In these pages you'll find a set of -hopefully useful- plugins for the Gimp released under the GPL. For now, there's only one plugin (noise). I hope to have more relatively soon. Meanwhile, you can give this one a try.

This plugin is known to run under Gimp 2.2. It should work with any Gimp 2.x though.

What is this noise plugin?

It's a plugin for the Gimp. It originally started when I needed to generate noise patterns but with the feature sizes larger than a single pixel, and I couldn't find an easy solution. I guess it has evolved a little beyond just that. Take a look at some sample textures.


  • Can generate tileable textures
  • Can generate textures for use in spherical mapping
  • Can use foreground/background colors, gradients, independent R/G/B/A or warp an image
  • Implements several noise functions
  • The way the colors are mapped can be tuned (gradient rotated, reversed, repeated, etc..)
  • Fractal Brownian Motion (fBm) or Multifractal textures can be generated
  • A phase can be specified, which results in the gradual change of the noise (useful to generate animation frames)
  • Can save and load presets
  • and more...

A bug was found in the loading and saving of presets. This affects systems which use a comma (not a dot) to separate decimals. Fixed in this release

There's a binary release for windows now, thanks to Michael Schumacher.
  • Released Felimage Noise Plugin v 0.1.1.
