Select Top/Previous/Next/Bottom Layer Only

This script cycles through layers making the active layer the only visible layer (useful for hand-editing simple animations) similar to Layer > Stack > Select Next/Previous Layer.

Export Layers as PNG

File->Export Layers->as PNG

Prompts for a folder to save PNG files. Pretty straightforward. *Requires* python!

Should work with 2.4.x through 2.8.x. Will NOT work with some 2.7.x versions and the 2.8 RC1! 2.7 users should move on to current git and 2.8 RC users should upgrade to current 2.8.

Updates:
- toggle to flatten (remove transparency).
- toggle to save only visible layers
- now saves as filename + layername and special characters are removed
- toggle to remove layer offsets
- toggle to zealous crop each PNG before saving

Layer Informations

Script-fu that displays the active layer name and x, y, w, h

Range Selection Script

The range selection script is a tool for easy and automatic creation of selections and lay­er masks. The selections or masks include all parts of the image that are situated within a defined range of tonal values, colours, saturation or edges. Selections can be based on one of 16 channels. For detailed instructions and several samples have a look at the attached manual.

Extended Split Tone

This script creates two sets of layers - one for highlights and second for shadows.
You can then adjust the tone by changing of opacity each R,G,B layer.

Launch from: Script-Fu -> Color -> Extended Split Tone

Find and Replace Text

Find and Replace Text on all text layers.

Find: text to search for
Replace: text to replace with
Replace All: replace every match [YES/no]
Case Sensitive: match case [YES/no]

The plug-in is found at Edit->Find & ReplaceText...

Tested on Ubuntu 8.10, GIMP 2.7 (SVN).

Could use some further testing, esp. on other platforms.
Matching is done using Python's re.sub function - so special character should work (\n, *, +, etc.).

TODO:

Merge Visible with Layer Mask & Alpha

Merge visible using the active layer transparency to create a mask, visible layers below are discarded.

This can be useful in 3d applications to preserve texture maps that belong in the alpha channel by using the bottom layer's mask to hold the information.

Appears in /Image/Merge Visible with Layer Mask & Alpha of the Image window.
