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

Rainbow Plasma

Creates an image of rainbow coloured circles to give a plasma-like pattern. Also comes with an animation script that animates the pattern. Frames are saved as layers. Choose min and max speed and circles are randomly increases/decreased in radius according to the set speeds.
TODO - Save frames as XCF files compatible with GAP.

Reports layer information

Reports imagename, layername, size and offset to stdout.
Intended to query information of anim frame images when
used with GIMP-GAP. (Run this filter via menu Video->Frames Modify to query layer information of frames)



This is a script that is based on the lightning tutorial (http://gug.sunsite.dk/tutorials/tomcat9/). It was tested on GIMP 2.4 (so, using the new scheme engine).
It comes with two versions; one that creates an image of lightning and another that creates an animation (using layers as frames) of lightning with parameters to modify the turbulence so the lightning bolt appears to dissipate over time.

Liquid Rescale

This plugin aims at resizing pictures non uniformly while preserving their features, i.e. avoiding distortion of the important parts.

plugin example

For example, you may turn a normal picture to panoramic without stretching the content.

The plugin supports manual feature selection, and can also be used to remove portions of the picture in a consistent way.

More information:


GREYCstoration was a noise reduction plug-in for GIMP, based on the technique of anisotropic diffusion partial differential equations.

GREYCstoration has been discontinued, and is now replaced by the G'MIC project, which contains all the former GREYCstoration features, but also much much much more !

GIMP Labels

GIMP Labels has a (fairly small) list of common label templates (from Avery and others) to help in using GIMP to print address labels, business cards, CD labels etc.

labels.scm gives you:

Xtns/Misc/Labels/Rect label...
Create a new image with the right aspect ratio for one label.

Filters/Combine/Make label page...
Once one label is created, duplicate it as many times as desired to make a full sheet (only US-letter currently supported) of labels.

Xtns/Misc/Labels/CD label...
Create a new image sized for a full or mini CD label.

Filters/Render/CD mask...


Pandora simplifies the process of stitching together a sequence of panorama images.

Load all the panorama pieces (in order) as layers inside an image (suggestion: make a new image then "Open as Layers" and select all the files). Then run Filters->Combine->Make Panorama.

You still have to do the detailed matching by hand, but Pandora calculates the needed image size, moves all the layers to approximately the right position and creates appropriate layer masks for fading each image into the next.

TESEO2: Turn the Eldest Seismograms in the Electronic Original Ones

TESEO2: Turn the Eldest Seismograms in the Electronic Original Ones Teseo2 has been developed for quick and accurate digitisation of historical seismograms from raster files, introducing a vectorisation step based on piecewise cubic Bezier curves. The vectoriser can handle greyscale images stored in a suitable file format and it offers three concurrent vectorisation methods: manual, automatic by colour selection, and automatic by neural networks. Teseo2 is developed in respect to the "Open-Source" philosophy and it is freely distributed under GPL license.

Abr brush loader

Plugin to load Photoshop ABR brushes as image in GIMP. Multiple brushes included in a file are loaded as layers. Should handle v1, v2, v6.1 and v6.2 sample brushes (though I don't known which PS release create each). Requires Gimp 2.4.

Bugzilla #377016 for v6 brush support
