Line Border

A script to create a border around an image. Border can contains additional lines (inner and outer). Size of lines and distance to image/border can be set independently. The bottom border can be extended and can contains text. There is no auto extension according to text size. The text is always in the middle of the bottom border.

(based on Eg-Border.scm script)

NOTE: I've created a new version in python and this version have much more functionality and uses own dialog, so it fits to screen ;-) Check it at:

Scale to size

Scale to size is a GIMP script that scales an image given a target for the shorter side, irrespective of the orientation of the picture (portrait or landscape mode). Afterwards the script applies unsharp mask with hardcoded parameters. The parameters have been carefully chosen to achieve a crisp appearance, ideal for internet sized pictures.

Update version 1.1: The menu entry has been moved to the Tools menu.


This script creates four entries in the Tools menu. The new functions are wrapper calls for functions provided by my other scripts to speed up my workflow.

Therefore you must install my scripts triple-border.scm and scale-to-size.scm to make this script work. Both are available here in the GIMP plugin registry:



Functions provided in version 1.0:

Border Black creates a 47 pixel wide black border around the image, separated by a 1 pixel wide frame in white

Triple Border

Triple Border is a script for The GIMP. It creates up to three coloured borders around the image.

Update version 3.0: The menu entry has been moved to the Tools menu.

Grey Point

Linear conversion of the RGB colour space, described by a starting point and an end point in RGB colour space. Typically used for the correction of colour temperature or white balance, respectively, of digital photos.

Update version 2.2: The menu entry has been moved to the Tools menu.

Add multiple guides

This plugin adds multiple guidelines to the actual image.
New guides can be simply added by pressing the "Add"-button. The last guide can be deleted by pressing the "Remove"-Button.
This tool is very useful if you make weblayouts and don't want to select every guide from the ruler.
Remember to chmod+x the file. Put it in "plug-ins"-folder.


- initial release

- freshen with GTK gui

- put under CC-BY-SA license
- added possibility to add guides in percent

Subtract Small Selection Isles

New since release 1.1: fixed crash when processing large selections, added progress handling
INSTALL: gimptool-2.0 --install isle.c


This script converts the color temperature of an image. You can specify the color temperature of the original image, and the desired color temperature of the result, as well as a brightness correction factor. The script installs itself under the menu Filters/Colors/Convert Color Temperature.

The full documentation for the script is available at

The script works for Gimp 2.2, 2.4, and 2.6 .


This script converts the colors of an image, so that the foreground color (chosen, e.g., with the color picker tool) is either transformed to gray, or to the background color. The script can be used to remove color casts. The script installs itself under the menu Filters/Colors/White balance.

The documentation for the script is available at
