Sorry for the poor wording.
I'll go with an example : I took a fairly small image and added a hex grid. The file size went from ~156k to over 1,2g.
I thought it might be because the "paths" were left behind or something, but the script does appear to delete them after tracing the lines.
That could be some residual history with all the deletes and stuff. Are they still that size after you close them?
Actually, I just ran a quick test and the script DOES add quite a bit of memory ( test went from 7.4mb to 437mb for a 676 × 436 image at 150 ppi) to the working file. Clearing the history got the size back down to 7.6mb. I would suggest that placing the grid be done as a first thing after opening the document or after a save in order to make sure that you do not clear something that you might want to backtrack on. I am not sure if you can delete specific actions from the history.....
Aah! Memory usage, not filesize. Thanks Korash, now I understand.
That can be fixed, as I've done it for other scripts I've written, I just never considered this one to be that memory intense.
Amazing feature, fits perfectly. Thank you!
Rob - Hex grid is Great Thank You!!!
Can the script be modified (or is there already one) to only do 2 edges? so you would basically have
but the edges would be clean and rounded?
Hello there! I know it's been a long time since anyone posted about this script, but I just stumbled across this today. I'm using Gimp 2.8, and the script works fine. However, in the options, it is not possible to go thinner than 1 with the line width. Like, .5 or something. In my experience, the lines are a bit too thick, even at 1. I adjusted the offset to .5 each, and it was a little better, but I am looking for very thin lines, much like you see on a printed hex map.
Am I missing something? Any thoughts?
