  Shower-inspired of the day
Posted by: Ofnuts - 11-28-2017, 03:24 PM - Forum: Gallery - Replies (7)

How hard would it be to emulate the tiling in the shower (small tiles all of roughly, but not exactly, the same color)? It turned out it also required a script Smile

Without the script, not bad, but the tiles are uniformly colored (layer with base color, and 40x40 pixellated plasma over it, in "soft light" mode):

   

With a script to shuffle tiles, instead of pixellating the plasma, I blur it and shuffle it:

  Stampeffect
Posted by: Espermaschine - 11-27-2017, 03:15 PM - Forum: Gallery - No Replies

   

Heres how you do it.

Type a letter.
Lock the alpha channel and run a shaped gradient over it. White to a mid gray.
Blur (say 8px)
Apply an Alpha Curve to get a slightly rounded letter.
Merge down with black layer to get a layermask.
Apply layermask to a layer with your colour of choice.
Put a white layer behind.
Set layermask-layer to 'Dissolve' Mode and reduce Opacity (88%).
Merge down.
Apply G'MIC - Recursive Median with a Radius of 2.
Apply Colour To Alpha with white.

  Automated Process Help
Posted by: Phate6660 - 11-27-2017, 06:44 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Hello!

I am currently working on a project that will take FOREVER if I don't figure this out.

I have extracted all of the textures (dds) from Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of The Earth and am up-scaling the textures.

I need to know how to automate it it with specific options:

Double the resolutions

Unsharp Mask

Anti-aliasing

As well as generate MipMaps


Any Suggestions?

  How to get this effect...

I'm a Gimp novice, so I need some help...

http://www.johngreenbooks.com/ <-- on this author site, on the main page, there's a blue and yellow photo of John Green and I was wondering how I could get an effect like that on my own pictures?? I've messed about with a few things, but they failed badly. Can anyone help me, please? Smile

Thanks in advance.

  Is there a faster way to duplicate and rotate layers?
Posted by: iZeus - 11-26-2017, 07:52 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Looking to make a gif for my birthday.

Essentially I'll have a circle image with my face rotating to a song.
However I really don't want to be repeating the "Duplicate Layer +1 Degree Rotate" for 360 layers. Is there a faster way of doing this? Or maybe I could do bigger degree portions instead of 1 to 360? A script perhaps?

  Gimp renames fonts
Posted by: AndyDC - 11-26-2017, 04:34 PM - Forum: Linux and other Unixen - Replies (2)

Hi, I'm pretty new to both Gimp and Linux.  

I'm trying to produce a brand-compliant leaflet for a charity I support.  I've installed two new fonts that were provided by the charity - 'Omnes Extra light' and 'Omnes Thin' 

But I cannot get Gimp to recognize them as two different fonts, or to name them correctly.

First off, they pop up in the Gimp font list with wrong names. Both have been labelled as  'Omnes Light'  -  which is in fact the name of a different font - that I haven't installed.  And when I use them to edit text, both fonts print out identically - which is wrong, they should appear notably different from each other..

I have viewed whole alphabets for both fonts in Font Viewer and both appear as they should be -  intact and correct.  Both have file names that are correct for the fonts: 'omnes-thin.ttf' and 'omnes-extralight.ttf

Things I have tried: 

I have installed .otf versions of both fonts with the same result.  

I have tried installing the fonts automatically via Font viewer.

I have tried putting them manually in a different folder - ie in /home/andy/.fonts


None of the above work. I'd appreciate any help anyone can offer !

  Any way to change Rectangle Select to the way it looked in 2.6?
Posted by: seanmcnally - 11-25-2017, 07:23 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)

So, I'm a casual user transitioning over to Gimp 2.8, and one of my major gripes with it is the fact that the rectangle select tool has a double border.  In 2.6, the rectangle select tool was a single line, and was much more precise.  Here's what I mean:
[Image: GxNClLQ.png]In 2.6, that purple line was exact - you knew exactly what pixels you were selecting, and the resulting marching ants resided exactly along that purple line.  In 2.8, however, the resulting marching ants wind up somewhere in between those two lines, which makes it a lot harder to select things at the pixel level.  Is there any way to change the way this looks?

Thanks,
Sean

  What filter is this?
Posted by: Methuselah96 - 11-25-2017, 06:44 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (2)

Can anyone help me figure out what filter was used to create this image? I created this image a couple years ago using Gimp, but I can't remember what filter I used. Before the filter was applied, the image was a solid light-green circle with solid white stripes. (I blurred out the text since they're names.) I've gone through all the filters and I can't seem to find a filter that produces the same result.

  Changing default / assumed options in "Export to..."
Posted by: samzeman - 11-25-2017, 04:01 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (1)

Hi! 

I often export to the .data format, and I'm wondering how to make it so that when I do, the window that pops up:
[Image: kQeedwk.png]
defaults to selecting Standard. It's one of those small things that, when I'm saving a lot of images in a new format, slows me down a little.

I'm just curious about whether I can make that option stay as planar unless I choose otherwise. It's not major.
