Gimp Paint Studio & Gimp Painter
Posted 17 April 2009 - 01:08 PM
I got GIMP for painters working on xp. The trick is that it doesn't modify your current GIMP install ( at least the gimp-painter--2.6.6_090321-2_win32_starter.exe doesn't ), it has GIMP 2.6.6 included. So what you do is unzip it into it's own directory and run it from the run_gimp.wsf. The GIMP 2.6.6 install that the script runs is located at Directory-you-unzipped-to/home/.gimp-2.6 so I'ld imagine that scripts and such would have to be installed in that version specifically.
Hopefully this is helpful information.

1. download the win 32 starter exe.
2. install in a folder
3. run the theme select and select a theme (chtheme)
4. run the script file (run gimp)
PS : I did not install over the original gimp 2.6.6

My friend and I are maintaining a project called Gimp Studio. It's hosted on codaset.com at:
It currently incorporates Gimp 2.6.8, GPS 1.3, gimp-painter- with some of our own patches, and some plugins.
Giniu, the co-maintainer, wishes to hack gimp-painter- apart, make it more streamlined and maintainable, and friendlier to future development. Since the original developer was sort of unresponsive to his e-mails, we've decided to fork it.
I've seen in this thread that someone has translated the docs, but the topic seems to be MIA. Could someone please tell us where we can find the English docs?
For starters, we are most interested in how Flow works (I myself haven't been able to produce visible results using that parameter), so if anyone knows what it does and how it should be used, I would appreciate any information.

For gimpainter is a bit harder because the author page is in japanise
so is a bit hard even understand which are doc to translate and which just link to something else.
But the good new is that he did also a few video showing and explaining how use gimpainter here the list http://www.youtube.com/user/Getchar
one in particular is about the mixbrush.
PS i see you include some script from FX
Not sure if you notice that all this scripts here http://users.telenet...effects_en.html quite useful in a "painter " version, require as dependency some extra Gimpimpressionist preset, that are included in original pack on this page, but went MIA in the fx foundry version (so they can't work or not as supposed )
So basically if you included that script , you should also include the gimpimpressionist presets

I love GPS :) Sadly due to all of the bits changing in 2.7 for 2.8 have rendered it pretty much incompatible with 2.7... But I believe improvements are worth the changes.
Gimp painter however is a huge hackish patch. Ive dug through it. It has bits in it that would be worth while in mainstream but separating and porting them to git version is too much work sadly.

Thanks for the tips. I still haven't tried all scripts from FX Foundry (too many of them, yay!), so your input is much appreciated.
I've managed to contact Yamakawa on the issue of gimp-painter- docs. He didn't seem overly enthusiastic, and a bit busy with other things, but I think we can decipher what we need with his help. Sadly, my Japanese is not that good even though I'm half-Japanese, but I hope I will somehow manage it.
Don't expect the full docs to be published in English by me. ;)

However, I can't seem to make the tool-presets work and that defeats the main purpose of GPS. I copied the tool-presets option to the GIMP root directory but it just doesn't show up in GIMP. I couldn't find the folder to where presets are saved. Help is appreciated. :)
Thanks in advance guys

If you're on Linux, you tool presets dir is:
On Windows, it's:
C:\Documents and Settings\
You can get presets working alongside your own by merging your preset files with the GPS preset files of the same name. We've done that to merge Chaos and Evolutions brushkit presets with those of GPS in Painters Studio.
You can get the merged assets + presets (and a few extras) from our google code repository. The installation procedure is same as GPS.
