Need some Script-Fu for button creation
        Hi there,

I'm new to Gimp and am proposing that one of my clients use it to create buttons and specially sized and corner curved images for their website.
The website has a content management system and the buttons are created to go onto the site to add 'stories' and 'events' The buttons will also have rounded corners. I have listed below what I think should be the process, but am open to suggestions.

They will need to have round corners, and be published in full colour and with a duo tint that will work for the roll over state.

I need a few scripts writing for them to be able to plug into their copy of Gimp, so that the hard work of creating the button is taken care of.

The process for the creation of the button required is (when they have the image they want to turn into a button)

1: Simply drag (or open in layers) an image i.e. 'runners for a marathon event' onto a working file. The user will scale the image, so that they are happy with how the cropping will work once button is created.
This will need some sort of obvious masking so it's really clear to the user that the output will be within the set 'button shape.

2: the user will type the title over the button

1: Round the corners of the button at a set size
2: Output the file (in full colour) as a PNG, so that it can be added to the web.
3: convert the file from full colour to a green 'duo tint' and output, ready for web.

Much simpler!
1: Need to mask an image to a desired size, round the corners and output to a PNG, ready to upload.

There is an example included for ref.

I usually use Photoshop, so am really new to Gimp, so if my terminology is off, my appologies. Also as I'm new to this, I'll need to get instructions as to how to deploy the scripts into the program and how to run the script each time it's required.
In Photoshop, it's called 'Batch converting' or something like that.

I can pay for this via PayPal when I know that what I'm after will work!

If you need more info, please inbox me at

I look forward to your quotes!
