Calendar with image

This is a Python plug-in, written initially in Spanish by Mr Javier Pacheco, which from an image creates a standard complete month calendar. It has been translated in English and modified by me to try for more flexibility in the design of a standard calendar. Seven layers (plus an optional one) are added to the image to control the three main elements mostly below it on the page : background, calendar box and month-year info.
The options in the dialog are:
° Separation between the image and the calendar box
° Width of the calendar box relative to the image

White background & Shadow

This script takes a picture, create a white background, and off-center the foreground on it. Then it add a dropped shadow.

Updated 2011/11/28: I've modified the script to have it work without any error messages with at least Gimp 2.7.4

Colour-match Win32 binary

Windows binary for this new plugin by Arel Welgan.

Source has been fixed for Windows compilation by Samj. Plugin no longer crashes under Windows.

Please note that all comments below, prior to Nov 28 2009 are related to another build not to this
that seems working well with RGB and RGBA images

Extract colour-match.exe from the ZIP archive and copy it to your c:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\.gimp-2.6\plug-ins\

(As Windows compilation by Samj was perfect, I kept it in the archive. Mine was several bytes larger...)

Colour Match

Easily map colours from a source colour to a target colour. Very effective for matching skin tones across images or between people.

Relatively quick (but not earth shattering). It doesn't work with grayscale or indexed images. Has preview, works with selections and layers, etc. Very, easy to use, and quite useful for portraits or recolouring graphics.

Blur & Shadow

Creates a picture which is a duplication of the current picture upscaled and blured as background,
and the current picture itself with a border and shadow around it as foreground

The second version of the script add a dialog box that let you modify the blur ratio as well as the shadow ratio.
I also added 2 toggle button to control the de-saturation of the fore/background.

Cheap HDR

Provides a kind of poor-man's HDR (high dynamic range). It doesn't actually increase the dynamic range; in fact, it decreases it, overall, but in a way that maintains local contrast. But this gives you some headroom to increase the contrast of the image overall, thus enhancing the local contrast.

Jagged Border

Creates a white (or black) border around an image that merges in with the image so that on a larger white (or black) background, the image appears to have a ragged border. This is similar to the Gimp's Fuzzy Border, but it adapts its jaggedness to the image. (Also unlike Fuzzy Border, it is deterministic, it does not depend on random number seeds.)

Some examples of what I mean by a jagged border that "adapts" to the image, which also illustrate the difference between a white and black border (it's not just the color), are shown in this triplet of images:

Curve Bend Between Paths

This is a simplified front end to the curve bend script to help in straightening a distorted image. Create two paths with a maximum of 17 nodes each (drawn from left to right) tracing the existing image top and bottom curve, and it the script will calculate the curve bend parameters and run it to straighten the image.

After running the script, you can crop as desired, or perform further correction by shearing, or rotating the image by 90 degrees, drawing two new paths and running the script again

Image in sample was provided by lontarm at gimptalk.

Exact Aligner

This script brings 2 pictures to an exact overlap.
The pictures must be in 2 different layers of the same image.
Get the layer 2 with 50% transparency. This makes both pictures visible in one projection.
You have to tell the script, which 2 points have to overlap. Therefore you stroke a path with a path tool in the image including 4 points. Point 1 will be aligned with point 3 and point 2 will be aligned with point 4.
The points build one path. So you can just click the 4 points consecutively.
