GIMP, often referred to as "The GIMP", is an open-source image editing and painting program, with approximately the same capabilities as PhotoShop and PaintShop Pro. It is available for Linux, Microsoft Windows, and other platforms.
When trying to dock a "dockable dialog", you have to grab the tab of the dialog, not the dialog window.
- Q: How do you paint with transparency?
- A: Use the "eraser" tool - between the paintbrush and airbrush tools.
- Q: How do you dock the dockable dialogs (aka toolboxes)?
- A: Supposedly you can drop toolboxes onto a horizontal bar in the main toolbar, but this doesn't seem to work in some versions of Gimp (the bar may display a popup claiming you can do this, but it doesn't work). Alternatively, you can click on the left-pointing triangle-in-a-box on the right hand side of the main toolbar, which opens a menu that allows (among other things) adding any toolbox to the main toolbar as a tab.
- Q: How do you fix glowy red eyes in photographs?
- A: Filters -> Enhance -> Red-eye removal
- Q: After expanding the canvas (e.g. when making two images adjacent), the new part of the image seems to be undisplayable – anything placed there becomes invisible. How do you make it visible?
- How do you draw simple shapes, e.g. a circle? --Woozle 11:09, 14 July 2007 (EDT)
