Photo Wacom tablet with Gimp?
Posted by: Nateart - 04-04-2017, 06:55 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I have succeeded in getting my Wacom intuous 3 6x8 pen tablet installed into Windows 10
Is this functional in Gimp?... like varying line width by pressure applied?
If so, how do I set it up in Gimp?

I've done illustration for books, magazines, puzzles etc. since 1970... take a look if you like =

  User interface color
Posted by: ldubia - 04-01-2017, 04:33 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have seen several YouTube videos featuring GIUMP with a dark grey interface.  I am wondering how to change from white to the dark grey.

  Make an animation from a video
Posted by: rich2005 - 03-31-2017, 09:15 AM - Forum: Tutorials and tips - Replies (1)

To put this in Other graphics software or not... The ultimate object is to use the result in Gimp..it is a tip

A sometimes asked question is: How to convert a video - something.avi / .mp4 - to individual images in order to make an animated gif.

A common reply is use the Gimp plugin GAP. The video extractor in GAP sometimes fails on modern video formats so here is an alternative using a command line application FFMPEG. 

Linux users can easily install FFMPEG, for Windows users, a convenient way is by installing Imagemagick which comes with FFMEG.

If you do not want to watch the video explanation which has a bit more detail, the basic command is; 

ffmpeg -i inputfile.avi -f image2 imagename-%07d.png

To see how to reduce the number of frames and a demo, the video is;  https://youtu.be/PXxECG_6YvA duration 4.5 minutes

  Gradient implementation and opacity questions
Posted by: jminternelia - 03-30-2017, 01:56 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello all, new here, and fairly new to Gimp.

Without overly complicating it, here what I am trying to achieve.

The image below is something I am trying to replicate. I'm going to create a wind dial for Rainmeter. However, there are two things I'm having trouble with, and hoping maybe you all can help me out.

As you can see the image is broken down into some type of gradient. How would I go about implementing that sort of gradient in my own circle? I am not using any actual part of the original image, so I am using it's size as a guide. Is there some way to divide a circle into 24 equal parts and bucket fill each one?

And here's the second one, that I think I already know an answer to, but as you can see below, the circle also doesn't have full opacity, meaning, the color values you see aren't what they would look like against my wallpaper, which is basically a replication of the "grid" background. Thus my question is, is there some kind of "smart" way to determine the color values shown below but what they would look like either with the black background removed OR if they were 100% opaque?

The end goal is to create an asset of higher resolution and quality, but with accurate color values and opacity reproduced by hand.  

Hope I explained correctly.

  Scale image or layer
Posted by: eingram25 - 03-29-2017, 11:35 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

When I load a file and want to reduce the size, whether I scale the image or scale the layer, I still end up with reduced image and large boundary. ( I guess that's what that is)
See the attached screen shot.
When I use view: fit image in window, it still sees the transparency.
I'd like to get rid of the large transparency and just be left with the picture (reduced in scale)

  Convert Mode and Scale
Posted by: Just Fred - 03-29-2017, 10:30 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I need to do the following to all open tif images in Gimp.

change mode from indexed color to grayscale
scale image to half size (from 9912x7008 to 4956x3504 and resolution from 600 pixels per inch to 300)
save to xcf format using current file name plus a -300 suffix

I have a couple hundred files in 25 folders to do. Doing one at a time is slow going. Any way to speed up the process?

Thanks Fred

  Use of Image window zoom function
Posted by: Pat625 - 03-27-2017, 01:25 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

The zoom function has several preset % which are nice, but I often would like a percent not listed.  Is there any way that I can make a 75%  or 80% that stays permanently.  I can add it for an image temporarily but it seems to disappear. Huh
