  Gimp not working on windows 8.1
Posted by: Justmenow - Today 13:35 - No Replies

I've downloaded gimp 2.8.10 and when I open gimp it loads, then displays nothing. It still shows that the program is running, and it appears on my task bar, nut when I click on it does nothing.

I have used gimp for years and just got a new computer. Please help.

  Gradient Loading Texture
Posted by: joseph - Today 01:04 - Replies (5)


Attached is a loading texture. Perhaps, someone could help me out and make a purple gradient for it? It needs to work from FG to Transparent.

I've already made one but its too inaccurate. I do not know why its so inaccurate. Perhaps someone with more experience with GIMP 2.8 can help.

  Menu - view options
Posted by: gondudy - Jul 27, 2014 07:56 - Replies (3)

has anyone found a way to keep the view settings such as
snap to grid
snap to canvas edges
snap to active path
check marked so when you close it and reopen it , that it will still be check marked
or even know which file i would need to edit some kind of settings with notepad or file locations it is located at . or know a way that we can edit the functions without having to go the shortcut keyboard route jus to reset it every time
here is a suggestion on the next version if u dont mind doing it make all settings customizable such as the menu bar with out it restarting back to presets
other then that i think gimp is fantastic keep up the good work

  Tool Options will not dock to Toolbox
Posted by: louzou - Jul 25, 2014 23:43 - Replies (3)

I've had this issue for awhile now and it's been quite frustrating to handle, I've found no solution that works consistently so I've come to consult the experts. ^^

Twice now, while editing, I have accidentally shifted the Tool Options tab by a fragment of a millimeter causing it to detach from the Toolbox.
The normal solution I have found is to drag the tab title, not the window - the title that brings up the rectangle labeled "Tool Options" as your cursor - into the section of the Toolbox that says "You can drop dockable dialogs here" - and it will turn blue; according to YouTube and common sense likely.
It does not turn blue.
The only thing that happens is the Tool Options dock is moved into the area, nowhere near attached - still in a separate window. Wherever the cursor was at the time while loading, the window will move there - but will not attach.

I've switched Single Window Mode on and off and it doesn't help either. I've closed the Toolbox and the options, made new ones - still nothing. Restarted Gimp; nadda.

I could have sworn that I locked the tab to the Toolbox, but it wasn't locked at the time I moved it just now, so I'm assuming it either reset the option after restarting the application or I just neglected to double check if it was really locked - but I will make sure to definitely lock it now.

I've read the Help guides, googled, YouTubed, uninstalled/reinstalled, restarted my computer to no avail. Nothing will fix this to my knowledge and I'm unsure why. The only thing I haven't done is a clean uninstall, which I might resort to next if I can't figure out this dilemma.
The current version I have is Gimp 2.8.10.

I'm quite an amateur at this as I've only just started to get myself used to Gimp and would really appreciate it if anyone could enlighten me about this issue.
Thanks for your time~

Edit: I forgot to mention that the last time I was able to successfully redock was after I had reinstalled the program, restarted my computer and relaunched. I've tried that recently and it did not work again to my surprise.

  Problem with Layerfx
Posted by: caz - Jul 25, 2014 19:02 - Replies (4)


I appear to have a problem with Layer Effects - Bevel and Emboss. Once I run it with the setting shown I end up with the rather strange artefacts which are visible at roughly 2 0clock on the last screenshot. I'm not sure what's causing this but it also happened when I ran bevel/emboss on the outer edge of the circle with the size set to 7. I was able to get rid of the artefacts that time by doing alpha to select on the circle base layer, inverting and deleting. That's not going to happen this time though as the artefacts have plastered themselves across the circle.
Anyone know what's going on here?

I'm using the older version of layerfx.py, the one without the layer groups.

  Adding birthmarks to photos
Posted by: blaydon - Jul 25, 2014 13:48 - Replies (2)

Hi all,

I'm a new member here and am completely new to GIMP as well. I've been playing around with the software and am finding it very impressive but was wondering if any of you might have some advice (or be able to point me to a relevant topic) about adding birthmarks (e.g., port wine style birthmarks) to photographs. So far i've played around with adding shapes drawn with the free select tool to different layers, embossing these (with the bump map option), adding purple-ish hues to the selection, and then making the layer more transparent.

It's looking ok I think, but was just wondering if any of you guys had any tips or alternative suggestions for me? Sorry if this isn't very clear - i'm very new to this! Thanks for any help!

  Set Brush Dynamic to a brush as its default
Posted by: Pyteo - Jul 25, 2014 02:45 - Replies (2)

Hello Everyone,

Is there a way to assingn a brush dynamic preset to a specific brush so it becomes the brushe's default?

It's a bit of an assle having to change the betwen different dynamics constantly, especially when each brush should have its own purpose and different settings.

Thanks in advance.

Exclamation brush size slider FIX IT
Posted by: CaoMengde777 - Jul 24, 2014 18:38 - Replies (2)

FIX- add option to adjust scale ... ... 1-1000 , 1-500, 1-250, 1-100 , 1-50, 1-10

is there anyway at all to change the scale of the brush size slider?
so instead of going from 0-1000
it goes to like 0-100 ... or 0-50

how often is a brush higher than like 200 ever even used???HuhAngry

i use brushes like 1-10 pixels... maybe 30,

the way the brush slider is , is sooo stupid, if i had hired the programmer that did it, id fire him...Angry

iam aware of the top and bottom of the slider is different sensitivity...
but... i touch it just a little and it goes 1-7.. 7-13
i want it to go 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 or even 1-1.2-1.4-1.6-1.8-2

everything else about GIMP is really nice! ... i forget, what was the old way this was done?? i think i kind of liked it..? i remember it was not the best either??

one thing i certainly LOVE in the newer versions is single window mode...

wait... is GIMP open source? and i could mod this? .. i should... its totally ridiculous...
a dumb baby programmed this crap.. Tongue
(it seriously makes me mad everytime i work with GIMP.. ive become really comfortable with GIMP, when i mix images together i love it, but when i draw from scratch i HATE the brush slider...)
