Radial Copy (True Polar Array)

Note: I accidentally posted this as a plug-in first. I've now correctly posted it as a script.

This script allows the user to select an item in the image and to create a true polar array of the selected object (think kaleidoscope as opposed to Ferris wheel seats). It is useful for creating objects that possess radial symmetry.

The user can control:
-center point of rotation
-distance from the center point to the objects in the array
-starting angle for the rotation
-angle between each copied object
-number of objects in the final array.

New Engrave plugin

This plugin is an alternative to the existing Engrave plugin
supplied with GIMP.

Basically, the plug-in transforms a grayscale image into a series of
horizontal lines of varying widths.

For example, the following (small) image

can be transformed into:

(stand back 10-20 feet).

Website Window Creator Script

This script creates a new image with a window useful for web design.

To install this script, copy it to your scripts folder, then restart Gimp. If you don't know where your scripts folder is, then go to Edit > Preferences > Folders > Scripts.

To run this script, select File > Create > Website Window.

Feedback is appreciated, and I will consider any changes that you request.

repeated rotation

This script generates rotated copies of the current layer.
It can be used to draw star-like images (see jpg below)
Save the script in your scripts folder, you will find it under Layer -> Transform -> repeat rotation.

L-system & turtle graphic

These scripts are mainly aimed at generating L-system fractals using turtle graphics. As an added bonus, shapes (not fractals) and turtle trails too.
L-system (or shapes, or turtle trails) can be drawn using different tools, including path, and centered/scaled to image/layer/mask.

Save both scripts in your scripts folder, you will find it under Filters -> Render -> Turtle graphics.

Compass Wheel

This script makes a compass wheel that shows the eight main directions. The wheel can be anywhere from 301x301 to 3001x3001. The outer ring can be from 1-15 pixels thick. The pen that makes the compass lines is three pixels wide. The width of the arrows can also be controlled by the "Inner Arrow Thickness" command.

There are no text markings included for the compass wheel, so you can use any font or symbols you want to.

Gas Giant

This script is nother in a series of planet makers. This one makes a banded gas giant. There can be anywhere from one to 20 bands in the planet. Each band is an equal height, and has Plasma noise rendered in it. Each layer is then motion blurred. The result is then mapped onto a sphere, and gaussian blurred to make the edges nice and fuzzy.

Thatched cross

This script generates a pattern like the one shown in the attached png. The size of the image can be anywhere from 300x300 to 3000x3000. The pattern can be symmetric, or it can be weighted to have longer sides on one side. The color of the lines in selectable. I'm not sure what this can be used for, but it does make a nice pattern that can be tiled. Enjoy!

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!)

Technicolor 3 Color Script

Download script.

This script simulates the 3 Color Technicolor effect.
Copy it into the scripts folder from GIMP, you will find it then under Colors -> Technicolor 3 Color.
