golden

Golden-ratio circle effect

This plugin takes an existing image (i.e. a petal) and creates a new one by placing the original repetitively in the new one while rotating and scaling the successive copies (typically rotating the golden angle of 137.5° and scaling down just a little bit each step) resulting in beautiful forms that resemble the work of nature (i.e. a flower)

It can be also used to create animations of spiral falling objects, and other funny things.

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).
