Re: gimp-user-list Digest, Vol 111, Issue 16

Users mailing list
I seem to have got some form of response inviting me to ask my question but I don't understand how to reply to continue the thread.  It is nog obvious and far from user friendly.   I have been enjoying the software and found the tutorial on making a circular picture to be straight forward and exactly what I needed at the time.  However when I attempted the tutorial on how to make a floating banner I ran into trouble.  The bar map failed to work as described by the tutorial.  There was no preview.  And I didn't know what the spinner was in the bump map dialogue box so was unable to select visible.   It did click on the box I think was referred to in the diagram but no visible appeared there.  Is it a plugin or has the program not installed correctly.  Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Nick

Well, this E-mail got to the list. I suppose you should ask your
question now.

The list is normal email - you reply to a previous post, quoting
whatever parts of that are relevant and adding whatever else you
wish to say at that point.

I'm aware of one site which presented the list as a forum, but I
think that posts from there tend to get delayed pending admin
approval because they come through as 'not subscribed'.

All I can see at the moment is  that you were following _a_
tutorial, but you haven't given any link to it.  There are thousands
of gimp tutorials out there, and many of them are out of date
(prepared for previous versions).  It might also help if you explain
exactly which version of gimp you are using, and on which operating
system (some of the details about how/where things appear might
differ).

Oh, and subscribing to the digest tends to break threads!  So, your
earlier post appeared and got a reply suggesting that you ask the
question, but now you have created a separate thread and used a
different name.  It's not as if gimp-users is even a medium-volume
list.

Re: gimp-user-list Digest, Vol 111, Issue 16

Users mailing list
Still somewhat confused.  But I'm getting there.  Thanks for responding.  I understand that I merely reply to this email as normal to continue the thread.  I think anyway.  I'll send the reply and see what happens.  Hopefully you'll see it.  It's all very confusing.

I'm on windows 10 using gimp 2.10.22 downloaded from you site a few days ago.  The tutorial I attempted to follow was also from you site under tututorials listed as simple floating logo.  As I said when I start the bump map I don't get a preview and I don't get visible in the bump map dialogue.  I get presents but visible doesn't appear there only the date and last used.  Is this tutorial based on a previous version or is the version I have incorrectly install and missing vital plugins or presets?  Perhaps you can answer me.

Thank you

Regards

Nick
