Thread: All in all, it's just another brick in the wall [GIMP script]

  1. #1

    Info All in all, it's just another brick in the wall [GIMP script]

    I've posted this script on the GIMP registry site, and it seems to have gone over well there. I made quite a few changes to the script thanks to some wonderful recommendations there, so I'll post it here as well.

    It's a script that will create a brick wall of just about any size. The bricks and mortar can be any color you want. The bricks can be any height and width, and the layer mode can be set to anything. Normal (brickwall) and Overlay (goldwall) produced the two examples in this post. The mortar can be beveled or not. It's a fairly powerful script, but I'm always willing to make some additions.

    One person had it freeze up on them one of the gimp-selection-none commands in the script, but I have not been able to replicate that error. Extra bonus points to someone who can, and help me track down why.

    The script itself will show up under Filters/SambrookJM, but this can be changed by editing the last line in the script to place it wherever you want it to go in your menu hierarchy. Enjoy!

    Very nice, I'll have to add this one. Thanks for the post and making of the script! Repworthy imo

    Interesting thought on grunging up the edges. Maybe an option for an elliptical selection to make it more stony like? Or distressing the selection of each brick? Hmmm...I may have to muck around with this.

    On another note, how do I submit a bug report to the GIMP folks? There's a problem with the script because some versions of Linux Gimp don't like any (rand X) command, where X is something larger than 3000000000. It took a while to find this out, but this was the problem that several folks over at GIMP Plugin Registry were having with this (and one of my other scripts as well.) The same (rand X) commands works on Windows...even 32-bit versions.
