  Help with Painting
Posted by: dmaarie - 03-16-2019, 10:21 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello I am back, needing help with editing another painting for prints....

So I have attached a cropped photo of what I am working with at the bottom. Basically my painting involves a simple line painting of a woman with curly strands everywhere. It involves white lines, blue lines for the curls and an orange background. In the actual painting the paint leaves an intense texture. For the prints I just want it to be a solid, un-textured version. Now I am wondering if there is a way to somehow select each section, Like select all the blue lines/curls to colour them a  solid blue, or select only the background to paint it a solid orange? Basically any way besides the lasso selection tool (because its taking me FOREVER). The fuzzy select tool doesnt work well either. I hope I explained this clearly enough?

Let me know if anyone knows of any short cut that wont cause me to rip out my own hair  Smile

  How to install Gimp Heal Plugin (Linux)?
Posted by: ciararseeley - 03-16-2019, 05:14 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (4)


I have Linux MX 18.1.

I would like to install the Heal tool (and all other tools coming with it) included in the Resynthesizer package:

As described, I installed gimp-plugin-registry from the repository. I can see now many new plugins in my Gimp 2.10.8, for example the resynthesizer module. I can use it without any issues.

But under Enhance are not new tools. No heal tool, no uncrop, no sharpen, no enlarge.

I tried to copy the plugin py files manually into the plugin folders (under home and under usr) and made them executable. It did not help, still no heal tool.

I tried search for a solution, but most threads about that topic are 5 years old.

  Hillustrative script-fu error
Posted by: Chuanist - 03-16-2019, 03:37 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (6)

Dear All—

I run GIMP on two Macs, in El Capitan (Mac OS 10.11.6). I realize most GIMP users are not Mac heads... Rolleyes

An article on hyper-realistic photos (link is in the next paragraph) on Pixls.us really caught my interest. However, when I downloaded and installed the script to produce the frequency separation layers: hillustrative-2.8.scm, only one layer gets created in GIMP 2.9 and 2.10. Then it crashes.

See: https://pixls.us/articles/highlight-bloo...tion-look/

The script can be downloaded here: http://www.machead.info/scripts/hillustrative-2.8.scm

I wonder if  anyone has experienced this?

These events take place  upon running the Script-Fu script Hillustrative:

The Blur layer is created, then:


GIMP Message

Execution error for ‘Hillustrative’;

Error: event: unbound variable: plut-in-gmic

Upon closing this error message, another error message is revealed underneath it:

GIMP Message

‘Hillustrative’ left image undo in unbound state: closing open undo groups.

  Gimp with wavelet sharpen plugin
Posted by: throast - 03-16-2019, 01:45 PM - Forum: OSX - Replies (1)


I'd used an unofficial version of Gimp that already contained the wavelet sharpen plugin for quite a while now. Assuming that the tool would be included in the new official 2.10 versions, I figured I'd use the new one and deleted the version I used previously. I'm noticing that wavelet sharpen was actually never a pre-set tool in any official release, at least for Mac. Installing the plugin manually doesn't work, I've tried everything, so now I'm desperately searching for that unofficial version but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know the version I'm talking about or how to properly install the plugin?

  Tablet not working for gimp
Posted by: Sammydewie - 03-15-2019, 10:45 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hi, I'm new to gimp and would really like to get into digital art. The problem is, i can't get my pen to move on the program. it just sticks to one place on the canvas and doesn't move anywhere, even though i'm moving my actual pen. I have the drivers installed on my Huion H610PRO. I just got it last christmas and I haven't been using it since then because of this. There's nothing wrong with the tablet, or my computer. Can someone please me before I put digital art away from me?

  Choosing to learn Python-Fu or Script-Fu for a simple script
Posted by: BrianJ - 03-15-2019, 05:48 PM - Forum: Scripting questions - Replies (2)

Hello, I want to use GIMP to extract 200 small images from a set of larger images, which are uniformly structured. I have figured out how to use image_select_rectangle to do the initial selection, in both Python fu and Script fu, though in Python I am still working on learning the syntax to identify [Image] correctly.

I need to flush out a script that will copy the selection to a new file and save it to a folder, with an incremented filename each time.

I will also need to write a bit of code to update the x,y coordinates of the corner of each selection, which are 4x5 groups of 5x2 images (200 total images). I have basic programming skills but I haven't really used them in several decades - I learned C++ when it was - BRAND NEW.

So I am wondering which of the two scripting modules will be easier to use to write a small/short routine to increment the x,y value for each selection from the larger image? 

A hint towards the basic increment variable routine that would be used to increment the parameters in image_select_rectangle would certainly speed things up. As would the needed syntax on incrementing the file name on the output call. Any tips would be much appreciated.

  gimp crashes when it tries to find newly installed font

  Preserving EXIF
Posted by: Turn2Linux - 03-15-2019, 07:47 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I recently joined the GIMP community, after years of Paint.net.

Somehow the EXIF of my photos is not preserved either when importing my JPG or exporting them
(Preference> Import/Export > checked the preserve EXIF)

I know there was a problem for Pentax users, but I use Sony and have the same problem.

Any help will be appreciated.
