  more about floating layers
Posted by: Espermaschine - 01-21-2018, 03:03 PM - Forum: General questions - Replies (12)

In this thread i learned about moving selections with a floating layer:

Today i found a link to a polish forum on my blog.

The problem was about a user trying to make a diagonal grid and one of my blog entries was given as the solution.

You use the Grid filter on a bigger transparent layer, then rotate to get diagonal stripes.
So in my example the canvas is 800x400px, but the grid layer is 1200x1200px.

Next, user was working with a layermask to non destructively "erase" some areas but whenever the layer is moved, the mask moves with it.

This is actually one of the features i'd like to see in Gimp. In PS you have a chain between mask and layer and unlinking it, lets you move them seperately.

One user gave the solution of using the Offset Dialogue (CTRL + Shift + O), which works on layer and layermask.
When i try to use the Float trick, only the visible pixels get selected.

So why can Offset move pixels outside the canvas area, but Select All cant ?

  Cursor offset problem
Posted by: CharType - 01-20-2018, 10:49 PM - Forum: OSX - Replies (1)

I'm having a problem with GIMP where the selection on my screen is significantly above where my mouse cursor is. This doesn't happen 100% of the time but it happens frequently, and usually right after I open GIMP.  I have attached a screenshot that shows what I mean. This seems like a bug. Is there a way to fix this, or should I submit a bug report? Thanks.

I am using GIMP 2.8.18 on macOS Sierra 10.12.6.

  Batch files
Posted by: Pat625 - 01-20-2018, 08:49 AM - Forum: Extending the GIMP - Replies (6)

I am seeking a Batch file program for Gimp 2.8.22 and Windows 10,   I have never used one before and will need some instruction.  Searching for one to make it easier while working on fonts for adjusting coloring, using a bevel tool, or maybe embossing.  My search tells me Bimp comes with Gimp but I cannot find it.  Not listed in the Plug in search browser.  Any suggestions as to what to use and where to get it?  Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

  Drawing with the brush creates jagged lines
Posted by: Mustardman523 - 01-20-2018, 04:50 AM - Forum: General questions - Replies (4)


This is a problem that seems like it came out of nowhere, and I have no idea how to solve it. Whenever I use the brush tool and try to draw anything using my mouse, what comes on the screen is a horribly jagged line. See below for an example:


I thought it might be because "Snap to Grid" in the View menu was turned on, but it wasn't. Turning that on only made it worse:


I don't have the most steady hand, but there's no way it's that bad. So what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

  How to Create and Include Signature?
Posted by: Chaplain Mark - 01-20-2018, 04:32 AM - Forum: Gimp-Forum.net - Replies (2)


This is my second post here as a new member.

I have attempted a search on my query "signatures" and not found any results, so let me ask....

How does one go about creating and including a signature for one's posts?
I poked around in the User Control Panel options, but could not find anything about signatures.

Thanks in advance...!!

This is my first post here on Gimp-Forum.net.  Have attempted a search of the forums, with no results, prior to posting this question.....

I need some advice on how to install plugins into GIMP, specifically, the NIK Collection.

Have been poking around in the directory tree under GIMP in C-windows program files, and have not yet been successful in my attempts to install the plugins.

Thanks in advance for any help..!!
