Diego's Decor ParticlesThruSphereMap Plugin

 Author: Diego

Utilize ParticlesThruSphereMap Plugin To Create Ulead Simulations In GIMP



Images by Diego

This filter was born for the challenge of "simulating" Ulead Particles.

It is based on the Gimp plug-in Map Object.

The process creates as many layers as requested by the user.

Each layer is a Map to Sphere of a square section of the input drawable.

Size and position are both randomly defined.

To enrich each sphere a bit of plasma is applied. 

The user can ask to get the outcomes:

- in full colours

- with the spheres in colours over a source in gray

- in full gray

Diego's Drawing Style X

 Author: Diego

Create An Unique Drawing In GIMP Using Style X

The filter creates the drawing making use of G'MIC Iain & JPR plug-ins.
It's very simple and creates very delicate outcomes.
Which could be of interest for people who do not like excessively strong textures. 
Sometimes you have to enlarge the outcome to appreciate the texture (at least for my eyes).

Create An Unique Drawing In GIMP Using Style W

This filter creates the drawing making use of G'mic Afre plug-ins and Doodle.
Because the Doodle step is a bit slow, an information message is sent to the user asking to be patient...

- normal

Execution time is strictly correlated to the chosen finesse.
An example:

Fake Engraving

 Author: Rafferty River

Create An Unique Engraving Using The Fake Engraving Plugin

This plugin fakes an engraving effect by creating several layers with layer masks
based on different threshold values of the original image. The layers are filled 
with wave patterns with various thicknesses and some of them will be rotated
for a more realistic effect. At the end the engraving layers are merged together
and a white layer is added to increase visibility.

Inspired by the Photoshop tutorial found here.

Wave patterns are created in Inkscape found here.

Instructions:
-------------
1) Copy the plugin fake_engraving.py into your Gimp plugin directory and the wave pattern files (waves0.png, etc.) into your Gimp patterns directory.
2) Start Gimp and open an image of about 1000 pixels or more at 300dpi which has sufficient contrast.
3) Apply the script in the Python-Fu menu.
