This is a Python plug-in, written initially in Spanish by Mr Javier Pacheco, which from an image creates a standard complete month calendar. It has been translated in English and modified by me to try for more flexibility in the design of a standard calendar. Seven layers (plus an optional one) are added to the image to control the three main elements mostly below it on the page : background, calendar box and month-year info.
The options in the dialog are:
° Separation between the image and the calendar box
° Width of the calendar box relative to the image
The range selection script is a tool for easy and automatic creation of selections and layer masks. The selections or masks include all parts of the image that are situated within a defined range of tonal values, colours, saturation or edges. Selections can be based on one of 16 channels. For detailed instructions and several samples have a look at the attached manual.
With this script is easy to create gradients that they simulate a sunset or a natural landscape. You take a photo panoramic, it selects a thin vertical strip and it rotates it in counter-clockwise direction. You read the maximum width of the image and insert it (width / 2) like number of segments in the dialog box of the plugin.
Examples of images created with the plugin

Someone on an email list I belong to asked about ways of making a counted cross-stitch pattern from a photo. There are commercial packages that do this, but it seemed like something GIMP could do, and I wanted some Python practice.
Attached is a zip file containing the following files:
It is a python plugin (so you need to have python installed) that can dynamically manage all the resources that gimp can use. (It is basically an extension of the brush manager plugin). He has given me permission to post it here :)
Transparency crop script by J R Hunt, updated by Darrell Enns to work with Gimp 2.6.
Automatically crops out transparent edges. This is particularly useful after performing a rotate or perspective correction on a photo. It can also perform optimizations to find the crop that removes the transparent edges while mainting as much of the original image as possible.
Questo script in python altro non è che una mia personalizzazione e relativa traduzione in italiano basato sul codice "Batch resize" di Carol Spears.
Ho volutamente messo i margini a zero perchè le miniature impaginate possano essere agevolmente tagliate ed ottenere delle piccole foto da un'impaginato grande. Io lo uso per creare in maniera del tutto automatica dei mini album partendo dall'impaginato grande, infatti ci sono pure le misure che uso io col mio laboratorio che stampa in banda 406mm. Si può comunque utilizzare pure per creare delle provinature nei vari formati.
