The original scripting extension.

Gimp Mode for Emacs


Added experimental FUD debugger in version 1.48. Read the announcement on the Homepage to find out how to try it out (not enabled by default).

Other changes are mainly maintainer type/bugfixes.


Gimp Mode is an Emacs mode for developing GIMP script-fu extensions. It is very much aimed at discoverability, aided by a help system inside Emacs and fuzzy completion.

Draw spiral

New version: 3.1 (it works with GIMP 2.6.6)

Script to draw spirals into GIMP image in parametric mode.


Exposure Blend

This script is by JD Smith and updated for GIMP 2.3+ by Alan Stewart. Main website:
After installation, you can access the script from [Toolbox]/Xtns/Photography/Exposure Blend...

exposure-blend makes quick work of blending 3 bracketed exposures into a detailed, realistic, extended contrast image. It has many features to save you the drudgery of assembling contrast blended stacks yourself:


'watermark' by Doug Reynolds allows the user to add text as a watermark into an image. The watermark text is done as a lighter overlay of the background of the image. Besides the text itself, the user can choose the font from a pull-down menu, size (in pixels), location (one of the four corners), and opacity (in percent).
After installation the plugin script is availbe under the menu: Script-Fu/MyScripts/Watermark.

batch cartoon effect

A simple plugin (my first) to run the cartoon effect on multiple images. It took me a while to write whilst trying to edit a lot of photos (for a short film about geography)

it is available from /Xtns/Misc/Batch cartoon effect


This program creates stereoscopic 3D anaglyph photos from a stereo pair. In order to make use of this program you will first need a pair of images from slightly different angles or the same object. You then need to place both images as different layers in the same image window in Gimp with the right image as the Bottom layer and the left image as the next layer above it and no other layers in the image (if you use this script in other circumstances then it probably won't work properly).


Sets the selection to a sunray-like pattern, taking parameters such as inner and outer size, whether or not to have flowery edges, thickness, amount of rays, and a randomize switch.


Script to make polar array from active selection within image.


CEGUI Imageset Exporter (Script-Fu)

;Copyright (c) 2008 Anton Lopatin
; this script will create a .imageset definition file, each visible layer will be treated as a separate image and exported
; then the script will create a duplicate image, merge it down, and save with provided filename (and extension).
; copy to ~/.gimp /scripts/
; refresh scripts (Gimp->Extras->Script-Fu-> Refresh)
; make sure your image is of the size 2^n
; click Export -> CEGUI Imageset ( Found in the top image menu)


I noticed that the scanlines script-fu was not present anymore, so I cooked up a new one. This one is completely self-contained. Has a few enhancements to it, making it easier to work with. Thanks to Federico Mena Quintero for his work on the original "Erase Every Other Row" script-fu which served as part of my guide.

The script-fu will install in "<Image>/Script-Fu/Enhance".

Tested to work in GIMP 2.4.5.
