Hi this is my second Script-Fu and it seems a few people liked it so i thought i would post it here at the registry.
It's a SCM script so it will go in your scripts folder.
Just open a image and select the layer you want to work on and go to Filters>Artistic>Embroidery Stitcher.
The script is non interactive, that is to say it just runs with no adjustments (for now), and should work on any layer or image.I may add a stitch width adjustment later.
2013-03-01 - Minor revision upgrade:
updated the nuvola-tools-install-commands.sh to work with the more recent Debian Wheezy (debian testing)
You will be able to use nuvola tools on a more recent system and it's likely to work in Ubuntu too!
NUVOLA TOOLs offer advanced grayscale cleaning and processing functions for your scans,
automates removal of shadows, dust and toner particles typical of less than perfect prints ,
screentones removal through automated shape and topology recognition and much more!
BIMP is a graphical batch plugin to apply a set of GIMP manipulations on groups of images.
You can use predefined manipulations like resize, crop, flip, rotate, color correction, sharpen, watermark, format conversion, rename, but you can also select other installed plugins or script-fu and apply them to each image.
These are plugins re-compiled for Gimp-2.7.5 (latest LAST pre release before Gimp-2.8)
now have larger previews. All three plugins are included in one zip file.
