  Drag and Drop Images
Posted by: Wyrx - 01-27-2018, 07:24 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I've been using GIMP for 5 months now and have been slowly learning the tricks and nuances of this image tool. Seemingly overnight I lost the ability to drag and drop images onto GIMP and instead have to resort to Ctrl-Alt-O if I want to add images to a pre-existing image. I was hoping for general support since I've looked everywhere and nothing seems to correct this issue.

http://www.gimpusers.com/forums/gimp-use...-drop-jpgs is troubleshooting if I can only drag and drop a single image and no others appear as well.

I simply can't load a single image at all unless using Ctrl-O or Alt-Ctrl-O.

  Detect Gimp Version
Posted by: jojohaligo - 01-26-2018, 10:23 PM - Forum: OSX - Replies (2)

Okay, I might not get it, but I want to detect the version of Gimp I'm using - seems simple enough right?
But there is no menu choice to do so. Such as Help > About

Yes, I'm using OS High Sierra. I understand that the current download is stock without add-ons.
Is version info an add-on?

Here's a screen capture of the Gimp interface.

  printing trouble
Posted by: ray andrews - 01-26-2018, 06:32 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi all:

I used to be able to print from gimp but haven't done so for quite some time, and things seem to have got broken since then. Printer indicates that data is being received but after a minute or so the printer just gives up with no indication of what's wrong. Printer is canon mg5220 which works fine from all other applications. From what I've seen on the web, printing issues with gimp are so common that the usual solution seems to be to save the file and use something else to print. Is there a fix for this? Running Debian stable.

  Big Text in/with animal Shape
Posted by: n4x - 01-26-2018, 05:14 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (8)


I want to make a big poster with a giant text in the form of an animal or with the shape of an animal inside of it.

Is this possible with gimp2 or can you maybe recommend a way to make this happen?
I need it as a present and als the copy-shops in my area are unable to create this, they need it to be prepared als img Wink

  Quartering simple strokes
Posted by: Ofnuts - 01-26-2018, 11:36 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (6)

Given a stroke with 4 simple Bezier splines:


but before you(*) jump with joy, I don't know yet how to compute the intersection of these curves (the corners of the squares), assuming it is anatically possible.

Otherwise, the algorithm is:
  • take two opposite sides: the guide strokes and the remaining sides, the shape strokes
  • extract from the two existing shape strokes the angle of incidence on the guide stroke and the relative distance of the tangent points to the distance of the two anchors
  • with this data you can map either shape stroke along the guides at some percentage: compute the two anchors, and given angle and distance, compute the two tangents
  • so do the computation for the same percent form the two shapes, and interpolate the tangents using the percentage: two anchors, two tangents, you have a line between the two guides.
  • rinse and repeat

  How do I do these things...
Posted by: enginestar - 01-25-2018, 09:45 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Need some advice on some things...

- I want to bend a layer. Not sure what to click and best way to do.
I've clicked around but cant see anything to bend. I can change perspective, but that doesnt do what I want.

- To an existing image... add a white strip, add a shadow around the white strip, then add text on top of the white layer.
I kinda got this figured I think, but wanted to know the best recommended way
