Script-Fu New Guides Rule of Thirds 0.1

This is a very simple script that adds the rule of thirds guides to the current image

    This is a very simple script that adds the rule of thirds guides to the current image.

    I used to add guide by guide by percent, then crop, remove the guides and add them again one by one. After many times I did it like that, I decided to create a script to do it faster, for which I had to self train on how to do it using script-fu, to avoid poor portability.

    I created the script with my Fedora 8 Linux distribution for GIMP 2.4, but it also works for 2.6.

    This script works for any platform that GIMP works with.

    Installation procedure:

    For Windows
    Download the script and copy it to the following directory:
    %ProgramFiles%\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts

    For Linux/Unix
    Download the script and copy it to the following directory:
    /usr/share/gimp/2.0/scripts

    Once installed, you will have a new option in Image -> Guides -> New Guides Rule of Thirds
