You're using 64 bit GIMP and installing a 32 bit plug in. Several years ago you could find a 64 bit compile of the plug by Partha. I can't find that anymore. Try installing 32 bit GIMP.

Thanks, I'll have a look as soon as I have some time.

While working with a rather large image, 7360x4912 138MB, the rescale fails with a "Not Enough Memory" Error. I noticed this error appears after the task manager indicates the "gimp-lqr-plugin.exe" process as using 1,400,000 K of memory while my total memory usage remains below 4 GB.

While I was using the Liquid Rescale GIMP plugin I tried to remove an area of width from the image I but noticed nothing was removed from the area selected in the discard mask. I turned on the seam layer creation and confirmed that nothing was being taken out of the discard mask. Not only was nothing being removed from the discard mask, pieces of the preserve mask were removed Everything I was using can be found in a Google Drive folder that I can email you a link to as I am not allowed to post it here.

Install error

I just tried to install this on a Windows 10, 64 bit PC. The install finished, but when I
started Gimp I get the following error.

gimp-lqr-plugin.exe 0 entry point not found
the procedure entry point gimp_drawable_get_thumbnail could not be
located n the dynamic library c:\program files\gimp 2\gimp\2.0\plugins\gimp-lqr\plugin.exe

On my PC, Gimp was installed in
C:\Program Files\GIMP 2Which I think is not where you were expecting it to be. I do not recall changing the install
directory, but it is not the program files (x86) directory. I think this is caused because a
64 bit version of Gimp was installed.

The uninstall worked. Thanks for that.

Let me know if you have a version that installs. It seems to be a good tool.

Unfortunately I had to reinstall GIMP today and now I want the LQR plugin back but it doesn't work… When running the installation file I got this warning message:

GIMP installation was not found. You must install GIMP before running this installer. If you have GIMP installed, you may proceed, but you need to specify the GIMP installation folder manually.

I choose C:\Programs\GIMP 2\ (I couldn't choose subfolders anyway). When starting GIMP again it says the procedure entry "gimp_drawable_get_thumbnail“ wasn't found in DLL „libgimpui-2.0-0.dll“. GIMP starts (and works fine) but LQR doesn't show up in the layer menu.

Any ideas what went wrong? Thanks for your help! I'm using GIMP 2.8.18 and Win XP.

Getting the following error starting up GIMP:

plug_in_lqr_iter.exe - Application Error

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.

I am running Windows 10 (64 bit) and GIMP 2.8.14 (64 Bit) "Partha Build"

any ideas?
Thanks, Dennis

In recent years there have been numerous attempts to improveme the original algorithm by replacing the energy function. An early example is the use of "forward energy" instead of "backward energy", while a more recent one uses "forward gradient difference maps." (I originally had links here, but I'm not allowed to post those due to spam restrictions, I suppose)

This naturally leads to the question: what is the energy function used by this library? I'm pretty sure Photoshop still uses the oldest algorithm (!) for its content aware scaling, so major props if you're ahead of Adobe ;)

The main repository for the source code has been moved to GitHub:
This will make it easier to issue pull requests.
I'm also considering closing the forum here and moving to GitHub issues.

So I just moved the code to GitHub:

It'd be great if you (or someone else) could issue a pull request there.

Thanks! I finally had some time to look into this. Would this be fine?

I'm not sure what should go into the "updatecontact" tag.

I may also just move all the code to github and make it easier to create pull requests.

I've selected the only layer (Background) but the option is still greyed out. I've also tried creating a new layer and copying the contents of the background layer to it, but selecting that new layer still doesn't help.

Recently Richard Hughes added the addon component type to AppStream[1]
which is an XML standard that is used by distributors such as Fedora,
Suse and soon to be Arch and Debian to create metadata for various
software center applications.

By creating a metainfo.xml for gimp-lqr plugin, it is then shown next to
the main "gimp" application and allow the user to easily install it.

Richard written a blog post[2] about what upstream software needs to do
to integrate with the KDE and GNOME software centers, and Richard really
appreciate any feedback and help at this stage. The way AppStream works
is that it has to be build upstream by the distro, so we'd need to have
the files either upstream (or downstream in the distro packages) by
GNOME 3.14 which is quite a few months away.

If you want to contact with Richard, either email or grab on IRC — He's
hughsie on freenode and gimpnet. I'm ignatenkobrain on freenode and gimpnet.
Or just ask here.

I already sent patch to gedit-plugins[3]. Take a look it.

please add metainfo for gimp-lqr plugin by Igor Gnatenko (guest), 15 Jun 2014 14:54

I am also facing issues with installing liquid rescale plugin windows 7 64bit. My friend was telling me about some incompatibility issues with the 64 bit version? Is that true? What should I do to fix this issue? Thanks in advance for your help.

The problem is marked as solved because it refers to an issue which was caused by the Liquid Rescale plug-in specifically, and it was solved by the release of a new installer of the plug-in.
