Bug

Developers mailing list
Dear Developers,

 

I am using gimp since a long time, and I am loving it!

You’ve done a fantastic job with it! Thank you!

 

Currently I am using it on my iMac (v2.10.14) and my PC (v2.10.22).

 

I have noticed a bug on the iMac version:

When I am opening a pdf file, and select 300dpi resolution, then, when I go to Scale Image, I see that the resolution has changed to 72dpi, but the overall size in pixels remains the same.

Then, if I export this file it is converted into a massive file (in pixels) to compensate the drop of resolution. I do not have this problem with the PC version.

 

Could you please look into it and fix it?

 

Thank you,

Albert Einstein

Re: Bug

You are using a newer version on the PC than you are on the Mac.

Can you install a newer Mac version? It seems you may need to use Macports,
Homebrew, or Fink.
https://www.gimp.org/downloads/

I don't see anything obvious in the Changelogs, but if that doesn't work,
try version 2.10.14 on the PC and see if it behaves the same way. If it
does then the new version has already fixed the problem.

this is the following issue:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/-/issues/4194

Ironically, this was caused by a change done to prevent the current
default value of 300 ppi from unconditionally overwriting any value an
imported image might specify instead.

It is fixed as of 2.10.16, but unfortunately we currently do not have
anyone who can build the macOS packages.
