Path Waves with Live Preview

(MrQ Path Waves by Ofn with Live

Author: MareroQ
based on code Ofnuts and Tin Tran

This is a Live Preview overlay of the path-waves-0.2 plugin by Ofnuts (plugin must be installed - is in the attachment).
Renders a wave along the BOTTOM path.

Without closing the plugin, you can also "manually" (when Preview = No):

- change the visibility of paths,
- modify the bottom path (make corrections), 
- drag any track to the bottom track.

In menu: Filters ➤ Path ➤ Path Waves LP... 





Added option: "Visibility": ["No Change", "Only TOP", "Only BOTTOM", "TOP & BOTTOM", "All Visible", "All Invisible"]






added code by David Madsen: changed update policy of sliders to DISCONTINUOUS (this prevents the plugin from updating while moving the sliders).

String Art Live Preview

 (String Art

Author: Tin Tran [aka: Tin, Tim, Trandoductin]

In menu: Filters ➤ Path ➤ String Art LP...

Discussion and examples on GimpChat

This plugin works on your existing TOP path with Live Preview (directly on the canvas).
It will then divide this path into equal-distance sections based on the path length to obtain points.
And then uses the entered string pattern to move forward/backward at points such as string weaving or string art.
The result is a path, so you'll have to stroke it or do anything else to decorate your string art.

FreePaint 2023 by Diego


Author: Diego

Unlike its conceptual predecessor (Free Painting, since 2020), it has no prerequisites (no subsidiary filters, no pattern sets).

It has been developed using exclusively the functionalities of Gimp+Gmic.

It manipulates the source image in two sections of processes:

- the first one leads to create what I called the BASIC OUTCOME

- the second one applies optional embellishments to finalize the outcome

The basic section has four steps:

- the choice of the "painting" tool

- the choise of the brush "stroking" tool

- the choice of the "contours" accentuation tool

- the choice of the "posterizing" tool

The second section has also four steps:

- the choice of the percent of the original image to restore

- the choice of a final pattern generating tool

- the choice of the percent of abstract color application

- the choice of the final look generated by various possible filters

The user has the possibility to test the combination of choices for:

- better meet her/his taste 

- be more suitable for the specific image (and image type: people, nature, constructions,...)

First time it could take a lot of time, but at end every one will have a sort of "presets" to use.

We include a simple, partial, incomplete suggestion (FP2023preset).
