    Glad you go it working - I say your initial post and didn't get a chance to reply before you solved it!

    Hey Derio, this is a big help. Thanks!
    As I am new to GIMP it took me a while to figure this out, so I thought it would be helpful for others to know how to load the script. After some research I found this link:

    http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/install-script-fu.html

    Next, I had to figure out where the script folder is located and then simply copy the script into the folder. I did that by going edit/preferences and then scroll down to "folders" and select "script". From there it displays the folder directory. In my case it was the following:

    C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts

    PS: using XP and Gimp 2.6

    Thanks again,
    Newbie Mike

    Hi Mike!

    I'd suggest you not put use scripts in the installation directory, as they will get overwritten if you ever have to reinstall gimp.

    There should be a second script directory (along with directories for patters, gradients, etc.) under XP located at:

    C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.gimp-2.6\scripts

    (where <username> is your login/account name without the angled brackets.)

    This is designed so multiple users can have different resources available, as well as when upgrading (say to gimp 2. they will get copied to a .gimp-2.8 directory structure without erasing the stuff in .gimp-2.6

    Thanks, Rob! Huge help, as usual!


    But, I've got an issue. Say I have a canvas at 8.5"x11" at 300 dpi. That's 2550x3300 px. If I made my hexes 300 px side-to-side, it doesn't come out to 8.5x11 hexes.

    I'm trying to figure out how best to get a perfect fit of hexes on a sheet of paper...

    Not sure what you mean, but it is probably because you need to use the maths.

    If you pick 300 side to side, your side to side direction should be a multiple of 300, so the 3330 side will have exactly 11 hexes. The other direction (point to point to point) will not be - it works out to 346.41px, so you will only have 7(.361) hexes in the 2550 direction. The script makes mathematically correct hexes.

    While this script is very much excellent - am I wondering why it often produces stupid-sized files ? (I mean like, gig-sized files from 640x640 files)

    While the placement process may be intensive, the end result is basically a bunch of lines - what am I not understanding/doing wrong ?
