This script-fu script is a deeply modified version of the comic-book1 script by barky. While that script works well for web resolution images, higher res images need a larger cell size to keep the correct look and feel.
The plugin-interactions have been left in a active state to allow the user to fine tune the effect based on resolution.
This script uses the following default plugins:

If you ever wanted an easy way to merge three photos with different exposure settings taken from the same scene together to one image with a well balanced dynamic range - well here is the solution.
Shoot three images of one scene (with a tripod) with an exposure difference of 2-3 between two pictures. The middle one should be taken at the [P] (automatic) setting of your camera, then an over- and an underexposed one.
And be sure not to alter the aperture setting! Solely adjust the shutter speed because otherwise you would get different depth of field values.
A simple script to make the edges of a selection or layer glow with the selected colour. The script will act on the active selection first, and if it cannot find that, the alpha channel of the current layer. All changes are made to a separate layer so you can duplicate, mask and move them around to your heart's content.
Update: November 10, 2010 - minor bug fix to unselect after applying warming.
A couple of recent threads in the Gimp Users group on Flickr concerned how to warm or otherwise change the tone of an image. Since moving to The Gimp, I truly missed my warming filter, and didn't know how best to do this manually. This script takes some of the wonderful tips and suggestions and automates them.
Some of the script options are explained as follows
Resize-match-dpi is a GIMP Script-Fu script to resize or scale an image along with scaling the DPI. If we scan a 4.75″ x 4.70″ image at 300 DPI with a pixel resolution of 1425 x 1409 and we want to scale it down to 1280×1266, most programs will rescale the image but not touch the DPI. This means when the image is viewed or printed it will appear too small (4.27″ x 4.22″). This script scales the DPI to match the new pixel resolution so it will still appear as 4.75″ x 4.70″. Comments are greatly appreciated.
Just getting this up, so the description will be short for now. Double HSV Film Grain was originally a work-around that simulates Photoshop's film grain filter. It has become more than that, though. Simple to use, it has a few features that go beyond simple noise filters. There is the option to either compress the layers down to the original, or keep the three separate working layers to be manipulated individually. There is also an option to limit the working layers to just two noise layers.
Still testing it for bugs, so any input would be appreciated.
