  Gimp Python Fu Problems
Posted by: ajs52698 - 09-15-2018, 01:25 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (7)

I'm interested in accessing the plugins from the Procedural Database outside of a registered function and am wondering if this is possible and if it isn't, why? Thanks.

  Bizarre failure to combine animated GIF with static image
Posted by: HavingTooMuchFun - 09-14-2018, 03:38 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I tried to use this gif that has a transparent background:

[Image: no%20black_zpsedzkkhav.gif]

to make an animated spout on a whale photo. It seemed like I should be able to use the whale photo as a background and the gif would run on top of it. When I did this keeping it as "replace," the whale flashed on and off and then the gif played. When I tried "combine," the spout did run over the whale image, BUT, the transparent background had changed into a white background:

[Image: white%20cropped_zpsqvhuvukv.gif]

I don't know whether to laugh or cry! What happened here? What obvious issue am I missing? Please tell me I don't have to make 42 layers of the whale image and merge them down with the spout layers!!

  Is there a control to check or uncheck all the eyeballs?
Posted by: HavingTooMuchFun - 09-14-2018, 01:16 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I'm working on a 67-frame animated gif, and... you can see why I'm hoping there's a way to check or uncheck ALL the eyeballs simultaneously! Or any kind of work-around at all? I'm spending more time clicking eyeballs than actually creating!   Sad Sad Sad

  Guides as a template
Posted by: al.da.drone - 09-14-2018, 07:38 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

Just wondering if you can have the centre guides as a template rather than setting up manually everytime I use Gimp. I have set up 12x 12 inch template but the guides never show...
Any suggestions.

  Transparency under Gimp2.10.6
Posted by: carmen - 09-13-2018, 09:24 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (10)

Having just upgraded from 2.8.14 to 2.10.6, I have met a surprise (for me) in working with painting tools on layers with wholly transparent pixels:
* under 2.8, choosing mode 'darken only', 'soft light', etc., the brush worked only over the already 'painted' pixels, skipping those with full tansparency--never painted or previously deleted.
* under 2.10.6, the effect on painted pixels is as expected, BUT tansparent pixels get filled as per mode 'normal'.
QUESTION 1: is this effect configurable? i.e., I cannot pretend to understand most of the new features--maybe I am missing something?
QUESTION 2: if it IS a new, unavoidable feature, HOW DO OTHERS FEEL ABOUT IT? I find it
* counter-intuitive: how do you lighten/darken WHAT ISN'T THERE?
* no end of a bore to lock transparency to change the color of a small spot (without bleeding out of the drawing), and then unlock to edit the boundary with transparency. In fact, it is almost as bad as editing a masked layer--endlessly checking/unchecking 'edit mask'. 
On the other hand, some features (so far) are fine: loading time, memory load, BLENDING TOOL...
Any suggestions would appreciated. Thanks!

  Re: Beautify Plugin
Posted by: catz - 09-13-2018, 05:11 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (3)

I downloaded the newest version of Gimp for Windows 10 and I can't figure out how to get this awesome plugin called Beautify installed in the new version of GIMP 2.10.6. I love this plugin and would like to use it on the new version. If someone could please help step by step with any screenshots provided I would appreciate it very much.

  (Noob) How do you make a selection from the Free Select tool??
Posted by: Audrey Hossain - 09-13-2018, 04:21 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

This might sound a bit dumb, but I just can't create a selection using the lasso tool. Tutorials on YouTube tells me to press enter or double click after I've finished selecting an area using the free select tool, but that doesn't work, instead it just resets the free select tool. I can use the path tool to create selections, but for some reason the free select tool is not working for me. Has the keys changed for version 2.10.6 of GIMP?

  Looking to get a hold of a plugin
Posted by: ThimbleFire - 09-12-2018, 09:42 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi, I've been following along with a tutorial and I'm right at the end, all I need is a plugin called 'Fuse Layers', but I can't get a hold of it since Gimp's plugin site went away.

I'm completely new to Gimp and don't know if there are any alternative plugins or features that merge multiple layers into a single spritesheet.

It's pretty unlikely, but if anyone has a download of Fuse Layers I'd be really grateful if they'd share it.  Heart Or if anyone can offer an alternate solution (that doesn't include manually dragging them into position), that would be great.

  Foreground Select Tool -> Engines Inactive
Posted by: nelo - 09-12-2018, 07:11 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Hello all,

I wonder why in Gimp 2.10.6 / flatpak ( and previous Gimp 2.10 s) I cannot choose the "engine" when in foreground select.
What prerequisites are necessary for that? Special kind of photo? Missing libraries?
