Export Layers as PDF

I'm tired of building a PDF from layers manually so I finally got around to scripting it. This requires "convert" from ImageMagick to be installed. It has been tested on Linux(Ubuntu).

Flexible layers handling

These two scripts help you with some basic operations on images with a lot of layers (some hundreds or so), for instance when you work on animations (one frame consists of several layers, which belong together). You can set linking and visibility status, opacitymode, and (or) process opacity fadings, which all can be done repeatedly for subgroups or for independant single layers (by stepping throughout the whole layerstack or by a definable cyclelength).

CloneLayer Tool - GIMP 2.7.x - Updated!

Hello all!

I'm web-developer. I use the Gimp for making a web2-widgets or for small parts of design.
Usually, my work requires frequent duplication of layers and their exact placement on the canvas. However, the Gimp does not have a tool to perform batch processing of images (layers). So, I decided to write a small plugin that solves this problem. And I did it! I hope it will useful for you....

Export Layers

A script to save the layers of an image as separate files in a specified directory. Allows the user to specify the structure of the exported filenames (exported file type is determined by extension).

Muted Colors

This is my first script-fu plugin. It is an adaptation of 3 different methods for muting the colors in an image.  

1. A simple copy of the existing layer, desaturating it with luminosity, and setting opacity over the original.

2. One of my methods for producing similar results as described by the originator (Flickr user Tennessee_Gator):

Split layer into tiles

Split a layer into many layers, one for each tile. This is useful for editing tile-based images for some games and applications.

If somehow I forget to update the script in this page, check also:


Reduces high ISO banding, blue haze and somewhat chroma noise. Intended for images produced by Olympus gear on higher ISO settings, could be useful on images from other companies. It's fast, but alters colors, lightning of the scene in a dodge-burn fashion. New version adds Gaussian blur on Y, Cr & Cb channels, which can be used separately.

When saving script please remove ending '.txt' extension, and make sure script is marked as executable.

Merge Animation

This script takes two animations, using layers as frames, and merges them together with the blend mode and offsets specified. You can choose to make the animation length be the LCM of the two animation lengths, or the minimum length.
