Hello all. :) My question should have a simple answer.
How do you make a straight line using GIMP?
I feel silly asking because it's probably so simple that it's staring me in the face. But then again, I come from the world of Paint Shop Pro, where everything really DOES stare at you straight in the face. Or at least it seemed like it did. *cough* But anyway, I'm specifically trying to make a diagonal line. Is there a tool in GIMP that I'm missing that will make a straight line?
EDIT: Okay, so I got it! For GIMP, pick the "Brush" tool. Okay, good. Then on the image you have to make a dot
/square/a mark of some sort, depending upon the brush setting. Then hold the shift key, and the brush tool should change it's appearance. The dot you just drew will have an "X" over it, and then where ever your cursor is will have a different X over it, and there will be a line connecting them. The second dot is the end of your 'line segment', so once you have the line where you want it to be, click (still holding SHIFT) and it should have made a line.
PHEW! See, what I was trying to do before was to drag the brush tool while holding SHIFT for it to make a line that way. It doesn't work though. :P
Coincidentally, that little "EDIT" I posted works for PSP last time I checked.
Thanks for your help guys... and I'm looking at the comments right now and once again- it never fails- someone's beat me to the solution and also posted it simpler. xP AKA, knittinggoddess. Yay! *claps* We win!
This is potentially a stupid question, but I want to get it fixed so I can make icons on my new computer.
On the computer I use now, my icons are 100x100, nice and sharp, and you can look at them without going "Agh! How small!"
On the laptop I just got yesterday (I've caught up to technology as it was a few years ago, go me), the icons look to be what, on the other computer, is 80x80 or smaller, and it's kind of hurting my eyes. Since I figure other people will be able to see the icons as larger, I want to pay a certain amount of attention to detail.
I changed the resolution, but that just makes things look kind of blurry.
I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9. The new laptop is a Dell Inspiron 710m, in case that matters.
And if it would be better to ask this question elsewhere, please let me know.
Is there a website or somewhere that I can go to animate my icons?
