Layer properties - What is the rotation and xy position?
Is there a way to find out the position of a layer after you move it from the starting point of 0,0 and 0 rotation?

I'm trying to line-up two images and the bottom layer is the reference image so I move the top layer in the x,y direction and rotate the layer until it looks good. But instead of saving I want the new x,y location along with the rotation number to enter into an Imagemagik bash script.

I'm using GIMP 2.6.11, but will update to 2.8 if necessary.

Ok .....Thanks for the reply. I have the script working and it will take me a few days to fully test it. I will post back later with any questions.

I got the script working and I'm 100% happy with it, it's very easy and quick to use. But how do I store the values or display them in a GIMP message?

Thanks

OK .... thanks for your help ofnuts. I am going to look more into the scripts portion of GIMP so that I can customize or write scripts myself.

After using the exact-aligner script I can see the power of scripts.
