Thanks for this python plugin. I have recently gotten into the GIMP and really enjoy working with it. I'm on windows and have found so far that Paint.NET works the best for a PS plugin carrier, just for the fact that it supports .png transparency. I found a lot of the other programs listed including XNView don't handle the transparency so the filters I use don't work correctly. I bought an Eye Candy Bundle a long time ago and under Paint.NET and this plugin the filters work flawlessly with non-square transparency.

I created a derivative that just calls Paint.NET using your original 0.3 version code. I realize that you made version that allows the program to be selected but I don't need all the others if Paint.NET works :)

Anyways, wanted to sign up for the forums and say thanks, Rob.

Paint.Net can run Adobes 8bf filters?

Contrary to the opinion that the Gimp can not create a good svg - example-created in the GIMP [2 - gimp-temp-24791 (copyright Rod).svg ] using plugin-trace.py
http://registry.gimp.org/node/21349 (for me, unfortunately only in Ubuntu - but apparently for some it also works in XP?)
So the question: "Inkscape is SVG - not designed for raster images, so not sure what you are asking for. Do not know about open office, as I do not use it." I ask again (since it can indirectly) so as to create the file (as XnviwShell) to export (svg) directly into Inkscape?

I guess the answer is no.

You used a python script to call autotrace to create the SVG file. Gimp can not create such a file on its own, only export paths as a svg file. That is completely different than what this plugin does, so really needs something written differently (which is what the plugin you linked to plugin-trace.py does... exports the image as a raster image png or bmp I'd guess, then calls autotrace to generate the svg. I'm guessing that could be modified to launch inkscape and load the svg file created by autotrace.

The other option is to work backwards from inkscape.

Quote:
You might have interest in a little script I wrote for gimp to implement "file linked layers". It was requested on the gimp mailing list here and my response is here that explains how it works.

I use it by saving a png from inkscape, then loading it as a file linked layer into Gimp. Then any time I change it in inkscape and re-save the png, you can use the "reload" command to pull the layer back into Gimp. Saves a bit of time.

Inkscape does allow bitmap mixing with vector, but not really good for bitmap editing itself. I remember Microsoft was working on a product, I believe, called Acryllic that would have been a true raster/vector editor, but believe that project died. I mentioned this before, but I do wish some genious would just combine Inkscape and GIMP into one program but don't think that will ever happen. :)

Hi all-

Attached is version 0.5 that now has a parameter to specify the type of raster file to export. Please note that this will use the gimp default settings for the filetype (i.e. you can't specify the jpeg compression level if you use "jpg"). (MSpaint is bmp and deep paint is a jpg as a test. I'd suggest using png whenever possible as it supports alpha/transparency...)

I've updated the syntax of the command people have reported and they are listed here:

  ["XNView", "\"C:\\Program Files\\XnView\\xnview.exe\"", "png"],
  ["MS Paint", "\"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\mspaint.exe\"", "bmp"],
  ["Deep Paint", "\"C:\\Program Files\\DeepPaint\\deeppaint.exe\"", "jpg"],
  ["Inkscape", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Inkscape\\inkscape.exe\"", "png"],
  ["PaintDOTNet", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Paint.NET\\PaintDotNet.exe\"", "png"],
  ["MyPaint", "\"C:\\Program Files\\MyPaint\\mypaint.exe\"", "png"],
  ["Photo Filter Factory", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Photo Filter Factory\\Photo Filter Factory.exe\"", "png"],
  ["Photo Pos Pro", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Photo Pos Pro\\Photo Pos Pro.exe\"", "png"],
  ["Java Image Editor", "\"C:\\JavaJars\\imageeditor.bat\"", "png"],
  ["Java Mosaic", "\"C:\\JavaJars\\mosaic.bat\"", "png"],
  ["Vector Magic", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Vector Magic\\vmde.exe\"", "png"],
  ["Photo Clinic", "\"C:\\MAGIX\\Photo_Clinic_45\\PhotoClinic.exe\"", "png"],


Just comment/uncomment/add any new ones and post the syntax used.
