Tone mapping

It reduces global contrast in images while increasing local contrast and shadow/highlight detail. Use this to make your images "pop."

Translucent border

Creates an outer border of the image with reduced brightness and 2 inner colours.

Wavelet denoise

The wavelet denoise plugin is a tool to reduce noise in each channel of an image separately. The default colour space to do denoising is YCbCr which has the advantage that chroma noise can be reduced without affecting image details. Denoising in CIELAB (L*a*b*) or RGB is available as an option. The user interface allows colour mode and preview channel selection. The denoising threshold can be set for each colour channel independently.

UPDATE 16 November 2008

i update all library to the newest version available.

But please note that Python itself may only partially updated (now is included 2.5.2 before was 2.5.0) since most of other py libraries included require python 2.5 and will not accept python 2.6.
And also about Python windows binary come in several version so if you have a peculiar architecture(i.e a X86 processor ) may be better for you download it directly here

Fix-CA is a Gimp plug-in to correct chromatic aberration (CA) written in C language.

Current version is Fix-CA 3.0.2.

Home page and plugin download:

GAP.2.4 ( windows installer )

GAP ( Gimp Animation Package ) 2.4.0 for Windows XP Vista (and Gimp-2.4.x )

This is not a new plugin but i think useful post the download link
Windows users often don't know how compile from source and this Windows installer is hard to trace even by Googling
Most of links will lead to the only official installer "" here but that is a obsolete version that will not work with gimp 2.4.)

compiled GAP-2.4 for Windows i'm just mirroring

Mask for Prints

Every paper size has a different shape, and none probably match the shape of the images produced by your digital camera. This little utility will create a layer showing which parts of an image will fit on the paper when printed. A wide selection of print sizes are included. Using it will help you layout your image so that important pieces aren't cut off by the printer/lab.

This script-fu was developed under Gimp-2.0 and Gimp-2.4

Golden Mailing Labels

This python plugin reads names and addresses from a MySQL database and creates golden mailing labels (with optional return label).

I created this script out of the desire to have golden text on my wedding invitation and save the date envelopes. I may have taken this too far :-)

WARNING: Some understanding of SQL required.
Screen shots & Examples added (03-18-08)

The completed envelope(s) are either displayed or exported to a png or jpeg file. I found windows preview far more capable of printing than the GIMP (sorry everybody).
