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


Iconify2 plug-in converts a single layer of a single image into a multi-layered image ready to be saved as a Windows icon.
;The new image will contain all standard sizes (16x16, 32x32, 48x48) at all standard bit depths (16 colors, 256 colors, 32-bit RGBA), with transparency support.
*Note: Not fully tested though, so be sure to try it on an "expendable" copy of an image first.
**Tested on - Gimp 2.4.6
- Gimp Portable 2.4.6


this script adds an "anitools" submenu to the "script-fu" menu with entries useful for creating (optimized) animated GIFs:
create scanlines: paint every other horizontal line in each layer with the current foreground layer. this can decrease the size of the resulting GIF and some people like the look :-)
set image framerate: set the frame rate for all layers in the current image.
set layer framerate: set the frame rate for just the current layer.

GIMP Indexed palette selection tools

I wrote this script using GIMP bug #88361 as inspiration.
This script provides three functions that expand GIMP's ability to deal with indexed colors. I designed them with pixel artists in mind, who frequently store their target palette as a set of swatches in one region of the image they're working on.

(Image) > Colors > Map > Colormap to palette
Creates a GIMP palette based on an indexed image's colormap, which can then be used just like any normal GIMP palette.

GIMP YCC Inversion

Performs a value-inversion on the current layer, based on its representation in the YCC colorspace. The result is similar to the existing "Value Invert" command (but without that command's color-distortion introduced from low RGB values) and can be quite striking on certain source images.
Accessible via (Image) > Colors > Components > Luma invert.

Workflow process

is there a standard workkflow process that I should follow when editing photos. I am only new to GIMP and as a starting point this would be extemely helpful.


This script allows to design triangles around a circumference in parametric modality.

arclayer takes a layer (for instance, a text layer) and bends it in a circular arc of a specified radius. Home page at http://shallowsky.com/software/arclayer/

First Photo Border Script

Download script.

This script simulates the cut-off of the first picture of a film roll of cheap cameras like Lomo. Role model was this picture from flickr. Copy it into the scripts folder from GIMP, you will find it then under Filters -> Generic -> Photo Border.

Focus Blur Binaries for Microsoft Windows

Windows binariers for the focus blur plug-in by Kyoichiro Suda.

Unfortunately without FFTW3 so far (because I do not have it on my system yet), and thus slow.


The attachment is meant to be extracted into the GIMP program directory, if you want to place it elsewhere, just drop the executable to the right place. Translations for Italian, Japanese and Russian are included.


Creates a Lightsaber effect.
To successfully create the effect, you need a black layer with a white line (roughly 2-10 pixels wide)
The layer must be selected.
