A few cool plugins for The GIMP (and how to add them)

Filed under
GIMP

One of the many nicer aspects of the GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Project) is that, like Photoshop, you can extend it’s usability by adding plug-ins and scripts. These plug-ins are quite numerous (and can be found on the GIMP Plug-in Registry). Not only can you find plug-ins, you can also find perl, script-fu, and python scripts for The GIMP. These plugins (and scripts) range from the general to the very specific. In this article I am going to highlight a few of these plugins as well as show you how to install them. NOTE: These plugins do work with GIMP for both Windows and Mac.

Which version?

The version of The GIMP you are using will matter. If you open up GIMP click on the Help menu and select About. A new window will open informing you which version you are using. I am running 2.6.8. If you can, update your version to the latest so this article will make better sense (and you’re not having to convert from the old style of 2.4.)

Fortunately you won’t have to do anything extra with GIMP

    Organizations with high rates of code deployments spend half as much time fixing security issues as organizations without such frequent code updates, according to a newly released study.
