GIMP Message Plug-in Crashed Error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I need to create a 48×60 banners and I need to export it an open office (.odt) file to a PDF with 300dpi image so I can import it to the GNU Image Manipulation Program or GIMP. But I am having an error when I tried to import the photo. The error is: GIMP Message Plug-in crashed: “file-pdf.exe” (C:Program Files (x86)GIMP-2.0libgimp2.0plug-insfile-pdf.exe) The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side. My client needs the banner to be in a 300 resolution format but since I am having issues with importing it as a pdf, I want to know if I can open the .odt file in GIMP and import my image there? I need advices please. Thank you.

The problem may either be with the plugin itself, or it could also be with the image that you are trying to export; it may be corrupt. I will suggest that you try the following workaround:

  • First create a backup of the images by copying them to a new location.
  • And then restart the computer.
  • Try exporting the images in PDF again and see if they will work successfully this time round.
  • In case that does not work, then you will need to uninstall the current plugin you have installed.
  • Go  to the internet and search for the latest GIMP plugin, download it and install it.

After you have done that, you should try exporting the images again and see the response.
