Hello guys, I have made tickets for our party, but I'm having troubles with one thing. I need to print 360 of those tickets and each should have its number starting from 1 to 360. How can I efficiently number those tickets? Epick

Being an image-editing program, GIMP doesn't have spreadsheet functions.

Include page numbers when you print?

The functionality you need could be scripted, e.g. in script-fo (Scheme) or Python; i know not whether someone has done this already.

Or you could do it like this: (1) make a text file with the numbers in it. E.g. perl -le 'foreach my $i (1 .. 500 ) { print sprintf("%00d", $i); }' > tmp
if you are on Linux

(2) in your image, make a text layer that goes from the top of the first number box to te bottom. Set the font to (say) Stardos Stencil Bold :) size 90, line height 280, and check Use editor; paste the first six lines of the text file.

(3) duplicate the text layer, move it right for the 2nd column, paste the next 6 lines.

(4) export to page1.png

(5) repeat, editing the layers. This isn't automatic, but doing a dozen at a time in two layers isn't too bad.

(6) now you can open all the output files and export to pdf with layers as pages.

This is not a task suitable for an image editing program.

I would do it another way.

Use a word processing program that has an auto-numbering function to develop the framework for the area of the ticket, with the number to appear (overlay) on the image you have made in an image editing program.

The easiest way to accomplish that would be to print the tickets in one run through the printer and then print ON THEM them AGAIN from word processing program to add the number on top of the image.

However, even this would be more work than simply hand-writing (oh no, not that!!!!) 360 numbers. You could write the numbers faster than it took you to even think about these emails.

I think you could also quickly make up a shell script to use ImageMagick to put numbers on the tickets.

Cheers!

You can use the ImageMagick toolbox to overlay any text over an image in a shell script. Then you just have to write a script hat loops over 360 numbers. See https://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/annotating/

Or make 36 2x10 grids in Excel and populate them with numbers in sequence. Then overlay each grid on the top layer of a new page with your master ticket design underneath.
No scripting required.

Gimp can do a lot - even number tickets.

1.open a single ticket as a layer 2.create layer number (Text add-number-layers.py) 3.combine layers "Join tiles"(ofn-layer-tiles.py) https://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-tools/files/scripts/ If there are problems - start a thread on: https://gimpchat.com/
