Hi Helen -
If you are on widnows, the first task is to get python scripting enabled. The
easier way to do it is to downlaod the gimp + python + requisites bundle from
and following the install instructions.
If you are in an operating system rather than windows, you shou8ld just check
your tool for installing components and pick "gimp-python" . The requisite
chain will be taken care of for you. (actually, I am not shure about how to
proceed on Mac os X).
After that, copy the .py file on a Gimp plug-ins folder - you can check the
address for those in the preferences->folder section of GIMP. If you are not
running windows, the .py file should explicitly be marked as an executable
(right click with your file manager, then pick file properties)
After that, this particular plug-in should show up in filters->artistic->photo
