A Call python file for Gimp


Recommended Posts

This file calls Paint Dot Net from Gimp.So you can then edit any part of the image you want and Gimp exports it back to Gimp as the top layer.

Written by Rob A for XnView call for PS filters (8bf), and rewritten to call Paint Dot Net by me.

More info here -

#!/usr/bin/env python

'''
Paint.NETShell.py
Call Paint.Net to allow use of Paint.Nets filters. Windows Only.

Author:
Rob Antonishen - Rod D changed to call Paint Dot Net

Version:
0.3 Fixed to work with filters that change alpha

this script is modelled after the mm extern LabCurves trace plugin

main()

Open the code in your text editor - save it as Paint.NETShell.py - place it in your Plug-ins folder in the Gimp program directory or your user docs folder "Plug-ins"

You will find the filter in Filters/Call/Paint Dot Net

Simply open an image in Gimp or create one

Go to Filters/Call/Paint Dot Net

Run the filter

You have a few options to choose in the pop up dialog - edit layer or new from layer

Gimp will then open Paint dot Net and export the file to it

Run your filters - click to close Paint dot Net - you will be asked to save the temp image - select yes

Gimp will close paint dot net, and export the file back into Gimp as the top layer or edited layer.

Enjoy

If you need further explanation of the filter or editing of the script PM me. boltbait.smile.png

In a forum for Paint.Net users, posting a GIMP plugin is.....unusual. Shouldn't this be posted in a GIMP forum?
