Guides Save and Load Script for GIMP

Post#1 by tim » 09 Oct 2016, 14:35

This script here allows you to Save and Load sets of guides.
Unlike the GAT tools which only allows loading of guides in ABSOLUTE (in pixels).
This script can load guides with RELATIVE_MODE (in percentage) (for example if you saved a guide at 10% it'll load up on your image at 10%) which I assume will be used more often then absolute mode.
It saves all guides sets into a file under your [user]/.gimp-2.8/guides/guides.txt file
Here's the script
:download: #

Menu location of script:
guides_save_load_01_menu_location.png # (38.23 KiB) Viewed 972 times (Watermarked | Thumbnail)
Save Option (just a name):
guides_save_load_02_save_option.png # (11.22 KiB) Viewed 972 times (Watermarked | Thumbnail)
Load Options (Guide's name, Remove existing guides or not, and Load Method):
guides_save_load_02_load_options.png # (16.12 KiB) Viewed 972 times (Watermarked | Thumbnail)
the guidex.txt file will look something like this format

Code: Select all

Guide:10% border|6000.0,4000.0|400.0,3600.0|600.0,5400.0
Guide:My Guides 1|640.0,400.0|200.0,360.0,40.0|320.0,576.0,64.0
Guide:My Guides 2|480,300|40,200|64,320
Where the first part before the pipe (|) is just hardcoded to say Guide: then the guide sets' name that you want to save it as.
The second part is Width and Height of image that the guides were saved on.
Next is a list of horizontal guides (y-positions in pixels).
Next is a list of vertical guides (x-positions in pixels).
