Transpose Tileset

Suppose the current layer has a tile-based image (e.g. the tileset for a game). This script will transpose all tiles, so that the tile at the position (1,0) will end at (0,1).

Very useful if you have your sprite sheet as a tall strip of frames (one on top of the other), but you need it as a horizontal strip (with frames side-by-side, as required by Game Maker). With this plugin, you can transpose the frames to convert from one format to another.

Extrude from Path

Extrudes a 3D image from the active path, with a choice of color or gradient for the extrusion and color for the moment for the end cap. There are also settings for a drop-shadow and extrusion direction. The brush choice and brush-size settings are not applicable to any pre 2-8-14 Gimps (due to software bug)

Note! FreeType is an excellent plugin for creating paths from text or dingbats and is available here at GimpChat
