What did not work? Downloading the python script. Removing .txt bit at the end. Putting it in the plug-ins folder. Making the script executable. Best bet that last one.

So I think I've found where the file goes but do I have to do anything to the .py file besides copy it into the file.

RE: Exporting Multiple Layers Into Images (PNG, JPG, etc)
Hi, I'm new to gimp and this forum.

I currently have gimp 2.8 for Windows 8.1, along with python34. I extracted the export_layers.py and the export_layers directory into the plug ins folder. I also installed the Photo Effects (http://registry.gimp.org/node/97) plug in into scripts, if that will help. I have no other modifiers.

The Export Layers plug in isn't working for me. When I open up Gimp, I see the 'export layers' and 'export layers to' options. However, when I use either one, the program is completely white, windows says "pythonw.exe is not working', closes it, and then gimp displays:

Plug-in crashed: "export_layers.py"
(C:\Users\Hendrik\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins\export_layers.py)

The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.

I re-extracted the export_layers.zip or whatever it was called, in case there was an error in the extraction, but it still doesn't work. Do I have an incorrect version of python, or what went wrong? Thank you in advance for your help.

caveat:
1. This thread starts in 2011 and parts are out of date
2. I can get a Win8 working in a VM but not at the moment

Gimp 2.8 comes with an in-built python, so is there any other purpose to install Python. Gimp uses python 2.7 so there could very well be a confict.

Only helps if you say where you got the export_layers.py from. Photo Effects is ancient, do not think all of it works but I will check.

That is not the python plugin referenced earlier http://registry.gimp.org/node/18440

give a link to that file or whatever it was called, maybe someone with Win 8.1 can try it.

Very probable

edit:
This one maybe? https://github.com/khalim19/gimp-plugin-export-layers

If it is any consolation, does not work here either. screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/KkHihIW.jpg

Edit again:
Revisiting the old photoeffects, use the newer ev_iccii_photoeffects_246c.zip, & read the readme.txt

Mostly works, you find the entries in Filters -> Decor -> Photo Effects.

Most of these effects (+ a lot more) have been superceded by more recent plugins such as G'mic
http://gmic.sourceforge.net/

A new day, different machines

To be fair to the export-layers.py plugin author it does work.

In a Win7 VM, with no extra python installation, looks like this http://i.imgur.com/wEePOhB.jpg

The plugin notes do say that the format save dialog pops-under so you need to look for the extra icon in the toolbar.

saved images: http://i.imgur.com/wANwHTv.jpg

what you need in your plug-ins folder - 1 folder + 1 plugin http://i.imgur.com/F0tIbD3.jpg

Also works in my regular PCLOS Gimp 2.8.14 linux machine.
