  How to print a small photo centered on page
Posted by: sillycat41 - Jul 6, 2014 18:19 - Replies (4)

Angry I am so frustrated!!! I am fairly new to GIMP but have used other photo editing programs over the years. What I am trying to do is print a small 1" by 1.5" photo in the center of a 4" x 6" piece of photo paper. For some weird reason that I cannot figure out it prints the small photo off the edge and cuts half of it off. I have changed the setting numerous times ... from portrait to landscape, two on a page, etc. and it still prints off the edge. Can anyone help with this problem? Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm using GIMP for Windows and have a Canon MG5220 printer.

  Plugins/script help needed
Posted by: stigzler - Jul 5, 2014 13:22 - Replies (2)

I've searched for a couple of days now, but I am really struggling to find any plugins that are going to help with what I am trying to achieve.

Basically, I am trying to design a GIMP file where users can create gametags for an arcade frontend. This involves heavy use of layer groups and batch processing. The process will be as below. The picture shows the layout:


1) Batch import images into GIMP (There are 2,000 logo images to import)
2) Each Image will be placed in its own layer group which has the same name as the filename minus the file extension (as per "RadioactiveSoftware" in the picture)
3) These individual layer groups will all be placed under another layer group ("Developers" in the picture).

4) The second stage to this is 'batch applying' filters to each logo in their respective layer group. That is something like highlighting the "Developers" layer group and then applying a selected filter. Any resulting filter layers will be placed in the logo's respective layer group.

You can see an example of this in the pic - imagine the process had been applied, once using Stroke and then again using DropShadow. It would look like "Namco Limited" and "LucasArts" in the picture.

Batch because it's going to be a nightmare on 2,000 images doing them individually.

The last stage (flattening exporting layer groups as individual images) has been fantastically solved by Ofnuts... (cheers dude!)

I hope this makes sense - it's hard to explain. If there are any donation coders out there who would like a few beers for their troubles - I would be eternally greatful for your help!

Question Very strange problem, mouse wont input HELP
Posted by: firepaw77 - Jul 3, 2014 21:35 - Replies (8)

I'm very new to gimp and usually only use it for basic editing, but i encountered an issue. Gimp will start up fine, but in a minute or so, the mouse input will cease to work. I can still press the buttons with tab and enter, but the process of doing so is annoying and sometimes impossible. I have attempted to delete the gimp folder and re-installing, but have had no success. i am on gimp 2.8.10 and using a toshiba laptop with windows 7. If you have a question or a solution i intend to monitor this post closely. Thanks!

Sad Start up error/Gimp keeps closing
Posted by: ms. shelley - Jul 3, 2014 16:45 - Replies (3)

Hi everyone. I hope I'm posting in the right place because I really need some help.

Here are my system specs:

My machine is a Dell Vostro 320
My OS is Windows 7
My processor is a pentiumĀ® dual-core cpu e5500@2.8GHz 2.79GHz

My installed ram is 2.00 GB
System Type 32 bit
My Hard Disk says I have 185GB free of 283GB

I use Gimp on occasion for editing personal photos and never had a problem with the program before. Last night, after adding some new brushes and patterns to Gimp, I attempted to refresh the cache and the program froze and then crashed. When I tried to restart Gimp, I got the following message:

(gimp-2.8.exe2292): GLib-Error**: gmem.c110: faliled to allocate _______ bytes (I can't remember the exact number of bytes)

Then I got a message saying the application requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way and to contact the application's support team for more info. Then I get the Windows error message telling me Gimp has stopped working and that Windows is checking for a solution...then Gimp shuts down.

This happened several times. I restarted my computer, I emptied my recycle bin and even restored my computer to an earlier time when Gimp was working...nothing helped. I went to bed.

This morning, I uninstalled Gimp and then I re-installed it.

Same issues.

Can anyone help me? I don't know what's happening or how I'm supposed to fix it. Gimp is the only program I'm having an issue with.

  GIMP Brush Categories
Posted by: arakish - Jul 2, 2014 03:34 - Replies (4)

I have been using GIMP off and on for only about a year. I have hunted through the dox, the help system, and other forums. Don't know how many here are also familiar with Photoshop, but there is one feature in Photoshop that I love tremendously.

I love the way Photoshop has, what I call, brush categories. If I do not load all brushes, then I can click on a small button and choose another category of brushes. Photoshop has a popup dialog box with four buttons, asking me what I want to do. The four buttons are: Apend, (I forget), Replace, (I forget). I always choose Replace since this means I do not have a 1000 brushes I have to search through like I have to do with GIMP.

Is there a plan in the works to implement this same capability?

While at it, can the same be done for patterns, gradients, etc.?

Although I like GIMP, I much prefer these "categorizations" that Photoshop has so I do not have to hunt through a 1000 items.

Or is this a capability GIMP already has and I cannot find how to do this?

  Issue with Layers and Lighten only mode
Posted by: pgodfrin - Jul 1, 2014 16:40 - Replies (19)

I am creating a montage of moon photos, using layers with the "lighten only" mode is set. I have one layer which refuses to overlay in lighten only mode. When I switch to "normal" mode, the image is visible, but it disappears when changed to lighten only.

See attachment for an example.

Any thoughts?

  How to colourise in 2.8
Posted by: doodledardle - Jun 30, 2014 01:51 - Replies (3)

Hi All

Just upgraded from Gimp 2.0 to Gimp 2.8 and can no longer colourise anything. In 2.0 it was about two commands and ten seconds, but that facility seems to have gone in 2.8 and I would really appreciate some help. I have searched YouTube for help but got nowhere.

My goal is simple: I have a black and white image, and I want to colourise part of it. That's all I want to do. The image is of a house and I want to make the front door of the house blue while leaving the rest of the image black and white. In 2.0 this was very simple - select the area you wanted to change and then choose color>color balance and you were done.

Very grateful to anyone who can help me out!

Regards & Thanks in advance.

  Animated Gif?
Posted by: Captain_Cereal_Hands - Jun 29, 2014 13:22 - Replies (6)

Sometimes when I create an animated gif with say 2 frames or more one of the frames comes out messed up like it has a lower number of colors but other frames come out fine.
