The Rectangle Select tool already makes pixel-perfect selections. So, unchecking "antialiasing" would make no difference anyway. Test it yourself and you will see. Select a rectangle and fill it with colour. Then zoom in and you will see the pixels are not anti-aliased, but solid. Example zoomed in on rectangular selection filled black, pixel grid ...

Reduce the image size by 50%. Then increase it by 50%. This should do it and will be quite easy.

This is not remotely solvable because we can see only what you show and that's not much of your system nor of your GIMP settings. I have only 2 things to try: Reset tool options, You can reset all options of all tools to their default state with a single click This is the general Preferences dialog. Resetting icon is also in Tool Options. Do the same for ...

The scripts work fine, but the lack of a preview in the settings window with so many options make them hard to use. I found this solution using predefined brushes much simpler: https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Lines-and-Arrows?pid=1359#pid1359 Once installed, you only need to use any draw tool like the Pencil and pick one of the arrows from the brush button:...

In GIMP text layers don't have a background colour. So, what you want isn't possible. To have a background you'd need to create a new layer under the text layer, select a rectangle to surround the text, then fill it with colour. If you change the text, you would need to delete the filled layer, make a new rectangle layer to fit the new text, and fill it ...

TL;DR: "Menu → Layer → Crop to Content" is extremely helpful. I've been working on a simple collage image for a classifieds site. The image is supposed to show an item from different angles. Naturally, my GIMP project has individual images as Layers, cropped them and added a background. My original images were approximately 8 MPix (~5 Mbytes) each. ...

You can save it as jpg with high compression. Eventually, shrinking and enlarging it would do the job

Try to use Filters>Blur>Pixelize with a block one pixel wide and four pixels high (you have to unlink the entry field (chain link icon on the right) to allow their values to be different). (Image By Kremlin.ru, CC BY 4.0)

Like this: Yields: Of course all this is really based on the layers borders and not the layer opaque contents, so you lay want to do Layer>Autocrop layer first.

Photopea quite surprisingly opens your EPS as a high stack of layers. Every layer contains a bitmap shape which is masked by a path. It's quite same as Photoshop's vector shapes. A lucky case here is that shapes which belong to the same letter are adjacent layers. I selected those which belong to the P: The shapes can be moved freely, even a multiple ...

You do not necessarily want to use Gimp or Photopea for this. Those are raster applications and will not take advantages of the vector nature of the objects in the EPS file. If you must use a raster image editor, you will need to select and copy each letter as you need it, then move it into position. This can be done, but is much more effort. The entire eps ...

A simple way is to add a vertical/horizontal guide and snap the text layers to that. The Align tool can work but is often not used properly, once the tool is activated, you have to select all the text layers (click on the first, shift-click others). Layers selected for alignment have 4 squares in the corners, and are not necessarily the "active" ...

I found it out. The most recent version of Gimp has a problem where not all of the original tools shows up.

As I did not have a Photoshop Licence and I was starting to lose too much time on this, I found a website that allowed me to generate embedded screen shots in the iphone pic: mockuphone.com (I am not affilied by any way to this website, just found that it did exactly what I wanted and for free)

Hold the Shift key and click on the chain icon next to any layer. It will affect all the layers.

NoHalo and LoHalo are the new GEGL samplers, developed by Nicolas Robidoux to reduce the blur in the resampled images. Nohalo level 1 consists of one diagonal straightening subdivision followed by bilinear interpolation, as described in this paper: Like many edge-enhancing methods, Nohalo has two main stages: first, nonlinear interpolation is used to ...

In the Tool options, I see you have the Dynamics set to "Basic Dynamics". Set it to "Dynamics off" instead.

MyPaint brushes are an implementation of brushes available in software called MyPaint, basically to allow them to be used directly in GIMP, rather having to install and use MyPaint. They are totally separate from GIMP's native brushes, and are accessed using the MyPaint brush tool, as opposed to the regular Brush tool used for GIMP's native brushes. You ...
