Is there a smooth-path.exe that is compatible with Gimp 2.10?  I tried using mine from 2.8 but keep getting missing dll errors and does not run.  I really hope there is one available.

  Distort Center of Text
Posted by: kkline116 - 11-28-2018, 09:27 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)


I'm trying to distort the center of text without distorting the ends of it.

I've tried Cage Transform, but that "bows" the letters on the end, and I'm going for a "straight text", hard lines, etc.

An example would be the logo attached.

Any idea how I can create this effect? I'm wondering if I could make a shape with GFig and fill the text into that shape?

  loading time of G'MIC Qt
Posted by: Espermaschine - 11-28-2018, 07:34 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - No Replies

Since G'MIC moved on to the Qt format, loading time of the plug-in went from instantaneous to 5sec+.

Anybody else experiencing this, or is this behaviour related to my system ?

  text along a path produces wierd format
Posted by: Ivan - 11-28-2018, 04:17 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Hi everyone,
i am stuck with a problem in which "text along path"function produces unwabted change. If the text is ABCDEFG, after conversion to follow a ptah i.e. circle it is turned upside down and in the reverse order GFEDCBA. I have checked the steps in number of youtube tutorials but I cant see the reason why my GIMP is doing this. thanks for help.

  GIMP Appimage and the obsolete version of the plug-in protocol
Posted by: nelo - 11-28-2018, 09:56 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hi all,

I'm trying out GIMP Appimage next to my flatpak.

With several script/ plugins I get  warning like this:

Quote:Could not execute plug-in "simple-border"
because it uses an obsolete version of the plug-in protocol.

It's not only simple-border (of beautify), but others as well. They do run on my flatpak version, so I guess it has something to do with the Appimage. Anything I can do about it? A bug in the Appimage?

Version Info:
I'm on Linux Mint 18.3
Appimage for example: GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20181122-x86_64.AppImage

  A Layer Question
Posted by: FlutteringBy - 11-27-2018, 08:45 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (6)

Hi All,

For some reason I don't see a New Thread button on the Gimp 2.10 forum, so I'll post in the General Questions....

A Gimp newbie here & I've been reading through various tutorials to try to get familiar with some of the terminology....

When I open an image in 2.10.6, the layer palette opens as "file name.jpg" rather than Background...

Some tuts then say to promote the layer...when I right click on the .jpg layer I don't see any promote option so obviously the wording has been changed, so, how do I promote a layer in 2.10.6?

Many Thanks,

  bigger Depth Merge Preview?
Posted by: damprain - 11-27-2018, 09:27 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

If duplicate question, really sorry about that.
I search "depth merge" and nothing found.

Could I change the size of the depth merge filter preview window,
or preview to main window? Huh

It is a bit too small for me to tune fine.

  How to change your Gimp theme with gtk2-runtime-2.24.10 and Theme selector for Window
Posted by: Pocholo - 11-26-2018, 10:34 PM - Forum: Tutorials and tips - Replies (4)

How to change your Gimp theme with gtk2-runtime-2.24.10 and Theme selector for Windows only.

***This is for those who would get bored like me an would like to switch Themes once in a while. Also for those who will like to change the Gimp program Font and size.

1. Download gtk2-runtime-2.24.10 from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk-win/ and https://gtk-win.sourceforge.io/home/inde.../Downloads . Install both programs. Once installed, go to your: C:\Programs\Program Files (x86)\GTK2-Runtime. Click on the gtk_prefs file, copy and paste this file on your Desktop.

2.  Go back to the GTK2-Runtime folder, and double click to open the folder: share and the double click to open:C:\Programs\Program Files (x86)\themes. Here you will see some Themes that comes with the program. Download this 63 Themes from my One Drive: https://1drv.ms/f/s!Aj4sc4EuqRe9qzUdEXs1u99pPVK6  go back to "gtk2 themes folder",  and pour all 63 themes inside this folder. You can always add New Themes from: https://www.gnome-look.org/browse/cat/268/ [Image: 6266_Theme%20tutorial%202.jpg]

3. Open any folder and make sure there is a Sub-folder name "gtk-2.0. Open the Sub-folder, there it should be a bunch of png images and the main gtkrc (procedure file).

4. Now, go back to the themes folder, press Ctrl and A, to Select All the folders and Copy all these folders. Go to: C:\Programs\Program Files \GIMP 2\share\themes, and first, delete all the themes, if there is any. Paste the copied Themes in this folder.
[Image: 6266_Theme%20tutorial%204.jpg]

5. Like I stated before in Step 2, if you have a new Theme, you must place the theme folder in your: C:\Programs\Program Files (x86)\GTK2-Runtime\share\themes and copy the same folder to your: C:\Programs\Program Files (x86)\GTK2-Runtime\share\themes folder.

6. Go to your Desktop and double click the gtk_prefs and you will have the Themes selector. From here you can set the themes you want and you can change the Font size and thickness you preferred.
[Image: 6266_Theme%20tutorial%206.jpg]

7. Click OK, and press Yes, to overwrite the previous theme. Start Gimp, and you enjoy your new Theme.

8. If you Update to a newer version of Gimp or If your: C:\Programs\Program Files \GIMP 2\share\themes gets Overwritten, Copy the Themes from: C:\Programs\Program Files (x86)\share\themes and Paste them to the new version folder, C:\Programs\Program Files \GIMP 2\share\themes.

  Rotate using the measure tool
Posted by: rich2005 - 11-26-2018, 06:08 PM - Forum: Tutorials and tips - Replies (1)

There are all sorts of ways to rotate layers in Gimp. In Gimp 2.10.6 (and later) the measure tool can be used.

Is it any better than other tools, not really, just an alternative but worth knowing about.


This video demo: 2 and a half minutes shows the tool in action.

  LiquidRescale for 2.10
Posted by: Espermaschine - 11-26-2018, 04:02 PM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (10)

I installed the most recent version for 2.8 (http://liquidrescale.wdfiles.com/local--..._setup.exe), from the wiki, which works but is missing icons.

What can be done about it ?
