2. Usando Scripts do tipo Script-Fu

2.1. Script-Fu?

Script-Fu scripts are similar to very powerful macros that you may be familiar with from other programs. Script-Fu is based on an interpreted language called Scheme, and works by using functions that interact with GIMP's internal functions. You can do all kinds of things with Script-Fu, but an ordinary GIMP user will probably use it for automating things that:

  • Você quer fazer com frequência.

  • São muito complicadas de fazer, e difíceis de lembrar.

Remember that you can do a whole lot with Script-Fu. The scripts that come with GIMP can be quite useful, but they can also serve as models for learning Script-Fu, or at least as a framework and source of modification when you make your own script. Read the Script-Fu Tutorial in the next section if you want to learn more about how to write your own scripts.

Vamos descrever alguns dos scripts mais úteis neste capítulo, mas não vamos cobrir todos eles. Existem simplesmente scripts demais. Alguns dos scripts também são muito simples e você provavelmente não precisará de qualquer documentação para poder usá-los.

Script-Fu (a dialect of Scheme) isn't the only scripting language available for GIMP. But Script-Fu is the only scripting language that is installed by default.
