  I cannot find newly downloaded photos (jpgs) Solved
Posted by: sallyanne - 07-05-2018, 01:01 AM - Forum: Windows - Replies (3)

Photos I have downloaded,(I know they have downloaded because their file name is in the task bar) I cannot find on my computer.
I have been doing this forever and am reasonably well versed in knowing where I save them to and where to look for them. I also tried the download folder to no avail. Where could they be going?
Most of you would know I have a restoring site on Facebook and download and up load photos from there, (So I am allowed to download). Even after downloading them 2 , 3 times I cannot find one version. What could be happening?
Ps. I tried from another site and I could find the photo I downloaded.

Says ( When I did a search for todays files) their in the place where I thought they were but Gimp cannot find them. Nothing since 9 hours ago

By the way I have closed and restarted gimp

  Animated Business Card Effect
Posted by: CruelHellCry - 07-05-2018, 12:36 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I'm fairly new to GIMP, but I am simply awed by it.

I have used the internet and with the tutorials that I have found, I have been able to get 3D text, animated GIFS, and glitter on photos.

But what I am really trying to do is to get an animated business card.  For example, I have created 3 JPGs, opened them as layers, and exported them out as a GIF.  The business logo and business info is the same, only the phones on each business card are different.

I took three of these JPGs and added glitter to the photos and was able to export each JPG as a GIF and get the sparkle working on the photos.  However, I want to have the three JPGs/GIFs combined into an GIF so that I can have the three GIFS looping showing different photos, but also the animated sparkle/glitter on the photos.

How can I do this?

When I opened the three GIFs, it created the different layers and the quality of the photos were horrible.  So, I think that while what I want to do is possible, I have not found a way to do this yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  PostRotateCrop.py in Gimp 2.10
Posted by: payasam - 07-04-2018, 04:45 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (6)

PostRotateCrop.py is available in Gimp 2.8 and is considerably faster than PostRotateCrop.scm. In Gimp 2.10, however, the Python version does not even show up although it is in the plug-ins folder. I have only tried what I use in 2.8 as I do not know if there is a new one for 2.10.

  fonts load slow
Posted by: eingram25 - 07-04-2018, 02:58 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

I'm still using version 2.8.22.
I had the answer to this but don't remember.
Which file do we get rid of to cure the problem of fonts searching slowly when gimp is opened (every time).
Thanks in advance for helping an old geezer.

It seems that the thumbnails folder location has been changed since Gimp 2.10 came out.
Please advise as to where the folder is located for the following OS's:-
1. Ubuntu Linux
2. MacOS
3. Windows 10

  Bulk remove GIMP comments
Posted by: nelo - 07-04-2018, 09:28 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.10 - Replies (2)

Hello all,

Is there any way to remove GIMP comments from files via script?
I have quite a lot of them and opening and  removing each single one would be rather tedious work.

Thanks for ideas

  How To Remove Dotted Yellow Lines on Expand Canvas?
Posted by: abrogard - 07-04-2018, 01:47 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Sorry to keep coming back with my minor queries - honestly I'm making progress and soon should be able to motor along without bothering anyone...

But:  I made an image by pasting onto one image another taken from elsewhere.

 The second was bigger than the first.

So I found that menu choice to expand the canvas to fit.  Exactly what I wanted.  So I did it.

And it worked lovely.  But it shows dotted yellow indicating where the previous canvas edges where.

I thought saving it might get rid of them or 'select none'  but neither did.

One simple keystroke somewhere I'm sure...  but where?

  Can I Change Default Appearance?
Posted by: abrogard - 07-03-2018, 09:19 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I just downloaded and set up 2.10.2 on this machine and the appearance was all this modern trendy black screen with white letters.  No good to me.

Found the way to change it to 'grey' or 'white' and chose white.

That's about 75% okay.  All the tool  icons are too faint to see without straining.

Can I somehow switch back to the old fashioned appearance?

  Cropping around hair...
Posted by: bcripps - 07-03-2018, 06:43 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

Hey Gimpers:
I’ve been using Gimp for a couple of years, on and off, mostly for layering photos and using a layer mask for cropping. I still have trouble cropping around hair, especially around woman’s hair that is always curly and wispy. I struggle with extreme magnification and one of the fuzzy brushes trying to pick out individual locks of hair and depending on the background shade, sometimes it works. But most times I end up with a woman’s head that looks like it has been cut out with kindergarten scissors.
Any advise or hints about cropping around hair would be much appreciated. Or maybe a way of filling in the background so it looks natural. Or anything else.
Much thanks,
