Rectangular select with circular and elliptical corners

The Rectangular Select Tool with Rounded corners option checked is very useful, but it could be so much more. The underlying GIMP function, gimp-image-select-round-rectangle written by Martin Nordholts provides much more functionality than what is exposed in the Rectangular Select Tool.

This script attempts to unleash gimp-image-select-round-rectangle's potential by raising the radius limit to 262144 pixels from 100 pixels and exposes the ability to specify different x and y radii.

Layer to selection (select layer bounds)

Adds a new menu item

Select→Layer to selection

which creates a selection that exactly matches the boundaries of the current layer.

Edge Glow

A simple script to make the edges of a selection or layer glow with the selected colour. The script will act on the active selection first, and if it cannot find that, the alpha channel of the current layer. All changes are made to a separate layer so you can duplicate, mask and move them around to your heart's content.
