  default output folder
Posted by: dinasset - 04-01-2019, 05:18 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)

Likely a stupid question, but I do not see where to change the gimp default output folder; it's always "Documents" the first time (then it maintains what I say), but I think it's really somehow stupid to consider a gimp outcome as a "document", at least an "image", but even better would be to set it according to personal preferences. Thanks.

  Changing the colour of an outline on a B & W image
Posted by: adam_b2019 - 03-31-2019, 12:36 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (5)


I have a B & W image that is a black outline on a white background. It is an imported PDF.  I would like to change the outline colour to something other than black. When I select the outline using the fuzzy selection tool then change the colour the outline colour changes but the quality of the image becomes fuzzy/milky. It looses it's sharpness. 

How can I change the outline colour whilst keeping the sharpness of the image?

Thank you Smile

  Is there a fix?
Posted by: adwhitewolf - 03-30-2019, 07:42 PM - Forum: OSX - Replies (1)

Hi all.  I am new to the forms because normally I can fix what is wrong with GIMP and get it to work with my computer. However, I finally took the plunge and downloaded 2.10 today. Thankfully I kept the older version on my computer as there's a lot wrong with the new version.

I am running a mac with mojave 10.14.3  After installing gimp, I moved the icon to the application folder and launched the application. It says "Varifying Gimp 2.10..." and stays that way about 5 minutes, then I get an error message that says "Gimp 2.10 can't be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed" I have to go to system prefs and accept through security tab.  Usually, I only have to do this once, and then I'm good to go. So far, I've opened gimp 3 times, and had to enter security 3 times.

Gimp 2.8 didn't take this long to open, I don't have a lot of custom fonts, or brushes. I would like to get rid of some of the symbol fonts because I never use them. Not sure this would help.

What can I do to make gimp open quicker, and get rid of the "cannot be opened" problem? All the stuff that worked before, or works with other applications, don't appear to work with 2.10.  Thanks

  Make two colors the same
Posted by: LennartMeier - 03-29-2019, 02:36 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

I'm relatively new to GIMP, so I apologize in advance if my question is silly. I have found the following pictures of a sphere and of an ellipsoid 

[Image: sm8145_0_530x.jpg?v=1469819227][Image: zp11-2.jpg]
I would like to change the color of the ellipsoid to that of the sphere and I tried to rotate colors. The best I managed to do is the following: 
[Image: EllipsoidYellow.jpg]
While the color is somewhat similar to that of the sphere, it doesn't really make the visual impression to me of the same color. Is there any method to improve this?

  I Really Don't Know What To Do Here
Posted by: Alekhine - 03-28-2019, 05:18 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (3)

Hello Smile

I used to be able to use GIMP to paste transparent images onto existing backgrounds. All I had to do was right-click and 'Copy Image' then 'Paste Into Place' on the existing background image. Recently, it has not been working at all. All I get after pasting the transparent image is a black background as shown in the screenshot below. I have GIMP 2.10.8. I use Chrome and Windows 10. Would using an older version of GIMP solve my issue?

Thank you

  Use Font designed in inkscape?
Posted by: fauveboy - 03-28-2019, 01:15 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

I've designed a font I want to use in Inkscape. At the moment I have to design each word I want to use and then export it from Inkscape and then drop it into gimp. Is there a way I can just " Upload" the alphabet in the of the font I've designed so I can just type words I want to use in gimp?

Many many thanks,
