This is an adaption of a script that I found (not sure where now but possible to re-find by searching on google). The name under the registration was Lucas Pettett so I guess it was his.
Originally it took some colours and text and produced a vista style button with a gradient dark part and light part horizontally divided. The corners were rounded and it had a border.
I have added the following things (so I can quickly create buttons for some of the applications I am working on):
This plug-in creates a Taijitu, or yin-yang, shape of any size between 300x300 and 3000x3000. The colors can be chosen at the start of the procedure, and the resulting picture has a transparent background. The attached picture shows the results of running the defaultscript.
I did this mainly while mucking around with selections in scripting. Enjoy!
This plug-in uses a shaped gradient and multiple layers to make a staggered border of different colored lightning. The image can be from 300x300 to 3000x3000, and the image can have up to 20 frames of lightning. The hues of the lightning gradually change as you go further toward the center of the image.
It's a difficult image to try to describe, so an image of what this script does is attached. This is an 800x600 image, using 5 frames. Using one frame will give a lightning border that can be used for any sized image.
The script works with GIMP Version 2.6. Enjoy!

This plug-in requires Python. Also, make sure that the .py file is executable! If you have already installed previous version of the plug-in, you must remove the old version.
Should now correctly handle RGB and La*b* palettes. Also, basic support is there for CMYK palettes - however, the CMYK conversion is not 100% accurate. One or more of your RGB values may be 1 less than what is specified in the Kuler interface.
dechroma is a simple but effective chroma noise reduction tool. Chroma noise appears usually in high ISO photographs. The method used in this script allows to reduce noise but does not affect details. It decomposes the picture in the LAB channels, blurs the chroma noise on the red and blue channels, and recomposes the picture. The default settings of the blur radius should be appropriate for general uses, but can be change. It's probably safer to apply primarily dechroma on selections to avoid some red or blue smears on transitions.
