Planetary Ring System - Updated for Gimp 2.6

This script makes a ring system that you can add to a picture of a planet, and was adapted from a Photoshop script. This script is updated for GIMP v2.6
The ring system can be any size from 300x300 to 3000x3000, and can be tilted to any angle. The whirl-and-pinch portion of the script is time consuming, but using at least 8 iterations make the rings look very nice. The thickness of the rings can be controlled using the inner and outer ring ratio values in the script. The closer these two values are together, the narrower the ring.

TGA Batch Save

Save all layers as TGA files, discarding alpha channels and applying layer masks as alpha if they exist. Name becomes imagename-layername.tga
This script is created by Joao S. O. Bueno at my request and I take no credit for it's development.
Appears in /Layer/Transparency/Copy Mask to Other layers of the Image window.


this script adds an "anitools" submenu to the "script-fu" menu with entries useful for creating (optimized) animated GIFs:
create scanlines: paint every other horizontal line in each layer with the current foreground layer. this can decrease the size of the resulting GIF and some people like the look :-)
set image framerate: set the frame rate for all layers in the current image.
set layer framerate: set the frame rate for just the current layer.

High Pass Filter

A general purpose high-pass filter plugin. It shows up as Filters->Generic->High Pass Filter. You can select a blur radius that sets the size of detail to be passed by the filter, as well as an option to keep the source layer or replace it.

EDIT: Updated to use grain extract rather than the previous method, This looses less histogram data and is closer to the Photoshop version...

It actually implements 5 different high pass modes:

Gimp Mode for Emacs


Added experimental FUD debugger in version 1.48. Read the announcement on the Homepage to find out how to try it out (not enabled by default).

Other changes are mainly maintainer type/bugfixes.


Gimp Mode is an Emacs mode for developing GIMP script-fu extensions. It is very much aimed at discoverability, aided by a help system inside Emacs and fuzzy completion.

Exposure Blend

This script is by JD Smith and updated for GIMP 2.3+ by Alan Stewart. Main website:
After installation, you can access the script from [Toolbox]/Xtns/Photography/Exposure Blend...

exposure-blend makes quick work of blending 3 bracketed exposures into a detailed, realistic, extended contrast image. It has many features to save you the drudgery of assembling contrast blended stacks yourself:

Flip Cells - picture filter

Posting this picture filter here specially because it's very rare and difficult to find picture filters made as plug-in for Gimp coded in Python - publishing this would be also for encouraging people on enrich Gimp with good filters (better than mine one, please! :-D )

The only problems of this filter is it seems to be somehow slow (even having a simple code), wich takes 20 seconds with a 320x200 picture - it's also missing undo and progress bar while running...
