  GIMP not remembering Fonts
Posted by: MAD King - Jun 23, 2016 22:10 - Replies (3)

When I create a text and use a font, save the file, close and re-open it, it does not remember the font which was uses. It always shows "Sans" as the used font.

  Export As; change default
Posted by: nelsh - Jun 22, 2016 18:16 - Replies (1)

When I chose Export As, the Export Image dialog opens with "Untitled.png" in the name bar.
How can I change that so the Export Image Dialog opens
with "Untitled.jpg" in the name bar?

I can't find the vertical scrollbar - how can I please locate it?

(Is there a way of uploading a screenshot...?) Seems to be buried behind a toolbar.

  Selecting damage on color image
Posted by: gstalnaker - Jun 18, 2016 22:49 - Replies (9)


The Dropbox link is to a scanned image of me as a 7-month-old baby. The original is covered with scratches of varying types many of which appear to be blue. I've done the work to clean this image using varying techniques, mostly following some tutorials that use Wavelet Decompose to isolate levels of detail and then manually select the damage (yes, manually). I got good results with which I am mostly happy.

But ... it took a LONG time to select the damage at each decompose level then run Heal Selection.

I'm thinking that there has to be a better way, perhaps an approach I've not thought of. I've tried selecting by color, but the extend of the damage eventually leads to over-selected pixels. I've tried some techniques that Ctein talks about in his Image Restorate book (written with Photoshop in mind) using edge detection to isolate the scratched or hue/saturation to emphasize them by color, yet neither really worked well.

Anyone here have some ideas for how to approach this problem?

  Huion Tablet Problems
Posted by: TAG - Jun 16, 2016 22:25 - Replies (2)

So, GIMP isn't properly recognizing my tablet. On Windows. It even does this weird clicking/tool switching thing when I try to paint on the canvas. On Linux, it's properly recognized and works perfectly when I switch it to Screen.

I'm using Windows 7.

If anyone can help me as soon as possible, that'd be great.

I am an average user of GIMP and using 2.8 version. Can someone tell me how to re-edit the text. My text is on a separate layer, and I spent 3 hours trying to edit the texts which I created and I am frustrated now. Can someone advice please? Thanks in advance.

  Color Palettes
Posted by: leftyguitar - Jun 13, 2016 18:26 - Replies (6)

Hello good people,

I have red/green color blindness. I can see colors but I don't have a "keen sense" of them (as I was told way back in elementary school). This causes me all kinds of problems. I seem to recall ,but could be wrong,that in an earlier version of Gimp (but not the latest) the names of the colors would appear as the cursor is rolled over them when choosing. I know Photoshop has this feature but I prefer to use Gimp.
So if anyone knows a color palette which is available that can do this for me, I will be extremely grateful.
I have read that it's possible to convert some palettes to the gimp file format but as of yet I have not found the correct palette or file conversion tool.
This is it for now.

Thanks! [/undefined]

  Ransom ware after installing
Posted by: MrC - Jun 13, 2016 11:07 - Replies (2)


We downloaded and installed GIMP on a clients PC on Friday from the legitimate source on https://www.gimp.org

Now on Sunday, the whole PC was affected with ransom ware. AVG was installed, and detected some apparent false positives within GIMP (Mainly corrupted files, in fact I get the same detection's on my PC after installing to test).

The client does use the PC mainly for email, however we can't see anything that could have been opened which had caused this.

We're still looking into the cause, but wanted to check if anyone else here has experienced any issues or know of anything that could potentially link this with GIMP?
