You are now able to create your own custom textures through the plug-in texture-border by creating 2 new folders in the .gimp-2.8 directory like this.
Place all your custom textures (JPG) in the custom folder and restart Gimp-2.8
(PNG works but reverts the alpha) - i have not tested GIF but i assume if it has an alpha channel it will revert colors also.
If you use PNG, JPG, and GIF without an alpha channel for your texture files they should all work correctly.
This version also allows for script writers to see the PDB parameters in the PD Browser.
beautify and skin whitening only for now. More to come later after names are created for params.
More updates are coming (such as move tool) so keep looking at the link for more updated versions.
I will compile each new version as it is released.
IF you have any suggestions for this plugin please post them here.
