Multi scale

Scales an image multiple times in defined step sizes until the desired size is reached while retaining the aspect ratio of the image.

This is basically the "Scale in steps" script from K.-M. Hansche tailored to my needs.

Give the desired size of the image and select whether this is for width or height. The step size defines how much pixels the image will be shrunken every time. When flattening the image, the layers will be merged and the image is automatically cropped. The other options control the scaling itself.

Glossy Stroke 3D

This python plug-in strokes or fills the current selection and creates a 3D glossy effect with a dropped shadow. The color, brush, lighting, and shadow are adjustable through the initial dialog. Use the Filters/Light and Shadow/GlossyStroke 3D menu.

Note: Depending on the color, adjusting the opacity of the "volume" layers can give better results.

It is my first GIMP plugin, so any comment, criticism or improvement is appreciated. The 3D effect parameter could certainly be improved.

12/16/10 - Version 1.2.0
- The light direction is now opposite to the shadow.

Color Vision Deficiency

Simulates different types of color vision deficiency (color blindness) with differing levels of severity.
In addition to the functionality of the display filter "Color Vision Deficiency", this plug-in also simulates color weakness, not just complete color blindness and allows to save the resulting image.

  • Protanomaly (red weak)
  • Deuteranomaly (green weak)
  • Tritanomaly (blue weak)

At a severity level of 1.0, it simulates dichromacy, i.e. the complete absence of the relevant color receptor:

  • Protanopia (red blind)
  • Deuteranopia (green blind)

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:
