Insane Bump

This is a normal map generator from a single image, originally created by omaremad. Load a single layer picture, then choose filters/map/insanebump..., tweak the details, then hit OK. The normal/height/ambiend/specular maps for the picture will be created within the folder where the original picture resides.

The script produces different files within the original image's directory:
the _n is the normal map,
the _s is the specular,
the _d is the diffusion (just the color)
the _a is the ambiend occlusion
the _h is the displacement (or height map)

Make Seamless Advanced

An advanced version of "Make Seamless".

When searching for a good tool for making seamless textures I found "Seamless texture maker" by RPG, but it turned out to be very simplistic and a bit glitchy, so I wrote my own version. It produces two additional layers - the horizontal and the vertical overlap.

Wacom Tablet Mode Setting (Linux)

This is a python-fu script to cycle through four modes on a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet, updating the middle touch ring to perform different functions in each mode (eg zoom, change brush size, prev/next layer, scoll). The script can set the correct LED on the tablet, but only if write permissions are given to the leds in the /proc file system (see the source code for hints).
Requires xsetwacom and libnotify-tools. Only intended for Linux.

PDF Cover Thumbnail

A GIMP Python plugin to create PNG thumbnails out of PDF files' first page, for book covers.
It crawls recursively a folder path looking for PDF files. Out of each PDF file, it will create a PNG thumbnail of the first page in the PDF.

This plug-in must be put in The GIMP's script directory (e.g., $HOME/.gimp-1.2/plugins) and made executable (e.g., chmod +x).
For interactive invocation, run The GIMP and go to Tools -> PDF Cover Thumbnail...
New width and height are in pixels.

CEGUI Animation Exporter

CEGUI Uses imagesets and animation XML to perform animations with images (No GIFS for U)

This plugin creates a film strip style image from layers of a single image, along with the necessary xml files needed by CEGUI to use the strip in an animation.


This script consists of 2 separate plug-ins, free-form-semi-auto-bokeh and free-
Both allow you to simulate the bokeh-effect (the out of focus effect which causes
point-like light-sources to appear as disks).
The "free-form" means the user must determine the size and the shape of the bokeh.
This is done by creating a selection before running either plug-in.
This selection can be placed anywhere on the image.
This means you can simulate a partially closed aperture with for instance a selection
