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).

Rotating Brush Assistant

This script help to set up a rotating (animated) brush. Starting with one (or more) brush images, it will create rotated copies of that image in a way to allow saving the file as a gih.

Just start with an image oriented in the "drawing upwards" direction:

and run the script. With the defaults it will create a new image having all the rotated copies:

Pseudo Tone Fixer

This script tries to fix the tone of a photo taken with wrong exposure. In some landscape photos, it can have a nice effect of enhancing the colors.

The general idea is to produce different copies of the image at different gamma levels, then applying simple tone mapping techniques to produce a vibrant photo.

The script allows the user to control the number of copies by setting the lowest and highest gamma setting then the interval. For example lowest=20, highest=170, interval=10 results to (170-20)/10 = 15 copies with increasing gamma level from 0.2 to 1.7. Play around!
