  • Gimp issue.

    I am new to GIMP and I have a couple of questions and I’m not sure if this is where I should post this but here it goes.

    1. How do I get rid of checkered board background, it comes up automatically when I start GIMP.
    2. Whenever I try to apply a change I get a message saying item is locked. How do I unlock it?

    thanks

        I would if I could, but I haven't used it for a while. Have you tried googling it? There are usually lots of tutorial videos on line.
        I just did that and there are lots of videos.

        Just for a quick look I started my version 2.8. Under edit you have "preferences" the "display".
        Try that. Mine came up as a white backround on startup.

          The Gimp is lovely free software. It sounds to me as if you've created an image with a transparent background. It will automatically be protected because it is the original base layer so I suggest you duplicate the layer(Ctrl+J) to produce one that is unprotected then use the flood tool to fill it with a background colour of your choice. White would be my preference Now you can work away on that new layer to your hearts content.

          There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

            Thanks guys: The blade is not being pinched. I have parts list and diagram, the bearing on the crank linkage are sealed but I have on order a new linkage with bearings. Yes I oil the bushings every couple of weeks. I thought maybe the screws on the upper clamp might worn to much so I removed the two...

            Check the thumb screw in the upper holder. On the end is a tiny screw that must be perfectly flat. If it’s not it won’t grab the blade properly. I replace mine every few years. The problem this time is with #5 blades. The bottom of the blade is not even and I believe that is my problem. The other...
