Cross Processing Images in the Gimp

This script adds a cross processing effect to an image following the procedure developed by Jesús David and documented on his blog:

More details on the script can be found at

Example of image before cross processing:

And after cross processing:

Code License: 
GIMP Version: 
Scripting Engine: 


Thanks I didn't know that. I am new to the scripts and plug-ins. I appreciate that. I have uninstalled and re-installed everything including python. I have saved in the plug in folder. I still can't seem to get it to work. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. :(

Open your Python console in GIMP and copy/paste the information it shows you.

My console shows this:

GIMP 2.6.11 Python Console
Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Apr 16 2010, 13:09:56)
[GCC 4.4.3]

What does yours show?

Mine is showing:
GIMP 2.6.11 Python Console
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84297, Aug 24 2010, 18:46:32) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]

Why not try the script version instead?

I don't know what else to tell you on Python. Your current Python is compatible with GIMP, so that isn't the issue. I've never had to set permissions for any python files in Windows, so I don't know what else to suggest.

Installed also pycairo, pygtk and pygobject??

Thought about virtualisation??

I also read that you have uninstalled python and then installed it again. You should have uninstalled Gimp also before reinstalling python.

# First install Python 2.6.6
# Restart system.
# Install pycairo-1.8.6-py26 (
# Install pygobject-2.20.0-py26
# Install pygtk-2.16-0+glade.win32-py26 (there are two versions of it: one with and one without glade, use the one with glade:
# Restart the system, on most systems not necessary.
# (Re)install GIMP 2.6.10/11
# Copy the .py file into: [drive]:\Documents and Settings\[user]\.gimp-2.6\plug-ins\ folder. The plugin is now only available for you.

This is a script and goes in Users/username/.gimp-2.6/scripts.

Blair Photography, I think you confuse with this script in python:
