A repository of extensions for GIMP, the FREE and Open Source image manipulation program.


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!

Auto convert and resize images

It automatically converts and it resize entire collections of images. The script reads from text file the complete path of the images to convert, one complete path for every line of text.

Lightning Frame

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!

Bump Text - Watermark

Generates watermark by bump mapping the selected layer with the specified input text. Uses the bump mapping technique found here: http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/The_Basics/

Import Kuler (ASE) palettes

Import Kuler palettes into GIMP 2.6.

Palettes Dock -> Menu -> Palettes Menu -> Import Kuler palette...

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.

Sample a Gradient Along a Path

A script to create a new gradient by sampling along a path drawn in an image.

Example and usage are here: http://www.silent9.com/blog/archives/155-GIMP-Script-Sample-a-Gradient-a...

This was tested under 2.6 but should work under 2.4

Please note the script registers under the Gradient Menu (from the gradient dialog). It will error out if called on an image that has no paths defined.

Depthmap Plugin

This plugin generates a depthmap out of two stereoscopic images.
Install it with:
gimptool-2.0 --install elsamuko-depthmap.c
Then open the two images as layers in GIMP and start the plugin under Filters -> Map -> Depthmap.

Gas Giant

This script is nother in a series of planet makers. This one makes a banded gas giant. There can be anywhere from one to 20 bands in the planet. Each band is an equal height, and has Plasma noise rendered in it. Each layer is then motion blurred. The result is then mapped onto a sphere, and gaussian blurred to make the edges nice and fuzzy.
