GIMP Plugin for automating the boilerplate involved in colorizing manga pages my way
View coloring_helper.py
#!/usr/bin/python
"""Simple GIMP helper to automate the boierplate of my approach to colorizing
manga pages.
Usage:
1. Run this plugin from "Image > Start Colorizing..."
2. Select the regions to be colored using whatever approach you find works
best. This script will preserve the original image as the bottom layer
(hidden below a solid white layer) so it can easily be used as input for
selection methods which don't play nicely with transparency.

CONTRIBUTING:

  • Un-cited examples are grandfathered in and new ones are only accepted from people I trust.
  • Contributions of citation links for existing entries or new entries with citation links are welcome from anyone (but I can't guarantee GitHub will send me a notification, so it may take time for me to notice and respond)
  • Ideally, I'd like to cite the sources where I saw the grandfathered-in entries so I may keep them in the TODO list if a citation is given that points to a story I haven't read.
  • Note that, when the chapter numbers given by the author and the site disagree, the author's numbering scheme is used in the titles for citations.
