Extended Split Tone

This script creates two sets of layers - one for highlights and second for shadows.
You can then adjust the tone by changing of opacity each R,G,B layer.

Launch from: Script-Fu -> Color -> Extended Split Tone

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.

Find and Replace Text

Find and Replace Text on all text layers.

Find: text to search for
Replace: text to replace with
Replace All: replace every match [YES/no]
Case Sensitive: match case [YES/no]

The plug-in is found at Edit->Find & ReplaceText...

Tested on Ubuntu 8.10, GIMP 2.7 (SVN).

Could use some further testing, esp. on other platforms.
Matching is done using Python's re.sub function - so special character should work (\n, *, +, etc.).


Gimp-image-subtraction-plugin Win32

Just a Win32 compilation of Alexandre Heitor Schmidt's gimp-image-subtraction-plugin. Works with Gimp v2.6
I only changed the name "gimp-plugin-template" to "image-subtraction" in all source files before compiling with msys/MinGW. I didn't include translations or help, which are empty files and wouldn't work even under Linux.
Filter is still found in [Image]/Filters/Misc/Image subtraction. Tell me whether you like a better place.

Add Rule Of Thirds guides

Add simple "Rule of Thirds" guides in GIMP.

This plug-in is so simple, it might also be useful as a python-fu template.

Midnight Sepia Script

This script implements midnight sepia effect as described here

The script has been tested on Gimp 2.4, Gimp 2.6


As a technical editor/writer, I found the need for a plugin to easily crop application screenshots with that somewhat jagged "torn-off" appearance. I found a way to manually obtain the effect I needed, and simply replicated the steps in a Python script, using the gimpfu module.

Film Grain

This script adds a realistic film grain effect to a black and white or toned image. To install, copy the attached file to GIMP/share/gimp/2.0/scripts. The larger the file you are running it on, the larger the value you should have for Strength. The value for Sharpness depends on your preferences, but I usually start at 1 and go from there. The lower the value, the sharper the noise.

Auto convert and resize images

It automatically converts and it resize entire collections of images. The script reads from text file the complete path of the images to convert, one complete path for every line of text.


Import Kuler (ASE) palettes

Import Kuler palettes into GIMP 2.6.

Palettes Dock -> Menu -> Palettes Menu -> Import Kuler palette...

This plug-in requires Python.  Also, make sure that the .py file is executable! If you have already installed previous version of the plug-in, you must remove the old version.

Should now correctly handle RGB and La*b* palettes. Also, basic support is there for CMYK palettes - however, the CMYK conversion is not 100% accurate.  One or more of your RGB values may be 1 less than what is specified in the Kuler interface.
