Shape It - Win32 binary

A Windows binary of this plugin by Claes G Lindblad (http://www.algonet.se/~claesg/shapeit.html), ported to 2.x by Victor Ramirez. Almost a "lost and found" plugin?
It bends a text or an image according to a shape.
Create the map on a new layer. Should be black and white for best results. Add an alpha channel to both layers.
PDF version of the tutorial by Claes included.

Shapes

This script creates nice shapes in Gimp. The model is a layer/path it will be duplicated a few times and these copys will be moved and/or rotated.
The coolest effects can made with a spline (from a path). In the new version you can choose if you take a path or a layer. The interest here is, that you don't lose on quality.

So, here's a little guide:
1. Create a path and make it visible.
2. Start the scirpt (Filters/Shapes) and make your settings.
3. Go to paths dialog, right click -> Merge Visible Paths
4. Stroke the Path with default options

Mask for Prints

Every paper size has a different shape, and none probably match the shape of the images produced by your digital camera. This little utility will create a layer showing which parts of an image will fit on the paper when printed. A wide selection of print sizes are included. Using it will help you layout your image so that important pieces aren't cut off by the printer/lab.

This script-fu was developed under Gimp-2.0 and Gimp-2.4
