Gimp layer automation anyone? Please!
This addresses Gimp Experts only ;-)

Can anyone code a Gimp automation for me (paid!) that sequentially loads shoe images from a folder, creates a layer from the "2D view" and saves this as new image?

"2D view": Naturally, the shoe source photos show their depth too (3D). But for a web project I need only the parts that would be at the front: If someone was wearing the shoe, the depth parts would be hidden by the foot/leg, hence these parts need to become transparent.

Although it may sound complicated, manually I can do it rather easily with Gimp, and for how to do it automatically I could provide you with a detailed step by step guide (unless you have a better way to do it). Then you would "program" what I "see" and the sequence of the tools I use.

"Automatically": This actually wouldn't be fully automatic, don't worry (is rather difficult), instead your code would allow me with 2 to 3 clicks to extract the layer of what I need of each image.

Anyone done sth similar before (??), or anyone sure to have this skill nonetheless? ;-)

Everyone (incl. moderators!) are VERY WELCOME to get in touch asap please! Although I am not a company and can't splash out big cash, if you have the required skill for this, I'm confident we can agree on a deal.

Thanks guys, and gals!

I've uploaded example images. The first one always is the source image, and the second the target image:

Hope this helps to give you an idea of what's needed here.
