  Gimp Animation
Posted by: CrazyDaze - 06-06-2017, 05:18 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi all, new member here.

I wanted to ask, are there any decent Gimp animation tutorials out there?  Any that go through the whole GAP package step by step?  YouTube has lots of 'how to do a particular effect', but I can't seem to find anything that takes you step by step, explaining all the features.  I'm finding in general that Gimp tutorials tend to be pretty poor.  You're told to 'do this, then do that, then tick that' without hardly any information on WHY you're doing it!

I'd be happy to pay for an online course if anything is out there.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

  3 Versions Gimp on one computer
Posted by: Pat625 - 06-06-2017, 04:58 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (14)

I have 2 different portable versions and one standard on my computer.  Only using one currently.  Want to use all of them at different times as some programs work on one but not the other.  Do they all need separated in different directories?

Also, I have the Add on Manager.  Can I set it somehow that it will work on all 3 rather than having to duplicate everything for each version?  The file is quite large with a lot of scripts, programs, etc.

Thank you for your help.

  Gimp 2.9.5 icon size settings
Posted by: rich2005 - 06-06-2017, 04:10 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - No Replies

Another infrequent offering

A Gimp 2.9.5 feature that has been there a while but I only just noticed.

A setting for the icon size. Icons and themes are split, but there is that little option at the bottom of the icon option menu which lets you set a size.

This is my 1920x1080 display http://i.imgur.com/KUWWexG.jpg so for one of those 4K monitors that are around now, maybe now you can see those tools.

  Can't edit brush size, etc
Posted by: harryllama - 06-05-2017, 05:51 PM - Forum: Windows - Replies (4)

Hello, I'm running 2.8.16, and I'm having trouble adjusting the brushes. Even though I've changed the brush size in the Brush Editor, the size doesn't actually change. I came across this link (http://www.gimptalk.com/index.php?/topic...what-i-do/) in which someone said that the brushes are read-only, and can only be adjusted with Tool Options. That DOES adjust brush size, but there's no slider for hardness....

So, I tried creating a new brush, but that brush suffers from the same problem of not being adjustable...

  selecting all pixels in an image based on RBG criteria
Posted by: mike - 06-04-2017, 10:22 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Dear All,

I was wondering if there is a way to select all pixels in an image based on RBG criteria. In other-words, every pixel in an image should have a certain Red, Green and Blue value from 0-255. Is there a way that I can select all pixels in an image based on these values. For example...

select all pixels close to white
Red: 230 - 255
Green: 230 - 255
Blue: 230-255

or, select red pixels
Red: 180 - 255
Green: 0-50
Blue: 0-50

Does this exist anywhere?

Thank you very much for you consideration.

Photo GIMP using too much RAM
Posted by: nkinesis - 06-04-2017, 04:27 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I'm using Gimp 2.8 on Linux Mint 18.1 Serena 64-bit. After I start it, even if I just stay in the main screen and don't load any files, the software uses 2.8GB of RAM. I have tried to change the values in Preferences > Environment to amounts way below the default, but the memory usage keeps the same. 

As I have 4GB RAM on my laptop and the OS uses around 1GB, this leaves me with almost no RAM for other applications. I have used GIMP on Windows before and I don't remind such behavior. Anyone could pelase give me tips on how to make GIMP use less RAM?

  Gimp 2.9.5 text along path
Posted by: rich2005 - 06-03-2017, 08:51 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (3)

Another infrequent report on Gimp 2.9.5 

I do not know when this came in precisely, some time ago but I just noticed it.

The Text-along-Path is improved. If the path is a little on the short side the text-path no longer shoots off to the corner. It means you can be a little off in your estimate of path length.

  While getting a drink from the cooler...
Posted by: trandoductin - 06-02-2017, 04:35 PM - Forum: Watercooler - Replies (3)

So i moved my forum to gimplearn.net as some of your may know by now.
I searched for "site:gimplearn.net" and it shows pages of results so that's good.
But i search for "gimp forum" and it's not on the list bakon.ca is still shown on page 2 or 3.
Do you know if google would detect that it's moved and list it if so about how long (do you know)?
Or would google be like hey this is just a copy of bakon.ca and black list it as copied site and toss it somewhere super low ranking and not even appear on list when searching for "gimp forum".
Anyone know or have a good guess as to what google might do? ofnuts? anyone?

  How to get 2d intead of 3d path for text
Posted by: jeffn - 06-02-2017, 01:58 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hi, all. I am a new gimper (first gimp post) and I have watched videos and attempted to bend text to a simple curved path. In the videos and tutorials, the text does exactly that. When I do it, the text bends as if around a 3d cylinder instead of simply maintaining one font size around a 2d curve. I assume there must be some simple setting but I can't seem to find it and I have googled everything I can think of for an answer but haven't found it anywhere. Your help would be appreciated immensely. Thank you.
