Diamond Grid

This is yet another in a series of "grid" scripts. I tried to shoe-horn this one into the circular grid script (found here:, but there were too many other variables that were specific to the diamonds. It also gave me a chance to do a bit of code clean-up.

Hex and Triangle grids

This script will construct either a hexagonal or triangular grid. It's a kind-of follow-up script to the circular grid one I made a bit earlier. (If you wanted that one instead, look here:

You choose the size of the image, and the length of side of the shape. The shapes can be filled with up to six different colors, a white background, transparent, or completely random colors. There is also an option to set up the grid so that it will tile seamlessly. I've attached a picture showing a hexagonal tiling grid generated with this script.

Circular Grids

This script will make a grid of circles. You input the diameter of the circles, the number of circles in the X and Y directions, the space between the edges of the circles, and if you want the circles in a rectangular or a hexagonal grid. The two attached images show pictures of the default rectangular and hexagonal grid created by this script. The circles and background can be any colors. This script could be useful for selection masks, making pictures of bubble wrap, or lots of other things that I haven't thought of!

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 is an attempt to automate making a galaxy via GIMP. I'd seen a few excellent tutorials, but none that could be easily automated. One of the resulting pictures is attached to this page.

The galaxy can have any number of arms, and they can have varying degrees of curvature. Very high degrees of curvature will result in an elliptical galaxy rather than a spiral. Stars can be added, and the galaxy can be set to have any perspective or color.

Brick Wall

Since the previous script is for an isometric wall, the obvious choice for the next script would be one to automatically generate a wall. I'd written one previously, but this seems as good a time as any to post it!

Scite extended Lisp/Gimp-Scheme property file

Helps with the viewing and editing of gimp scripts. The command section should be modified to accommodate your flavor of scheme.

--> Back up or rename the original
--> Save this file as
--> Then place this file in the Scite/Scintilla directory.

Have fun
