Plug-Ins
#1
I have never really gotten the hang of adding plug-ins to GIMP, and now that I'm up to Version 2.10.14, I find myself at a loss finding repositories of existing plug-ins to add, as usual.

I would especially like to add a bevel plug-in to create to create the ability in the layers palette to do bevels like PS has had for ages; if not that, a plug-in to add a filter to do the same.

Is this possible?

Thanks - Bill Smile

There has been change from 2.10.12 to 2.10.14. The change affects bump maps and bevels.

You can get gt-bevel working if you follow this:

Other bevel plug-ins (eg layer effects) also work again if you follow the above.

Very few repositories of scripts and plugins around now. The old ones you might find referenced (plugin-registry..etc) are gone and even then contain largely old/broken files. So you will have to scavenge around Gimp sites to find any. Best way is join a forum and ask. There is a tenuous plan by Gimp developers to start a collection.

Do not expect many plugins to come with a installer. One that does is the gmic plugin for Gimp http://www.gmic.eu When installed and updated comes with 520 filters of all sorts.  Otherwise, very much hands on. Get (download)  a script-fu something.scm  and that goes in C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\scripts and a plugin something.exe or something.py in C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins

Gimp does come with a bevel script Filters -> Decor -> Bevel Unfortunately as Blighty points out the Gimp 2.10.14 bumpmap breaks it Wink see: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/4204 You can apply the bumpmap yourself.

I will attach an old script that I sometimes use, works with a selection, hence when installed Filters -> Distorts -> SelectionBevel  Not wonderful, but does not need a bumpmap.  Unzip, put in your plug-ins folder.
