With this script you can give a 3D effect to a text in a text-layer. It is based on the Bump project script that is already in the standard GIMP. When started, you can adapt the depth and he direction of the 3D effect.It will create a new layer, behind the text-layer, that will contain the 3D effect.
Basic script to create a template for a 4 panel comic page. All Panels are the same size based on page size and 2X2 layout with a 50 pixel border between them. Will do some more work on the script later to make it more flexible.
If you want the panels to be clear so you can slide you images in behind them then remove the ; from the start of line 39
; (gimp-edit-clear layer)
once installed you can find the script on the filter menu (should be down near the bottom).
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).
This was an attempt to get an effect similar to the Photoshop "Water Ripple" filter. There are three modes of displacement map, one based on scaled plasma noise, one based on clouds (perlin noise) and one based on the image edges.
Everything else is at the default settings, but you can also adjust the scaling and fade.
