45 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (3)

Apologies for newbie question. Asking about drawling simple arrows, and lines to create arrows. Have installed arrow.scm  and 'arrow' appears on 'Tools.' Unable to create arrow.
Tried using pencil tool. I cannot make it create any lines, despite ensuring I'm on the right layers.
Any pointers appreciated.

  Is there a way to speed this up? Tile matching
Posted by: trandoductin - 01-18-2018, 11:22 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

description of what i am trying to do

So I have a script right now it's doing this
loop through source image for each tile, copy and paste as pattern (difference mode) over top of tile image.
loop through each tile of a visible copy and look at r,g,b using 
make selection of the tile.

r, _, _, _, _, _ = pdb.gimp_histogram(comp_layer,HISTOGRAM_RED,0,255)
g, _, _, _, _, _ = pdb.gimp_histogram(comp_layer,HISTOGRAM_GREEN,0,255)
b, _, _, _, _, _ = pdb.gimp_histogram(comp_layer,HISTOGRAM_BLUE,0,255)
look at r+g+b value and pick the tile with lowest sum consider that the best match....
and then compose an image using those best match tiles...
what's taking along time right now is this process of selecting the tile and using gimp_histogram...

Is there anyway i could possibly speed this up?
I can't think of one.

  any plugin that helps remove EXIF data
Posted by: louis2008 - 01-18-2018, 09:10 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (5)

Yes I know there are other standalone freeware that will remove EXIF data quickly 
but I will work intensively with GIMP so I want to save up the effort of starting
another application. 

Are there any GIMP plugins that will remove EXIF data completely?

  intelligently removing logo??
Posted by: louis2008 - 01-18-2018, 09:02 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I have a large number of photos that are with logo mostly located at the lower right bottom
I want to remove all the logo (that I am authorized to do so) intelligently and quickly

What I mean intelligently is - removing the logo while preserving the surrounding color or pattern as good as possible.
Quickly - removing in a bulk way because there are too many photos to work with, I can't afford to do it one by one

I can understand and accept that it may not apply to all photos because a few photos may be out of the "pattern"

Is it possible or simply not possible?
