Eyeball - Updated for v2.6

This script will make a single eyeball, and has been updated for v2.6. The colors of the iris, and size of the pupil, lighter iris, and darker iris, are all adjustable. Ideally, the inner eye color should be about half the brightness of the outer eye color to provide a nice transition from the pupil, but any two colors can be used. The image itself can be anywhere from 300x300 to 3000x3000 in size. The eye will have a transparent background. Enjoy! The attached picture is what the final product will look like (your colors may vary, obviously!)

Scale in steps


"Scale in steps" resizes an image to the given dimensions in several steps to get a way sharper result compared to resizing in one step. The step size is given in percent and should range between seven and ten percent.


None of the sample images are sharpened. The original picture was 3000×2000.

Stepsize: 5%
Stepsize: 10%

Planetary Ring System - Updated for Gimp 2.6

This script makes a ring system that you can add to a picture of a planet, and was adapted from a Photoshop script. This script is updated for GIMP v2.6
The ring system can be any size from 300x300 to 3000x3000, and can be tilted to any angle. The whirl-and-pinch portion of the script is time consuming, but using at least 8 iterations make the rings look very nice. The thickness of the rings can be controlled using the inner and outer ring ratio values in the script. The closer these two values are together, the narrower the ring.


This script allow to offset n x m times the active paint-brush.

This is an Exif Viewer, mainly for jpeg photos taken with a digital camera. It is an update of the "Exif Browser" plugin from the old registry. It requires a recent version of libexif (tested with 0.6.16).

TGA Batch Save

Save all layers as TGA files, discarding alpha channels and applying layer masks as alpha if they exist. Name becomes imagename-layername.tga
This script is created by Joao S. O. Bueno at my request and I take no credit for it's development.
Appears in /Layer/Transparency/Copy Mask to Other layers of the Image window.


Iconify2 plug-in converts a single layer of a single image into a multi-layered image ready to be saved as a Windows icon.
;The new image will contain all standard sizes (16x16, 32x32, 48x48) at all standard bit depths (16 colors, 256 colors, 32-bit RGBA), with transparency support.
*Note: Not fully tested though, so be sure to try it on an "expendable" copy of an image first.
**Tested on - Gimp 2.4.6
- Gimp Portable 2.4.6

GIMP Indexed palette selection tools

I wrote this script using GIMP bug #88361 as inspiration.
This script provides three functions that expand GIMP's ability to deal with indexed colors. I designed them with pixel artists in mind, who frequently store their target palette as a set of swatches in one region of the image they're working on.

(Image) > Colors > Map > Colormap to palette
Creates a GIMP palette based on an indexed image's colormap, which can then be used just like any normal GIMP palette.
