Updated versions of the plugins available on the new page.

For more information, please see the french page of yuv or fourier plugins.

What are these plugins

  • yuv : a simple plugin to convert images to and from yuv in GIMP
  • fourier : a plugin that does a FFT of an image
    • The advantage of this plug-in over the other FFT plug-ins available is that it lets you work with the transformed image inside Gimp.
    • It can be used to remove moiré patterns (see README.Moire).

Download section

You can download GIMP at http://www.gimp.org.

How to use

On Windows, simply copy the binaries in the plugin directory of GIMP.

On GNU/Linux, download the source files, and type make; make install. You will need the development packages gimp-dev, glib-dev, gtk+-dev and fftw-dev.


  • These plugins have not been fully tested, and these is certainly dozen of bugs. Mogens Kjaer <[email protected]> have corrected some (see his original version on ftp://ftp.crc.dk/pub/gpplugin). May 5, 2002
  • The FFT plugin use a special pixel to store data to be able to make te reverse FFT. If this pixel is altered (can be often when using filters) the reverse FFT will give a blank or black image… I am open to any suggestion to improve this.
