Subject: RE: [Gimp-user] Fixing Deleted Left Behind Lines
more question if you don’t mind. If I have a problem when trying to
scale my image. I put all the images into a folder so that I can resize
them all together. When I do that I see the yellow box on one of the
layers not change size (it stays smaller than the image) and then the
rest of the layers you can’t even see the dotted yellow line (which I am
assuming is symbolizing the canvas right?). How do I go about getting
them to all size out the same so I can print them as PDFs to my desktop? Also,
What is a mask used for? Thanks for your help it is much appreciated. Best,
I'll forward this to the mailing list if you don't mind. (When replying to
the gimp-user mailing list, check to see that email@example.com is
included in the To: address. A fairly easy way to do this is to hit "Reply
All" instead of just "Reply".)
More on topic, I'm not sure you even have your terminology straight and that
makes it impossible for us to know for sure what you're trying to do. If by
"folder" you mean a folder icon in the Layers dialog, that is known as a "layer
group" and the individual "images" in it are layers. Layer groups have a blue
outline instead of yellow, however layer groups do not have a fixed size --
their size is derived automatically from the size and placement of the layers
Note that the image canvas doesn't have an outline at all, only layers do.
Yellow for individual layers, blue for layer groups.
Now yes, you can import several images into GIMP (each into a separate layer)
and then scale all of them uniformly by going to Image > Resize... . To export
them back out as individual images, you need to make sure that only one layer
is visible at a time (e.g. Shift+click the eye icon next to the layer's entry
in its list; this will hide all other layers) then use the "Export to..."
command to output the desired image. Repeat this with each layer.
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
