  Remove awkward background
Posted by: Rob1955 - Today 10:29 - No Replies

I've removed backgrounds from images I've taken before, that just had a plain background, by duplicating the layer, and using masks, and it worked pretty well. This one is a bit difficult for me. I tried the usual method, but a thin blue (background colour) line remains round the image. I've attached a section of the image to show what I want to remove. I have quite a few of these to do, so something that won't take ages is what I'm looking for. What I'm having to do at the moment, is go round all the edges trying to remove the traces of blue, but it's not very accurate, and the edges don't look neat. Any help would be appreciated.

  Getting Gimp and Intuos to work together
Posted by: Etz-Ron - May 27, 2015 16:26 - Replies (5)

I just purchased a Wacom Intuos(CTL-480) for use with GIMP(2.8). I finally got GIMP to recognize the tablet, but it does not draw. The stylus can perform functions like a mouse, except for drawing. The draw feature works in Paint. I did adjust pressure dynamics, but nothing seems to help. I am now a very frustrated newbie looking for solutions

  Opening PSDs in Gimp: no graduients or textures
Posted by: Taters - May 27, 2015 15:02 - Replies (2)

I recently bought a PSD file online with layered interface design elements.
In GIMP they are completely flat with no textures or gradients. In my brother's Photoshop everything appears as it should. Any ideas on why this would be, how I can get it to look right in GIMP? Maybe there are dynamic filters in PS or something...
I made a screeencap comparison.
Thanks in advance

  Converting Negatives with gimp
Posted by: trucker33377 - May 26, 2015 21:08 - Replies (6)

this is a sample of negatives I am working with. I have lots of them to go threw and convert. Not only Negs but I have old Cardboard photos and a few tins. What would be the best way to clean these up? Thes Negs appear to have smugs and lines in them. Also what DPI is best to scan with ? I only have about 1050 right now. any help would be greatly appreciated

Exclamation Gimp exporting only the selected layer!
Posted by: dan96kid - May 26, 2015 21:04 - Replies (1)

I've been using gimp for quite some time. I recently started converting a texture for use in an armor mod for Skyrim and ran into a problem. When I export the image, only the selected layer gets exported. This is bad because I'm using another layer to hide some imperfections. I'm not sure if this is a bug or not.

The texture in question (Circled in red):

The export results (Again, circled in red):

This is with the "masking" layer selected...

[Image: J9OelAi.png]
and without.

The second image LOOKS okay, but it's missing the "masking" layer.

The red outlines speak for themselves.

Sorry for the large images.

  Move a path
Posted by: tdrsam - May 26, 2015 06:07 - Replies (2)

I made a path but it's too small so what I'm trying to do is; move it into the middle of the canvas and then grow it. How can I do that?

  Gimp Tag Cache Crash
Posted by: GeevesPie - May 25, 2015 22:45 - Replies (1)

Since this last Friday I have been unable to load Gimp. I'm on the most recent version of Gimp and recently updated Windows 8. When the loading bar gets to "Updating Tag Cache" it is unable to load. I have also been unable to open any other art programs besides the basic Paint.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Gimp a few times. I tried deleting and renaming my Gimp Profile folder tree and have been unsuccessful. Each time I deleted or renamed it Gimp created a new profile to run off of. I tried uninstalling my updates for Windows 8 from shortly before I was unable to use Gimp and that did not help any. I even deleted the tag file and it was of no help.

I browsed through Gimp's forums and found nothing that has worked. Are there any other suggestions?

Thank you for your time.

  How to crash GIMP in 3 easy step...
Posted by: Galenmacil - May 25, 2015 20:57 - Replies (5)

Hello everyone,

Despite the catchy title of this thread, I am looking for help to try and find a solution to "a GIMP problem". I am using GIMP 2.8.14 default install with the default profile on a Windows 7 64 bit system with 32gb of RAM. Note that the system is totally stable. RAM was tested with "HCI Memtest" with a 500%+ coverage without any errors. That is roughly a 12 hours test.

I love GIMP and I have being using it for a few years now. I just recently started working on "huge" image files. Some are slightly bigger than 6000 x 9000. It did not take long to realize GIMP simply can't handle file with a memory footprint bigger than 4GB. At least, not for long.

Here are 3 easy steps to reproduce the crashing that occur for me:

1 - Create a new "huge" file. For the purpose of this test I used a 50000 x 50000 pixel image. Yes, that is over 23gb of RAM...
2 - After the new canvas appear. Click on the Text Tool and try to write something on the canvas. For the purpose of this test I used "Tahoma" at 4096 px size. I typed "Test".
3 - On the layers window, select the "background" layer beneath the just created "Text Layer"
4 - GIMP will crash...

OK, So I hear you saying: Common! A 23gb image, whats the point? You are right. But this was just to demonstrate that something is fundamentally wrong in the way GIMP handle memory. You can achieve the same result with smaller image. Like the one I mentioned at the start of this post. It will just take more time but it will crash eventually.

Another way to crash GIMP is to try to load several images. On my system, once the memory allocation gets around 4gb GIMP crash no matter what images were loaded.

Is this a known issue? Can other people reproduce these crash?

Thanks for answering or helping...

  Camera feature
Posted by: Forresn - May 25, 2015 20:22 - Replies (2)


Ive been using GIMP for many years now and now ive found a need to come here for either advice or suggestion.

In 3d animation there is a useful feature that allows the user to view the art at multiple points. these are called windows.
Here is an example of that feature: http://www.3pointstudios.com/3ptools/3pt...reen01.png

i was wondering if GIMP had a similar feature of viewing a work realtime zoomed in and zoomed out.

i do alot of work zoomed in, and it would be helpful to view the work at both points to see how well the work translates when zoomed out real time.
