  1. Thank you heijan for creating these. Thank you Gnu Tux for making them available to us here.

  2. That is an awesome plugin! It looks like a lot of work went into this and well worth the effort! Many thanks!!

  3. everytime i copy the beauty.exe into plug-ins there’s a popping message says “The program can’t start because libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll is missing from your comp.”

    • That dll is part of the GTK runtime library, which should have been installed along with GIMP. Have you searched your computer to see if your have libgdk-win32-2.0-0.d installed and in your path?

    Hi,

    I use Beautify, and thanks for it. The only trouble i have is with extra borders and textures. I can’t make them appear in Beautify, i keep having the same basic borders and textures instead. They are cool, but it is a bit limited.
    What i did is extract zip files, then i copied the extracted files into Gimp 2.8 directory. I did not extract them directly into Gimp 2.8 directory.

    • Make sure you copy the rip-border folder and texture-border folder to your hidden .gimp-2.8 folder, the same folder where your scripts and plug-ins folders are located, per the example in the above post.

  5. Thank you heijan for creating these. Thank you Gnu Tux for making them available to us here.

  6. […] You can Download Beautify from here at GimpScripts […]

  7. I can not seem to use this? I try to find it in the gimp program, but after downloaded I can not find it?

    • You will need to install the executables and support files in the correct locations, depending on your operating system and where you have GIMP installed. Once installed, it will appear under Filters/Beautify.

      Which OS are you using?

  8. I am using windows 7

    • You need to ensure you download the correct Windows version (32bit or 64bit). Then, extract the .exe files to GIMP’s plug-ins folder. The folder location varies, depending on how GIMP was initially installed.

      I recommend that you post this question to the Beautify Support Thread at GIMP Chat forums. You’ll find other Windows 7 users there who can better help you get this plug-in installed.
