Found the plug-in layer-info.py, at http://registry.gimp.org/node/26317, interesting.
To make it more useful, now it can generate some information beside viewing.
The additions are:
1) viewing and adding text explanations (date, etc...), about the layer, in a layer parasite
2) plug-in auto quit if no layer or initial image
3) permitting internationalization in 'user' folders (more text)
4) only one launch at a time
5) save the info for all layers and parasites in a text file.
With this script you can generate a effect with your text layer that looks like the effect of the text on the trademark of the 20th Century Fox movie company.
It is based on the Bump project script that is already in the standard GIMP. When started, it will generate the effect searching the center of the image.
You can adapt
the number of layers, it will make the tail behind the chracters longer,
the horizontal and vertical shrink per layer, it will determine the speed of shrinking
The plugin can be downloaded here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpoutils/ as the zip file. Must be compiled and installed. The jpeg files saved inside mpo file are compressed with 90% quality. This should be sufficient for 3D images. If not, let me know.
tileimages.scm -- Put n*m same sized images onto one image in n columns & m rows with optional padding, grid lines, bounding box, rounded corners and feathered edge.
If there aren't n*m images passed, the last image is repeated until n*m positions are filled.
This is useful for just passing one image, which will be tiled for all n*m positions.
If there are more images passed, only the first n*m are used.
I have maintained the registry for over 15 years now, and for the last couple of years we have had an excellent team of co-maintainers who took on a lot of the work. However, there are some much needed improvements which are hard to carry out based on the current platform, and the work due to abuse is growing. We cannot continue this on our own, unfortunately.
