  Gimp 2.8.14 Will not Recognize My Pen Tablet
Posted by: EluNiabi - Yesterday 18:59 - Replies (1)

Okay, I am having an issue with the newest version of Gimp, Gimp 2.8.14. I have downloaded it a few months ago and just recieved my pen tablet for christmas. For some reason, Gimp i s not recognizing my pen tablet to get the pen pressure and sensitivity. I have searched online before coming here to see if I could find any tips on how to get my pen tablet to be recognized by the program. I know how to get the pen tablet connect, but when you go to "Edit/Preferences/Input Devices/Configure Extended Input Devices" it shows me only the cursor, or the mouse pointer. Why won't Gimp recognize my pen tablet?

I am using a PenPro Series Professional Pen Tablet. It's model is 1060pro+.

So can any one help?

  hope GIMP allows language change within the program
Posted by: kenny1999 - Jan 30, 2015 14:49 - Replies (1)

instead of deleting the folders of my current language, I hope GIMP would allow change of language within the program in the next release so that I can change the language easily between English and Chinese

Just a suggestion.

  New to GIMP - Need help
Posted by: South - Jan 26, 2015 14:37 - Replies (1)

Hi GIMP Community,

As stated, I'm new to GIMP and have one question. How do you edit text on a logo that has been imported through your computer?

Long story short, to familiarize myself with GIMP, I went on google, found a random image, uploaded it to mess around with. The image I uploaded has text on it and I don't know how to edit it / remove it completely, without erasing any of the design behind / around the text.

Any suggestions?

P.S: I'm using the latest version.

  Why is Gimp drawing jagged lines?
Posted by: riveter - Jan 24, 2015 20:50 - Replies (5)

Gimp was working fine and then started drawing jagged diagonals. I have Dynamics off and jitter off. Does the same thing with mouse or tablet. I don't think I enabled any crazy setting, but who knows?

See video of the problem here:

  Colormap information and alteration
Posted by: foxmulder - Jan 24, 2015 06:25 - Replies (1)

Hello gimp world!

I am working on a puzzle where information is hidden in an image. I know that the key to finding the information involves editing or viewing information about the image's colormap. I have researched the subject for hours, but not coming from a graphic manipulation background, I'm simply lost. I have found that I need to do something with "ax" and "ix" values and those date have led me to matlab manipulation. I even tried using some free versions of matlab to try to suss this manipulation, but I struck out every time.

So my questions to the experts are: Does "ax" and "ix" make sense in the colormap realm? I assume I'm on the right track, as those are definitely values defined by the puzzle, but I could be off the deep end. If that is related to colormapping, is this something I can manipulate in gimp or do I need to use something more sophisticated?

Any info someone has would be very helpful. I can provide the images if necessary. They are pngs with an alpha channel.

Thanks in advance!

i want to study the technique used, because the result is very interesting

Photo GIMP windows disappearing on startup
Posted by: PizzaMagix - Jan 23, 2015 01:18 - Replies (1)

i apologize if this is not the right place to do it, I'm still a newbie and I don't think it belongs in newbie quesions

This a ridiculous question, but it is a really annoying problem problem I've been having, every time i want to edit a photo with gimp, the main window opens on the side of the screen where i can barley reach it.

I'm having a very hard time locating it and it's so annoying to find it each time. If there is a solution to the problem, please reply to this thread or something. would be much appreciated!
