Do you use GIMP, do you have legacy layers?
New layers effects (up to 37 of them!) were introduced in GIMP version 2.10, along with other features introduced before like non-destructive editing, different color profiles, etc… Making them a lot more competitive with Photoshop over time.
Anyway, I had a lot of layers in GIMP that were on the legacy layer, and I switched them to default (new). Since I am Mr. OCD Man, I had to go through my library of XCF (GIMP source) files, and switch all layers from legacy to the new one.
I have to give credit where credit is due! The fine person who helped out my problem is on the GIMP Chat forums. I won’t mention him by name here, because I don’t want his name to be indexed here. Keep in mind this community is non-fur, so please be respectful~
If you don’t have gimp-python installed, install it now, otherwise you will only have Script-Fu, which is this shitty Scheme scripting implementation that uses TinyScheme, and over 7 lines of code just to make a loop. Oh, sorry… a “named let” loop. XD
Let’s just say I have a huge preference for Python. Sorry, Lisp/Scheme nerds.
How you use a Python-Fu script: Go to Filters > Python-Fu > Console
Type this in….
def process(parent): for layerOrGroup in parent.layers: layerOrGroup.mode=LAYER_MODE_NORMAL if isinstance(layerOrGroup,gimp.GroupLayer): process(layerOrGroup) image=gimp.image_list() process(image)
….Press enter twice, and you’re off to the races!
Now I can solve my OCD problems without doing it manually! Yuck. }3
