info about layers

Found the plug-in, at, interesting.
To make it more useful, now it can generate some information beside viewing.
The additions are:
1) viewing and adding text explanations (date, etc...), about the layer, in a layer parasite
2) plug-in auto quit if no layer or initial image
3) permitting internationalization in 'user' folders (more text)
4) only one launch at a time

20 Century Fox effect

With this script you can generate a effect with your text layer that looks like the effect of the text on the trademark of the 20th Century Fox movie company.
It is based on the Bump project script that is already in the standard GIMP. When started, it will generate the effect searching the center of the image.
You can adapt
the number of layers, it will make the tail behind the chracters longer,
the horizontal and vertical shrink per layer, it will determine the speed of shrinking

    open/save with Windows (native) dialog

    Instead of the non-standard, non-compatible, often annoying GTK window,
    this plugin shows a Windows standard/native save/open dialog.

    GTK dialog has nice features, but it still annoys me very much. I'm sure that windows users, esp. beginners and power users will find this dialog useful.

    I really don't like to have 2 separate menus for SAVE and EXPORT.
    this script has 1 menu entry for both XCF and other types, as it used to be several years ago.

    Follow path updated: added preview

    The script for repeat a layer following a path is updated using the new features added to gimpfu3, a drawingarea for previewing, tabs for make clearer the interface and the extra option 'connect' to link the objects to actions, more info and download from
