Polka Dot effect

This plug-in turns selected layer into a Polka Dot image.
Inspired by this tutorial:

More example on (Download-->Plugin Gimp)

Fuse layers

This script will join together all the layers of an image into a new image.
Useful for creating sprite sheets.

It will appear under Filters -> Combine -> Fuse layers.

Export as SVG

I have modified 'Export Layers as PNG' script of Chris Mohler to generate a svg file beside exporting pngs. It can also create Inkscape layers.

For installation and other tips please look at 'Export Layers as PNG' page:

Brick Wall

Since the previous script is for an isometric wall, the obvious choice for the next script would be one to automatically generate a wall. I'd written one previously, but this seems as good a time as any to post it!

Command line and batch pencil line drawing from photo image

This is a modified version of the script at which allows you to run it from the command line, automatically merging the layers and saving to the same filename. I also created a simple batch wrapper around this, based on the code at and sliced and diced it appropriately.

[Taken from the original script page, hope they don't mind!]

Clear paper to "white" for a scanned pictures

This simple script helps to clear "gray" paper-background for a scanned documents (pictures) to a white color. It is used by myself to clear lot of files. In batch mode, processed files must have extension JPG and changed versions will be saved to the same place, replacing original. Tested on Win32 GIMP v2.6, but i think will work with other 2.x too.

p.s. the main idea of the script is described on the this page (russian only, sorry).


CarTOONize your pictures using a script-fu script. Script has controls for adjusting the line thickness, as well as the 'black' shadows. Now you can adjust the number of color levels from 1 to 5 (the default is 4), 1 being very flat, 5 adding more color levels. Can enable/disable the black shadows, as well as a pre-filter * (It uses the GREYCstoration, G'MIC, Selective Gaussian, or Despeckle filter as a 'surface blur' to eliminate noise, which is user selectable). You can now either overwrite existing or generate a new layer.

Valve Texture Format

Allows the GIMP to read and write Valve Texture Format files on Windows. Download the latest release and source code at

A relatively simple save options screen is used; to access VTF's more esoteric features make your textures with VTFEdit.

There are two GIMP-specific features. You can:

Map to Object-BIG-preview

MAP to Object is already included in gimp but with a too poor and microscopic a preview
with a simple hack i multiplied the hardcoded preview size from 100x100 to 600x400 to offer a much bigger preview. you may see the difference!

gimp -Map to Object-hack

would be possible with some knowledge of C a much better preview:

Lighting Effect-BIG-preview

Lighting Effect is already included in gimp but with a preview too poor and microscopic to be of some utility

with a simple hack i multiplied the hardcoded preview size from 100x100 to 600x400 .
. you may see the!

gimp -Lighting Effect-hack

would be possible with some knowledge of C a much better preview:
