Как пользоваться редактором gimp и есть ли жизнь без photoshop

Updated user interface and initial HiDPI support¶

One thing immediately noticeable about GIMP 2.10 is the new dark theme and
symbolic icons enabled by default. This is meant to somewhat dim the environment
and shift the focus towards content.

There are now 4 user interface themes available in GIMP: Dark (default), Gray,
Light, and System. Icons are now separate from themes, and we maintain both
color and symbolic icons, so you can configure GIMP to have System theme with
color icons if you prefer the old look.


Color, Legacy, and Symbolic icons

Moreover, icons are available in four sizes now, so that GIMP would look better
on HiDPI displays. GIMP will do its best to detect which size to use, but you
can manually override that selection in Edit > Preferences > Interface >
Icon Themes.


Icons in various sizes to adapt for HiDPI displays.

Плюсы и минусы

К сильным сторонам GIMP 2.8 можно отнести:

  1. Возможность работы, как с растровой графикой, так и в определенном объеме, с векторной.
  2. Простой и понятный интерфейс. Он выполнен в традициях лидеров специализированного платного программного обеспечения и приятно радует продуманностью и эргономичностью.
  3. Русификация. Это здорово экономит время в работе, когда не нужно вспоминать английские термины или искать нечастую команду.
  4. Весьма сложные встроенные фильтры и способы обработки изображений.
  5. Небольшой размер.
  6. Совместимость со всеми популярными операционными системами. Допускается разрядность 32 bit и 64 bit.
  7. Наличие дополнительных модулей, которых нет в базовой версии. Но они легко устанавливаются по мере необходимости.

Технически, недостатков не так много:

  1. На полноценную замену Фотошоп он не тянет, и если предполагается максимально глубоко работать с графикой, то могут возникнуть проблемы.
  2. Ограниченная применяемость в полиграфии по причине невысокой поддерживаемой глубины цвета на канал.

В случае сомнений всегда можно установить программу и протестировать её, самостоятельно приняв решение о целесообразности использования.

OpenCL now considered experimental¶

Since GIMP 2.10.0, several GEGL operations have OpenCL code paths,
hopefully allowing faster processing. Unfortunately OpenCL situation is
not so idyllic because of the lack of contributions to improve our code
as well as faulty drivers.

In various cases, enabling OpenCL in GIMP could lead to instability. We
decided it was not acceptable anymore and moved the feature into the
Playground tab of the Preferences dialog. Technically it means that
the feature is hidden unless you run GIMP with
command line option, so that anyone enabling this is really aware of the
instability of the feature. Hopefully we will be able at some point to
move this back into mainline Preferences.

Files¶

GIMP’s data files are stored in /usr/share/gimp/2.0, where ${datarootdir} is set on install, but is typically /usr/share. GIMP’s system-wide configuration files are stored in /etc/gimp/2.0, where ${prefix} is typically /usr.

Most GIMP configuration is read in from the user’s init file, $HOME/.gimp-2.6/gimprc. The system wide equivalent is in /etc/gimprc. The system wide file is parsed first and the user gimprc can override the system settings. /etc/gimprc_user is the default gimprc placed in users’ home directories the first time GIMP is run.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/devicerc — holds settings for input devices together with the tool, colors, brush, pattern and gradient associated to that device.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/gtkrc — users set of GIMP-specific GTK+ config settings. Options such as widget color and fonts sizes can be set here.

/etc/gimp/2.0/gtkrc — sytem wide default set of GIMP-specific GTK+ config settings.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/menurc — user’s set of keybindings.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/parasiterc — Stores all persistent GIMP parasites. This file will be rewritten every time you quit GIMP.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/sessionrc — This file takes session-specific info (that is info, you want to keep between two GIMP sessions). You are not supposed to edit it manually, but of course you can do. This file will be entirely rewritten every time you quit GIMP. If this file isn’t found, defaults are used.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/templaterc — Image templates are kept in this file. New images can conveniently created from these templates. If this file isn’t found, defaults are used.

/etc/gimp/2.0/unitrc — default user unit database. It contains the unit definitions for centimeters, meters, feet, yards, typographic points and typographic picas and is placed in users home directories the first time GIMP is ran. If this file isn’t found, defaults are used.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/unitrc — This file contains your user unit database. You can modify this list with the unit editor. You are not supposed to edit it manually, but of course you can do. This file will be entirely rewritten every time you quit GIMP.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins — location of user installed plug-ins.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/pluginrc — plug-in initialization values are stored here. This file is parsed on startup and regenerated if need be.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/modules — location of user installed modules.

$HOME/.gimp-2.6/tmp — default location that GIMP uses as temporary space.

/usr/share/gimp/2.0/brushes — system wide brush files.

GEGL port, high bit depth support, multi-threading, and more¶

The ultimate goal for v2.10 was completing the port to GEGL image processing
library, started with v2.6 when we introduced optional use of GEGL for color
tools and an experimental GEGL tool, and continued with v2.8 where we added
GEGL-based projection of layers.

Now GIMP uses GEGL for all tile management and builds an acyclic graph for
every project. This is a prerequisite for adding non-destructive editing planned
for v3.2.

There are many benefits from using GEGL, and some of them you can already enjoy
in GIMP 2.10.

High bit depth support allows processing images with up to 32-bit per color
channel precision and open/export PSD, TIFF, PNG, EXR, and RGBE files in their
native fidelity. Additionally, FITS images can be opened with up to 64-bit per
channel precision.

Multi-threading allows making use of multiple cores for processing. Not all
features in GIMP make use of that, it’s something we intend to work on further.
A point of interest is that multi-threading happens through GEGL processing, but
also in core GIMP itself, for instance to separate painting from display code.

GPU-side processing is still optional, but available for systems with stable
OpenCL drivers.

You can find configuration options for multi-threading and hardware acceleration
in Edit > Preferences > System Resources.

Miscellaneous¶

Plug-in Development

GIMP 2.8 also further enhances its scripting abilities. For example, API changes to support layer groups have been made. Here is a list of new symbols in GIMP 2.8.

GEGL

The projection code which composes a single image from layers has been ported to GEGL. This includes the layer modes, as well as support for layer groups. Also, preparations have been made for better and more intuitive handling of the floating selection.
Developers: Michael Natterer, Martin Nordholts

Roadmap

The GIMP developers now maintain a roadmap for GIMP development found here: https://wiki.gimp.org/index.php/Roadmap

Metadata viewing, editing, and preservation¶

GIMP now ships with plug-ins for viewing and editing Exif, XMP, IPTC, GPS, and
DICOM metadata. They are available via the Image > Metadata submenu.

GIMP will also preserve existing metadata in TIFF, PNG, JPEG, and WebP files.
Each plug-in has respective options when exporting to enable or disable
exporting the metadata.

Additionally, users now can set defaults to preserving or not preserving
metadata in all affected file format plug-ins at once depending on whether they
want complete privacy or, instead, do a lot of microstock photography. The
settings are available on the Image Import & Export page in Preferences.

Contributors: Benoit Touchette, Michael Natterer, Jehan Pagès…

Extensions¶

Extensions are a new file format that is simply a wrapper of data
(brushes, splash screens, patterns, dynamics…) or plug-ins, associated
with metadata (name, description, screenshots, version, requirements…).
The goal will be to allow plug-in developers to publish their work on
repositories for anyone to search third-party plug-ins,
install/uninstall, enable/disable and update them, all within GIMP.

The menu shows the base dialog. In the
“System Extensions” tab in particular, you will notice an “Official Demo
Plug-ins” which is our first extension. It in fact bundles all the Goat
Exercises plug-ins we talked about earlier. If you switch if off, you
will notice after a restart (right now you have to restart GIMP to see
the effect) that the menu category disappeared.

The Goat Exercises are themselves a system extension.

We’ll get back to talking about this feature after we’ve done more work
on it. In particular, we will provide documentation on how to create
extensions. It is definitely something plug-in and resource creators
should look forward to, as it will help share their creations with others.

Status: still more work to do on the GIMP side, especially for
communicating with repositories, and much more work to be done for the
official repository and the website for extensions.

Работа с программой

Интерфейс программы несколько непривычен и может быть сложным для новичков. По умолчанию он состоит из трёх отдельных окон: главного окна с рабочей зоной, в которой вы можете обрабатывать изображение или создавать новые рисунки, а также двух окон, в которых можно выбирать необходимые для работы инструменты.

Именно такое расположение и вызывает больше всего дискомфорта. Чтобы переключаться в более привычный однооконный режим, особенно если раньше вы хоть немного работали в Photoshop, в главном окне программы перейдите в меню «Окна», после чего активируйте функцию «Однооконный режим».

После этого два окна инструментами, которые располагались по бокам экрана, примкнут к основному окну и станут его элементами.

Теперь давайте посмотрим, какую структуру имеет рабочий экран редактора Gimp.

  • В самом верху окна располагается главное меню с такими вкладками: Файл, Правка, Выделение, Вид, Изображение, Слой, Цвет, Инструменты, Фильтры, Окна и Справка. В каждой из этих вкладок располагаются другие функции, которые можно использовать для работы. 
  • В левой стороне экрана, в его верхней части, располагается панель инструментов, в которой можно выбрать все необходимые для обработки графического файла инструменты: перемещение, поворот, вырезание, дублирование, карандаш, кисть, ластик, заливка, штамп, текст, а также многие другие. 
  • Ниже панели инструментов располагается панель настройки инструмента. Она предоставляет возможность настройки отдельного инструмента и активируется при его выборе в панели выше. Здесь же можно создать несколько профилей настройки каждого инструмента. 
  • В правой части экрана вверху располагается панель управления слоями, контурами, каналами и историей ваших изменений. 
  • Чуть ниже можно выбирать различные кисти, градиенты, а также текстуры. 
  • В самом низу предоставлены инструменты управления профилями кисти. Можно также создать несколько профилей с настройками для различной ситуации.

Чтобы отредактировать готовое изображение, нажмите «Файл» — «Открыть».

Для создания нового нажмите Ctrl + N либо же «Файл» — «Создать».

После окончания изменений сохраните файл в желаемом формате.

GIMP for Textile Design¶

Author: Frederick L. ChipkinFormat: Spiral-bound, 112pp.ISBN-10: 0-97273-172-5ISBN-13: 978-0-97273-172-0Publisher/Date: Origin inc/2008Website: http://origininc.tripod.com/GIMP/GIMP_BOOK_MAIN/GBOOK.htm

Description: The book GIMP for Textile Design is a collection of lessons that will take you from simple textile design techniques to the more advanced design techniques needed to take on the most challenging textile design projects. Everything is explained in a simple uniform manner so that nothing is overwhelming to the textile designer just starting out and so that the more experienced textile designer can grasp key concepts more quickly.

The Artists’ Guide to the GIMP¶

Author: Michael J. HammelFormat: Paperback, 340pp.ISBN: 1-578-31011-3Publisher/Date: Specialized Systems Consultants, Incorporated/December 1998Website: http://www.artistsguidetogimp.com/

Description: The Artists’ Guide to the GIMP covers all of the basics a new user needs to get started, from detailed descriptions of Toolbox features to using selections to a complete explanation of Layers and Channels. Chapters on color functions and drawing and painting methods show how to make the most of this wonderful alternative to similar applications for other platforms. Several examples of plug-ins high resolution, four-color glossy prints serve as tutorials and inspiration to any reader. Add to these the extensive discussions on printing and scanning, and the result is a text that will be an integral part of any graphic artist’s tool chest.

Object oriented syntax¶

Gimp-Perl provides an alternative object-oriented syntax for the image and the drawable commands. Here is a table showing the procedural vs the object oriented syntax for a few commands:

procedural syntax object oriented syntax
gimp_image_insert_layer($drw,0,0); $img->insert_layer($drw,0,0);
gimp_drawable_width($drw); $drw->width;

The substitution rule for converting a PDB into a method is as simple as erasing (or sometimes ) from the beginning of the function call and calling this method through the image object. Similarly for the gimp_drawable_... functions. See the for more detail.

Note that the object-oriented syntax appears to be only syntactic sugar that makes the calling syntax cleaner. The error messages are still given in the procedural format. What is going on is that GIMP, and the library on which it is implemented (Glib), use C in an object-oriented fashion.

GIMP Pocket Reference¶

General Improvements¶

Refreshed Look

A whole new default icon theme has been created for 2.4. The icons comply with the Tango style guidelines so GIMP doesn’t feel out of place on any of the supported platforms. Regardless of whether you run GIMP under Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X or GNU/Linux (GNOME, KDE or Xfce), GIMP provides a polished, consistent look.

Additionally the icons also have enhanced usability on dark widget themes, which is a common setting among digital artists.

For artists preferring more desaturated color theme for their icons, an alternative icon theme is available for download.

Scalable Brushes

The tool options now include a brush size slider that affects both the parametric and bitmap brushes. This has been an oft-requested feature from both digital painters and photo editors.

Unlike previous versions of GIMP, regardless of whether you’re using a bitmap brush, parametric brush or even a picture tube (multiple bitmaps), you can easily set the brush size with either the tool options dock slider or an external device such as a MIDI slider or knob or a USB device like the Griffin Powermate.

Selection Tools

The selection tools have been rewritten from scratch to allow resizing of existing selections. Additionally the rectangular selection tool includes a setting for creating rounded corners as this has been identified as a very common task among web designers.

The learning curve for the tools has been flattened as the key functionality is available without obscure shortcuts that confused GIMP beginners. Most of the existing shortcuts still work, but the functionality is either available through the tool options or made obsolete due to the interactive move and resize on canvas.

While the tools have been redesigned to make them easier to understand for the newbies, all the former functionality is there. You can still constrain aspect ratios or specific sizes.

Foreground Select Tool

Selecting individual objects on images is easier now with a new foreground select tool. It is done in two steps. First, you make select region of interest which contains the entire object. Then you paint over selected area with a brush, not crossing object’s border. Release mouse button when you’re done and look, if there are dark blue spots on your objects. If there are some, paint with a brush over them again and release to refine selection. When there are no more blue areas inside the object, press Enter and there you have a perfectly selected object.

All video demonstrations can also be viewed or downloaded from a separate page.

Align Tool

While GIMP has provided a grid and guideline functionality, the actual alignment of objects had to be done manually. In a few clicks, the new Align Tool allows you to align or distribute a list of layers, paths or guides. You can align these objects with another object, with the selection or with the image.

Changes in menus

Most notable is the new top-level Color menu that accumulates most tools, plug-ins and scripts that adjust colors in RGB/Grayscale mode and color palettes in Indexed mode. So now you can reach functions like Levels or Curves much faster than before. You can also define your own keyboard shortcuts for them using the improved keyboard shortcuts manager.

In the new version of GIMP, some menu entries have changed their names and position. It was done mostly to simplify learning curve and improve user experience. After all, “HSV Noise” and “RGB Noise” sound more meaningful than “Scatter HSV” and “Scatter RGB”, don’t they? And status bar hints for all plug-ins and scripts are quite helpful too.

Improved display when zooming in or out

Previous versions of GIMP used a fast but inaccurate way of displaying images at various zoom levels. When zooming out, some rows and columns of pixels where simply omitted from the display. The result was sometimes confusing, especially if the image contained many thin lines or small features. GIMP 2.4 avoids these problems and provides a better view of the zoomed-out images.

Support for file formats

  • Support for Photoshop ABR brush format;
  • Improved reading/writing EXIF in JPEG;
  • Importing clipping paths in TIFF;
  • Layer masks can be saved to PSD;
  • 16/32 bit bitmaps and alpha-channel support in BMP;
  • 24 bit and Vista icons can be opened and saved.
