  Gimp 2.9.5 feature
Posted by: rich2005 - 04-25-2017, 10:22 AM - Forum: Gimp 2.9.x - Replies (2)

Just been updating my Gimp 2.9.5 (from the 'buntu ppa) 

A new feature that I can not find much about: A clipboard mask brush.

[Image: ANyPvw7.jpg]

Any ideas on use?

Edit: a few hours later
Ok. It does of course, act as a grayscale brush and take whatever colour is FG.

  Rendering an image!
Posted by: VigGimp - 04-24-2017, 04:58 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Rendering an image is something that is really tough for me. I can't seem to do it at all and need some help. I would also appreciate it if someone could do a step by step tutorial or explanation of what they did! 

The picture I need rendered is: 
[Image: .eJwNx0ESwiAMAMC_cJcQQqX0NwxlANsKQ9KT499...height=430]

I need the character to be separated from the lightning and the background if someone could do that?

  Scaling and moving
Posted by: hammsman - 04-23-2017, 09:04 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Good question for you gimpsters. Once you bring multiple images into a project, scale them to size, and position them, how does one go back to either re-scale, or move a prior object. Because the yellow and black lines surround the "last" object brought into the project. Which as long as the emphasis is on the "last" object brought into the project, re-scaling and re-positioning any prior objects are not permitted.

  Why can't i no longer remove a background?
Posted by: hammsman - 04-23-2017, 07:34 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I have been removing backgrounds on gimp for a couple years..it's old hat. You open an image, apply alpha channel, use free select tool, go around image till ants march, go to select, scroll down to path/invert...back ground is GONE...but now I can't get it to remove the background anymore. I had some old images I wanted to bring the color up on. Saved them to JPG, and today I was going to remove background...but GIMP won't remove the background...."any" idea's! Thanks

Actually, I found out what is wrong. I have pictures that I used Microsoft Publisher to put a quick dark border around each one, then saved it as a jpg image. If I try to remove the image from "inside the" border, the background , including the border will be eliminated. If I try to include the border "with" the picture, "nothing' happens, the background does not get removed...anyone know why? Seems strange!! I went through microsoft publisher to apply a border, cause it is a whole lot quicker than gimp, to place a border around an object.

  Cage Transform
Posted by: david - 04-22-2017, 10:14 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Is there any likelyhood that Cage Transform will be fixed?

I use it on rare occasions - principally for making subtle changes to facial expressions in portraits. I think I have tried all the alternatives, but for this "peculiar" use, none gives the same precise control. (Albeit, that a small amount of clean-up is usually necessary after the event.)

Exclamation TIFF to JPEG conversion kills dpi
Posted by: TheBrassGlass - 04-21-2017, 09:41 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (14)

Hey, guys;

I'm not having much luck finding anything about this online. I scan drawings with a machine that runs on Windows, save the images and upload them on a cloud image-hosting site, download them onto my Linux machine and edit them in GIMP. I recently switched to saving the images as TIFF files before uploading and transferring them over, but all of a sudden I noticed that if I convert the TIFF to JPEG, it doesn't matter what the resolution is, GIMP automatically will change it to 72 dpi when I export the image as a JPEG.

I don't recall earlier versions of GIMP doing this, but I'm not sure as I only recently have been saving the images as TIFFs before converting them to JPEGs, whereas in the past I just saved as JPEG (I've been trying to avoid the artifacting that comes with working with JPEGs through multiple edits). So what gives? Is this a bug? Is there a patch or something I can install so that it doesn't do that anymore?

  fileing photos
Posted by: Easyed - 04-21-2017, 02:49 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Just loaded GIMP and brought up a picture from my camera but could not find a way to file it so that I can attach it to my emails.  I admit to being a little dense about computer use at times, but maybe some body can set me straight. Huh

  Set saturation and value for all pixels collectively [SOLVED]
Posted by: akgimp - 04-20-2017, 09:14 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Hello, Looks like a lively and positive forum, glad to find it.

How to set the saturation for all pixels to 100%? Likewise for value. I'm leaving hue alone.

The hue-saturation tool does not do this, as far as I can see. My evidence is this: create a new image any size, fill it entirely with hsv 215,20,45. In the color tool, use the color picker to select anywhere, which puts this color into the color tool's swatch. Slide the saturation and value to 100 each. Then in the hue-saturation tool, increase saturation and value (called lightness here) to maximum each. Compare the image with the swatch.

  Lost Layers after saving
Posted by: Thawk143 - 04-20-2017, 08:08 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi Guys. I am using Gimp 2.8.14 on Windows 10 and my projects keeps loosing layers after saving and reopening the project files. I save my files as .xcf and when I open it the next day there are several layers missing. The background layer and several pictures will be lost. The file size is still the same as the day before but several layers are missing. After a few attempts, Gimp will inform me that the file is corrupt.

  Ellipse selection tool quit working
Posted by: eingram25 - 04-20-2017, 02:47 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

Gimp 2.8.20
Windows 10
All of a sudden my ellipse select doesn't work. The rectangle select and lasso select work fine.
The ellipse looks like it's selecting, but nothing gets selected
I re-installed Gimp but it didn't help.
Any ideas, anyone?
Anybody else have this happen?
(I reduced the screenshot to make it uploadable)
