  Toolbox issues: size of tools and brushes too small?
Posted by: aftertheangels - Today 18:27 - Replies (2)

So I just downloaded gimp onto my new laptop. It has windows 8, unlike my old laptop which had windows 7. All of a sudden, the text size in my toolboxes as well as the images representing my tools and brushes are too small. Changing the toolbox size doesn't do anything. I can't use it like this, it's too hard for me to see what's going on anymore.

Besides that, all of my brushes are suddenly blurry or pixelated whenever I try to use them, no matter what the size. I'm not sure what's going on.

Okay, so I'm making an RPG game, but I need to use GIMP for a specific job. So I try messing around with it and I don't know how to change the color of this graphic, can some tell me how to change the black pixels into green pixels? Like a color changer.

  Slow to start on Win XP
Posted by: ofnuts - Aug 17, 2014 14:39 - Replies (5)

O, so my usual Gimp is on Linux, but to test things I also run Gimp (2.8.10) in a WinXP virtual box. And during startup this Win version has a very noticeable delay while loading scripts (in verbose mode, it says "Starting extension: 'extension-script-fu'"). I do have some plugins of my own, but zero non-standard scripts, and the Preferences only show the two regular script directories: the ones in the installation and the one in my profile (which is empty). Is this normal behavior? Anything else to check?

  Gimp 2.8 freezing on Color to alpha
Posted by: Garverick - Aug 16, 2014 02:02 - Replies (10)

Hi, there hopefully this is the right section i didn't see anything that really screamed support/ troubleshooting, but i downloaded Gimp 2.8 last night to do some re-texturing for a game called ArmA 3, i got one to work perfect for my last night was able to do one custom camo, now every time i go to COLOR TO ALPHA the 2 layers together, Gimp starts to not respond and eventually if i don't close out of the one box with the dual layers it causes the others to not respond, close it out Gimp runs fine, i have no idea why its do this now and not last night any help would be appreciated

i have uninstalled and reinstalled Gimp several times now even move the installation to see if it that would help. but alas still freezes up when i try to color to alpha.

  How do I get text color to change
Posted by: ConsiderThis - Aug 15, 2014 20:33 - Replies (7)

I've read the text color part of the manual repeatedly. I've watched online slide tutorials.

I can get the Text tool to show red, I can get a red asterisk (which is the colored text I want in my picture) to show in the text tool box, but NOTHING gets the text to show up red in the document.


I've spent several hours trying everything I can think of.

Help, please?

  GIMP has stopped loading recently...
Posted by: TWK - Aug 15, 2014 02:40 - Replies (10)

GIMP just freezes up when loading to open it.

I have tried deleting it and downloading it with the same results.

I'm sure it is no coincidence this is happening right at the time changes are being made to it.

Anyone else having trouble?
Any suggestions?

I use Windows 7 64 bit.

  Remember last folder
Posted by: danieldownes - Aug 14, 2014 17:36 - Replies (1)

Hi people,

This is my 2nd post (after I introduced myself here: http://gimpforums.com/thread-making-the-...software).

Well, I've only been using GIMP for a few weeks, after making the shift from Photoshop.

I generally only do some simple cutting/cropping and exporting (I'm a game developer).

One of the first thing I'd like to fix is the fact that GIMP doesn't remember my previously save as or export as location. Does anyone know if there is an option for this?

I did a quick search and found that it used to do this (http://portableapps.com/node/20378).

Also (probably a bigger job) it would be nice to tighten the export window. For example include the actual export settings in a single window, rather than have a 'save to' window, and then the 'export settings' window.

I'm a very capable developer and willing to look at these problems (if there is no other way except for contributing to code). I thought I'd post some messages here being digging though the code just yet, but if someone wanted to point me in the right direction that would help.

  pressure-size brush
Posted by: ceti331 - Aug 14, 2014 00:49 - Replies (1)

gimp has decent control over brush dynamics these days, and a big selection of presets

Could the package include a Pressure-Size brush by default i.e. size is controlled by pressure, opacity is constant. (similar to corel-painters 'variable-width-chalk').

its' something I always have to setup when installing it.

i remember gimp's airbrush being the exact opposite... is the gimp community completely opposed to this behaviour or something.

i can't be the only person in the world that likes this
