  Filter layers for HD Index painting?
Posted by: Marscaleb - Yesterday 23:29 - No Replies

I found a site that describes an awesome way to create pixel art for video games, using a technique called HD index painting.


The problem is that it seems to only work in photoshop. I find that rather bothersome that it wouldn't be able to work in GIMP, but I'm told that GIMP can't support filter layers.
I'm not quite sure if that is true, because I thought changing the "mode" of a layer did this. Even so, I can't seem to find an option to set a layer to posturize filters or gradiant filters.

Is this true? Is there no way to get GIMP to do this? Or is there a plug-in somewhere that can do this?

  Removing Background of Flowing Hair
Posted by: knotty - Nov 23, 2015 21:52 - Replies (2)

From what I understand, there are two methods to do this, 1. desaturating and using the threshold to make a high contrast mask and, 2. using channels RGB (which I'm just starting to learn).
Question: I read the channels method is better than the threshold. Does anyone know in what way the channels method is better?

  Is there a manual for gimp?
Posted by: Raybrite - Nov 23, 2015 11:14 - Replies (5)

I had gimp back in 2009 and didn't do much with it.
I did manage to download all those little sections for 2.6 though.
I am wondering if I will have to do that again for 2.8 or is there a manual somewhere waiting to be downloaded.

  docs.gimp.org fails to load for over a week!
Posted by: Marco-Jimp - Nov 22, 2015 23:01 - Replies (3)

docs.gimp.org fails to load for over a week!

The problem is when using Chrome.
Gimp is the only site where I am experiencing these problems.
Here's what google says:

Quote:Your connection is not private

Attackers might be trying to steal your information from docs.gimp.org (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_INVALID
Automatically report details of possible security incidents to Google. Privacy policy
ReloadHide advanced

docs.gimp.org normally uses encryption to protect your information. When Chrome tried to connect to docs.gimp.org this time, the website sent back unusual and incorrect credentials. Either an attacker is trying to pretend to be docs.gimp.org, or a Wi-Fi sign-in screen has interrupted the connection. Your information is still secure because Chrome stopped the connection before any data was exchanged.

You cannot visit docs.gimp.org right now because the website sent scrambled credentials that Chrome cannot process. Network errors and attacks are usually temporary, so this page will probably work later.

Does anybody know anything about this?
Firefox seems fine.... but I have a feeling that I checked it last week, and it was also not connecting.

  Gimp's anniversary, new site, and new fixes (2.8.16)
Posted by: ofnuts - Nov 22, 2015 21:55 - No Replies

Today is Gimp's 20th birthday!

To celebrate this, Gimp gets a revamped web site (thanks to Pat David), and releases a bunch of fixes (including the dreaded cursor lag). Current version is now 2.8.16.

Downloads here. If you are on a Debian variant of Linux (Ubuntu, Mint...) and don't want to wait until your distro gets an upgrade, you can install the latest and greatest from Otto Kesselgulasch's PPA.

  Aspect Selection
Posted by: famadorian - Nov 22, 2015 10:41 - Replies (6)

Is it possible to lock rectangle selection to an arbitrary aspect?

I see there's a option to lock to aspect, but which aspect?..and can you specify it?

I have a target image with aspect 1.676

Is it possible to use such an aspect when selecting from a source image?

  Roll printing and preview
Posted by: haze10 - Nov 21, 2015 15:42 - Replies (3)

I have a HP1050C printer using a 24" roll. I set up a custom paper size of 24" x12". So printing a 12x6 photo would take a quarter of the page. But the preview doesn't reflext the sheet size no matter what I do. Plus, switching from landscape to portrait in the printer menu doesn't create a similar change in the preview. I have the canvas size set to match the sheet at 24x12. Using Photoshop CS5 I don't have this issue and everything is previewed properly.

Any ideas how to correct this?

For some reason, all the pictures etc I import onto a blank layer come over really small. Can the import size be made greater someway?
