  GIMP keeps crashing on very first startup - Mac OS X, Version 10.9.2
Posted by: charlottesophieb - Yesterday 21:39 - Replies (1)

Hiya! I just downloaded GIMP, version 2.8 for my MacBook Air, running OS X version 10.9.2.

I downloaded it for the first time, and every time I try and start it up it always stops responding on 'Initialising' or something to do with fonts. I've never downloaded GIMP before. Basically, I'm a bit stuck on what to do so some help would be appreciated!! Thank you!

  Dropping the order of an image within a layer
Posted by: Scrappy28 - Yesterday 21:16 - Replies (1)


I am copy and pasting different images I drew to complete a scene. Is there a way to drop and raise the image order without creating a new layer for each image pasted?

  Need help with an effect, not sure what to call it
Posted by: jcarver1112 - Apr 21, 2014 19:42 - Replies (5)

Hi all, first post here. I've been quite successful over the last couple years using gimp and haven't needed any help but now I'm stuck. The best way I can describe it is I want to take a RGB photo and convert it to black and alpha. Not so much the grey scale where it has several shades of grey but rather where the image is made up of just black and clear. I'm making a project where I will be applying this over a background color. Here's a couple examples of work I've found online. I don't want these images just the same effect.

  EPS Blues
Posted by: crzycowboy - Apr 14, 2014 01:32 - Replies (2)

So I'm running GIMP 2.8.6, and not sure why it will not open the EPS file! Anyone have any thoughts or ideas? I tried downloading a file opener, but it look as if it had took the image and lowered the res on it. Am I missing something here?

THERE IS NO F^^u*&^%&* WAY THAT GIMP WOULD REQUIRE 5,000,000,000 JUST TO USE THE SCROLLBAR IN GIMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT THE DEVS DEFINITELY SCREWED SOMETHING UP IF JUST USING THE SCROLLBAR REQUIRES GIMP TO ALLOCATE 5GB THAT IT CAN'T AND CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: moltres_rider - Apr 13, 2014 20:45 - No Replies


there is a light on by the window and it looks like the light is also coming from that source in the picture. how would I go about removing the florescent light on and make it look like the only light is from the outside? I wanna make a power outage scene where a creature with fire keeps me warm in a cold power outage

  GIMP 2.8 Problem
Posted by: -Adam- - Apr 13, 2014 00:23 - Replies (7)


I'm a long time GIMP user, and I recently downloaded GIMP 2.8 for our new (Windows 8.1) PC.

It worked fine for about a month or two, but as of today, I get an "Error" message saying there is an unknown problem, and the program will close down.

I've looked here and elsewhere, but I cannot find anything specifically on this issue.

Again, GIMP 2.8 worked perfectly fine for a month or two, but now I'm getting an "Error" message.

It's not even when I open GIMP. I can work on GIMP for about 15 minutes before I get the message, and am forced to shut down. I cannot even save my work at that point.

I fill requests for a certain board, and one I recently received requires a lot of render cutting, so as you can imagine, it'll take a long time.

Came close to finishing it, but GIMP crashed at the worst possible moment and I couldn't save my work.

Expecting my explanation wouldn't be enough, I took a screenshot of the "Error" message that continually pops up, and cropped in on Paint.

I've also uninstalled and reinstalled GIMP, but that didn't solve the issue.
