Thank you for responding.
> you could write a Script-Fu to do that.
Writing scripts looks kind of hard, as I'm not a programmer or coder by
nature. But I'm game to try. So I read some of the pages you suggested,
and also looked up a little info on the web.
I've worked out some of the commands I think I need from the "Procedure
Browser", and then I looked at some other script files already installed
on my machine to try and get some sense of the syntax. My first draft of
the script is at the end of this message.
I'm confused on two points.
One is that the names of the procedures in the "Procedure Browser" don't
seem to follow the same format as they do in the scripts in my scripts
directory. In the scripts directory, they use dashes, "-" in their
names, like "gimp-path-to-selection". But in the "Procedure Browser",
they all use underscores, "_", like "gimp_path_to_selection". What
should I be using?
The other is that the parameters often list as their first option to
specify the image. For example, "gimp_path_to_selection", has this at
the top of its list of parameters:
image IMAGE the image
Since I don't intend to be using this script at the command line, and
will be using it on an image that I will have open in the GIMP GUI, do I
need to specify this? Or do I need to use some kind of variable that
specifies the currently active image?
Here is my first draft. If someone could help me make the syntax
correct, then I think I could use it as a model for continuing to create
my own scripts.
; Create anti-aliased colour flats from a path.
; Convert the path to a selection.
; Sharpen the selection to ensure it is not anti-aliased.
; Fill the selected area with the current foreground colour.
(gimp_edit_fill (GIMP_FOREGROUND_FILL (0)))
; Deselect the currently selected area.
; Remove the path.
Thank you for any assistance or advice.
