gimpedit — Edit menu functions (cut, copy, paste, clear, etc.)

Description

Edit menu functions (cut, copy, paste, clear, etc.)

Functions

gimp_edit_cut ()

gboolean
gimp_edit_cut (gint32 drawable_ID);

Cut from the specified drawable.

If there is a selection in the image, then the area specified by the selection is cut from the specified drawable and placed in an internal GIMP edit buffer. It can subsequently be retrieved using the gimp_edit_paste() command. If there is no selection, then the specified drawable will be removed and its contents stored in the internal GIMP edit buffer. This procedure will fail if the selected area lies completely outside the bounds of the current drawable and there is nothing to copy from.

Parameters

drawable_ID

The drawable to cut from.

 

Returns

TRUE if the cut was successful, FALSE if there was nothing to copy from.


gimp_edit_copy ()

gboolean
gimp_edit_copy (gint32 drawable_ID);

Copy from the specified drawable.

If there is a selection in the image, then the area specified by the selection is copied from the specified drawable and placed in an internal GIMP edit buffer. It can subsequently be retrieved using the gimp_edit_paste() command. If there is no selection, then the specified drawable's contents will be stored in the internal GIMP edit buffer. This procedure will fail if the selected area lies completely outside the bounds of the current drawable and there is nothing to copy from.

Parameters

drawable_ID

The drawable to copy from.

 

Returns

TRUE if the cut was successful, FALSE if there was nothing to copy from.


gimp_edit_copy_visible ()

gboolean
gimp_edit_copy_visible (gint32 image_ID);

Copy from the projection.

If there is a selection in the image, then the area specified by the selection is copied from the projection and placed in an internal GIMP edit buffer. It can subsequently be retrieved using the gimp_edit_paste() command. If there is no selection, then the projection's contents will be stored in the internal GIMP edit buffer.

Parameters

image_ID

The image to copy from.

 

Returns

TRUE if the copy was successful.

Since: 2.2


gimp_edit_paste ()

gint32
gimp_edit_paste (gint32 drawable_ID,
                 gboolean paste_into);

Paste buffer to the specified drawable.

This procedure pastes a copy of the internal GIMP edit buffer to the specified drawable. The GIMP edit buffer will be empty unless a call was previously made to either gimp_edit_cut() or gimp_edit_copy(). The \"paste_into\" option specifies whether to clear the current image selection, or to paste the buffer \"behind\" the selection. This allows the selection to act as a mask for the pasted buffer. Anywhere that the selection mask is non-zero, the pasted buffer will show through. The pasted buffer will be a new layer in the image which is designated as the image floating selection. If the image has a floating selection at the time of pasting, the old floating selection will be anchored to its drawable before the new floating selection is added. This procedure returns the new floating layer. The resulting floating selection will already be attached to the specified drawable, and a subsequent call to floating_sel_attach is not needed.

Parameters

drawable_ID

The drawable to paste to.

 

paste_into

Clear selection, or paste behind it?

 

Returns

The new floating selection.


gimp_edit_paste_as_new ()

gint32
gimp_edit_paste_as_new (void);

gimp_edit_paste_as_new is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use gimp_edit_paste_as_new_image() instead.

Paste buffer to a new image.

This procedure pastes a copy of the internal GIMP edit buffer to a new image. The GIMP edit buffer will be empty unless a call was previously made to either gimp_edit_cut() or gimp_edit_copy(). This procedure returns the new image or -1 if the edit buffer was empty.

Returns

The new image.

Since: 2.4


gimp_edit_paste_as_new_image ()

gint32
gimp_edit_paste_as_new_image (void);

Paste buffer to a new image.

This procedure pastes a copy of the internal GIMP edit buffer to a new image. The GIMP edit buffer will be empty unless a call was previously made to either gimp_edit_cut() or gimp_edit_copy(). This procedure returns the new image or -1 if the edit buffer was empty.

Returns

The new image.

Since: 2.10


gimp_edit_named_cut ()

gimp_edit_fill is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use gimp_drawable_edit_fill() instead.

Fill selected area of drawable.

This procedure fills the specified drawable with the fill mode. If the fill mode is foreground, the current foreground color is used. If the fill mode is background, the current background color is used. Other fill modes should not be used. This procedure only affects regions within a selection if there is a selection active. If you want to fill the whole drawable, regardless of the selection, use gimp_drawable_fill().

Parameters

drawable_ID

The drawable to fill to.

 

fill_type

The type of fill.

 

Returns

TRUE on success.


gimp_edit_bucket_fill ()

gboolean
gimp_edit_bucket_fill (gint32 drawable_ID,
                       GimpBucketFillMode fill_mode,
                       GimpLayerMode paint_mode,
                       gdouble opacity,
                       gdouble threshold,
                       gboolean sample_merged,
                       gdouble x,
                       gdouble y);

gimp_edit_bucket_fill is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use gimp_drawable_edit_bucket_fill() instead.

Fill the area specified either by the current selection if there is one, or by a seed fill starting at the specified coordinates.

This tool requires information on the paint application mode, and the fill mode, which can either be in the foreground color, or in the currently active pattern. If there is no selection, a seed fill is executed at the specified coordinates and extends outward in keeping with the threshold parameter. If there is a selection in the target image, the threshold, sample merged, x, and y arguments are unused. If the sample_merged parameter is TRUE, the data of the composite image will be used instead of that for the specified drawable. This is equivalent to sampling for colors after merging all visible layers. In the case of merged sampling, the x and y coordinates are relative to the image's origin; otherwise, they are relative to the drawable's origin.

Parameters

drawable_ID

The affected drawable.

 

fill_mode

The type of fill.

 

paint_mode

The paint application mode.

 

opacity

The opacity of the final bucket fill.

 

threshold

The threshold determines how extensive the seed fill will be. It's value is specified in terms of intensity levels. This parameter is only valid when there is no selection in the specified image.

 

sample_merged

Use the composite image, not the drawable.

 

x

The x coordinate of this bucket fill's application. This parameter is only valid when there is no selection in the specified image.

 

y

The y coordinate of this bucket fill's application. This parameter is only valid when there is no selection in the specified image.

 

Returns

TRUE on success.


gimp_edit_blend ()

gboolean
gimp_edit_blend (gint32 drawable_ID,
                 GimpBlendMode blend_mode,
                 GimpLayerMode paint_mode,
                 GimpGradientType gradient_type,
                 gdouble opacity,
                 gdouble offset,
                 GimpRepeatMode repeat,
                 gboolean reverse,
                 gboolean supersample,
                 gint max_depth,
                 gdouble threshold,
                 gboolean dither,
                 gdouble x1,
                 gdouble y1,
                 gdouble x2,
                 gdouble y2);

gimp_edit_blend is deprecated and should not be used in newly-written code.

Use gimp_drawable_edit_gradient_fill() instead.

Blend between the starting and ending coordinates with the specified blend mode and gradient type.

This tool requires information on the paint application mode, the blend mode, and the gradient type. It creates the specified variety of blend using the starting and ending coordinates as defined for each gradient type. For shapeburst gradient types, the context's distance metric is also relevant and can be updated with gimp_context_set_distance_metric().
