Hello there I was searching for beginner friendly GIMP python tutorials on the net, but the only guide I found was the official documentation:
Any other reference would fall like mana.
Thanks in advance.
HIGHLY recommended: 13 hours to take a free online introductory Python course.
Afterwards, open up some of the simpler, typically "shorter" (ls -l ~/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins/*.py | sort -n -k 5 | head) scripts and hunt for parts in them that strike you as something you'll need to do in your script too. Then, after you learn about the registration, and naming process (which you can mostly emulate without understanding), you can begin bashing together yours from the many.
(I'm a newb at this too--but after a week or 10 days of working at it, my first script, using elements of two existing others, actually writes to a file, with data from real paths and pixels.)
