Translate into Palette

Gino D's GIMP Scripts:


This script creates a new palette derived from the visible area or from the active drawable (layer or channel) of the current image.

Script-Fu Composer

Complete RAD tool for Gimp to build new script with currently exists.
Drawing on MathMap Composer and Mindstorms NXT-G Programming Blocks, I decided to create a similar entity in Gimp.

This is my first hobbies, so a large program. So the fact that any comment is welcome.
After install lookup on Help -> Composer.

Please check for new version and information on

Light and shadow centroids

This Python plug-in helps in the comparison of the left part of an image to the right part (equilibrium or not). It can be applied to any type of image and computes the centroid of the gray image pixels. The centroid is similar to the centre of mass concept, where mass is replace by another quantity; here it is the lightness and the greyness of the pixel.

Batch Image Watermark Script

This post is a copy of my website post; Please see original blog post for any updates:

In short: This script allows you to add an image watermark to a directory of pictures!

Lets start (Linux users please adjust where necessary!)

Split and join images

This an improve version of "To slice and merge images" you can split your images in any number of rows and columns and join them again later.


  1. The splitted images have an Alpha Channel (transparency)
  2. The images names have sequential numbers (image1, image2...)

Bugs Fixed:

  1. The resultant images don't have the previus extension in their names
  2. The files aren't overwrited anymore

Thanks to "Anonymous" for the Alpha Channel and Giuseppe Conte

The aplication is installed in Filters->ATG

Automatic backup of open images

Thanks to 'RobA' who discussed this topic here recently, the Python plug-in '' attracted my attention. My work inspired by it is included below.
What I think is new here from the three existing one, that I know. It has a configuration section and the possibility to stop it, so you can restart with a new purpose (configuration) or not.


Another thin arrow GIMP Python plug-in called 'ArrowsCreator'.

It's characteristics are:

-produces many different types of straight arrows
-produces one type of 'path' arrow
-facilitates combination of multiple arrows
-interactive with GIMP
-developed on GIMP 2.6 (work on 2.8 except no repeat gradient in shaft and GIMP don't control brush size).

ATTENTION: don't change layer during execution of the plug-in. Also on my computer begin to get sluggish for certain type of arrow in image greater than 7 Mpx.

Compare images

A script that compare images.

This script load two images files and create:

CD Casefier - put your CD in a case

This Plug-in for Gimp will let you put a scanned CD photo into a 'virtual' case.

To use it, install the plug-in, open the CD image with Gimp and then go to Filters -> Artistic -> CD Casefier…

Select the size of the (square) output image and click OK. Depending on the image chosen, you may want to set the “Try to crop corners” option, which works best for real CD scanned pictures.
