Glass or Bevel

Creates a pretty simple (yet cool) smooth glass or bevel effect. Can work with alpha/mask contour as well as selection. Have fun!

P.S.: Sorry for the awkward plugin name. Couldn't make up anything better.


v1.03: The "Gloss Contrast" parameter added
v1.02: Smoothness = 0 was not possible
v1.01: Fixed working with mask contours
v1.0: Initial release

Insane Bump

This is a normal map generator from a single image, originally created by omaremad. Load a single layer picture, then choose filters/map/insanebump..., tweak the details, then hit OK. The normal/height/ambiend/specular maps for the picture will be created within the folder where the original picture resides.

The script produces different files within the original image's directory:
the _n is the normal map,
the _s is the specular,
the _d is the diffusion (just the color)
the _a is the ambiend occlusion
the _h is the displacement (or height map)

Make Interlaced 3D

Produces an interlaced (interleave) picture for viewing on polarized-mask 3D monitors. Supports horizontal and vertical interlacing, depth correction offset, field order, anaglyph and side-by-side (cross-eyed) source conversion. The "Depth correction offset" feature (sometimes called "parallax") makes the picture look deep beyond the screen surface.

Swap and Scale 3D images

A script to scale and swap left and right stereo images.

Convert any photo into 3D

Paint a color coded third dimensional depth map over any photo and translate it to a stereo image in either parallel or cross-eye format. The tutorial can be found at the web site below.

Parallel view

Cross-Eye view

Ebook Plugins


This is a set of two plug-ins: one creates a new template file, the other combines that template to create a '3D view' of your ebook cover.

These plug-ins require Python! If you have the menu item 'Filters->Python-Fu->Console' then you are ready to install these. If not - search the forums or the web on how to add Python support to your version of GIMP.

3-D Rotation Script

This script will rotate an existing image about the X, Y and Z axes. It will also include a magnification factor so you can scale your image while rotating.

The inputs are the angles to rotate the image around the X, Y, and Z axes. Some values (usually high X and Y values) will result in a very distorted picture, regardless of what other inputs you have. If you get one of those, just undo and try again. That's just the way math works, folks!


This package includes code to import/export the texgz image format
into Gimp (via a plugin) or other apps. The texgz format is specifically
designed to work well with OpenGL ES and uses zlib for lossless
compression. The following formats are supported by texgz:

RGBA-8888, RGB-888, BGRA-8888, RGB-565, RGBA-4444, RGBA-5551

The package is available from github at:


I don't like the look of the existing beveling scripts so I wrote one up. It iterates shrinking selections to generate a bump map. It will use (in preferred order) the current selection, the alpha of the active layer, or the whole layer for the shape. The result is generated as a new layer set to hard light blend mode. It has:
- Inner and outer chisel/carve
- "Softness" parameter controls how hard/soft the heightmap bevel is
- "Effect Blur" parameter performs a post-bevel masked blur to make the chisel look more "puffy"
- Option to keep the bumpmap
