I'm using GIMP 2.10.6 on Ubuntu 18.10.
I'm trying to script an automatic image manipulation, and for part of the workflow I need to dither a layer in my image.

I can't find anything in the script-fu/python-fu API that exposes the functionality provided by the dialogue located at Colors > Dither...

enter image description here

Am I missing something? Or does it just not exist?

  • What do you mean by "anything that exposes the functionality"? Haven't you tried it on an image?

  • @BillyKerr, I've updated my question so hopefully it's a bit clearer. I am looking for a way to access this functionality from the python api.

    On the contrary, this is a question about GIMP scripting functionality. Tags on this site such as "script", "batch-processing", "photoshot-scripting" and their related questions would suggest otherwise. I'm not asking about Python syntax or about coding practice, I'm asking about available features specific to a graphic design program.

    Have a look at this thread on gimp-forum(dot)net. It would seem it doesn't exist, as you say.

    Also there's a more specific python-fu tag available over at Stack Overflow - and as far as I can tell, user @xenoid has answered most of these. He also answers graphic design questions here. Hopefully he'll see this and can help more than me.
