  optimizing multiple images for web
Posted by: sxmfranck - Yesterday 14:13 - Replies (1)

I just learn about BIMP to resiez multiple images in 1 click

But I would like to do more. I have 170 images to optimize :
- Color -> Auto : contrast, white balance : only the standard GIMP options
- Resize for Web : same width for all images + 72.000dpi

Any change to automate this instead of going 1 by 1 ?

  I can't understand...
Posted by: NoRab - Mar 25, 2015 13:46 - Replies (11)

I just started using GIMP. The lack of some functions bother me, but I can live without it. No shortcut+mouse for fast zooming? Ok, no worries, we will get used to it. No quick way to change the size of the brushes? Luckily, there are plugins created by the community to fix this issue.

We can not set the size of each tool separately. WHAAAAAT? I mean ... WHHHAAAAAAAAT?
Who had this idea? Who likes to spend his time to set brush size each time he changes tool?

So the question I ask is : is there a way, on GIMP, to set the tools brush size separately from each other?

I would like to add text to an image. Please can someone advise how I can center the text, which is especially important if the text goes into a second line?

Many thanks in advance.

  Transparency Channel info?
Posted by: macro2k - Mar 20, 2015 13:42 - Replies (4)

Im not sure if my problem is just one of not being able to get my head sorted about how Gimp works. I am using a transparency channel with images and manage to save pngs with transparency which is fine. Next though I have been trying to work out how I could save just the transparency information (ideally as a jpg) to use as a map for 3d programs. Any ideas how I could do this?

  Depth Perception
Posted by: fluffybunny2 - Mar 20, 2015 04:33 - No Replies

Following on from my recent Color Perception post, where I showed an example of how our brains interpret what color we see based on nearby colors.

Our brains are so attuned to determine the shapes of objects based on light and shadow that even when we know we are looking at a two dimensional image on a screen or on paper, if we see brighter and darker areas we easily accept that depth exists where it does not.

Below I created 3 concentric circles of various sizes.
Each was stroked using the same linear gradient made up of shades of grey - light to dark.
Then I added 2 small dark areas to simulate shadows.
