Scripts that work in GIMP-2.8+




Tested on the GIMP-2.8.10 Further details are below...


As the GIMP advances its codebase, many scripts become deprecated and/or no longer work. They pop up errors or do not run at all -- their code needs to be updated to keep up with the GIMP. Since I "need" the plug-ins, I often update the scripts to keep them working.

Below the screenshot are the ReadMe and the Downloads

Pages dedicated to individual scripts (with screenshots and direct download) are available in Script Information Section

Here's some history of and progress on this project.
And of course I am more than willing to take a peek at other's work...
So far I've gotten help and code contributions from:

About:
------------------------
GIMP-2.8 scripts is a fixed/hacked collection of scripts for
use in the new GIMP. Most were originally created for GIMP-2.4,
but things continue to evolve and break scripts... so on I go.

If a script I wrote or played with gives me errors in use, I
get them running and include them in the scripts package.
I am not the original author for most of these scripts, but
I believe they all let you redistribute (GPL-like).

So use them, pass them around or make them better.
It's all good.

Enjoy.

Project History


I started doing this just after the release of GIMP-2.4 and I think I keep pace pretty well, sort of out of necessity because I use the GIMP and many of the scripts every day. (I do wpclipart.com)

I run the latest GIMP on Absolute Linux. I occasionally check the scripts on Windows -- but I really rely upon feedback from Windows users if anything is amiss. So do not hesitate to email me at psherman2001@gmail.com if you spot an error or have some suggestion.

The gimpfx-foundry project has built on my first package, made improvements to some and added others . . .  but I was put off a bit by their naming convention, the use of a separate menu item for the scripts, and the fact that they emailed me about their project, asking if I wanted to help out, several weeks after I made updated scripts available on this site. Granted, they did a lot of work on their own, too, but I felt a little miffed. Perhaps unjustly...

In my free time I have made some batch scripts in Python which I will soon make available separately, and I have also been asked to impliment a preview for some scripts. I'm hacking this out and have one posted on this site -- but it is written in Python and I am not sure how happy with the functionality folks who have tried it have been -- any feedback would be appreciated. For the regular SCRIPT-FUs (non-Python), I do not believe a preview window is possible.
