this time, tiny-fu distort selection was used and i must say, tiny-fu feels "zippier" than script-fu. http://carol.gimp.org/gimp/distorted-selection-mask.xcf, it is still in rgb. experts agree, indexed images are simply too complicated for the average user to be expected to work with. two paths have been included and i strongly suggest that you consider using the paths for your template. they work really nicely -- even gimps simple little SVG files. > Hope that was not too much of a puzzle - its late and my english does > certainly not improve after 0:00am > wait until you count the years in which your english does not improve. i miss counting the hours.... carol _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
