  How to create an ASCII-Drawing - for a Entire relationship modelo of a db
Posted by: sayhello - 05-15-2018, 08:10 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

  flatpak gimp 2.10 and darktable
Posted by: frpatte - 05-15-2018, 08:00 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (1)


I installed gimp 2.10 with flatpak because this gimp version is not yet available on my distro.

I want to call darktable to open raw files, but the only plugin appearing in the import images tab is "raw-file-placeholder".

file-darktable is furnished in the plug-ins but no way is given to use it instead of raw-file-placeholder. How can I configure gimp to use the darktable plugin?

Thank You

  2 common errors in this new version. My fault?
Posted by: AxelEurope - 05-14-2018, 11:02 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (3)

Hello everyone,

I've been using Gimp (2.8) for many years and just a week ago I decided to move to the new version 2.10, I like the new design and that there's several tools that have been simplified or compacted into 1. However, I usually have 2 very common and uncomfortable bugs that didn't happen to me with the previous version.

I tried to search Online (in case it was a common problem before version 2.8 or something) for help to solve them but I didn't find anything that could help me to solve them, so I decided to register in the forum and ask for help. I hope it will help me and future users who have the same problem.

  • Enter Location doesn't works.

No matter how many images I try, since I jumped to version 2.10 I can no longer import any images from its URL.

I always end with this error message.

[Image: VqdROK.jpg]

  • Copy + Past an exterior Image doesn't works.
Normally I don't have any problem (in version 2.10) in copying an image (outside of Gimp) with the simple right button > Copy Image and then paste it into Gimp and use it as I need it, this works well until after a while.... After a while if I try to paste an image that I've just finished of copying from the Internet to paste it into Gimp I only get the piece that I copied into Gimp previously. I mean, it paste a snip I made in the Gimp application.

I thought I might need to make sure I had the copied image to be ready into the clipboard, so instead of trying to copy the image directly with the right click, I decided to use a program called Lightshot (very handy for making screenshots by the way) to crop the image, copy it to the clipboard and paste it into Gimp, but I kept pasting only the last piece I'd cut out IN Gimp.

If I try to go to an online image pasting website or even a simple image editing program like Paint right after that, I'd still would work as it should (pasting the image I've just copied or cropped with Lightshot)

The latter is probably the most annoying of the two and I have no idea how to fix it.

  Tablet detection
Posted by: nightbirds - 05-14-2018, 09:21 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Quote:hello. I just bought a new tablet and here's what happened. I opened gimp with it but the option for the tablet was greyed out. It wouldn't use my tablet as the input device. So I restarted gimp several times., I installed the update, still nothing. I deleted the input option for my tablet hoping it would reconnect correctly, but now the tablet option is just gone, even after I uninstalled and reinstalled gimp. What can i do?

  Installation error - Gimp 2.10 - gmic plugin
Posted by: LisaRH72 - 05-14-2018, 06:56 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (3)

I’llI’m Hi. 
Hoping someone can help. 
I’ve been running Gimp 2.8 with no issue & I’m now trying to install 2.10 but on loading up I get the following message

gmic_gimp_qt.exe - entry point not found

The procedure point g_file_test could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\programme files\gimp2\bin\libgmodule-2.0-0.dll

Gimp still opens but I can’t seem to install GMIC at all. 

Any help will be very much appreciated. 

Thank you

  can blurry images made in Inkscape, be fixed in Gimp ?
Posted by: Espermaschine - 05-14-2018, 01:41 PM - Forum: Other graphics software - Replies (9)

I uploaded something new and it looks blurry.

My guess is, its because not all lines are 100% aligned to the pixel grid....

There is an extension in Inkscape called 'Pixel Snap' thats supposed to fix this, but i either get an error for the whole thing or when just trying to align the straight lines, its all messed up afterwards.

Is there a way to fix the png in Gimp ?
I tried a High Pass Filter but this seems to remove all the antialiased pixels and makes the lines jaggy.

Or is this simply a resolution problem ?

  Drop-Shadow Tool causes the whole Canvas to Drop-Shadow (Windows 7)
Posted by: Cyrus - 05-13-2018, 07:55 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (4)

This is frustrating, and I don't know what is causing it.

For most of the time, Drop-Shadow tool works just fine. But for whatever reason, after a certain amount of time, it will start having this problem where no matter which Layer I select for the tool, it will cause the entire Canvas to have a Drop-Shadow, expanding the size of the Canvas and exposing transparency underneath.

This has happened to me twice, so far, with two different project files.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you

  Question: Blending image to transparent
Posted by: chhe - 05-13-2018, 02:45 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I want to blend the edges of an image so that they have a smooth transition to transparent (alpha) like the top part of the image shown in the screen shot image attached (except all around each side of the soup can). I plan on printing this on green colored paper so that it prints less and less towards the edge so that the brown carpeting in the background gradually blends into the green of the paper. I can't seem to figure out how to do this with GIMP. I am using version 2.10.0. Here are the steps I've tried so far.

1. Open the image.
2. Under layers right click the selection and click add layer mask.
3. Click the gradient tool and draw a vertical line across the image.
4. Select background color (BG) in the gradient popup that appears.
5. Then under the layers tab right click the layer and select apply layer mask.

When I do step 5 the image goes back to normal again instead of how it appears in the attached screenshot which is what I want. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I also tried using feathering as described in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DH72ceOH2I, but this isn't quite what I want as I noticed it causes the soup can in the center to become distorted and its colors faded. I want the soup can to be unaffected and only the carpet in the background to be faded. Can anybody tell me how to do what I want with GIMP?
