  gimp crashes when going through fonts
Posted by: ThenYouBecameTheMoon - Today 05:20 - Replies (1)

i'm kind of new, so sorry if any of this does not... work for the site? i dunno, i don't really know where else to ask, especially since my friend who has used gimp for longer hasn't had this issue before.

so on gimp (i use 2.6 on a computer with windows 8.1), i have this issue where if i want to scroll through my list of fonts when adding text, it'll just crash when i get to w (font that itll reach is wingdings, for example)
i've gone through things to fix this, clearing fonts, looking for corrupt ones. i don't have any corrupt fonts, though. so the issue still persists. luckily, i don't need any of the fonts past W, but it's really bothersome.
could anyone figure this out? i'd really appreciate it! ; ; i haven't been able to find anything about this specific problem.

  Filling partially transparent text.
Posted by: uncle808us - Yesterday 01:37 - Replies (3)

I have a snow text font and it is transparent where the snow goes how do I fill the transparent parts all at once. It would take a long time using the bucket tool. I want the snow parts to be white and the letters to be red. Thanks

  Toolbox display corrupted

Just installed gimp on lubuntu 14.04. Toolbox display is corrupt so that the icons aren't visible.


Anyone got any ideas how to sort this out.
Thanks in anticipation of your help.

  Creating Multiple layers from fuzzy selected areas
Posted by: gfnoone - Oct 29, 2014 12:36 - Replies (6)

Hi to all,
I have created a blank Jigsaw using gimp (12 x 20 piece)
Using the fuzzy select tool I can select,copy and paste each single jigsaw piece as a new layer
I can then remove or add any piece to simulate building the jigsaw from scratch.

Sadly selecting, copying and pasting to new layer is very time consuming.

I know if I hold down "shift key" I can select multiple pieces with the fuzzy select tool but after selecting multiple pieces is there any way to save them all as new layers?

Your Expert help for this puzzle would be great.

  Fixing Face Washed Out By Light
Posted by: ff36 - Oct 28, 2014 21:39 - Replies (3)

I have an image where one person's face is washed out by light being on it. Is there a good way to isolate him and try to fix this as much as possible? I've attached the portion of the photo. Any help is appreciated. Thanks so much.

  Removing a gradient background
Posted by: cobbyco - Oct 28, 2014 15:34 - Replies (5)

I'm new here, so hi!

Here's the situation: I have a phone icon that I want to remove the background of, so that I'm left with the phone glyph on a transparent background. Basically, I want to remove the second image from the first, while maintaining all the anti-aliasing details on the phone:

[Image: rCFCycp.png] [Image: v48AO87.png]

Now I know how to do this, and get a pixel-perfect result. I could find the colour of each row of pixels, then use Color to Alpha to remove that colour from that row. That would leave the white glyph essentially separated from the background. The problem is, that takes a very long time to do as you have to do that for every row of pixels. That's a nightmare if you're working on a 1024x1024 image. You can sometime speed this process up by removing all saturation, which means you might be able to group a few rows together.

So my question: is there a quicker way to do this? Is it possible to 'subtract' the second image from the first using a script? If not, could a script be made that gets the colour value for a pixel on one image, then uses Colour to Alpha on that same pixel on the second image, then repeats for every pixel?

  Bringing out a reflection in GIMP
Posted by: vrghost - Oct 28, 2014 09:11 - Replies (2)

Been looking around, and can not find any information on this, that might be because either I've been searching for the wrong thing, or there are just to many instructions on how to create a reflection from scratch. There is of course the possibility that I have been looking at to many spy thrillers on TV, and what I think is possibly is only possible in Hollywood.

Took a photo of my daughter this morning when she was leaning against the TV bench (trying to turn of Peppa Pig for some reason). The thing is that the TV bench is this black piece that gives some reflection and the camera captured some of it. What I was wondering was, is there a way to bring that reflection out or make it stronger, maybe by fiddling with contrast or something?

If someone can point me in the right way, or even give it a try (and please tell me how it was done.

  Wacom airbrush stylus wheel not functioning
Posted by: Triggerfish - Oct 27, 2014 17:42 - Replies (3)

I understand I'm not likely to get a response since this isn't a very popular model, but has anyone actually managed to successfully map brush controls to the "wheel" setting in 2.8? My Intuos3 airbrush pen isn't showing up in the Input Devices menu- it's registered as a standard pen with the eraser and pressure stylus options, all of the axes are mapped except for wheel. It functions fine in Photoshop. Using Windows XP.

I'll be tremendously disappointed if I can't get this working, whole reason I bought the pen was to use it with Gimp's gradients as a color source!

  white background
Posted by: Terry50 - Oct 27, 2014 05:14 - Replies (1)

I wanted to print a map; but I didn't want to waste ink on unnecessary streets. So I went to preferences and chose white for "FILL WITH" in default image.
When I open the map and try to erase something the transparency checkerboard still shows up. How can I erase and get a white back ground?
Thank you.
