GIMP Plugin: Texturize

Published › December 2, 2011 // 0 Comments
Imagine that you have an image with a small sample of a texture, like a few strawberries (out of a plate full of them), a few square inches of grass (from a large grassy field), or a few dozens of your cat's hairs (your cat really has more than that). If you want to generate a larger texture with this small image, you could just copy-paste it, and put the copies (or "patches") one next to another, but that wouldn't produce a very good result,...

GIMP Plugin: Pandora

Published › December 2, 2011 // 0 Comments
Pandora simplifies the process of stitching together a sequence of panorama images. Load all the panorama pieces (in order) as layers inside an image (suggestion: make a new image then "Open as Layers" and select all the files). Then run Filters->Combine->Make Panorama. You still have to do the detailed matching by hand, but Pandora calculates the needed image size, moves all the layers to approximately the right position and creates...

GIMP Plugin:Tear-Off

Published › December 2, 2011 // 0 Comments
As a technical editor/writer, I found the need for a plugin to easily crop application screenshots with that somewhat jagged "torn-off" appearance. I found a way to manually obtain the effect I needed, and simply replicated the steps in a Python script, using the gimpfu module. The original plugin script puts a "Tear-off" menu item on the Image menu for all image windows only (that is, no menu option is available in the main GIMP Toolbox...

GIMP Plugin: Wavelet Decompose Script-Fu

Published › December 2, 2011 // 0 Comments
This is a Script-Fu script for losslessly decomposing an image into different detail scales. This should be useful for photo post processing (for instance reapairing skin in portraits). I first saw this function on the plugin "Wavelet Decompose" by marcor. (http://plugintop.com/gimp-plugin-wavelet-decompose/ - This is also a good description on how image manipulation can benefit from wavelet decompositing.) I believe the Script-Fu script...

GIMP Plugin: Wavelet Decompose

Published › December 2, 2011 // 0 Comments
This plugin losslessly decomposes a layer of an image into layers of wavelet scales. This means that you can edit the image on different detail scales (frequencies). The trivial recomposition of the image can be done by GIMP's layer modes so you can see the results of your modifications instantly. Among the applications are retouching, noise reduction, and enhancing global contrast. Wavelet Scales An image can be transformed into a set of...

GIMP Plugin: Backup Working

Published › December 2, 2011 // 0 Comments
This is a simple script I wrote to help make backups when working on a large image. There are no parameters. It will save a backup copy of your active image as [imagename]-YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM.xcfgz in the same directory as your active image. If the active image has never been saved, it will pop-up a message stating "The file must be saved before a backup can be made." It can be easily accessed with Alt-F, B Download...
