tiles to files

Partitions an image into tiles (with, optionally, either gaps or overlaps between them) and then writes each tile as a separate jpeg file.

An alternative method of doing the same thing would involve first setting up a grid of guides (eg,, then using Image->Transform->Guillotine (as noted here:, and then saving each of the generated images to a file.


Takes an image, makes four 1/4 scale copies, and reflects them about vertical and horizontal axes to achieve a four-fold symmetry.

Note: As well as being atrociously inefficient (eg, by scaling the same image four times, instead of making copies after the first scaling), this code does substantially less than the "Small Tiles" dialog (which comes standard in Gimp in /Filters/Map)

# GIMP plugin to count the number of tiles of the FG color

This plugin breaks the layer into tiles and counts the number of tiles containing a percentage of the FG color, and optionally draws a grid in the bg color. The plug-in also reports the total percentage of the FG color in the layer. For best results, use a flattened copy of your layered image.
