    Thanks for the rep whacking

    What do I need to be able to compile gimp plugins (written in C) on WinXP? You mentioned MinGW/MSYS. Anything else?

    Superb work. Thanks very much. I will put it all together in a zip file with a readme and release it to the GIMP plugin registry, and also announce it in the Mapping Elements forum of this web site.

    Here's a preview (linear taper for now):

    Need to add a dialog window with taper options.

    OK thanks. Problem is turning out much more difficult than I first thought.

    Sorry to keep annoying you, but I had an idea for making a better-looking tapered stroke. No offence intended, but your tapered path script produces aliasing effects which can be ugly depending on the brush sizes chosen. Instead of using brushes of different sizes like you have in your script, my idea is to create the outline of the tapered path (by transforming the original path), convert it to a selection, and then fill with foreground color. I think this may avoid ugly aliasing effects, but I'm not sure; only way to be sure is to try it out.

    So here I am spamming you and criticising your work (sorry, sorry), but would you have a problem if I created and released such a plugin? I was thinking of using the name "Stroke Path with Taper", so it wouldn't be too easily confused with your "Tapered Stroke Path". I don't want to steal your thunder, so to speak, so let me know what you think.

    Alright I'm done, I hope there's no major bugs: Download.

    I've read that it's a pain to compile GIMP plugins on Windows, but if you can do it that would be great.

    Meanwhile, I've decided to add an option to allow users to preserve sharp corners (e.g. which allows them to draw things like crescent moons). So I'm still working on the dialog for that.

    Once I'm finished I'll send you a link to my source code so you can try to compile it. Then I'll release the plugin to an unsuspecting public.

    I fixed the undo problem. For some reason I can't add the plugin to <Vectors> (i.e. where you put your Fractalize Path script), so I put it in <Image>/Edit, same place as your Tapered Stroke script. Do you know of anyone who can compile these plugins on Windows? I'm pretty much ready to release but I'll wait if someone wants to compile for Windows.

    Here's a crazy image I created in a couple of minutes with my plugin:

    I did it! Here is a screenshot:

    The only thing I can't get working is undo. Don't know why, since I call the gimp_image_undo_group_start() and gimp_image_undo_group_end() functions.

    I use Linux. I suspect I'll have to rely on someone to compile a Windows executable.
