Freaky Details Python Script

I made a small python script, similar to a details-enhancement-procedure described here:
Vivid light blend mode is implemented using the color dodge and color burn technique. Selective Gaussian Blur is used instead "Surface Blur" so it works without G'MIC dependencies. Take care of the Gaussian Radius since high values / big images make Gimps Selective Gaussian Blur a VERY time consuming operation.


input: white object on black background
output: beveled object reflecting specified probe image

I only compiled a windows binary (see attachment).

B&W Channel Mixer Settings (Film Emulation)

As part of a larger series on B&W grayscale conversion in GIMP, I wrote a second script that automatically generates layers using each of the commonly defined film emulation channel mixer values...

Anaglyph to Stereo Pair (cross-eye)

There were a few anaglyph 3D images that I wanted to view as cross-eyed stereo pairs (I don't have glasses handy). I started doing the manipulations by hand to convert them from anaglyphs, then got tired of doing it manually.

So, I wrote a quick script-fu to do it for me. This will take a 3D Anaglyph image (red/cyan), and create a stereo pair (monochrome) for you...

Just load up an image, and run:

Filters > Generic > Anaglyph to Stereo...

Color Decompose (For B&W Conversions)

As part of writing the next part of my tutorials on B&W conversion, I needed to quickly decompose an RGB image into different grayscale channels based on useful channels from all the color modes (RGB, CMY(K), LAB, HSV, HSL, YCbCr).

It was tedious doing it by hand, so I wrote up this small script to automatically decompose an RGB image layer (active) into each of the color decomposition modes, and to keep the most useful to me for B&W conversions.


A python plugin for GIMP that will create a startrail image from a number of light and dark frames.

This should work fine with versions 2.6, 2.8 and of Gimp.

Just updated to version 1.6 including live display preview and elapsed time notification.

Drag mouse to resize brush (updated for linux)

Works like the blender brush size controls, making it easy to change your brush size with a mouse or graphics tablet by letting you drag the mouse left to right to interactively change the brush size.

Now you don't have to tap hotkeys repeatedly or interrupt your painting flow by moving the mouse to the slider

Gimp 2.8
Windows (tested on Windows 7 x64)
Linux (tested on Ubuntu 12.04 x64)

Create water ripple

This script-fu creates water ripples.
