Path tangents and normals

Three Gimp plugins to draw tangents or normals to paths. To get the plugins, do:
  1. At the bottom of this page there is the Download button. Clicking it you get one .ZIP file. Unzip it and put the python file it contains in your Gimp's plug-ins folder and restart Gimp.
  2. This registers in your Gimp the plugins
    • Bounding box
    • Common tangent or normal between two paths
    • Parallel tangents or normals
    • Tangents or normals from a point
    • Tangents or normals from a stroke end of another path
  3. To find the plugins in Gimp, go to the Paths tab and right-click the path you are going to crop or slice. This opens a pop-up window. At the bottom follow the link Tools > Tangents and normals > ...  and choose.
