B&W Color Highlighter

This script de-saturates your image and then selectively restores saturation to a range of hues similar to the foreground color in the materials palette. This allows you to select a specific color from the image to retain. It creates a H/S/L adjustment layer so that you can mask out the effect or do some fine tuning on the resultant settings.

A second script is also included BW-2ColorHighlighter that uses the background color as a secondary hue to also retain.

The video demo linked below shows both scripts in action and how they might be used. This method is not perfect, and it won’t always produce the best results.

Advanced Paste

This script attempts to offer better support for pasting in images from different sources directly into PSP. The three main categories are:
1) Files and Folders – Just copy a file or folder from Windows Explorer then run one of the two scripts and those images will be loaded as layers or as new images

2) Transparent images from various sources – Copying transparent images from a web browser and other editors like The GIMP is now completely possible. While I cannot guarantee parody with all programs that copy and paste transparent images, this should make it possible to use a few.

3) Text – You can now take text from any other program and paste it as a brand new text object. Formatting will unfortunately be lost, and it’ll use your last used text tool settings. But it’s a quick and easy way to add a text object without having to use the Text tool.

All there of these options can be pasted as New Layers or as New Images. If neither of these three options are found on the clipboard then the standard PasteAsNewLayer and PasteAsNewImage commands will be used. Meaning you can bind these scripts to the shortcut keys and it’ll work just as well as the original commands, and hopefully a little better.

If you find a program that this script cannot paste from let me know and I’ll see if I can upgrade the script.

NOTE: Currently this script does not properly support paletted transparency images. If you copy a transparent PNG from a browser and it imports with a background, then chances are it’s a paletted image and the transparency was thrown away on import. I am looking into options and hope this will be fixed in my first update.

Open Animated WebP

So, the WebP format supports Animated Frames. However, PSP does not support loading these kinds of images.

This script makes use of some command line tools provided by Google to convert the frames of an animated webP image into individual PNG images and then load each frame as a layer onto an existing image.

Installation Instructions:
1) First you need to download the libwebp library of programs – https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/download
2) Unzip the folder somewhere you will remember
3) Make note of the path to the bin folder inside the libwebp folder e.g. c:\\libwebp\\bin\\
4) Install Script into the Scripts-Trusted folder of your installation
5) Open the script in a text editor like Notepad or Notepad++. Look for the line that says

######################################################################
# Set Directory of Libwebp tools
######################################################################
wd = “C:\Users\\\libwebp\bin\”

Split Image

Description:
An almost exact copy of Krita’s Image Split command. If you tell it to auto-save the splits then they’ll be saved and closed immediately. If you don’t use autosave, then the cropped splits will remain open as unsaved images.

IMPORTANT: The Horizontal and Vertical Lines refer to how many lines are cut into the image, not how many images you’ll get. Always use 1 line fewer than the number of images you expect to receive. So if I was to do 6 vertical lines I’d get 7 images from that and so on.

Import GIMP Gradient

I’m fairly certain you saw this coming considering the scripting spree I’ve been on lately. xD

GIMP gradients work differently than PSP gradients. Specifically in how the gradients themselves are calculated. They have several different algorithms for intepolating between colors, while PSP only uses one. So not al gradients imported into PSP will look like a 1 to 1 match with GIMP Gradients.

It is possible that one day I may find a way to convert these other models to PSP’s linear model but for now I just force all gradients to be linear.

Version History:
V1.0 – Initial Script released, imports gradients one at a time
V1.1 – Secondary release – can now import several gradients at once

Import GIMP Patterns

The last of the GIMP file format importers. This one takes GIMP Pattern file (.pat) and converts them into PNG files and places them into your patterns folder. You can select multiple patterns at once to import if you wish.

Version History:
V1.0 – Initial Script released, imports patterns.

Import Gimp Image Pipe

In GIMP an Image Pipe or Animated Brush is the equivalent of PSP’s Picture Tubes. In fact, GIMP has the ability to import PSP Picture Tubes and save them as Image PIpes. So I figured we should be able to do the same.

The script works like this. Gimp Animated Brushes or Image Pipes are just a collection of regular GIMP brushes. So, what I do is I calculate the final size of the image, then save out each brush head as a PNG file, importing them back in and copying them into the final image. This is very slow when dealing with large brushes.

I am working on a way to make this faster by pre-making the final image instead of slowly loading images in. But for now, this should, hopefully, suffice.

Gimp Color Palette Converter

GPL Files are how GIMP stores some of its color palettes. It’s a very simple list of RGB values with a name.

This script will import the colors as swatches into the currently selected gradient.

GIMP allows swatches in the same palette to have the same name, PSP does not. So when importing swatches with the same name will be auto-incremented.

Adobe Color Palette Converter

ACO files are Adobe’s Color Swatch/Palette files. They can contain any number of color swatches in multiple color formats: RGB, HSB, CMYK, LAB, Greyscale.

This script allows you to select any ACO file from your hard drive and import them as swatches into the currently selected swatch palette. If they have a name inside the ACO file that name is how the swatch will be named.

Currently, LAB colors are not supported and CMYK has not been tested. So I can only guarantee the RGB, HSB, and Greyscale colors will be converted properly with this script.
