Diagonal Grid

Creates a new layer with a grid, rotated 45 degrees, to help you choose corners for cropping.

Move the grid until a line intersects a feature in your image, then crop so that the grid line meets a corner of your cropping rectangle. You can then use the grid to choose the opposite corner, but make sure you don't change either of the sides of your original corner.

Installs in FX-Foundry/Toolbox/Grids/Diagonal Grid

Separate Luminance

FX-Foundry/Color/Separate Luminance...

Creates two new layers: one containing the Luminance, and the other the Chroma information in the form of a Grain Merge. Optionally, it will color-enhance (maximize saturation in) the Chroma layer while still keeping it luminance-neutral.

This allows you to do noise-reduction and sharpening on the two layers separately.

Maximize Local Contrast

FX-Foundry/Photo/Enhancement/Maximize Local Contrast...
Like Stretch Contrast, but instead of using the minimum and maximum pixel values from the entire image, uses the minimum and maximum in the vicinity of a pixel to compute its new value. Takes a while to run, but really brings out textures. Result is a Grain Merge layer that adjusts values of the original image.

This filter operates on the visible image, not on a layer or selection.

L*C*h color selector

L*C*h (L*a*b* in polar coordinates) color selector module.

Just type "make install" to install this module (You don't need to rebuild the GIMP.) .

Map Scale Ruler Legend Generator

It generates a ruler to embed into geographical maps. It allows to customize scale, colors and other things.

The main options are: Step(px) and Step(unit). They define the scale of the rule. Each "px" a step is drawn, representing "unit" kilometers, miles or meters, etc.

Photo Finish

Round photo edges and apply a shadow border, i.e., 'raise the photo'

Export Selection

This script pops up a GUI which allows you to save your selection to various places

The source is your current selection (or whole image if none) applied to one of:
- the current layer
- all visible layers
- all layers

The destination is one of:
- a PNG file (saved directly to disk)
- a new image in GIMP
- a new layer in the current image

New Guides Rule of Thirds

This is a very simple script that adds the rule of thirds guides to the current image.

I used to add guide by guide by percent, then crop, remove the guides and add them again one by one. After many times I did it like that, I decided to create a script to do it faster, for which I had to self train on how to do it using script-fu, to avoid poor portability.

I created the script with my Fedora 8 Linux distribution for GIMP 2.4, but it also works for 2.6.

This script works for any platform that GIMP works with.

Installation procedure:

Export All Layers to Anime Studio Project (ANME)

This is to use if you have Anime Studio (v5), and want to convert your layered image into an character on that program. The script works on GIMP 2.4.2 and Anime Studio 5, and that's all I've tried it on. Each layer is saved as a 24-bit PNG, using each layer's name as a base, and referenced in the output ANME file. You can choose the output folder for both the ANME file and the image files. You can also rename the ANME file to something besides the base image name, but if unspecified, the ANME's name is the same as the image name, minus the extension.

Grid of guides

Add a grid of guides from number of horizontal and vertical parts in GIMP.
Tested with GIMP 2.6
