Glow Effect script for GIMP

Post#1 by tim » 19 May 2017, 23:47


This glow effect is pretty cool too: http://www.gimpusers.com/tutorials/glowing-text
Here's the script for it.
glow.zip #
zipped .py file (unzip, put in your GIMP /plug-ins/ folder)
(1.53 KiB) Downloaded 358 times
Script Menu Location: Python-Fu/Glow

Instructions:
1) Have a layer of your text/shape with transparency selected/active.
2) Must be top most layer.
3) Run script and let the magic happen.
4) You'll get the default blue glow, if you wish to change color of glow, just right click a layer and select "New from Visible" and Colors/Colorize that layer to your liking.

Great possibilities for this script also, Tin. Will have fun with this one as I usually have trouble getting good glow effects. Thank you!

Cool idea with the hot air balloon.
Didn't think of using it on images.

Thanks, but I don't know why it doesn't work with me. Script python, I copy the file in a folder plug-ins
in this path:/home/username/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins

If you restart GIMP? python scripts needs to GIMP to be restarted.
Also if you're *nix you have to make the .py executable.
