Layer Styles for Gimp 2.6.8 by Theo-Kyp-Serenno Layer Styles for Gimp 2.6.8 by Theo-Kyp-Serenno
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:

:bulletblack: Drop Shadow
:bulletblack: Inner Shadow
:bulletblack: Outer Glow
:bulletblack: Inner Glow
:bulletblack: Bevel and Emboss
:bulletblack: Satin
:bulletblack: Color Overlay
:bulletblack: Gradient Overlay
:bulletblack: Pattern Overlay
:bulletblack: Stroke

How 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.

Hey, I've got GIMP2.8 and this script isn't working for me. I go to Script Fu, then to your script, I see all the options, but they're all shown in grey, so I cannot use them. Is there anything I'm doing wrong or is this script not compatible with the newest version of GIMP?

Oh my God! I was also looking for the inner and outer glow in GIMP, but yes, my GIMP doesn't have any of these. :( But I'll try this one if it will work for me. =D

to make lightsabers? i can teach you how to make lightsabers without the layer style i learned it after i did this layer style plug in lol

Ah, no. :giggle: I would like to use outer glow for the fonts, because most of the time, on my GIMP, I can only use 'drop shadows'. All the layer effects you mentioned here are the ones I was looking for, for a long time. :happycry:

I can do that too for fonts without the layer style as well lol. I seem to play around with Gimp so much I learned I don't really need the layer style. :) But your welcome.

which link? there are 3 of them and i just checked them by click on each one in firefox. they work fine. one is to the website to where the gimp plugins can be found, the other is a incomplete layer style by another DA user, and the last one is a link to a screenshot I took. all 3 work. now if your talking about the download button that should work as well cause i see the download status increase everyday. so must be your browser your making something up. :|

The link works now.
I was using the GIMP later after leaving this comment and I noticed other links to GIMP.org didn't work either, so I'm guessing the site was down for a while.

I don't like the attitude of your comment, personally.

I was so angry 'cause Gimp doesn't have all the things Photoshop does, but I'm a bit happier now XD

I still love Photoshop the most, but at work I have to use Gimp.. now it will be less sad ;P

Got this when trying to do Pattern Overlay:

"Error while executing script-fu-layerfx-pattern-overlay:

Error: Procedure execution of gimp-context-set-pattern failed on invalid input arguments: Procedure 'gimp-context-set-pattern' has been called with value '' for argument 'name' (#1, type gchararray). This value is out of range. "

i see well i can only think of few things that can be your problem, your probably got a flavor of linux that is read only that can run off of a flashdrive, and linux is generaly is better then it used too but it still isn't as user friendly, and the last thing is you may have it installed wrong, but i think yours linux, i asked my boss that i work with, im a computer technian and support and he says the same thing i said, and oh you have to deal with all the installions too.
