This tag should only be used if the script or plug-in is not specific to one GIMP version at all. This is most likely never the right tag to use.

Djvu Read plugin

This is a plugin in the making , read has been rather shabbily implemented . Write has not yet been implemented.
The dependency is libdjvulibre & the other usual dependencies. It is built using the Gimp plugin template.

Straighten & Crop by Bert Hinz

This plugin is by Bert Hinz. As his web site seems to be down, I'm archiving it here. It says it's "free software" (looks like part of the GPL Licence) so I'm assuming this is OK. Description from the script:

Demonstrate built-in GUI widgets for Gimp plugins written in Python

This plug-in is a demonstration for python programmers of Gimp plug-ins. It displays almost all the built-in GUI widgets for parameters to plugins. It shows what a plug-in dialog can be using what is built into PyGimp. An alternative to using what is built in, is to use a Python GUI library such as pygtk.

Motivation: the documentation seems sparse for PyGimp GUI widgets. This is example code.

It does nothing to Gimp images, it's not for users, just for beginning programmers.

Pencil drawing

The script makes a pencil drawing from a photo. It's very easy to handle.
The original tutorial can be found here:
Here you can see a little example:

Batch watermarking and resizing

This plug-in is designed for batch watermarking and resizing of image files. It lets you choose the directory which contains the images, the file extension, the font, the copyright text and the options associated with the processing. Useful for photographers who upload a lot of photos on the web and don't want to watermark every single file individually. The resulting images contain between one and four instances of the copyright text (selectable as an option).

Trace (Gimp plugin in Python, frontend for autotrace)

Quantizes (reduces color count) and traces outlines or centerlines, into a new image. Optionally creates paths for the outlines or centerlines. Also can be used to generate an SVG file for an image.

Calls autotrace (a separate program that must also be installed) to do the tracing (to SVG, a vector file format) and then imports the SVG back into Gimp.

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)


Watermarks a bunch of photos with the watermark file specified. Files are output to the ./WM subdirectory in the format specified.

The watermark is applied with a difference mode overlay in the bottom right corner. Let me know if something should be parametrized.

I run this script like so:

gimp -i -b '(python-fu-watermarker RUN-NONINTERACTIVE "{PATH-TO-FILES}" "{PATH-TO-WATERMARK}" "jpg")' -b '(gimp-quit 0)'

Exact Aligner

This script brings 2 pictures to an exact overlap.
The pictures must be in 2 different layers of the same image.
Get the layer 2 with 50% transparency. This makes both pictures visible in one projection.
You have to tell the script, which 2 points have to overlap. Therefore you stroke a path with a path tool in the image including 4 points. Point 1 will be aligned with point 3 and point 2 will be aligned with point 4.
The points build one path. So you can just click the 4 points consecutively.
More description is in the file.

Palette to Image

Palettes Menu -> Palette to Image

Take the active (selected) palette and create an image containing the colors and their names. Requires python.

- Font: pick the font for the name listing
- Size: size of each color

Tested with 2.6 and linux, but should work cross-platform.

TODO: it's hardcoded to a minimum of 200px wide - I should change that to something more reasonable. Some nice additions would be bg and text color selectors, and possibly some layout options (spacing, columns, etc.)

Have fun ;)
