Thanks for all your replies
no worries I usually have the problem that I cant rep RobA cause I did it recently I just rate the threat then But way more important than repping me, is that you find the script useful I will post an update soon, I just didnt have time the last two days.
Thanks bryguy About the plug-ins. To add some words to what RobA said:
There 3 ways to do plug-ins/scripts for GIMP (or at least I know 3 ways).
- C code and compiling it afterwards.
If you know scheme its easy, as there are (as RobA said) alot of scripts in Scheme for GIMP so you can easily get into it.
If you know python it aint as easy as with scheme as you do not find that many scripts in python for GIMP and the documentation is rather... useless. Open the procedure/routine browser in the help menu (whatever its called in the english version) in GIMP, there you can find all GIMP specific script functions.
If you dont know scheme nor python I would suggest trying out python because if you ever wanna do some scripting outside GIMP chances that you can use python are much higher than for scheme. Atm scheme is better integrated in GIMP but I think this will change sooner or later. For GIMP 2.8. a better python support is allready planned.
Though if you know one script language it should be rather easy for you to learn another cause in the end they do all the same only the syntax is different. While I cant script in scheme cause I do not know its syntax I can read it pretty well. So ultimatly if I would wanna use scheme I would be able to learn it pretty fast.For the interested, here is roughly what is planned for GIMP 2.8, the next stable release:
* Merging Google Summer of Code 2008 projects to trunk, namely on-canvas text editing, tagging of GIMP resources and Python scripting enhancements.
* Continue integration of GEGL.
* And of course many other improvements...
I did not mention the C code at all, cause if you arent a C coder this wont be the way you wanna go, trust me
