  How can I apply the same filter several times
Posted by: Physics2007 - Yesterday 20:49 - Replies (5)

I need to apply a filter, selective Gaussian blur for example, several times on the same image.

How can I do it? Shall I make some script or not?

  Tifs and Jpg's not exporting quality of changes
Posted by: kjacobs4242 - Yesterday 20:36 - Replies (1)

I have been using gimp for a couple years now, have learned a lot, but still it can seem formidable. My latest problem is after a series of very complicated procedures I finally got close to the skin tones I was looking for in a problematic area of a photo. Hours of tedious work. When I export to tif or jpg the results are horrendous. Not even close to what the .xcf file shows. I tried merging all the layers, the xcf still looks good with just a new base image left, but the exported still looks just as bad. Going out of my mind. Is this a known problem? I used wisest sharpen, and various masks to isolate the skin. I always save to xcf or tif and only jpg when a final product is achieved. I saved in stages usually merging layers, to tiff or xcf, then reopen to start a new series of refinement. Any thoughts as to what is going on. I'll post a blow up. The tonal changes were made in the shadows under the jaw line and the neck in general. The tones on the xcf are similar in the rectangular sections as the oval on the cheek. When exported to Jpg or tif this is what I see. Greens and reds, worse than I was trying to get rid of. this is a crop of a 100% crop. I just had an epiphany, I think is the term. I posted the pic here, and it looked like it was supposed to. So I deleted it. The problem lies in my viewer, just using windows live photo gallery. And I have suspected for some time it did not display properly, but I had no idea it was as bad as it is. Time to find a new program for viewing . I would delete this post but don't know how. Maybe it will help others.

  Editing the Alpha Channel?
Posted by: leoarmstead - Yesterday 00:12 - Replies (3)

Hey, I'm a 3d artist and I work with texturing alot, I just started getting into something called "specular maps". It has to do with editing what the alpha looks like. I have been searching the internet up and down and cant find a simple way to do this, or even a way that works. I need to either completely replace the Alpha or be able to edit it.

Note: if a mod or developer takes a look at this. someone should bring this up to who ever makes choices on what to release because so far i've only seen people have problems with this.

Thanks in advance!

  How do I remove the panning effect from someone else's video/gif?
Posted by: solaris32 - Oct 19, 2014 14:58 - Replies (3)

There will be some kind of a video/gif but for some reason the author decides to add a panning effect. I want to edit this part of the video/gif and remove the panning effect so it is a larger but non-panning video/gif.

I know this is possible because I've seen edited clips before.

Also I'm a complete and utter newb with Gimp, so if this is even possible with Gimp please explain every step and action in complete detail.

If I need some other tool please tell me which one and how to do it with that if you know.

  [SOLVED] Gimp 2.8 crashing with Wacom Intuos on Linux
Posted by: ksaugustin - Oct 17, 2014 08:40 - Replies (10)

I'm using Gimp 2.8 on Chakra Linux. Setting up the Wacom Intuos tablet hasn't been a problem at all. I get pressure sensitivity and, following VScorpianC's tutorials on YouTube, I can do pretty much everything with the tablet, including using the other end of the pen as an eraser. Very handy.

Here's my problem: while doing things (opening images, using a brush), Gimp will randomly shut down without warning. This doesn't happen when the Intuos tablet is inactive, so I know it's related to the tablet. I ran Gimp from the console and this is what it said:

Quote:** (file-jpeg:16084): WARNING **: JPEG - unable to decode XMP metadata packet
While parsing XMP metadata:
Error on line 41 char 1: End of element <xmpMM:DerivedFrom> not expected in this context

Metadata parasite seems to be corrupt
While parsing XMP metadata:
Error: No XMP packet found
The program 'gimp' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'XI_BadClass (invalid Class parameter)'.
(Details: serial 19267995 error_code 133 request_code 131 minor_code 6)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

(script-fu:15853): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: gimp_wire_read(): error

Any idea what all this means? Seems a shame not to use my brand-new shiny Wacom tablet.

Ok I am trying to figure out the logic in making a art program with horrible art tablet support.

I have been using gimp for everything from game development to webdesign to even photo enhancement and so many other things I can't even remember. I always hated Photoshop and when Redhat 5 game out and gimp worked awesomely (for the time) it was good bye Photoshop (youmoneygrubbingjerks). That means I have been using gimp for nearly 15 years and never had any problem...


The lag between my pen tool and the program itself is horrendous... After getting the recent drivers (for the tablet) at least it draws now instead of opening up random context windows.

I tested it in M$ paint (EWWWWW) and even got a photoshop trail where it worked awsome. It also rocks in blender... SO WHAT THE HELL IS GIMPS PROBLEM?????

Is there anyway to fix this.

  GIMP not working/loading
Posted by: Pigeon - Oct 16, 2014 17:59 - Replies (5)

Hello all!
I have been a GIMP user since late January 2014 and counting.
Lately, I have experienced a problem when loading GIMP.
The green bar loads about three quarters through then stops. I waited around 20 minutes for it to respond, but no, it didn't. And when I clicked the tab, it fully crashed.

I noticed that there was a GIMP update that I didn't download it, so I installed it, thinking that might of been the problem. But it still didn't work. The green bar loaded around three quarters way through and didn't respond, again. I waited around 30 minutes but no responding.

Is there any way to fix it? If so, please tell me as I want to use GIMP again!


EDIT: If this post is in the wrong area, please tell me, so it can be moved.

  Building Gimp -- WebKit not Found
Posted by: syberraith - Oct 15, 2014 19:29 - Replies (3)


I am bulding gimp in Debian Jessie from Debian sources, and during configuration webkit is reported as not found.

I have installed libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 and libwebkitgtk-3.0-0 along with libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev, although configure still fails to find for what it is looking.

  Monoprice Tablet, No Pressure Sensitivity
Posted by: AnScathMarcach - Oct 15, 2014 01:18 - Replies (2)

I've googled this issue and found other topics addressing it, but none of the solutions worked for me.

I just got a Monoprice 8x5 inch tablet. The driver software was successfully installed and the tablet does work. I checked the tablet's features and in the Pressure Test, it works fine. But in Gimp, all it does is work as a mouse and the pressure sensitivity does not react.

I have gone into Preferences > Configure Extended Input Devices, and my tablet does appear, but when I set the setting to "Screen" as suggested and try to use it, it acts like I'm trying to draw with a right-click. Also when I click "Save" in the configuring window, the window doesn't close. Is that supposed to happen? I have to click the X since the close button doesn't seem to be working either.

I've also tried messing with the Brush Dynamics with no luck.

I even tried updating Gimp to 2.8.14 (not sure which version of 2.8 I had before), and still getting the same results, only when trying to set the tablet configuration to Screen, I ended up stuck in the Move function and had to close Gimp with Task Manager.

Any ideas on how to get this working?
