04 April 2013 - 08:36 AMThank you. I've established that the problem is with the Gimp setup. A new image doesn't work, and I've loaded Gimp on my machine at work and it's fine.
I've found the GIMP folder named GIMP2.8, but I don't know how to delete it ... Sorry to be so thick, but left and right clicks don't give me a delete option.
Thanks for your patience
04 April 2013 - 08:33 AMTwo possibilities: it's a problem with your Gimp setup or a problem with your image. To find which, close Gimp, start Gimp, File/New, and see if the problem persists. If not, then the problem is with your image: post the XCF somewhere so we can have a look. If yes, then it's a bad value in your Gimp setup. Close Gimp, erase your Gimp profile(*) and start over.Thank you. But I'mm still stuck. I have tried Select All and Select None. The bucket fill works normally and the paint tool is in Normal Mode. I can't use the pencil tool or the spray tool either, though I now find I can use the Ink tool. But I can't Erase the ink lines I draw. It's very frustrating. Any other ideas??
(*) to find it: Edit/Preferences->Folders (+expand)->Brushes. The right pane will list two folders, with one of them marked writable (and somewhere in your user directory tree). The parent of that folder is normally named .gimp-2.8, that's the one to erase.

31 March 2013 - 07:35 PMYou may have a small selection that you don't see (clue: in the Select menu, both "Select/All" and "Select/None" are available). If you switch to the bucket-fill, do you have a forbidden sign on the pointer when you try to bucket fill the same area?
Or your paintbrush is in some exotic mode (mode should be "Normal", see top of Tool options dialog. Can you use the Pencil?
07 August 2012 - 08:44 PMHi
I'm new to GIMP. I want to use it to create/test colour (or greyscale) separations for a woodcut, but I'm finding it hard.
For example I have attached a black and white image. kirsty.JPG
I open the image in GIMP, then from Image I choose mode - indexed, 4 colours. So far so good as this gives me the 4 greyscale levels I need to create a two block woodcut. Now I use the 'select by colour' tool to find the first colour, and I paste this into a new layer. That works fine. Then I select the next colour and try to paste that into a second new layer, but it doesn't work. It produces another layer called 'Floating Selection (pasted layer)' and won't paste the second or third layers.
How can I separate the 4 layers into individual images??
You need to anchor the floating selection. Little anchor icon bottom right in the layers dialog.
Why try and save as layers if you want individual images?
Using your image in indexed (4 colours) mode.
Select using the color-selection-tool
Paste as a new image. This will have transparency, so remove if required (colours -> transparency menu).
Repeat for next colour. (Select -> copy -> paste as new image)
If any of the colours are close to each other (ambiguous) bring up the colormap dialog and use the color picker tool. Clicking in the image brings up a border in the colormap for the corresponding colour. Use that location with the select-by-color tool.
My stab at what I think you mean.
Of course if you do want as layers you can always import the 4 separate images by using File -> open as layers.
Brilliant! Many thanks. Your stab is exactly what I needed.
