AnimStack is a collection of tools to simplify creating animations in GIMP. It makes heavy use of Layer Groups, introduced in GIMP 2.8.
A simple example of a problem this script might solve: you have an animation, but you want to put some text on top of it. Normally you would have to add text to every frame manually, but with AnimStack this task is completely automated. AnimStack is perfect for post-processing your GIF animations and adding various simple effects to them.
Does exactly what you expect it to do. Every top-level layer group is merged (careful: only visible layers in each layer group are merged). The layer tree becomes completely flat. Why is this useful? Well, I made it because it is impossible to convert an image to Indexed mode or export it as animated GIF if it contains any layer groups. And layer groups are extremely useful for animated GIFs. It's a conundrum! And this script helps automate the process somewhat.
2013-03-01 - Minor revision upgrade:
updated the nuvola-tools-install-commands.sh to work with the more recent Debian Wheezy (debian testing)
You will be able to use nuvola tools on a more recent system and it's likely to work in Ubuntu too!
NUVOLA TOOLs offer advanced grayscale cleaning and processing functions for your scans,
automates removal of shadows, dust and toner particles typical of less than perfect prints ,
screentones removal through automated shape and topology recognition and much more!
GIMP 2.8 Python Plugin.
Copy and move the selected area to a new layer in the same position.
This function is similar to the functions with the same names in Photoshop, and more powerful. Unlike them, it can copy/cut content, not just from one layer, but also from the layer groups.
In Photoshop, this is not possible :)
This small script shows some information related to the current selected layer. This info includes:
- The layer's name
- The layer dimensions (in pixels)
- The layer offset respect the origin of the whole image (in pixels)
You can go to View->Layer info menu option to show the layer information window. The window stays on top, so the user can switch between the different layers of the image to inspect their values easily.
GIMP 2.8 Python Plug-in.
This plug-in scales the contents of the layer (or layer group) to image size.
1. Extract "scale-layer-to-image-size.py" from .zip archive to the ".../.gimp-2.x/plug-ins/" directory.
2. Make sure that the extracted file is executable.
3. If you are already running GIMP, close and reopen it.
