Question Gimp Crashes at Font Loading
Posted by: stokedboss - Yesterday 22:13 - Replies (6)

I've been using gimp for years, but just recently when I open it, it crashes when it gets to "loading fonts."

I've searched the internet to no avail.

I've tried resetting my fonts to default, re-installing gimp 2.8, going back to gimp 2.6, renaming the ".gimp" folder, deleting it, moving it. Nothing works.

Most other forums assume that you are impatient when it gets to loading fonts, this is not the case. It not only shows "not responding" but it makes my entire computer hang, and I have to do a hard reset to reboot windows.

What is going on? I can run other photo editing software (corel, photoshop) no problem, but I prefer Gimp. No other program at any time causes my computer to hang, only Gimp. I have no other current issues, and run this computer all day every day.

Can anyone give me some advise? I'd appreciate it!

  Gimp 2.8.10 & Monoprice tablet?
Posted by: Stamperman - Yesterday 14:29 - Replies (3)

I apologize if this is something basic, I'm still somewhat new to using Gimp2. I have a monoprice tablet, it's recognized under the input devices, but when set to screen the input (tryingto draw a line) works like the right mouse button is being held down? I'm on a windows 8 machine.

I did a search and have seen others have the same issue, but didn't find an answer. Is there a work around or a way to remap the tablet (10x6).

  Building Gimp 2.9 with Debian Jessie
Posted by: syberraith - Yesterday 03:50 - No Replies

I am trying to build Gimp 2.9 on Debian Jessie AMD64.

I pulled the sources from git for babl, gegl, and gimp.

babl configures and builds without complaint and passes all tests.

gegl configures and builds without complaint, although fails a couple of tests.

Gimp configures and builds without complain, although fails many tests.

Is there anybody that can help trouble shoot this?

I have the make check output for gegl if that would help, and there's this:

gegl-xml (param_set color-model): enum GeglAlienMapColorModel has no value 'RGB'
/src/gimp-dev/gegl/tests/compositions/reference/edge-sobel.png and src/gimp-dev/gegl/tests/compositions/output/ed$
wrong pixels : 115926/115926 (100.00%)
max ?e : 106.727
avg ?e (wrong) : 19.100(wrong) 19.100(total)
/src/gimp-dev/gegl/tests/compositions/reference/reinhard05.png and src/gimp-dev/gegl/tests/compositions/output/re$
wrong pixels : 31680/31680 (100.00%)
max ?e : 0.707
avg ?e (wrong) : 0.118(wrong) 0.118(total)

This is the only evidence of something awry that I can find. Presumably causes a cascade of further errs in gimp.

  Fuzzy Selector - Replacing Sky
Posted by: Witterings - Oct 23, 2014 10:59 - Replies (6)

I'm trying to use the Fuzzy selector to highlight areas of sky and wondering if I've missed a trick somewhere to make it any easier.
I've attached a photo I've been trying to work on and do appreciate it's not an easy one as there's a mist on the ground which rises up to meet the white sky so the selector struggles to distinguish between the two .......... a bad situation's then made worse as the sky varies from left to right and has more blue to the right hand side.

Either I have the threshold quite low and it only removes part of the sky or If I increase the threshold to try and remove it all at once it starts eating into the ground and when I delete you can immediately see it's false as some of the land disappears and it looks as though there's now sea in the distance.

Does anybody have any ideas how to best go about working on something like this??

I'm also not 100% sure what "Feathering is" I'm guessing it tries to help blend one photo into the other and the higher the number the more "blurry" it is????
I played with different levels on another picture and at one stage it seemed to leave a white ish mist around a clump of trees and when I decreased it the mist became less and less and there were clearer lines between the tree and new sky.

In case there's any difference there's a link here to the full resolution picture as opposed to the reduced size one I've attached here

Any help much appreciated!!!

I need to apply a filter, selective Gaussian blur for example, several times on the same image.

How can I do it? Shall I make some script or not?

  Tifs and Jpg's not exporting quality of changes
Posted by: kjacobs4242 - Oct 20, 2014 20:36 - Replies (1)

I have been using gimp for a couple years now, have learned a lot, but still it can seem formidable. My latest problem is after a series of very complicated procedures I finally got close to the skin tones I was looking for in a problematic area of a photo. Hours of tedious work. When I export to tif or jpg the results are horrendous. Not even close to what the .xcf file shows. I tried merging all the layers, the xcf still looks good with just a new base image left, but the exported still looks just as bad. Going out of my mind. Is this a known problem? I used wisest sharpen, and various masks to isolate the skin. I always save to xcf or tif and only jpg when a final product is achieved. I saved in stages usually merging layers, to tiff or xcf, then reopen to start a new series of refinement. Any thoughts as to what is going on. I'll post a blow up. The tonal changes were made in the shadows under the jaw line and the neck in general. The tones on the xcf are similar in the rectangular sections as the oval on the cheek. When exported to Jpg or tif this is what I see. Greens and reds, worse than I was trying to get rid of. this is a crop of a 100% crop. I just had an epiphany, I think is the term. I posted the pic here, and it looked like it was supposed to. So I deleted it. The problem lies in my viewer, just using windows live photo gallery. And I have suspected for some time it did not display properly, but I had no idea it was as bad as it is. Time to find a new program for viewing . I would delete this post but don't know how. Maybe it will help others.

  Editing the Alpha Channel?
Posted by: leoarmstead - Oct 20, 2014 00:12 - Replies (3)

Hey, I'm a 3d artist and I work with texturing alot, I just started getting into something called "specular maps". It has to do with editing what the alpha looks like. I have been searching the internet up and down and cant find a simple way to do this, or even a way that works. I need to either completely replace the Alpha or be able to edit it.

Note: if a mod or developer takes a look at this. someone should bring this up to who ever makes choices on what to release because so far i've only seen people have problems with this.

Thanks in advance!

  How do I remove the panning effect from someone else's video/gif?
Posted by: solaris32 - Oct 19, 2014 14:58 - Replies (3)

There will be some kind of a video/gif but for some reason the author decides to add a panning effect. I want to edit this part of the video/gif and remove the panning effect so it is a larger but non-panning video/gif.

I know this is possible because I've seen edited clips before.

Also I'm a complete and utter newb with Gimp, so if this is even possible with Gimp please explain every step and action in complete detail.

If I need some other tool please tell me which one and how to do it with that if you know.
