17 April 2013 - 09:44 AMIs there something I can do to stop the appearance of random straight lines? They appear to randomly leap out from the tablet pen curser to the edge of the screen. Pressure sensitivity does seem to work--everything works perfectly with the exception of these bizzare lines!
Those lines are called "Guides,". FYI.
To hide them click view>>>guides or press CTRL+SHIFT+T (I think thats the shortcut)
Hope this helps!
25 February 2013 - 10:34 PMOkay. So I downloaded some PNG images that I purchased and whenever I open them in GIMP, they have a checkered background. (Keep in mind, I am very new to GIMP) How do I use it on a blank background? This may not make sense!!!
The checkerboard pattern represents transparency in Gimp.
This means that where you see a checkerboard pattern, it would be whatever color is underneath the image where the checkerboard pattern is.
Hope that helps! Check out these gimp for beginners video tutorials to help you get started with gimp:
14 February 2013 - 08:15 PMJust like in Photoshop, you have to tell Gimp to deselect. To do this, press CTRL+SHFT+A or click select>>>none.
I recommend watching this gimp tutorial on selections:

09 February 2013 - 02:54 PMHi,
I had to make a flyer for an event i'm organising. Found a low quality picture online which i used as background, asked the photographer if i could use this picture, and asked for that picture in high res. I received the high res picture after the deadline for the flyer, so i was forced to make a temporary flyer from the low quality picture. I made some changes to the brightness/contrast of the picture, and might have changed other colour setting or used effects, but i can't remember which settings i changed nor the values i changed it to. Is there a way to retrieve this information from the picture/gimp so the colours for both images are exactly the same?
Flyer & original picture attached as example.

Hello! I can't remember if gimp keeps that data after closing the program or not, but if you can at least remember what tools you used, and perhaps what order you used them in, there is a drop-down menu on each color modification tool. If you click on that drop-down menu you will see a "history" of the settings you used. I believe they're organized and named by the date in which you used them. Give that a try.
27 November 2012 - 11:22 AMokay, I've drawn some drawings on gimp and I've tried to upload them to deviant art and some othersites, but it keeps saying that it cannot use this file.
Is there anyway to be able to upload it without this happening?
Before a file can be uploaded online, the file has to be converted to a useable file format, such as a .jpg
To do this - click file>>>export
In this window, type in .jpg after your file name This will export the file as a .jog image, which can be uploaded online.
