  Liquid rescale fix-up for Windows Gimp 2.10
Posted by: rich2005 - 05-17-2018, 08:16 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

Liquid rescale - one of the first 'extras' installed in my linux flatpak.

The windows version is 32 bit and comes as an installer. Hate those installers. This one in particular does not want to install if Gimp 2.8 is not there.

Possible solutions, 
Steal the files from a previous installation.
Use a utility such as uniextractor to unpack the installer.

You do need a Windows Gimp 2.10 that supports 32 bit and the latest (fixed) Gimp package gimp-2.10.0-setup-2.exe works.

As well as the lqr files, a 32 bit intl.dll is needed. I took one from a 32 bit gimp 2.8 installation.

All-in-all, these files go in your Gimp 2.10 profile C:\Users\your-name\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins
gimp-lqr-plugin.exe liblqr-1-0.dll plug_in_lqr_iter.exe intl.dll and if needed batch-gimp-lqr.scm goes in scripts.

Works here: Win10, Gimp 2.10.0 screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/vSfBAm9.jpg

  Color to transparency
Posted by: Christoph_T - 05-16-2018, 02:32 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Hello together,

since some years now I am painting with Gimp 2. (2.8.22 latest).
Mostly I am doing repaints for flightsims like P3D and X-Plane:
X-Plane: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/fo...nt-1238872  
FSX/P3D: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/sh...nting-room

Recently I moved to Gimp 2:10 which has some great new tools.
One thing that I miss however is the tool "color to transparency" which was really great to create nice overlays.
I know that there is the tool color to alpha but sadly it doesn't work as well for me Sad
The new maps are kind of washed out. With blending out the a white tone for example all other colors are also more greynish than with the "color to transparency tool".

I would be very pleased if anybody could help me out to find a workaround to get the same results as with the old tool.
Maybe there the is also a way to get the old tool back to work in 2.10?

Many thanks in advance for any advice,

  DDS plugin for BC7 format

Is there a way to use the "Intel Texture Works Plugin for Photoshop" in Gimp?

I have tried the "Gimp_Ps_plugin_support" , but no results.

  Export Quality
Posted by: uchajk - 05-16-2018, 02:10 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

is there a way to set export quality to .JPG to default value?
I know I can save default then load it, but I would like to minimize amount of clicks/keyboard strokes.
In other words, I would like to have export quality slider set to 70 every time I click export.

First script to use new APIs in Gimp 2.10 (at last, the APi to stroke paths in "line" mode...). More or less a rewritten neon-path.


At the usual place. Enjoy.

  ASCII art (in a very loose sense)
Posted by: rich2005 - 05-16-2018, 11:34 AM - Forum: Other graphics software - Replies (1)

The recent post on editing an ASCII chart made me pull out this old-ish editor, javE 

It will output a gif so you can open in GIMP to refine it Wink

Now, what did I do with that old dot-matrix printer, the sideways program (anyone remember that from spreadsheets) and the stack of fan-fold paper.

  Copy/Paste Layers from one Project to another?
Posted by: Cyrus - 05-16-2018, 05:57 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Noob here. I was wondering if it's possible to take a Layer I have in one project file (.xcf) and drop it into another. Like copy/paste, but with Layers.

Thank you

  Deselect Not Working in 2.10
Posted by: drutgat - 05-16-2018, 02:46 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

I am new to this forum, and look forward to learning a lot here - you all seem to be very knowledgeable.

I have started using GIMP (2.10) in the last few days, resuming my acquaintanceship with graphics software after a break of several years.

All was going well - was practicing cloning, and a few other things - when the deselect command stopped working (when I tried both Select-None, and Shift-Ctrl-A).

I have been working with different layers, or only one layer.

I just read a thread on this forum by Ofnuts  ( Painless Use Of Selection Tools ) in which Ofnuts talks about the advantages of saving changes to channels, so that is useful to know about, but I would like to be able to deselect.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

  Opening an image and viewing preview
Posted by: blockerw - 05-15-2018, 09:35 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

when i first open gimp and then go to "open" and open a file with photos in it and then click on any particular photo i do not get a preview of that photo.  the message is "cannot create preview".  this function worked on my old gimp, but since i down loaded 2.10 this function is not available.  i have windows 10.  i think this problem may have something to do with windows and i have tried to solve the problem through "settings" and "folder" options, but without any luck.  if anyone has a suggestion i would appreciate it.  thanks.
