This script is a filter trying to imitate the effect of Clarity slider. This is in essence USM (Unsharp Mask) masked to be effective only in midtones. For best results try large radius values (100 or above).
As currently file uploads don't seem to work, download from (remove spaces):

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
tileimages.scm -- Put n*m same sized images onto one image in n columns & m rows with optional padding, grid lines, bounding box, rounded corners and feathered edge.
If there aren't n*m images passed, the last image is repeated until n*m positions are filled.
This is useful for just passing one image, which will be tiled for all n*m positions.
If there are more images passed, only the first n*m are used.
The script implements Dan Margulis' concept, The Bigger Hammer, from his book Modern Photoshop Color Workflow, Chapter 10. Please consult this book for examples and details on using the script. The script is useful for enhancing details in highlights and/or shadows.
Create a NPOT (nearest power of two) square background colored sprite sheet that can contain at least N sprites of the given width and height with optional spacing between each sprite. Also creates guides to show the limits of these sprites.
