Isometric roof (26.57 degrees)

This script-fu rotates an image -/+ 26.57 degrees to help to make an isometric roof. There are some little options to resize, to cut the semi-transparent pixels, to merge down.
I don't know if this script will be very useful. It is for me, so I am sharing.

3-D Rotation Script

This script will rotate an existing image about the X, Y and Z axes. It will also include a magnification factor so you can scale your image while rotating.

The inputs are the angles to rotate the image around the X, Y, and Z axes. Some values (usually high X and Y values) will result in a very distorted picture, regardless of what other inputs you have. If you get one of those, just undo and try again. That's just the way math works, folks!


This script-fu allows to shift tiles/bricks/blocks one row or column out of two. It will help to draw brick walls, etc...

I know this is not isometry, but I want to gather together in the same directory all the little script-fu that can help draw walls, floors, roofs etc...before their transformation into isometry.



This is an attempt to automate making a galaxy via GIMP. I'd seen a few excellent tutorials, but none that could be easily automated. One of the resulting pictures is attached to this page.

The galaxy can have any number of arms, and they can have varying degrees of curvature. Very high degrees of curvature will result in an elliptical galaxy rather than a spiral. Stars can be added, and the galaxy can be set to have any perspective or color.

Black-and-White Film

A simple script that desaturates the image the way different black and white films would. The script is based on information from

Updated: ver 1.1 - replaced "Flatten Image" option with the more logical "Work on Copy".

Brick Wall

Since the previous script is for an isometric wall, the obvious choice for the next script would be one to automatically generate a wall. I'd written one previously, but this seems as good a time as any to post it!

Isometric Wall

This script-fu skews an image in order to help to draw walls for isometric projection. It can also scale image with few options (ratio, a second layer with interpolation and opacity)...

Isometric Floor

This script-fu turns a "flat" image into isometric image. This helps to draw floors. It can also scale image with few options (ratio, a second layer with interpolation and opacity)...

Why is there "a second layer with interpolation and opacity" for scaling?
There is always a first layer without interpolation to try to keep the grain texture. This is practical for stone for example. The opacity of this layer is always 100%.

Isometric Tile and Template

This script-fu creates an isometric tile in your patterns and a template from it.

This is a plugin to load GIMP curves via script-fu (or other scripting language). The plugin returns arrays with the curve values for use with
gimp-curves-spline or gimp-curves-explicit
