  Finding Font
Posted by: blgriffin83 - Yesterday 17:24 - Replies (1)

I created a GIMP file some time back using a specific font. Fast forward to today, I am using a new computer which apparently doesn't have the font installed. When I open the GIMP file, the font is still applied within the design but it can't be edited and I can't remember the font's name.

Is there anyway to identify the font at this point?

  Drawing tablets
Posted by: wjckc - Apr 16, 2018 11:16 - Replies (1)

I have been using the Gimp extensively for the better part of 20 years. I am looking to jump in with a drawing tablet. Can anyone recommend something under $100 known to work? Both Linux and Windows specific questions are okay as I use both.

So I've been working on this picture, but there's just one thing that just doesn't work.


I want to make this black bat red. So I select it with fuzzy select.


I choose my desired shade of red and select the bucket tool, all is going according to plan.


I click on the selected bat with my red bucket and...


This isn't just happening with red, with yellow it becomes white and with green it becomes light grey. What am I missing here so I can make the bat the actual color I'm selecting?

  Steps for enlarging and reducing brushes
Posted by: buddyM - Apr 12, 2018 07:58 - Replies (1)

Hello folks,

I use the shortcuts ALT GR-[ and ALT GR-] (WIN) for enlarging and reducing brushes of all kinds.

Unfortunately, the whole thing happens in 1 pixel steps. I would like to change this and increase it to 3 to maybe 5 pixels. Can I put this anywhere?

I searched in vain in the preferences.

Thank you

PS: I use Gimp 2.10 RC1 if this is important for the matter.

  Can't Open One JPEG Image
Posted by: amber1999 - Apr 12, 2018 02:37 - Replies (1)


I'm trying to open a JPEG file and this error keeps coming up. It's not happening with any other files, just this one in particular. I'm wondering if anyone has experience this problem before and has found a solution?

  Opening a 300dpi JPG changes to 72ppi?
Posted by: Ilpoxi - Apr 11, 2018 13:22 - Replies (1)

I make 300dpi JPG-s from CorelDraw. After export from CorelDraw I check the resolution once again in the Win Resource Management from file's properties and it's 300dpi. When I open this JPG in GIMP and check the Properties from PIcture> (or Image>) Properties, the resolution is 72x72PPI. Why? I have done this 10 times to check it.

I have configured in GIMP program properties that a new document will be 300x300DPI. But this doesn't help.

If I open a photograph taken with 300dpi cellphone camera in Gimp, the resolution seems to be 300DPI.

Somehow my 300 DPI CorelDRaw Graphics are changed to 72PPI. Frustrating!

  Imported brushes, not all working
Posted by: novaseens - Apr 9, 2018 14:26 - Replies (2)

Hi all, so I recently got into GIMP 2 and went for brushes and saw the Cartography Brushes Pack for a RP map link below.

After placing them in the "Users\Accname\.gimp-2.8\brushes" I loaded up GIMP to use but instead of them being mountain each dot that drew the mountain was increated in size like this https://i.imgur.com/ucE67Py.png instead of amountain out the the pack. I reinstalled the pack but the same thing happened. This goes for a few other brushes I got aswell not all.

Please help

  Drawing Circle Around Object
Posted by: Rondo - Apr 7, 2018 18:33 - Replies (1)

I have a geodesic dome sketch and want to extend the wings. The problem is that the new Windows Paint is a joke and will not allow transparent overlays. I am new at Gimp and would like to use it to draw the circumference circle so I can make uniform extensions. It would be the equivalent of drawing a square and then putting a circle around it.
