A basic Gimp script-fu

I’ve just been playing with Gimp, and getting to grips with the scripting system.

I’m sharing a very basic script – it only does two simple tasks:

  • Sets the image to Grayscale
  • Rotates 90 degrees counter-clockwise

It doesn’t need any extra parameters, so I thought I’d share it as a very simple example that you can adapt to your needs!

    "script-fu-test-script"                     ;func name
    "Test Script"                               ;menu label
    "Test script that does a few simple tasks"  ;description

        ; Actual work here
        ; Convert to grayscale
        (gimp-image-convert-grayscale image)
        ;Rotate 90 CCW
        (gimp-image-rotate image ROTATE-270)
        ; Finishing Off
        (gimp-image-undo-group-end image)
