  embedding icm profile in a psd generated by gimp
Posted by: Richar_d - Oct 13, 2017 11:56 - Replies (1)


I'm trying to embed a icm profile sRGB IEC61966-2.1 into a layered PSD made of PNG images problematically using using python pdb call's in gimpfu v2.6.9.
it seems to always default to sRGB and does not embed the IEC version any idea how to do this
using exiftool and imagemagic convert on a psd results in gimp not being able to read it.

image = pdb.gimp_image_new(width, height, RGB)
pdb.gimp_layer_set_name(layer, name)
pdb.gimp_image_add_layer(image, layer, 0)

pdb.plug_in_icc_profile_apply(image, profile, 0, False)
pdb.plug_in_icc_profile_set( image, profile)
pdb.file_psd_save(image, layer, output, output, 0, 0)

  Gradient Problems
Posted by: Leanardoe - Oct 8, 2017 18:25 - Replies (1)

[Image: L8IBBjfBQ5OjF4ysx8L_5A.png]
The gradient generates a rainbow instead of blending between two shades of blue. I realize this is happening because gimp is blending the two hues by adding colors from right all the way back to left instead of left to right.

My right endpoint hue is 250.

My left endpoint hue is 228.

Can anyone tell me why this gradient is blending incorrectly, and how to fix it?

  clone tool in xubuntu 16.04
Posted by: petter5 - Oct 4, 2017 13:56 - Replies (1)

Hi ! My first post to this forum. When using windows, the clone tool works as expected. Using Xubuntu 16.04 - the clone tool does not perform any clone operation after pressing ctrl+click as usual and start to clone - you can see the +is following, but the area to clone does not fill up with the cloned area.

According to google search "xubuntu show mouse position on Control" there could be due to a mouse pointer setting, but really - I have been unable to find any solution to get this to work. Since I prefer Linux 99% over windows, I would appreciate help to get this to work also under Ubuntu.

  BigTiff File Export
Posted by: tsiolkovsky - Sep 30, 2017 21:51 - No Replies

I have an xcf project which is so large that when it exports to tiff it fails due to reaching the tiff file limit size. This is due to the 32bit tiff file size limit. I would like to be able to export my image to BigTiff, the 64bit tiff file type. Currently, I am able to work around this by cropping the file into pieces, saving them each as 32bit tiff files, and then using ImageMagick to append the files into a TIFF64 BigTiff output file.

How do I get GIMP to export as TIFF64?

  Noise now defaults to red but I want B&W
Posted by: andyx5 - Sep 24, 2017 22:19 - Replies (1)


Just started using GIMP and am trying to get to grips with creating space images. To get my star field I am using the Noise filter but for some unfathomable reason, the 'stars' keep coming out red instead of white. I've tried every reset but nothing helps. I don't know why or how this happened. Can anyone help? I see somebody here posted with the same issue in 2010 and a reply suggested using saturation = 0. This has not helped me.
Thanking you in advance.

  Feature Request - Built in Outlined text
Posted by: cosmicvoyager - Sep 17, 2017 06:22 - Replies (1)


I wish GIMP had Outlined text built-in just like Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikethrough are. I know there are multi-step ways to do it, but being able to just click a button like other styles would be much better.

  Similarly named fonts not recognized
Posted by: poymando - Sep 16, 2017 17:58 - No Replies

Hi Folks!
I just purchased and loaded a new set of cool fonts into GIMP the other day. Unfortunately, four of the fonts have similar names:

GIMP is only recognizing "HWTAetnaStreamer" and not the rest of the name. While all the fonts are in the program, only one style shows up. Any way to fix this? I've not had any luck being able to rename the files and have contacted the developer with no luck.
I've attached a screen shot to show what it looks like. I'd love to figure out how to access the fonts I paid for.
Thanks in advance for any help you might offer. [Image: HWT%20screen.jpg?dl=0]

  Image Map - update existing image w/links
Posted by: Norkuvich - Sep 13, 2017 22:41 - Replies (1)

Hello....first time poster, long time user of Gimp with a question regarding updating existing images(links created) through Image Map:

Is it possible? When I opened an image that previously had links(to URLs) created within via Image Map.....those links were no longer present. Wait.....in thinking how to ask the question, I believe I answered it.......

.....open the previously created .html file in notepad
.....copy all the text
.....open Image Map, View Source
.....paste the copied text just below existing text....being sure to update "Untitled" in the top row, as necessary.

Thank you anyway!! haha
