Toggles visibility of all layers above active layer Script for GIMP

Post#1 by trandoductin » 06 Oct 2016, 21:40


When working with animations (.gif files).
We have many layers opened at the same time. You can quickly turn on/off visibility of all layers by Shift-clicking (on Windows).
But in situations where you have a .gif where each layer is a frame that is the
combined result of that layer and all layers below it,
to quickly view what that frame looks like, you have to manually turn off visibility of all layers above it.
This is too much pain to do. So that's why this script is here.
It does exactly what the title says: "Toggles visibility of all layers above active layer".

Using this script you can do things like:
Turn off visibility of all layers below the active/selected layer (by Shift-clicking the active layer's visibility [the eye icon] until all layers are invisible, then run script)
Turn off visibility of all layers above the active layer/selected layer (by Shift-clicking the active layer's visibility until all layers are visible, then run script).

Tin, this also helpful when you are working on an image using stroke visable paths, especially if there is more than one time that is done to complete the image.
