Fun with the GIMP

These are some fun things I've done using the GIMP, a free and open-source graphics manipulation program that is very impressive. Please take these as inspiration or put them to your own use.

Backgrounds

These are mostly intended as desktop backrounds. They're rather big to use as web page backgrounds, and if you put oilslick behind a web page your users are justified in hunting you down with sticks. You can also use these as Gimp quizzes: try to loosely duplicate them from scratch. (Without using the scripts below.)

Scripts

These are some script-fu programs I created to automate creation of the FloatLand and Queenrocks style backgrounds, so I could play with the parameters. Please play with them and enjoy them. People who use my scripts:
