Hi. This is my latest creation. I used Gimp 2.10.10 to do this. Do you like it?  Undecided

Hidden Filters

After searching for the Erase Every Other Row filter in Filters - Distorts and did not find it, I searched for it using the Help - Plug - in Browser, but did not find it again.

However, for stubbornness, I checked the shortcut by the "/" key and typed the initial part of the filter name (Erase) and voila! I found it.

  • Would you like to make this filter re-appear in the menu list (Filters - Distorts- Erase Every Other Row)?
  • How do I know which other filters don't appear in the menus but are still active in Gimp?
Thank you.

  "Allow resizing" missing in Drop Shadow dialog
Posted by: badger - 05-29-2019, 06:02 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I'm fairly new to GIMP and have version 2.10.10. When trying to add a drop shadow to an image there is no check box for "Allow resizing" like it used to have on previous versions and as shown in the help file. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

  Painted and saved my original image in error
Posted by: Tiny Pixie - 05-28-2019, 08:37 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Complete newbie here - so hello to all and please be patient with me.

I've followed some guides to remove the background from portraits starting with, opening it in gimp 2.10, adding an alpha channel and then duplicating the layer.

Several hours and saves later(!), I realised that the original image had various brush strokes on it which I did without realising. If I use the eraser, it removes all the image layers, not just the paint. Hope this all makes sense.

Is there a way to return the original image back to how it was, without the brush-strokes?

With luck, it's just something simple... Thank you.

  How do I add a new dock? (Problem solved.)
Posted by: Spazmataz - 05-27-2019, 07:54 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello Gimp-forum.net! Smile  This is my first post. I'm brand new to Gimp. I'm transitioning to Gimp from Photoshop for obvious reasons. I'm using Gimp version 2.10.10.  

How do I add a new dock?

Presently there is a dock on the left-hand side under the toolbox. There are also two additional docks on the right-hand side. But what if I wanted, say, two docks on the left-hand side or three docks on the right-hand side? Is there any easy way to do this? (or even a hard way?)

I understand how to create a new tab within a dock (Windows/Dockable Dialogs), and I understand how to move/drag a tab from one dock to another dock (or to its own window), but what if I want a whole new dock?

I apologize if this is an easy thing to do. I've done my due diligence by searching this forum and by googling. But maybe my google-fu is waning. I'm not getting anywhere.

  How do I change the color OF Gimp? - SOLVED
Posted by: pambesteder - 05-27-2019, 05:00 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I downloaded the new GIMP.  But it is black and I cannot see the icons.

HOW do I make the interface for GIMP lighter, or white, like the other one was?

This is very hard on my eyes.

Please help soon.

Thank you.

SOLVED:  Went into PREFERENCES and changed it.

  Newbie Screenshot question
Posted by: Kathleen - 05-27-2019, 02:13 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I'm starting to use Gimp after having used Paint Shop Pro for years. After an update to my laptop, PSP appears to work OK, but I can't save anything. So here I am, learning Gimp.

I can't figure out how to take a screenshot and paste it into Gimp. Tried a Google search, but couldn't find anything other than screenshots from within Gimp.

  How to smooth jagged lines
Posted by: Mark lar - 05-27-2019, 08:47 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I'm pretty new to GIMP and I'm drawing just plain black lines on a grid with snap to grid enabled, and I want to try and make the diagonal lines smooth like the others and remove the pixelated and raggedy edges. Any help would be appreciated.
