GIMP :: Print / Canvas Size - Picture Cut Off (4x6 Paper)

Dec 20, 2013

I used scale image to make a 2.314" x 3" image to print so it'll fit in a frame that I have for that same size. When I print it out the size looks great but it's over on the edge of the 4x6 paper and most of the picture is cut off. I tried, I should use print size and not canvas size but when I change the print size to 4x6 it also changes my canvas size back to 4x6. I still have my original so I can do this again but what I want is a 2.314"x3" image to print out on my 4x6 glossy paper.

GIMP :: Crashes Every Time Try To Open A File?

Sep 4, 2013

I am running 2.8 with Windows 7 64 bit. This just started today. I had done a picture, then closed out gimp. When I reopened it, I could no longer open files in Gimp. I can start gimp, then click on open files, and scroll through the files, and as soon as I select one, it whites out and says Gimp has stopped responding. I uninstalled and reinstalled the program, same issue. I tried jpeg, png, and xfc files, none will load.

GIMP :: How To Open A Picture And Zoom Out To 45%

Mar 9, 2013

Would I be able to open a picture and zoom out to 45%. Then open a new layer with a new picture, and keep it at 100%?

Every time I try to change the 2nd layer image to 100% then over lay the first layer, the first layer automatically goes to 100%. Is there a way to keep one layer at 100% and another at 45%?

Photoshop :: Moving Or Zooming Canvas Crashes The System?

Mar 7, 2012

my entire system locks up.It seems to work fine at the start, but it will lock up on me on random. I tried finding out what the exact problem was, and it seems that moving about the canvas in any way always seems to be the cause. I also often get this while I try to save, in the saving process I would move my canvas around, and it would lock up on me. Thus making my .psd-file corrupt/unreadable.

I tried different methods to approach this, but no luck. One is installing the latest video driver, but it already seemed to be up-to-date. Second would be disabling certain plugins in Photoshop, like the FastCore and the MMXCore ones.

Basic system specs:

VGA: GeForce GTX 580
CPU: Intel Core i7 3930K
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 DELUXE
RAM memory: 8GB
Operation system: Windows 7 ultimate.
Photoshop CS5

Paint.NET :: Canvas Size Changes When Import Picture?

Feb 2, 2012

It use to be that when I would import a picture that was larger than the current canvas size I was dealing with it, it would ask me if I wanted to enlarge the canvas size or not. Now it just automatically is changing the canvas size and it's driving me nuts because I don't want it to do that!

Photoshop :: Picture Package :: Add Multiple Pictures To Canvas For Printing

Dec 13, 2004

How can I automatically add different pictures in a single canvas using Picture package? i.e. I have about 48 pictures and I want to place 4 different pictures to each [10 X 8 - "4(4X5)"] canvas so that I can send all 48 pictures for printing at a digital studio. When I try, multiple copies of single picture appear on each canvas. I tried 'contact sheet' but not satisfied with the result as I could not change the length and width of the pictures.

GIMP :: Apply One Picture Environment Lighting Properties To Another Picture

Feb 6, 2012

Is there a relatively simple, automated tool in gimp to apply one picture's environment lighting properties to another picture?

So for example if i cut out an object from one picture that has pretty warm lighting environment, and put it in a cold light background it will look pretty out of place obviously, and this is what I would like to resolve.

GIMP :: Make A Pattern Around Picture Placing It On A Picture Of Board

Feb 12, 2013

What I want to do, is take the path tool, make a pattern around a picture (which is rectangle) placing it on a picture of a board like this...and then pull the picture horizontally, and vertically, to make it circular, to fit the perimeter of the board. If I understand it correctly, when you use the path allows you to make an image round (from rectangular) is that true?

GIMP :: How To Rotate Canvas

With all the interface options, I'm having trouble finding one I think was available in previous versions: rotating the canvas.

Is it in the menu somewhere? Is there a shortcut?

I'm already very impressed (and somewhat overwhelmed) by all the features I've seen so far in Gimp.

GIMP :: Canvas Size In 2.8

Sep 6, 2012

HAving just installed 2.8 after using 2.6, I find all scanned images and existing jpeg files I created in 2.6 are displayed at ridiculously large dimensions. In 2.6, all scanned images were loaded on screen at their actual A4 size, regardless of scan resolution. In 2.8 they are loading up on screen at around 5 times the actual size - it seems I have to scale the image back down to A4 before I can start editing it? I tested this on A4 jpeg files I created on 2.6, and they also load on screen at massively enlarged sizes. how to get these images to display at their actual sizes?

GIMP :: How To Cut Canvas In The Middle

Mar 16, 2013

I have an image with many layers. I want to cut a vertical strip out of the middle of one of the layers because I want to narrow the transparent gap between the left side of that layer and the right side. That is, my image has stuff on the left side and stuff on the right and a gap in the middle through which shows the pattern in the layers below, and I want to narrow that middle gap. I want to do the same thing as cutting a vertical strip down the middle of that top layer with scissors so I can scrunch the sides together, so less of the patterns on the layers behind shows through.

Is there any way to do this? It doesn't work when I simply select the area I want to cut and click "cut" or "clear" - those commands don't get rid of the canvas in that section, just the contents, which are transparent anyway.

I'm trying to avoid resizing the canvas and then laboriously reconstructing the layer with all the finicky alignment issues, because that seems unnecessarily time-consuming, when all I need to do is remove a gap in a blank section. I tried using guides to guillotine the image, but that, too, is turning out to be time-consuming in terms of reassembling the image. I know I must be missing something obvious - how does one simply remove a selection of the canvas (and not of the image itself) with the selection tool?

GIMP :: How To Fit Canvas To Image

Feb 6, 2013

basically what I did was I wanted a certain part of an image and I used the eraser tool along with adding the alpha channel so I can get rid of everything in the image but a cropped version of it (basically erasing around what I want to keep). How do I fit the canvas to this oddly shaped image now?

You can say I want to create an icon but when I save it as a .png or .jpg, I get this white background replacing the alpha channel when I just want the cropped image itself. I tried going about using the free select tool, going around the image and then using the "Fit Canvas to Selection" option but that just takes way too long.

GIMP :: How To Put First Layer On Top Of Canvas

Nov 22, 2012

I have an image with 85 layers, let's say they are all 100x100 pixels.

The layers are all aligned on the top and left borders of the canvas.

The canvas is 100 pixels wide and 8500 pixels tall.

I want to put the first layer on the top of the canvas, then the secondlayer with its top border aligned with the bottom border of the firstlayer. Then the third layer just below the second one, etc. So that all 85layers are spread on the full height of the canvas.

Actually, some layers are less than 100 pixels tall. I still want thelayers to be one next to the other. So if my first layer is 60 pixels tall,the second layer must be moved at 0,60 in the canvas. And if the second oneis 90 pixels tall, the third one must me moved at 0,150.

How can I do that? Is there a plugin? It doesn't seem very hard to code in Scheme.

GIMP :: Unable To Click On The Canvas?

Dec 27, 2011

I don't seem to be able to click on the canvas in GIMP. I installed a tablet(Wacom Bamboo) and assumed that the pen wasn't working correctly until I realised that I couldn't click with my mouse either. The mouse and tablet work fine in other programs. It didn't have the problem until I installed the driver for the tablet(I think). I can use any feature that doesn't involve clicking on the canvas(adjusting curves, scaling, changing the saturation, etc.), I just can't do things like make a selection, or use the paintbrush.

I'm using GIMP 2.6.11 on Ubuntu 11.04.

GIMP :: Aligning Text With The Canvas

Mar 19, 2011

Just wanted to align some text with the canvas. Thinking I'd simply overlooked the feature, How do you align a layer to the canvas? Specifically, a text layer.

The answers I found:

Use mouse to drag layer to the center of canvas. (This does not result in the accuracy for which I was hoping, unless I do some math to determine and pinpoint the proper location and try to keep my hand steady.)

Cut, copy, paste. (This renders the text uneditable.)

There isn't an align feature?

GIMP :: Canvas Not Redrawing With Tablet Use In 2.8.4?

Feb 17, 2013

After updating to GIMP2.8.4 I am seeing a constant problem with the canvas not updating after any change unless I move the cursor out of the image area. It starts updating immediately but if I move the cursor back it stops even if it hasn't finished redrawing. This is not just for image changes; the selection outline does not update either unless I move the cursor out of the image area! There's another problem with the selection outline - sometimes it just stops displaying, period, and I ave to use quick mask or save and close GIMP.

GIMP :: Canvas Size Is Wrong On 2.8?

Sep 7, 2012

I'm having problems with gimp 2.8 I've just installed on my new laptop. I'm an artist and use scanned images to colour in GIMP, and in version 2.6 these were displayed with the actual canvas size (A4) and scan resolution. I work with these images and often need to increase the canvas size. In 2.8 the scanned images are displaying with a canvas size around 5 times larger than A4 - I think this is because GIMP is saying the resolution is 72ppi, whereas I scan at 300-400 ppi. My finished jpeg files all display on 2.8 at larger canvas sizes aswell. how to get GIMP to recognize this automatically so that the actual canvas size is shown?

GIMP :: Drop A Layer From One Canvas To Another

May 11, 2012

I am converting from Photoshop and there is one common task i used all of the time which i cannot seem to figure out in Gimp. I have two canvases open, each with a few layers. I select the move tool and then start dragging the layer on one canvas to try to drop it into the other canvas. In Photoshop when you do this it creates a new layer on the dropped canvas consisting of the dropped layer, and the layer resets to its original position on the first canvas.

In Gimp however when I try this its as if i dropped the layer way outside of the viewable area of the first canvas, and nothing gets added to the second canvas i want to drop it into.

GIMP :: How To Select Exactly On The Edges Of Canvas

How to select exactly on the edges of the canvas ?

Lets say I create layer 1 , 640 x 480 and fill with white . Now I create a new layer, layer two, and I only want to select the whole top section (ie right from top, so the selection will be 640 wide, and lets say 50 down ? Just not sure how I can select right on the edges (i.e. on the edges of the canvas).

GIMP :: Unable To Edit Layers Outside The Canvas

Jun 9, 2013

why are we not able to edit layers outside the canvas?

I often create images were the canvas size is fixed (e.g. display resolution). I then add layers to it that are often larger than the canvas. I would now want to select the superfluous parts of the just added images (e.g. to make them transparent), but I can't select parts of the layers that are not on canvas!

I also can not see any layer content that is off-canvas. A workflow I'd prefer would be copy everything somewhere (not necessarily inside the canvas) and then align it layer by layer, which is hard when one can not see the content of the off-canvas layers.
