New version of selection bevel released. Bugs of the last version have been fixed, and additionally a new feature added: now you can adjust the width and height of the bevel independently, creating neat effects where the bevel is thinner on some edges, or uneven.

v2.3 - Another update, at a short interval. This update has improved shape curves and gloss algorithms. The gloss setting no longer makes the "unbeveled" parts of the bevel darker, and the shape curves should look more natural now. Note that the shape curve setting now has a smaller scale, from -64 to 64, so you'll want to find new values that work for you.

I've also removed deprecated functions for futureproofing. The sad news is, that this means the future versions of this plugin no longer works for 2.6, but I'm re-enabling the download of an older version for those who still are forced to use that ancient version of GIMP... ;)

So: v1.53 is only for legacy versions - it should work in 2.6 and possibly older versions of GIMP.
edit: I've enabled the download of v2.2 again - if v1.53 doesn't work for some reason, try v2.2 - it might work in 2.6, or it might not...

If you're on an up-to-date version (2.8 or higher), use v2.3.

What version of GIMP are you using, and what operating system? Do other python scripts work ok for you?

Try renaming the script file so it has a ".py" extension instead of ".py.txt", I think that causes some problems sometimes.

I am using gimp version 2.6.11 on linux mint. I saved it as a .py extension and made it executable. It shows up in gimp and goes through the motions, but the added layer contains nothing.

Do you have a selection when you apply the plugin? If you have no selection at all (ie. the whole image is unselected) then the resulting layer appears empty. Try selecting an area, or the whole layer, and then applying the plugin.

Edit - - there seems to be a bug that results in empty layers if you set the bevel width wider than what fits in the selection. I'll try to have it fixed asap.

Try leaving a selection on the object you are beveling.
