Script to put a frame with Gimp

It is not news that there is a lot of clever content thief out there, who is dedicated to transferring information from blogs to their own sites.

The images can be protected with this script for Gimp that allows to put a frame with our name and that of the site:

The script installs Gimp's own scripts directory.

It may vary depending on the version, to know where we have to paste the script we enter Edit> Preferences> Folders> Scripts (Scripts-fu) from GIMP and we see the path that appears.

We will place it in the one found in Home.

The script comes with data from Jabba, the author of the script, but we can change it by modifying the data highlighted in bold:

 SF-COLOR _ "Border color" '(0 0 0) SF-COLOR _ "Inner color"' (255 255 255) SF-STRING _ "Right text" "Â © Jabba 2011"SF-STRING _" Left text """SF-FONT _" Font "" Comic Sans MS Bold "SF-ADJUSTMENT _" Font size (pixels) "'(14 2 1000 1 10 0 1) SF-COLOR _" Text color "' (135 135 135)

The script can be downloaded from here

    This is very useful. Thanks, Courage. Hope you can keep sharing more details like these.

    Useful to prevent your images from being copied. But if the thieves have time to spare with another "gimpazo" it is cut and solved.

      Ok man, you've already given the idea haha

        hehe, but still useful for:

        - avoid being copied quickly (if they do they try hard)
        - avoid massive or large-scale copying (useful if you usually upload images)
        - give a more professional air

      I've never been a fan of doing this kind of thing (I mean stealing posts, and also protecting ours in this way) because I really think that people should understand and know how to do things ... that's why I get in such a bad mood when they take something from here and don't leave any reference.

        It is logical

      Not even with a "gimpazo": just use "screenshot", selecting the area of ​​the capture, and voilà! You have a .png copy of whatever is displayed on the screen.

    Hello, it seems that in your system appears the list of all the collaborators of the Distro that you use, you manage a free system itself, with good and free tools, and you think about protecting a simple image… then use leopard or windows….

    comes out, we are in a world like this, where people are good or bad, it is better to recommend people to do something good, than to incite them to do something bad to obtain something.

    greetings to all, and thanks for the detail.
