    Heya, so here's a topic where everyone can write his most liked filter/plugin that is NOT included inside the GIMP natively. Describe it and say why it is your favo, so that we in the end have one thread filled with the pure essence of awesome filters.

    Well, I obviously go for the mother of Photoshop's "Content aware fill" filter, hyped and yet stolen from us :D
    Resynthesizer is a script that fills in a selection you make with random pixels from out of that selection. This means it does the same that our Clone tool does, but it works MUCH faster. It saves you lots and lots of time if you're making a retouch or enhancing a picture by removing trash and so on.
    Here's a video showing the awesomeness of this filter ;D

    I recommend watching it until the end.

    Your turn :)

    I've got a question for you guys: Is there a filter for gimp that acts the same way the Photoshop iWarp-thing works? Like the live-iWarp within the grids you see so often in PS videos. I'd love to have one of these, but i couldnt find any in google.

    Anyway, the liquify thing is quite nice to have, too. We have to go to the small IWarp window .. well.

    Maybe .. but it's definately better than doing IWarp inside a 100x100 window without the background image visible. I didnt find any better transformation plugins/scripts in google, but maybe you know one :/

    Talk to either fencepost,photocomix, or saulgoode.Those guys could figure it out im sure. =)
    It looks like just a grid with nodes that attachs to any image and warp the pixels at those node points.
    Most likely you could script it to have as many nodes as needed.(one node at each grid square intersection maybe?
    Curve bend is close i think...

    My favorite by far is the Texturizer plugins originally created for Photoshop.
    All are 8bf files. (AND ARE FREE) dl them here.
    http://download948.mediafire.com/vc7e8j ... exture.zip

    (Place them (all the 8bf's) in your Plug-ins folder in a sub folder named Texture)
    and point Gimp to the Texture folder path.
    you must have PSPI installed in your plugins folder to work.The new plugins will be in Filters/Texture

    I think G'MIC is also a great plugin.Soooo many filters to play with.

    What does the actual error window say?
    The one that pops up before the Gimp warnings.

    Are you placing PSPI.exe in your c:/program files/Gimp 2.0/lib/Gimp/2.0/plug-ins folder?
    Does the Photo shop Plug-in Settings show up in your Filters menu?
    If it is click on it and a new dialog will open to create a path to all your Photo shop plugins.
    It works just like Gimps path dialog.

    If it doesnt show in your Filters menu list, you have it installed incorrectly.
    (probably not in the right plug-ins folder) it has to go here
    c:/program files/Gimp 2.0/lib/Gimp/2.0/plug-ins folder

    Its that new window that opens when you open a new filter or plug-in to set the values of it. =)
    PSPI has its own that pops up to select a path and save it.(just like in Edit/preferences)

    Just go to Filters, and then find Photoshop Plugin-in settings listed in the menu, click on it and the dialog will open.
    Create a path to the Texture folder and click ok.Gimp will tell you the new plug-in path will be available on next Gimp load.

    Restart Gimp and go to Filters/ Texture and there should be 6 different options to choose from.
