New Guides Rule of Thirds

This is a very simple script that adds the rule of thirds guides to the current image.

I used to add guide by guide by percent, then crop, remove the guides and add them again one by one. After many times I did it like that, I decided to create a script to do it faster, for which I had to self train on how to do it using script-fu, to avoid poor portability.

I created the script with my Fedora 8 Linux distribution for GIMP 2.4, but it also works for 2.6.

This script works for any platform that GIMP works with.

Installation procedure:

Grid of guides

Add a grid of guides from number of horizontal and vertical parts in GIMP.
Tested with GIMP 2.6

Add Rule Of Thirds guides

Add simple "Rule of Thirds" guides in GIMP.

This plug-in is so simple, it might also be useful as a python-fu template.

Add multiple guides

This plugin adds multiple guidelines to the actual image.
New guides can be simply added by pressing the "Add"-button. The last guide can be deleted by pressing the "Remove"-Button.
This tool is very useful if you make weblayouts and don't want to select every guide from the ruler.
Remember to chmod+x the file. Put it in "plug-ins"-folder.
