I've got to believe someone has written a SCRIPT-FU scriptor or simple plug-in that reads a file of (x,y) points (in GIMP's coordinate system) and plots small circles of specified color and diameter at those locations in the current layer (or similar functionality that I could adapt), but a quick search doesn't turn anything up. Can someone please help me?

  • why do you have the photoshop scripting tag? – joojaa Dec 4 '18 at 4:48
  • tell me how to turn it off, and I will! – vparunak Dec 5 '18 at 22:45
  • You can press edit and remove it, but i have fixed this. – joojaa Dec 6 '18 at 8:19

Using python scripting you just need:


where [x,y] is a two-elements vector with the coordinates of the center of the dot.

Since this is Python, you have all the Python power to read your coordinates form whatever file you have: flat text, csv, xls, ods, xml, yaml...

  • Then accept the answer :) (not begging for kharma, but answers without upvotes/acceptation keep being popped up by bots...) – xenoid Dec 4 '18 at 15:44
  • I'm a total newbie...I looked for a link to click to do just that. Where is it? – vparunak Dec 5 '18 at 22:43
  • Ah...just found it! – vparunak Dec 5 '18 at 22:44
  • Actually you only "upvoted". To "accept" there is a grey "V" check mark under the votes count (that you can only see on questions you asked) – xenoid Dec 5 '18 at 22:48
  • Got it! Thanks! (and thank you for the original answer--I'm rolling along very nicely now.) – vparunak Dec 6 '18 at 3:33
