A Facial Symmetry Plugin for GIMP

This is a simple Facial Symmetry plugin for GIMP, written in python.It creates a vertical mirror image of a selection, which can be used to show left-hand and right-hand facial symmetries. To try this out, all you need to do is download the script, and store it in the gimp plugins folder, in your home directory. Remember to set the executable flag on the file.


The script can be downloaded from HERE.


An example shows how to use it. First, open a suitable image with gimp.




Select an area to mirror. The right hand edge of the selection is the axis.




Now, run the plugin, which is found under /Filters/Utils/Facial Symmetry.




You have the option of creating either a left-hand image, or a right, or both. Make your selection, and click OK.
