Smart Gradient

This is a simple gradient plugin for GIMP, written in python. It applies a linear gradient to a rectangular selection, in one of four directions, using the colours of the pixels at the starting edge, and fading to the background colour, over the width, or height of the selection. To try this out, all you need to do is download the script, and store it in the gimp plugins folder, in your home directory. Remember to set the executable flag on the file. An example of use may be found on my site :

Scite extended Lisp/Gimp-Scheme property file

Helps with the viewing and editing of gimp scripts. The command section should be modified to accommodate your flavor of scheme.

--> Back up or rename the original
--> Save this file as
--> Then place this file in the Scite/Scintilla directory.

Have fun

N++ : gimp_scm_cmds.txt >> cntrl A -> cntrl C -> and pasted into Scheme's 'Function Word2' and then reload from disk to check highlight.

Batch Edit Color Balance, Brightness and Contrast

The script enables you to do two image adjustment operations to all images in a folder:

  1. Individually adjust the color balance in shadows, midtones and highlights
  2. Adjusting the Brightness and Contrast

You choose a folder with a folder browsing widget, you can also specify the file extension of the files you would want to change(useful if you have non supported files in the same folder).


I just notice that MathMap one of the better Gimp Plugin is not listed here.
To present it i just quote its developer Mark Probst
MathMap is an image processing application that works on several levels:

* Without any prerequisite knowledge about image processing, one can use any of the more than one hundred filters that come bundled with MathMap.

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:


This script creates nice shapes in Gimp. The model is a layer/path it will be duplicated a few times and these copys will be moved and/or rotated.
The coolest effects can made with a spline (from a path). In the new version you can choose if you take a path or a layer. The interest here is, that you don't lose on quality.

So, here's a little guide:
1. Create a path and make it visible.
2. Start the scirpt (Filters/Shapes) and make your settings.
3. Go to paths dialog, right click -> Merge Visible Paths
4. Stroke the Path with default options

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).

Paper Box creator

This script creates a new image with paper box pattern. You need just print, cut and paste together. Any entered text will be rendered on Box sides with optimal font size.

Script is installed into Filter/Utils/Paper Box creator.

    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.

    Octave Sharpening + High Pass Sharpening + Split Sharpening

    I've seen an very interessting video ( about the so called "Octave Sharpening" I've never heard. So I started searching for some information about it and found also 2 other sharpening methods (
    The PDF tutorial (second link) shows the function with Photoshop so I implemented the scripts for gimp and wondered how effectfull they are.
