gimp plugin registry

GIMP Plugin Registry is a collection of GIMP plugins which includes GIMP FX Foundry and many other useful plugins.

With a bit of a delay (sorry!), I've updated the GIMP Plugin Registry package available in the main WebUpd8 PPA with the latest version from Debian unstable.

The new version brings a new plugin: GIMP Resynthesizer (content aware fill), a plugin which, given a sample of texture, can create more of that texture. It can be used for removing objects from images, creating themed images and more.

There are also 8 updated plugins: add-filmgrain, contactsheet, elsamuko (which consists of 23 cool effects, including: color tint, sunny landscape, movie 300, photochrom, vintage look, che guevarra, obama hope, antique photo border, technicolor 2 & 3 and more), ez-perspective, focusblur, layerfx, openraster and safe-for-web.

Install GIMP Plugin Registry in Ubuntu

If you're using the GIMP 2.8 PPA in Ubuntu 12.04, you'll find the latest GIMP Plugin Registry available in that PPA so all you have to do is search for it in Ubuntu Software Center / Synaptic for it.

Older Ubuntu version (11.10, 11.04, 10.10 and 10.04) users or Ubuntu 12.04 users who haven't added the GIMP 2.8 PPA can install the latest GIMP Plugin Registry by adding the main WebUpd8 PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry

(there aren't any conflicts if you add both the main WebUpd8 PPA and the GIMP 2.8 PPA: GIMP Plugin Registry from the GIMP 2.8 PPA will be installed if this PPA is enabled and not the version in our PPA)
