Narly Sprite

NOTE If you want to live on the bleeding edge of this plugin, I'm currently using github ( for my version control.

Narly Sprite is meant to help you create and edit sprite sheets. Pretty simple.

Narly Sprite requires Gimp 2.8+ because it uses group layers to organize the frames in the sprite.

Features include:

Sprite tape & de-tape

Based on sprite tape - 0.3, these two scripts are complementary.

sprite-tape converts multiple "frames" (think animation frames) one per layer to an image of an array of "frames" in a single layer with a specified gutter between frames. sprite_tape-0.4 differs from 0.3 in the way that the gutter between frames is created.

Sprite tape

Sprite tape

This small script create sprite "tape" (which are used as resources in 2D games) from separate images.

For using this script you must copy file in your Gimp python scripts directory (GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins for example), run Gimp, open your first frame of sprite tape, then using image menu: File->Open as layers open all other frames. After that using image menu Python-Fu->Sprites->Sprite tape launch the my script and input how many sprites will be placed in horisontal and vertical positions. Press Ok button!
