  Selection Tool Glitch
Posted by: DavidCoy - 07-07-2018, 02:00 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (8)


In the video link above, I demonstrate a glitch I've found with the selection tools.

The first canvas is a 1920x1080 px canvas, which works perfectly fine. I then open a 17x11 in. canvas (for some reason the file menu doesn't show up on the recording), and I get this weird blacking out effect when I try and use the selection tools. 

This happens on any canvas besides the default 1920x1080 px canvas. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

  Question about sRGB color profiles
Posted by: Ben321 - 07-06-2018, 09:35 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have a camera who's color profile is called sRGB and Gimp has its own color profile called sRGB. When I load a picture from my camera into Gimp, it asks me to keep or convert. Depending on which I pick (keep original sRGB color profile, or convert to Gimp's sRGB) the image DOES LOOK DIFFERENT. This tells me that the color profiles are not identical. I thought sRGB was the name of an international standard for converting linear values (as recorded by your camera's image sensor) into perceptual values (the values between 0 and 255 are proportional to the human eye's perception of brightness), in much the same way that things like USB is a standard (in this case a standard protocol for communication between a computer and a peripheral). So therefore anything using sRGB should be precisely compatible with anything else using sRGB, meaning that "keep" and "convert" should be exactly identical operations in this case. But clearly that's not what's happening.

Can anybody here explain why this is happening?

Does the 2.10.4 update my existing Gimp 2.10 ?

and how do i make sure my also existing 2.8 stays untouched ?

  NormalMap.exe Application Unable to Start
Posted by: JohnSandlin - 07-06-2018, 04:21 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

Windows 10 (1803) build 17134.112 64 bit
Gimp 2.10.4 (and Gimp 2.10.2 - but I upgraded) 

I'm getting an error as Gimp runs it's PlugIn Scan on Startup where it tells me: normalmap.exe - Application Error "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application."

This started when I tried to actually use NormalMap.exe from the Filters | Map drop down. I haven't used it since I was using Gimp 2.8 - where it did work.

I downloaded the normalmap.exe package again - gimp-normalmap-win64-1.2.3
I installed that per the readme.txt copying the dll files to the bin directory and normalmap.exe to the plug-ins - and overwrote the versions already there.

I still get the error about normalmap.exe being unable to start. So I found instructions to build a normal map manually and took care of that project.

But now everytime I start Gimp, I still get that error. I've tried uninstalling Gimp entirely. Deleting the directories in my C:\Program Files\ folder and the AppData folders. Eventually I even scrubbed gimp from the registry. But everytime I reinstall Gimp the Normal map error comes back - even though I don't even want to reinstall it. I also scrubbed all the references to NormalMap that I can find. I also removed the GTK directories.

Somewhere the system wants to find normalmap.exe and run it. But it doesn't run on my setup, so I want to remove it. And there I'm stuck and need help.

  How to adjust brush fade to a path automaticly?
Posted by: TheFunnySide - 07-05-2018, 02:07 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (9)

I want to stroke a path with a dynamic brush and i want the fade lenght of my brush to be set to the path length.
I can do this by hand, but this is tedious. I need something automatic.

thx in advance

  How do I make this?
Posted by: justawfulgamer - 07-05-2018, 12:20 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

Can someone show me how to make this image? I've attempted it with mixed results. I think my methods aren't correct. If someone can show me step by step, then I can replicate it. 

So I basically just need a rectangle with curved edges, then put an image of .the arrow on top of it, then put the text under it.

When I do it, I get some strange stuff happening that's really hard to explain.

  re: Octave and Wavelet Sharpen
Posted by: Daniel V. - 07-05-2018, 04:19 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (4)

I've seen a video that describes Octave and Wavelet Sharpen but I don't see them in the tools. The video was for 2.8.

Are these plugins or no longer used in 2.10?

Thank You

  Wacom Tablet Not showing in Input Devices
Posted by: gaspuch62 - 07-05-2018, 02:08 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

I'm currently using GIMP 2.10.2 on Windows 10 Pro with a Wacom Bamboo CTL-470. I downloaded the latest driver from the website, it was a legacy device.

I can use the tablet to manipulate the mouse cursor and the wacom preferences (limiting to one monitor, or pen mode vs tablet mode) do work. When I try to use it in Gimp, I get no pressure opacity, or any dynamics, and the buttons don't do what they're supposed to do. When I look at the Configure input devices menu all I see is the Core Pointer.

If there's a thread for this specific issue, link me to it.
