Okay as you know the Gimp Version 2.6(2.6.8) that is currently out doesn't have Layer Styles like Photoshop or the older versions of Gimp which disappointed me because I wanted to try to make a Lightsaber
using the Inner and Outer Glow Effects, so I searched here on dA to find this [link]
Which doesn't work at all, a software fraud! Then I search on Gimp's website and find this [link]
Which worked great and easy to install!!!!! Which is what I am providing here of you Gimp users.
This is a series of scripts that implement various layer effects:
Bevel and Emboss
StrokeHow to install (Script-Fu version):1.
Click Download. A pop-up menu should appear. Choose Save File. If your using Mozilla Firefox, it will be Saved in your Download Folder, find it and move it to your Desktop, Then Extract it like normally to the Desktop or use WinRAR to unzip and extract to the Desktop.2.
Save(move from desktop) the file "layerfx.scm" in your scripts folder. If you're not sure where your scripts folder is, you can check by opening GIMP and going to Start Button-> Computer-> C Drive-> Program Files or Program Files (x86) -> GIMP- 2.0 -> share -> gimp -> 2.0 -> Scripts. If more than one folder is shown, then any one of them will work. (I just saved it with the other .scm files.)3.
Once you have saved the file in your scripts folder, if you are already running GIMP, either click then Script-Fu in the Toolbar at the top and then hit Refresh Scripts, or just close and reopen GIMP.4.
If you have done this correctly, the scripts will appear in the menu under Script-Fu ->Layer Effects. If this menu is not there, try clicking <Toolbox>/Xtns/Script-Fu/Refresh Scripts. If it's still not there, make sure the file is in your scripts folder and that the filename ends with ".scm", not ".txt" or ".scm.txt" or something. This should be what you are seeing when you have the Layer Effects: [link]
Tell me if you have any problems getting it to load I will be happy to help and don't be an ass and say This is a false postive!
Because it worked fine for me, and I know a lot about Computers so don't complain and accuse. Ask for help and be nice please or I won't help you at all.
