The original scripting extension.

Colors and grain

This is a very simple script for method of image processing othen used by myself - splitting picture into a two assembled layers: colors and grain. This gives us a very lot of capabilities of changing picture without making a hard artefacts inside it.

You can read more about the script, with a sample of use here:

p.s. i'm also add a second version - for a slow machines; it do same thing, but by the little diffrent way.

Fuse layers

This script will join together all the layers of an image into a new image.
Useful for creating sprite sheets.

It will appear under Filters -> Combine -> Fuse layers.

3-D Rotation Script

This script will rotate an existing image about the X, Y and Z axes. It will also include a magnification factor so you can scale your image while rotating.

The inputs are the angles to rotate the image around the X, Y, and Z axes. Some values (usually high X and Y values) will result in a very distorted picture, regardless of what other inputs you have. If you get one of those, just undo and try again. That's just the way math works, folks!

Charcoal Layer FX

Script-Fu Charcoal-Layer-FX v1.0 by Micomicon March 2011

A Gimp script which takes the effect from my Charcoal script and adds it as a layer or layers. NB. Does not require charcoal.scm to be installed.

Opening the Layers Dialog and scrolling through the layer modes afterwards can produce some interesting results akin to adding a watercolour wash, the strength of which can be varied by adjusting the opacity slider.

Thanks to mahvin for this change of direction.

To install (Linux):
Download and move the script file charcoal-layer-FX.scm to /yourhome/.gimp-2.x/scripts.


This script-fu allows to shift tiles/bricks/blocks one row or column out of two. It will help to draw brick walls, etc...

You can find "00 - Offset by froGgy" in Filters>2D Isometric-Fu>

I know this is not isometry, but I want to gather together in the same directory all the little script-fu that can help draw walls, floors, roofs etc...before their transformation into isometry.


Mark Number Circles


This is a script for The GIMP, a image manipulation program. Basically it consists in drawing circles with sequencial numbers inside, so some can "label" parts of a image to reference in another document.


To install it, just move the script to your local scripts directory, in Unix systems it is located at ~/.gimp-2.x/scripts. I don't know about Windows.


This is an attempt to automate making a galaxy via GIMP. I'd seen a few excellent tutorials, but none that could be easily automated. One of the resulting pictures is attached to this page.

The galaxy can have any number of arms, and they can have varying degrees of curvature. Very high degrees of curvature will result in an elliptical galaxy rather than a spiral. Stars can be added, and the galaxy can be set to have any perspective or color.



Script-Fu Charcoal v1.0 Tested with Gimp 2.6

A Gimp script which turns a photograph into a black and white image which can look quite like a charcoal drawing. Works with RGB, Indexed and Greyscale images.

Results can be variable and are dictated by the tonal values of the photo used. Although small adjustments can cause quite large differences, the default settings should provide a reasonable starting point but do be prepared to experiment.

Black-and-White Film

A simple script that desaturates the image the way different black and white films would. The script is based on information from

Updated: ver 1.1 - replaced "Flatten Image" option with the more logical "Work on Copy".

Load images for HDR blending

Load 3 or 5 images of an exposure series into GIMP for HDR blending.

This is a helper script aimed at automating the loading procedure of the GIMP HDR Workflow described at


Here's a quick overview of the HDR workflow:
