Plug-in Tutorial
How do I create plug-ins? I can't find any tutorials more recent than 2011, and the ones I've found have links to nonexistent pages.
I found something, but I have a problem. After entering this command:

C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin>gimptool-2.0 --install "E:\Important\GIMP\Plug-ins\IntensityAdj.c"

I get this error, and I have no idea how to resolve it:

'pkg-config' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
No output from 'pkg-config --cflags gimpui-2.0'
Simple compiled plugins using that gimptool-2.0 command a lot easier in linux than Windows, even then, old code liable to produce errors.

As far as I know for Windows, you need a whole load of extras, a C compiler 'mingw' + a load of library files.

Not many members here who compile for Windows. My advice: Post again on where you might get a suitable answer. I would also include a link to that code IntensityAdj.c I have had a search and can not find that as a file.

Some not-too-old examples of questions from gimpchat and their problems.
You can write plugins in Python. Most of these are technically scripts, but if you use numpy you can write fairy powerful things.
