Gimp script: Stitch layers

Stitch layers… is a script for gimp written in python that helps merge several images into one, there are frequent cases of large images we have to scan in various files or multiple photos that we want to join in a panorama. With this script we just have to indicate two common points in each image and he rotate and translate the image we choose as secondary to those two match points.

Example usage

    Suena muy bien! En Mac, lo instalo en carpeta de scripts-fu?

    Soy un profesor de arte de la escuela primaria. Mis estudiantes crearon dibujos de crayón de las casas utilizando una plantilla. La línea del horizonte y los caminos alineados. He manualmente “cosido” el primero @ 20Masters% 202014% 20Gallery/kindergarten_gallery.html.

    Hay 18 a 22 estudiantes en cada clase. ¿Este script “puntada” de forma automática?

    Sounds great! On Mac, do I install it in scripts-fu folder?

    I am an elementary school art teacher. My students created crayon drawings of houses using a template. The horizon line and roads line up. I have manually “stiched’ the first one @

    There are 18-22 students in each class. Will this script “stitch” them automatically?


    • Hi, i can’t test the plugin on mac but in this page you can find more info on installing on mac:, i hope that info be useful for you. The plugin is useful for joining a image scanned in many parts or a panorama image, in your case if you scan every drawing in the same way really dont need to create the paths that identifies coincident points in both images, in your case for join many images at the same time you can try using irfanview, a freeware image viewer, here a video tutorial of how works

      • On mac you install the same way as on windows/linux:
        You have a folder for gimp stuff. Mostly “gimp-2.8”
        And inside is “plugins”, “scripts”, “themes”, and everyting else.

        If i recall correctly python scripts are treated as plugins by Gimp, therefore. This one goes under “plugins” directory.
