Blur & Shadow

Creates a picture which is a duplication of the current picture upscaled and blured as background,
and the current picture itself with a border and shadow around it as foreground

The second version of the script add a dialog box that let you modify the blur ratio as well as the shadow ratio.
I also added 2 toggle button to control the de-saturation of the fore/background.


Takes an image, makes four 1/4 scale copies, and reflects them about vertical and horizontal axes to achieve a four-fold symmetry.

Note: As well as being atrociously inefficient (eg, by scaling the same image four times, instead of making copies after the first scaling), this code does substantially less than the "Small Tiles" dialog (which comes standard in Gimp in /Filters/Map)

Cheap HDR

Provides a kind of poor-man's HDR (high dynamic range). It doesn't actually increase the dynamic range; in fact, it decreases it, overall, but in a way that maintains local contrast. But this gives you some headroom to increase the contrast of the image overall, thus enhancing the local contrast.

Jagged Border

Creates a white (or black) border around an image that merges in with the image so that on a larger white (or black) background, the image appears to have a ragged border. This is similar to the Gimp's Fuzzy Border, but it adapts its jaggedness to the image. (Also unlike Fuzzy Border, it is deterministic, it does not depend on random number seeds.)

Some examples of what I mean by a jagged border that "adapts" to the image, which also illustrate the difference between a white and black border (it's not just the color), are shown in this triplet of images:

Draw arrow

Update [11/15/2009] : Added fixed brush width and double headed error, removed bug 1) one-point-paths, 2) horizontal paths
Update [11/16/2009] : Fixed image type restriction string
Update [11/19/2009] : Added feature for absolute wing length, fixed handling gray-scale images
Update [25/01/2010]: Fixed fixed opacity bug (thanks to Richard)

This plugin enables GIMP to draw an arbitrary arrow into an image or a new layer. The plugin has reasonable default values for every paramtere but is freely adjustable to ones needs. Parameters are:

    Calendar maker

    UPDATE (January 2011): I have updated the attached script and added a command for generating a calendar for the entire year using various languages (note that only the language of the rendered calendar is changed, the script's interface itself will still be in English). A more thorough description of the script can be found by visiting

    Render Technological Image

    Based on the set edge, pixel ammount, color and brightness, this script-fu generates a layer that looks techno.

    Here is an example of what it makes...

    You can find it when you create the image window...
    Script-Fu -> Render -> Tech

    (Note: This is my first Script-Fu)

    Steel Text (gimp 2.6)

    (en) Create a text effect that looks like shiny steel (or gold) and a dropshadow - For The Gimp 2.6.

    To create the logo text:
    File --> Create --> Logos --> Steel...

    Logo Steel

    Logo Gold (Steel)

    Spaced V-Guides

    This script creates a series of V-Guides in the image at the user defined spacing. The user also specifies if the guides should start from the left, center, or right side of the image.

    Spaced H-Guides

    This script creates a series of H-Guides in the image at the user specified spacing. The user also indicates if the guides should start at the top, center, or bottom of the image.
