  1. How to install this plugin? I download your follow-path 4 zip file, and put everything under the plug-in folder under .gimp, where my user files are. But I cannot find the selection from the menu.

    Thanks

    • Hi, once unzipped the files you must copy both on any folder listed in the plug-ins section of preferences (menu Files>Preferences>Folders>Plug-ins) or add a new folder in this section. Once this is done by clicking the right mouse button on the Paths tab select the Tools menu option that appears, is where you will find the script.
