60's Text Effect Script (Rev. 2.2)

This script will create psychedelic 1960's text. I created this script from my tutorial of the same name. I didn't merge the layers in the script, as I did in the tutorial, because you can change the blend modes of the different layers for different appearance.

Rev. 2.0 - added compatability for Gimp 2.4.x

Rev. 2.1 and 2.2 - Added gradient controls.

Gradient-to-gradient Gradient

Version 1.0.2

This script-fu creates a completely new image having an RGB and/or HSV gradient vertically between any two GIMP gradient patterns.

Note that this script-fu has a repeating loop, so the wider you make this image, the longer the script will take to run.

To slice and merge images

Slices and joins scriptfu is useful when you want to split one image 'file' into smaller 'files', and to recombine it successively. One single image 'file' can be split into unlimited number of files. Image-slice script save on the file imagename.rcm all the data for the reconstruction.

Cross-stitchify v2.1

Someone on an email list I belong to asked about ways of making a counted cross-stitch pattern from a photo. There are commercial packages that do this, but it seemed like something GIMP could do, and I wanted some Python practice.

Attached is a zip file containing the following files:

UnsharpMask2.0.12 (Windows binary -source code)

This plugin is not more maintained but still works very well On Gimp 2.6 and even 2.7
Was developed by Peter Heckert , Windows binary were provided by Michael Schumacher. but the original side is offline from years and all old links dead

i am mirroring both source code and binaries to avoid it can get lost and i repost here also in the hope that may found more users and a maintainer (as i said still works very well ,from gimp 2.0 till 2.7 a maintainer may help for the future )

repeated rotation

This script generates rotated copies of the current layer.
It can be used to draw star-like images (see jpg below)
Save the script in your scripts folder, you will find it under Layer -> Transform -> repeat rotation.
