Note: I accidentally posted this as a plug-in first. I've now correctly posted it as a script.
This script allows the user to select an item in the image and to create a true polar array of the selected object (think kaleidoscope as opposed to Ferris wheel seats). It is useful for creating objects that possess radial symmetry.
The user can control:
-center point of rotation
-distance from the center point to the objects in the array
-starting angle for the rotation
-angle between each copied object
-number of objects in the final array.
This script removes the timestamp imprinted on photos by digital cameras.
A friend had more than 400 photos with such a timestamp so I tried to get rid of it in a fast way. The script is a little quick'n'dirty but in most cases it's doing the job just fine. Better than I thought in the first place...
select the area with the timestamp (manually but optional)
select the color of the timestamp in your selection
add alpha channel to layer (transparent background)
Create shadowed thumbnail is a GIMP scrit which allow you to create a thumbnail preview of an image with a shadow effect.

# GIMP plugin to count the number of tiles of the FG color
This plugin breaks the layer into tiles and counts the number of tiles containing a percentage of the FG color, and optionally draws a grid in the bg color. The plug-in also reports the total percentage of the FG color in the layer. For best results, use a flattened copy of your layered image.
