Question Wanting to find / create a script which stitches images together
Hey all,

I'm trying to create a series of images which comps together 3 images side by side. So far, I've gimp'd one together in the style I am after.

Quite basic, I have a background layer, and each picture sits next to each other. the size of the 3 images sit nicely upon a 1920x1080 backdrop with a makeshift gap around the sides to look (sort of) like a frame.

I have a lot of these images I have downloaded. They're incredible film poster artwork designs by some very talented artists, and for my media centre (xbmc) I would like them to act as backdrops.

I'll need to the images out so they have the matching dimensions, or this will be trickier than I'd like. I think a lot of them are the same dimensions.

So basically so far I've got this background:
[Image: lwow9X2l.jpg]

And I've added the 3 images like this (blurred to respect the artist):
[Image: 8IDv4Ull.jpg]

And that's about it.

I had a look on Gimp registry under S for 'stitch'; it was the most likely term to use I thought, but saw nothing ideal.

Does anyone know of a plugin/script which I could use to achieve what I'm after?

Kind regards, a humble and total Gimp script/plugin noobie!

The plugin that comes with Gimp is in Filters -> Combine -> Filmstrip

If you look back a couple of posts there is a thread about using this.

A little video I made for this shows the settings you will need, mostly setting to zero.

Just look at the first minute for the settings.

However, for just three images,
IMHO Make a canvas the size you want, copy/paste each image as a separate layer so you can move them around.

Do you have that many to make?

For a frame add a layer at the top, fill with a pattern, cut out a selection with rounded corners.

If you want a script for a frame, look here http://gimpscripts.com and do a search for frame
example one of several http://gimpscripts.com/2011/10/mats-and-frames/

Edit:

If you have lots to do, it might be better with ImageMagick (IM), but this is command line.

Say you have 3 images 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg Join side by side with the IM command

Code:
convert 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg +append inner.jpg

which makes a new image inner.jpg

Next if you have a background image back.jpg you can overlay inner.jpg to make a final image finished.jpg with this IM command

Code:
composite -gravity center inner.jpg  back.jpg finished.jpg

Jpegs not a requirement, just for example, most image formats are ok. If you want to automate it further, you need to make a batch file.

Maybe ofnuts' Arrange-Layers-0.2.py found here might do the trick also...
