  Input Devices and Gim
Posted by: tre4 - Jan 18, 2019 16:17 - Replies (1)

I have started using a surface tablet with an NTrig pen. Initially I could not get it to work then I explored and worked out the need for the winTab driver. With that in place I get three input devices

Eraser, Puck and Stylus. I removed Puck as I do not have one and Stylus works fine. Eraser however does not work. When I use the stylus I see a circle the size of the brush moving even before I touch the screen. When I do touch the screen it starts drawing in the selected color.

When I use the eraser I get the same behaviour of the circle moving however Device status shows the highlighted device as Stylus. When I touch the screen the color in the palette changes , the device input changes to Eraser and the circle vanishes. Nothing draws on the screen in any color.

If I try to change the color of the paint using the eraser it changes the color of the stylus foreground paint.

It feels like there is something a bit off in the configuration here. I cannot find any other options though. I am living without by just changing between black and white on the palette when using a layer mask. It would be good to understand what I am doing wrong here though as this seemed quite logical until I tried to use it.

  Gimp and Python development
Posted by: ffrree - Jan 16, 2019 06:49 - Replies (1)

Hi, I am new to GIMP, so please excuse the ignorance.

I am interested to develop a Python based application to manage my photo library, which is huge. I use Picasa, but it has no future, so I want to develop my own, on the photo file management side, however, use GIMP as my photo editor.

Would anyone who has been using GIMP in conjunction with Python, and for that matter, another language environment?

Where should I start reading and get API libraries to start exploring with Python?

If this forum is not the right place, please point me to where that may be.

Thank you.

  Problems with display size vs screen resolution
Posted by: blinkinhek - Jan 10, 2019 14:28 - Replies (1)

I am using the latest version of Gimp on a new Surface Pro laptop. My problem is that the tool option icons, by default on the right of the screen, are too small to be useable. I cannot find any setting to increase the size. Windows 10 allows me to provide a global setting for a 'Scale Factor' but Gimp seems to ignore this.
Any suggestions???

  GIMP saving the transparency checkerboard in image
Posted by: SlyCooperReloadCoded - Jan 9, 2019 01:50 - Replies (1)

I've never had a problem with GIMP before, but I can't find any information about this online and it just started happening randomly.

Whenever I add transparency to a PNG (Add Alpha Channel, Fuzzy Select Tool), the exported image also includes GIMP's "transparency grid" as part of the image. Here's an example:

Original image:

Exported image:

I can't find any other examples of this on the internet. This has never happened before, and it just started happening today. I've added transparency to dozens of images just like this one and it's worked perfectly until now.

To clarify, yes - both the original and exported image are PNG. And yes - GIMP is set to RGB mode.

Edit: Through my own experimentation, I've learned that GIMP automatically applies a "transparency checkerboard" to any transparent layer I make. Imagine GIMP's pattern that represents transparency, but only every other square is transparent.

  GIMP Slow Open browsing folger
Posted by: euro_rapp - Jan 4, 2019 20:36 - Replies (1)


when i click on file and open filge to browse them, it takes very long until the folder browser of GIMP opens. Around 2 minutes. During this time GIMP freezes. And then suddenly the browser appears.

Also with "save file" and "exports as" it needs long to open the Folder Browser so i can choose the folder where to save the file to.

I have fresh installed Windows 10 and this happens with GIMP 2.8 and 2.10.

Generally GIMP is fast but only the explorer is slow to load. Very slow.

Can somone help me?

  Gimp craashes in LM 19.1
Posted by: Yumi - Jan 4, 2019 06:22 - Replies (1)

Upgraded to LinuxMint 19.1 recently. Now if I want to open a file in Gimp the whole system crashes. Have to restart completely. Am not sure that it has to do with the new version but it looks likely.
Uninstalled Gimp and removed all directories and files. Installed Gimp 2.8 and 2.10 from repositories but the same thing happens in both versions.
Any advice on what else I could do?

Rainbow Change colour
Posted by: eliassons - Jan 1, 2019 19:46 - Replies (1)

Okay, I have a question.
I have a Picture of a veichle, that I want to change colour of. right now it´s blue, but I want it to "pig-pink". I know how to change the colour, either I do it by making a transparent layer and paint in that(like this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfnRntPBS8c ), or I use colour rotation. The problem is, that I can´t paint it with "Pig-pink". If i select that colour it just looks like ordinary pink(see the photo i attatched). I want to paint with the colour i selected. Can someone please help me with how to do?


And if you don´t know "pig-pink" looks, it´s like this: https://www.google.com/search?q=saga+rai...6368416617

  exporting pdf vs. jpeg
Posted by: shortmort37 - Jan 1, 2019 17:29 - Replies (2)

I'm attempting to make a banner with two color background, with text containing two different colors - but, with different fonts. Alll told, there are 10 layers, one with zero opacity - I used it as an underlying guide to construct the banner.

When I export it as a jpeg, everything is aligned perfectly - but of course, when you zoom you get the staircasing you expect from a bitmap:

[Image: jpg_banner.jpg]

When I export it as a pdf, it zooms perfectly, again as you would expect from a vector-based image. However, There is some blurring at the border of the two background colors, as if they are blended from misalignment; and there is whitespace at the right and bottom edges. Here is a jpeg snapshot of the pdf, where I've outlined the artifacts:

[Image: pdf_banner.jpg]

When I rendered the pdf, I chose these options:

[Image: export.jpg]

Is there anything I can do differently, to have the pdf render in appearance as the jpeg?

hi everyone
the eyedrop does not reproduce the colors i see on the screen. in some parts of the screen it works ok in others it copies the color of an adjacent area. After removing the 2.08 version i had and installing the latest 2/10 the problem persisted.
