GIMP-related code, here's the place to
- Adaptive Contrast
- The basic "Stretch Contrast" operation takes in the whole image
at once, and if there is a white pixel anywhere in the image and a
black pixel anywhere in the image, it figures the contrast is
already as good as can be. But Adaptive Contrast Enhancement works
to increase the contrast locally, and brings out details that most
wide-sweeping contrast-enhancements pass over.
- The problem: When you look closely, diagonal lines in your
image look blocky, with "staircase" edges. The solution to this
problem (other than going out and buying a video system that
doesn't use square pixels) is to blur the colors along the
stair-steps a little, to soften the jagged edges. This is done
without blurring any straight edges.
- Draws mazes. Two styles available, and can optionally draw
tileable mazes for use as wallpaper.
- As if you were looking at your image through a lens. The shape
of the lens is made from a greyscale heightmap, and you can change
the material to be glass, water, or anything else.
These are things that I hacked on at one time or another and
then left in a pile in the corner. I'm not sure which ones remain
useful or functional.
- I convinced Adam Moss's Superzoom plug-in (from
GIMP 0.54) to go in v1.x. A snapshot of
the source code is here.

you make a mess with lost images while writing scripts, etc.
- filename.scm is a
little script that will change an image's filename without saving
it, so you can rename "Untitled 22" to "Bumpmap_of_Freds_Face" or
