Periodically saves any open files in the current GIMP instance.

I got tired of searching for GIMP autosave and coming across developer discussions stating, in essence why autosave won't be implemented.

Global Apply Color

WARNING: This script will overwrite your images! Make a backup first.

Hi, I'm a web developer and i often want to test my designs in different colors. To avoid changing images one by one i did this simple script (my first one) to rapidly get a feel of how it looks like.

The script desaturates all open images in GIMP and creates a layer in Color mode with the color you pick on the non-transparent parts of those images and finally saves them.

Colour-match Win32 binary

Windows binary for this new plugin by Arel Welgan.

Source has been fixed for Windows compilation by Samj. Plugin no longer crashes under Windows.

Please note that all comments below, prior to Nov 28 2009 are related to another build not to this
that seems working well with RGB and RGBA images

Extract colour-match.exe from the ZIP archive and copy it to your c:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\.gimp-2.6\plug-ins\

(As Windows compilation by Samj was perfect, I kept it in the archive. Mine was several bytes larger...)

Colour Match

Easily map colours from a source colour to a target colour. Very effective for matching skin tones across images or between people.

Relatively quick (but not earth shattering). It doesn't work with grayscale or indexed images. Has preview, works with selections and layers, etc. Very, easy to use, and quite useful for portraits or recolouring graphics.

Blur & Shadow

Creates a picture which is a duplication of the current picture upscaled and blured as background,
and the current picture itself with a border and shadow around it as foreground

Original picture :
Result picture :

The second version of the script add a dialog box that let you modify the blur ratio as well as the shadow ratio.
I also added 2 toggle button to control the de-saturation of the fore/background.


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)

Cheap HDR

Provides a kind of poor-man's HDR (high dynamic range). It doesn't actually increase the dynamic range; in fact, it decreases it, overall, but in a way that maintains local contrast. But this gives you some headroom to increase the contrast of the image overall, thus enhancing the local contrast.

Jagged Border

Creates a white (or black) border around an image that merges in with the image so that on a larger white (or black) background, the image appears to have a ragged border. This is similar to the Gimp's Fuzzy Border, but it adapts its jaggedness to the image. (Also unlike Fuzzy Border, it is deterministic, it does not depend on random number seeds.)

Some examples of what I mean by a jagged border that "adapts" to the image, which also illustrate the difference between a white and black border (it's not just the color), are shown in this triplet of images:

Guillotine into Layers

Short description:,
The Guillotine-into-Layers plug-in is a variation on the Guillotine plug-in by Adam D. Moss. It is intended to address a shortcoming of the original: Too many windows opened! There is, however, a trade-off.



UPSIZE: An image upsizing plugin featuring two modes.
1. Smooth (IBFNBQH): Image upsizing with Interpolatory Box Filtered Natural BiQuadratic Histosplines. [This is the default option.]
2. Sharp (EANBQH): Exact Area image upsizing with Natural BiQuadratic Histosplines.

This plugin was written by Nicolas Robidoux and Adam Turcotte at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
