    Post Gimp Script: Grid of Guides

    One of the things that bugs me about Gimp is that if you change the grid size you have to restart gimp for the change to happen. This is a pain when working on a dungeon map where I like to snap to grids for convenience sake.

    I found a handy script at the Gimp plugin registry to create a grid of guides. The original script allowed you to specify how many guidelines you wanted in the X and Y direction. I posted a modification to allow an option to specify the pixel spacing instead of the number of lines.

    I am attaching the modified script here as a convenience.

    Here is the GUI (you access it from Image>Guides>Grid):
    Gimp Script: Grid of Guides-gridguides.png

    And a the resulting guides:
    Gimp Script: Grid of Guides-gridguides1.png

    I find this much faster to use than setting the grid.

    (Edit: and to remove then use Image>Guides>Remove all Guides)

    Default

    I have found that there are two places to change the settings for the grid in GIMP:

    1. Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Default Grid. These settings specify the grid which will be used for all future new projects in GIMP. These settings will not change the current image's grid.

    2. Go to Image -> Configure Grid. These settings specify the settings for the grid of the current project. Change these settings and you will see the grid change instantly.
