GAT Tools (handling multiple guides)

English

GAT stands for GIMP-Atelier. We are present a set of tools to handle guides.

With this package you could create multiple guides in one step, could use predefined guide sets e.g. Golden Ratio or Third Rule, save to and load from File your own sets.

Save all Layers as seperate bmp using a specified palette

This I made for people creating sprite animationes. It can reduce the size for all images to 8 bit indexed without mixing up colors that should stay she same, like backgound colors that are supposed to become a transparent color.
It is my first GIMP script anyway and is a modified version of the sg-save-all-layers script.
It just saves a stack of layers as .bmp files with a palette of your choice in the specified directionary.

Diamond Grid

This is yet another in a series of "grid" scripts. I tried to shoe-horn this one into the circular grid script (found here: http://registry.gimp.org/node/25206), but there were too many other variables that were specific to the diamonds. It also gave me a chance to do a bit of code clean-up.

Android Icon

Applies Android menu icon style to image.

Requires Layer Effects plugin to work. In fact, this plugin just applies a series of layer effects with preset settings to image to achieve Android menu icon look. The plugin includes a batch mode, which can be used from command line like this:

gimp -i --batch-interpreter=python-fu-eval -b 'pdb.python_fu_androidicon_batch(None, None, "/path/to/pictures/*.svg", "/path/to/res");pdb.gimp_quit(1)'

Tested with GIMP 2.6

Hex and Triangle grids

This script will construct either a hexagonal or triangular grid. It's a kind-of follow-up script to the circular grid one I made a bit earlier. (If you wanted that one instead, look here: http://registry.gimp.org/node/25206)

You choose the size of the image, and the length of side of the shape. The shapes can be filled with up to six different colors, a white background, transparent, or completely random colors. There is also an option to set up the grid so that it will tile seamlessly. I've attached a picture showing a hexagonal tiling grid generated with this script.

Adaptive Threshold Edge Detect

An alternative edge detector based on the implementation in the OpenIllusionist project.

The original algorithm requires scaling down of the entire image area to be processed and it would have to be completely re-written to work with GIMP tiles. Since this plugin is a simple adaptation of the original algorithm it does not make use of tiles and therefore it needs to allocate a lot of memory to work. So please be aware that it may have problems if you attempt to use it on an extremely large image!

"Find Help" script

The script allow to access with a single click to the best gimp help forum and video tutorial side, as bonus also allow immediate access to the creative commune image search engine

"Find Help" adds 3 submenu, 2 in Help ("Help Forum", and "Video Tutorial") and 1 in Image ("Browse CreativeCommons")

links are for GimpChat,GimpTalk, the Flickr Gimpusers Group, MeetTheGimp,Gimptrick (on youtube), and the CreativeCommons Image search

But is trivial modify and/or add links.

Circular Grids

This script will make a grid of circles. You input the diameter of the circles, the number of circles in the X and Y directions, the space between the edges of the circles, and if you want the circles in a rectangular or a hexagonal grid. The two attached images show pictures of the default rectangular and hexagonal grid created by this script. The circles and background can be any colors. This script could be useful for selection masks, making pictures of bubble wrap, or lots of other things that I haven't thought of!

Selection bevel

New version of selection bevel released. Bugs of the last version have been fixed, and additionally a new feature added: now you can adjust the width and height of the bevel independently, creating neat effects where the bevel is thinner on some edges, or uneven.

Render texture

This script automates creating simple textures, using solid noise/emboss. Easily create paper-like textures or more coarse gravel-like ones.

The texture appears on it's own layer. You can adjust opacity, layer mode, and various other settings beforehand, and you can also see a preview of how it will look.

The plugin is coded for 2.6. I haven't tried it on 2.7.
Comments & feedback are welcome.

NOTE!!
When you download the script, rename it so that you change the extension from ".py.txt" to ".py", otherwise it will not work.
