  resizing selection
Posted by: Terry50 - 01-06-2019, 08:23 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi,  I used to be able to use the transform button and have the selection move coinciding horizontal & vertical at the same time, if I dragged at the right point.  It won't do that anymore.  One side or another.   shift T
 There are white turned squares.
There are squares at the corners.
There are smaller squares centered on each side.

The small squares used to do both sides equally.
Not any more.
Do you know what happened?
Thank you,
Terry.  Smile

  Weighted Blend
Posted by: Animusmontus - 01-05-2019, 05:40 PM - Forum: Gimp 2.8 questions - Replies (4)

Is there a plugin or a means to weight a shaped blend to certain predetermined points instead of the normal center of the shape?

  fixing faded picture
Posted by: Running_late - 01-04-2019, 07:37 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

I have a 50+ year old color photo that has faded badly, now scanned in.   Mainly, the picture is just yellowish.  The greens do not look much green.  The blue does not look much like blue.  There is some red.  

Is there a way to say 'just make the color more vivid'?

  Gimp craashes in LM 19.1
Posted by: Yumi - 01-04-2019, 07:32 AM - Forum: Linux and other Unixen - Replies (3)

Upgraded to Linux Mint 19.1 last week. Now if I want to open a file in Gimp the whole system crashes. Have to restart completely. Am not sure that it has to do with the new version but it looks likely.
Uninstalled Gimp and removed all directories and files. Installed Gimp 2.8 and 2.10 from repositories but the same thing happens in both versions.
Any advice on what else I could do?

  Open a file in Gimp from the command line
Posted by: dataweary - 01-04-2019, 05:07 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)


I'd like to open a file in Gimp as part of a shell script on OS X Sierra (I use the Partha Bagchi build).

If Gimp is not launched, it works perfectly with the following command:

open McGimp-2.10.8.app --args ~/Documents/Archive/scanpic.jpg

But I don't know how to open a file with the script when Gimp is already launched. In this case, Gimp comes to the forefront but the file is not opened.

Any idea how to achieve that?

  hatch image
Posted by: denzjos - 01-03-2019, 01:55 PM - Forum: Tutorials and tips - Replies (4)

When I have to hatch a technical drawing, I have to draw a line, copy the layer and move the layer (multiple times). I thought a macro creator would be usefull and I've tried the Pulovers Macro Creator (open source). I've made a macro and it is satisfying. Before starting the macro one have to make sure the copy layer is tranparent and set the thichness of the pencil to 1.Then start with an empty image.The macro draw a new image, draw a 45 degree line, copy the layer and move it to the left. This is done up to 150 times. After the macro is ended, all one have to do is make the backgrond layer invisible and merge the visible layers (Image / Merge Visisble Layers). One can then copy and paste the transparent layer and then move the pasted layer to the right to fill out the empty space. Then it is advisible to crop the layer (Layer / Layer to Image Size). In attachment, the macro and the result. If the macro give a fault result on your computer, then change the sleep times. The macro is made for a keyboard with a keypad. It is possible that this does not work on a portable. Then change the Numpadx to x(where x is a number / press right mouse button to change) . I've made also a macro that draw lines with Pulovers Macro Creator but copy layers is much faster.   


I don't know how to post a file here so I'v made an image of the code :

  exporting pdf vs. jpeg
Posted by: shortmort37 - 01-03-2019, 01:29 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

I'm attempting to make a banner with two color background, with text containing two different colors - but, with different fonts (in different layers). All told, there are 10 layers, one with zero opacity - I used it as an underlying guide to construct the banner.

When I export it as a jpeg, everything is aligned perfectly - but of course, when you zoom you get the staircasing you expect from a bitmap:

[Image: jpg_banner.jpg]

When I export it as a pdf, it zooms perfectly, again as you would expect from a vector-based image. However, There is some blurring at the border of the two background colors, as if they are blended from misalignment; and there is whitespace at the right and bottom edges. Here is a jpeg snapshot of the pdf, where I've outlined the artifacts:

[Image: pdf_banner.jpg]

When I rendered the pdf, I chose these options:

[Image: export.jpg]

Is there anything I can do differently, to have the pdf render in appearance as the jpeg?

I should add there's issues with font alignment from the various layers. Look at the "!" that trails "HERE". They are different fonts (and different layers) - they align at the base of the text in the jpeg, but not in the pdf.

Is this a bug with GIMP?

  Start up and use Gimp 2.10.8 ver 2 Samj
Posted by: Pat625 - 01-03-2019, 01:02 AM - Forum: Windows - Replies (6)

Downloaded the ver 2 as understood too many problems with the first.   Initial start up OK but as plug ins and scm added more problems.  Start up interrupted by statements of no function known, hit any key to continue and some that hang for a long time before continuing.  Have Demo.exe that appears and must be deleted before continuing.  When start up finally finished, all looks OK, but plugins that were added on first start up only stay until computer turned off.  When Gimp started again, go through all the same start up problems but the added plug ins are not there.  It is though they were never added by using Edit/Preferences/Plugins.  I have not had this problem with any versions of Gimp before.  I have completely erased it, re downloaded repeatedly but continue with this problem.  If the added plug ins are not in the original system and profile folders, they disappear.  This goes also if a subfolder has been added, it disappears also.  They seem to work properly when they are present.  Am I missing some files?

Has anyone else had this problem?  I tried reporting it, had a few replies, but then I had notices that their server would not accept messages from me.  Asked for help but no reply.

Any suggestions?

I am using Windows 10.  64 bit  Have Gimp 2.8.22 reg version still on my computer.  I have installed the Samj Gimp to the desk top to separate it to another directory.
