Stit-ch-art 2.0

The Stit-ch-art is a script-fu extension for the GIMP. Stit-ch-art creates a cross-stitching chart based on a given image. It applies the modified Madeira palette with 256 colors on the copy of the image, and then scans it pixel by pixel for color codes while generating black and white chart ready for printing (includes color legend from Madeira).

The attached zip-file contains the script stitchart.scm, readme.txt, and 2 palettes: madeira.gpl and madeira256.gpl.

Gimp Plug-in for Image Registration

This is an implementation of the inverse compositional image registration algorithm for Gimp. Image registration, also known as image alignment, is the process of transforming a given image to achieve a best match with another image. The need for such a tool is given in situations where you want to combine two or more images which are similar, but geometrically do not have a perfect match.

Facial Symmetry

Most peoples faces are not symmetrical. This python plugin, allows you to easily create mirror images of a persons face. Just make a rectangular selection of the portion of the image you are interested in, and the plugin will do the rest. An example can be found on my website:

Shape It - Win32 binary

A Windows binary of this plugin by Claes G Lindblad (, ported to 2.x by Victor Ramirez. Almost a "lost and found" plugin?
It bends a text or an image according to a shape.
Create the map on a new layer. Should be black and white for best results. Add an alpha channel to both layers.
PDF version of the tutorial by Claes included.

Smart Gradient

This is a simple gradient plugin for GIMP, written in python. It applies a linear gradient to a rectangular selection, in one of four directions, using the colours of the pixels at the starting edge, and fading to the background colour, over the width, or height of the selection. To try this out, all you need to do is download the script, and store it in the gimp plugins folder, in your home directory. Remember to set the executable flag on the file. An example of use may be found on my site :

this is my first script-fu it will freeze anything you put inside it

Guillotine into Layers

Short description:,
The Guillotine-into-Layers plug-in is a variation on the Guillotine plug-in by Adam D. Moss. It is intended to address a shortcoming of the original: Too many windows opened! There is, however, a trade-off.
