Re: [Gimp-user] bewildered newbie query

i have not encountered anything native to windows 10 that opens .jp2;
that's why i'm trying so many third-party softwares - the latest being  .. and this latest too does not seem like it's
friendly to a tablet with touchpad keyboard or else i don't understand how
to work it: it's requiring an immense time to create thumbnails for the 517
.jp2 pages; and i see no way to use its slideshow feature without first
creating these thumbnails; and i see no way to view this book without using
the slideshow feature.

i tried using the gimp 2.8 .scm that Bob mentioned; the script's window
does indeed appear but i can't understand how to operate that either!

What's the difference between a viewer and a converter?

Thank You Bob.

But I need to confess that I'm a newbie and I don't know how to use an
.scm file;am I supposed to place it into a specified gimp folder? And do
you know whether it will work for .jp2 - I see that it accommodates .jpg
but I don't know whether that means that it will accommodate “jpeg2000”


"In Windows Vista [ajnd presumably later version of Windows], the path
to the GIMP scripts folder is C:\Users\Your User Name\.gimp-2.6\scripts."

It might even be ".gimp-2.8" if you have a later version of GIMP.

Put the .scm file there then start GIMP.

But as others have suggested it's probably better to use a simpler image
viewer. I don't use Windows much now, but I imagine the Microsoft image
viewer included with Windows should have a means of simply going to the
next image. Probably arrows left/right somewhere on a toolbar.

    There is a script for GIMP someone has written that allows somewhat
    easier sequential processing of images:
    (post #13,
    which has the attachment).
