Gimp-Python support easier by photocomix-resources Gimp-Python support easier by photocomix-resources
UPDATE 15 november 2008

I just update the content, to the last available versions

Note that Python can't be fully updated at the moment
The last Python version is 2.6.1 but the other libraries require Python 2.5.x ,best i can do is replace the previous version 2.5.0 with 2.5.2

Now the windows version of Gimp support also Python,..and there are a lot of useful gimp script written in that language

Install python for Gimp is not simple as double click on a single installer...but is not even too complex, you don't need to be rocket scientist to do it

And anyway this pack should make it even easier, because contain all that is needed, included a step by step how to

since windows user as me will never read something called " READ ME" before install something, how to is included in a file called
"IDIOTS NEVER READ THIS.txt" if you fail to read it, you are just insulting yourself, don't complain with me

Happy Gimping

I've gotten into this recently and I found it to be a mine field as well. Luckily, I'm coming at this from the programming side and have it all up and running. As these comment are old, I'm not sure if it's worth the time to write stuff out right now. If someone sees this and has a problem setting up, or getting started with python-fu, reply or send me a message and I can probably help you. If enough people message, then I'll write up and post a tut or something.
where is download link ?

Hi Photocomix-resources,

I already followed your instructions in ''idiots never read this'', install the python, gtc, and the rest, also the GIMP, but I don't use link 'install now' instead I use customize button, but always I don't find Python link available in there, so can't be use or can't be click, or else.
I read that for GIMP in german edition is not available with Python link or coloum where u can click, so actually I don't know wjat else to do, because it is not working.
FYI, I use GIMP in german edition bcos that's automatic being load in my computer as I also live in german, any suggestion? Thanks

It seems that python gimp and always have problems. This becomes frustrating.
i was trying for most updated version of apps that listed from ~photocomix-resources
* python-2.6.5.msi
* gtk-2.12.9-win32-1.exe (not changed)
* pycairo-1.8.6.win32-py2.6.exe
* pygobject-2.20.0.win32-py2.6.exe
* pygtk-2.16.0.win32-py2.6.exe
* gimp-2.6.10-i686-setup-1.exe
and it was successful
english is not my first language, so hope you're understand

I just uploaded an updated version of this. I used the most recent files and the instructions from Just because that's how I installed Python and it worked for me.

Did it because I made a video on youtube that turned out needed python support. I didn't know that when I recorded the video. So I wanted my viewers to have a recent and good source for installing Python on windows.
nvm what i said earlier i love you thanks so much!!!!
you are the most confusing person in the world!1!!!!!
how do i get this into gimp?
