Brendan's Gimp Interface Improvement

Update 20 Sept 13: Version 3.1 released
This plugin is aimed at artists using a tablet and consists primarily of two parts:
1. - A function to automatically draw perspective guide lines for up to 3 vanishing points over an existing canvas (including with vanishing points outside the edges of the canvas)
2. - a collection of cycle tools which can be bound to tablet side buttons:
- cycle erase mode (changes paint mode from erase to normal - tool/pointer doesn't change be careful)
- cycle dynamics (cycles dynamics from Dynamics Off to Pressure Opacity)

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

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

Batch Brushes

This little bit of Script-Fu converts all images of a specified extension in a single folder to greyscale .gbr files. script-fu popup prompts you for the folder containing the images, and which extension to filter on.

Brushes are created in the same folder as the images, using the original filenames (but with .gbr as the extension instead of frex. .jpg).

Tested in Windows XP with GIMP 2.6 - not tested in other environments or versions, but as this script is very bare bones, it should work on any GIMP version from at least 2.2 up (not sure about earlier).

Rotate (and resize) Brush

Updated for version 2.6. Resizing brushes is pretty much obsolete, but rotating, mirroring and inverting brushes is still useful.

GIMP Unified Resource Manager (GURM)

This plugin was created at my suggestion by Sagenlicht at the cartographers' guild website

It is a python plugin (so you need to have python installed) that can dynamically manage all the resources that gimp can use. (It is basically an extension of the brush manager plugin). He has given me permission to post it here :)

draw-offset-point.scm

This script allow to offset n x m times the active paint-brush.

Tutorial: http://xoomer.alice.it/lwcon/gimp/script-fu/draw-offset-point.htm

resizeBrush.scm

This script resizes the brush that is currently selected.

I DID NOT write this script, I only adapted it so that it works on both windows and linux.

Rotating Brush Assistant

This script help to set up a rotating (animated) brush. Starting with one (or more) brush images, it will create rotated copies of that image in a way to allow saving the file as a gih.

Just start with an image oriented in the "drawing upwards" direction:

and run the script. With the defaults it will create a new image having all the rotated copies:

Abr brush loader

Plugin to load Photoshop ABR brushes as image in GIMP. Multiple brushes included in a file are loaded as layers. Should handle v1, v2, v6.1 and v6.2 sample brushes (though I don't known which PS release create each). Requires Gimp 2.4.

Bugzilla #377016 for v6 brush support
