  removing an object from an image
Posted by: metulburr - 10-19-2016, 12:54 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (7)

My goal:
I am trying to remove the kid from the left. At least enough to crop to make a decent pic without him. 

I "usually" do this by selecting random smaller sections from the area and blending/healing them in to make it look more natural. However if there is a simpler way i would like to know. 

On this i copied a section from the right and moved it over. Its good enough up to the point that the selection is too dark. Is there a way to lighten the selection to the surrounding area all at once?

Are you able to add links to places where you can let people know where to get a good version of gimp etc?
I know many people will already have one before they go looking for a forum but just an idea. Maybe some other places as well that you trust. Or isn't it something you are interested in.

Summer has gone here, into Autumn. Looking back to the garden poppies, they always cheer me up but do not last very long. To remind me.

  Inking & Coloring a Cartoon Character with Inkscape
Posted by: Espermaschine - 10-16-2016, 09:54 AM - Forum: Other graphics software - Replies (3)

I made this as practice. Never did something like that before, but i've been following Jason Secrest's YT-channel for a while.

You can get the drawing for free from his website.

Inkscape can do a lot of things Illustrator does, so that was a fun experience.
Making the halftone pattern was a headache though. But thats not Inkscapes fault.

  Could not seek in XCF file
Posted by: nbeaudet - 10-16-2016, 08:47 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

Good day to all,

After applying many scripts to an image, I get the following message upon Saving an .xcf file:

Could not seek in XCF file

I am using Partha's 2.8.14 version, Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, Ram 16G.

When the file is ready for saving, it occupies around 7 G in current memory.

What is my problem?

  Minimalism versus Bloatware
Posted by: Espermaschine - 10-15-2016, 06:44 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (6)

I recently cleaned up my Gimp.
Startup time was waaaaay too long for my taste and i know that i have a lot of scripts that i have no idea of what they are doing, meaning: i never use them.

Also edited a few scripts  so that they turn up in a different place where i would find them.

Had ofnut's resource manager installed some time ago, but went one step further and also put the majority of Gimp's native patterns and gradients in a resource folder.
I know that could be problematic with some of the scripts, but i dont think thats a problem in my case because i dont use the majority of one-click effects anyway.

Also deleted a ton of fonts i never use. Once you learn more about fonts, you get away from all the space fonts to a more classic and universal style.

Now everything is much more clean and tidy and i like it that way.

And to start with, im not even a big hoarder. I guess there are other users who have tons of patterns, gradients, fonts, effect scripts and plug-ins.

I hardly need any path related scripts because i make everything in Inkscape now and import it into Gimp.
In fact i think Inkscape and Gimp make such a great combination.
Loads of things that are so much easier to make in Inkscape (shapes obviously, text on a path, gradients, warped text, even kerning), while on the other hand adding texture, layermodes and filters is so much easier (and better) in Gimp.

So what does your Gimp look like ? Is it bursting with extras or do you like it clean and minimal ?
