  Can't Open GIMP
Posted by: Peter B - 11-08-2018, 09:31 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I just downloaded GAIP and GIMP help and have done the install thing for both.  No matter what I do I am unable to open them.  All it wants to do is the set up thing again.
Any help is appreciated.

  "Uncrop" a drawing to restore part of a person?
Posted by: randomystick - 11-08-2018, 04:17 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I have a digital drawing of a person whose top part of her hair + left shoulder is partially cut off, as shown:

How do I "uncrop" the image by making gimp restore the parts that got seemingly "cropped" off the picture?

I tried brute-forcing it by using the clone tool + heal tool, with limited success:

Heal Selection (from Synthesiser) doesn't work well, probably because it has nothing to sample from the top of the part I need restoring
Uncrop (from Synthesiser) doesn't work at all, it just adds a transparent border around my image

  A few basic quick fire questions...
Posted by: enginestar - 11-08-2018, 12:11 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

I've been using Gimp for sometime now.
I think I am doing some things wrong.

I have a few quick fire questions I was hoping you expert guys could help with...

- Where is the hand tool?
A tool to move the screen around - not the image.
In Photoshop it's called the hand tool

- Cutting out background of objects: Use paths tool, select from path, invert, add alpha channel, delete.
Works a treat.
But... are there any other tools that help quicken this?

- I make a path around an object. How can I hide the path but bring it up later? If that's not possible, how do I just get rid of it?

- Similarly, how do I get rid of ants around a picture?

- What's the best way to copy 2 layers from one picture to another?

- Opening more images after first.
You can't just drag in. You have to drag into the toolbar.
Even though I know I have to do - it still gets on my nerves having to do!
I JUST want to drag in!
Is this something I have to live with?

- How do I get rid of ants around text?


I'm assuming the above are quick fire questions.
Happy to get just a pointer to somewhere where I can learn.

  Fonts loading too long
Posted by: SpringSeabastial - 11-07-2018, 08:12 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (6)

I'm having an issue with fonts. Unlike most other posts I've found, my GIMP starts up just fine. It when I actually try and use the text tool that the program takes too long to load fonts. I've already been waiting for about an hour it feels like. Can someone help me?

  How to batch open multiple PDF files and batch export them again as PDF files
Posted by: kasioumis - 11-07-2018, 07:35 PM - Forum: Scripting questions - Replies (2)


I've been reading a bit about the gimp batch mode and gimp scripts but I'm not sure what I'm trying to do is possible and I was looking for some guidance.

I have multiple PDF files (let's say 100). I want to batch open them with GIMP (specifying the resolution - DPI) and maybe even more options (Anti-aliasing, the layer etc). Then I want to directly export them as PDF again (specifying the export options - apply layer masks, convert bitmaps and omit hidden layers).

Is this possible in the first place? And if yes, could you please give me some pointers as to how I can achieve that?

Thank you very much in advance!

Shocked Bucket fill is tinting my entire image
Posted by: HavingTooMuchFun - 11-07-2018, 06:06 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (19)

[Image: 5f02e79b-f984-4e92-be63-c2c36057c012-ori...fit=bounds]
The upper image is the original; the bottom image is my attempt to bucket-fill with tan replacing the gray. This is very close to the minimum threshold to eliminate all of the dark gray, and as you can see, the tan that I bucket filled with is overlaying the white as well… not REPLACING the white, but mixing with it. This has happened recently with a variety of different images, with a variety of different colors both in the images and with the attempted bucket-fills; the result is as if I was looking at the image through tinted glasses, rather than the bucket fill just working on the selected color. I must have accidentally changed some sort of setting… does anyone have any idea what it might be?

Sad Missing settings on gradient tools
Posted by: CSCreations - 11-07-2018, 12:41 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (9)

Ok so I bit the Bullet and upgraded to the newest version of gimp a few month back. I am getting used to it Wink , however, I used to use the Gradient tool mostly Brushed aluminum, to make a diamond texture the easy way, with the help of a tutorial I had found. Now however I am finding I can no longer do that. There used to be a setting for additive or difference, which I found difference still under Mode, however with that guide string attached I have not figured out how to change the settings to where I can keep going in a circular motion drawing from the center of a circle for instance to the outer edge one stroke after another in rapid succession (it used to make some pretty interesting designs) until I had enough contrast to where it was almost black, but when inverted it literally looked like a diamond. Can someone help me figure out how to get the same affect in gimp 2.10 please because I need to make a tear shaped diamond and for the life of me can't figure it out.  Using windows 7 home premium  
Below is a screenshot of what it would have looked like before inverting the picture.

Thanks for the help in advance.

  New Align not working for paths?
Posted by: carmen - 11-05-2018, 08:59 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (3)

Under my previous Gimp (2.8) I could select both paths and layers for alignment--but under Gimp10, the alignment selector seems to bypass visible paths. 
This loss of functionality, is by design? Or am I missing something? (besides a tool I liked...)

  Shear tool and isometric question
Posted by: grit - 11-05-2018, 02:35 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (8)

When I create any shape, for example rectangle or circle, and then use shear tool, how can I know what is perfect isometric transform ?

I use shear magnitue along Y but I never know what is true isometric value of it.
