Light and shadow centroids

This Python plug-in helps in the comparison of the left part of an image to the right part (equilibrium or not). It can be applied to any type of image and computes the centroid of the gray image pixels. The centroid is similar to the centre of mass concept, where mass is replace by another quantity; here it is the lightness and the greyness of the pixel.

Narly Sprite

NOTE If you want to live on the bleeding edge of this plugin, I'm currently using github ( for my version control.

Narly Sprite is meant to help you create and edit sprite sheets. Pretty simple.

Narly Sprite requires Gimp 2.8+ because it uses group layers to organize the frames in the sprite.

Features include:

Quick sketch RGB

I modified the script quick-sketch.scm of tuxcomputers, so it does not transform the image into grayscale, but leave the image in RGB mode.

The location of the script is "Script Fu / Artistic / Quick Sketch RGB"


I made a CalendarGenerator plug-in.
1.Download "" or "" file.
2. Unzip this file.
3. Copy "CalendarGenerator.exe" file and "CalendarGenerator" directory into Gimp's plug-ins directory.
("C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins")
4. Open Gimp.
5. Plug-in is in Filters->Rendering->CalendarGenerator menu.

This post is a copy of my website post; Please see original blog post for any updates:

In short: This script allows you to add an image watermark to a directory of pictures!

Lets start (Linux users please adjust where necessary!)

Create Layer Mask from...

GIMP 2.8 Python Plugin.
This plugin allows you to create layer mask from another layer mask.
Or create layer mask from grayscale copy of layer.

In addition, the main feature of this plugin - is an option that allows you to change the interaction between two masks (Replace, Subtract...):

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.
