Plug-ins noise generator & BIMP

rich2005
I have heard a lot of great things about GIMP and wanted to give it a try.  I
downloaded GIMP 2.8.20 ok.

I wanted the following plugins -
- layer via copy/cut
- noise generator
- BIMP

http://registry.gimp.org/glossary/a appear to have a lot of broken links but
after some seraching I downloaded 'layer via copy/cut' from DeviantArt and this
installed ok.

I downloaded noise-generator.exe but when opening it get the message 'the
program can't start because libgimpiu-2.0-0.dll is missing from your computer'
I downloaded the dll file and put in the same folder as noise-generator.exe but
still get the same message.

I downloaded BIMP.exe which when I open crashes the computer - blue screen with
stop code 'memory management'.

I am running Windows 10.

Hopefully there is a simple answer to the above as these plugs should be pretty
standard.

thanks

I think you have the idea of using Gimp plugins wrong.

Layer-via-copy-cut is a python plugin and for installation (if you call it that)
put the file layer-via-copy-cut.py into your Gimp profile plugins folder

C:\Users\your-name\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins.  

It puts menu entries bottom of the Gimp layer menu.

The noise plugin is a little different, it is a **compiled** plugin, a little
bit on the old site but still works.

Guessing you  got this from
http://photocomix-resources.deviantart.com/art/Gimp-Noise-generator-plugin-110164748
as a zip file.

Again there is no installer, put the file noise-generator.exe in
C:\Users\your-name\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins.  If you use English do not bother with
the other stuff (translations)

Where are you going wrong?

***Do not try and run a Gimp plug-in from outside Gimp***. see attachment 1 - no
need for additional dll's

The plugin will be in the menu system, in this case see attachment 2.

Any valid script or plugin can be located in the menu system using Help ->
Plugin Browser.

BIMP for Windows in this case is an installer, the file
gimp-plugin-bimp_win32.exe

After installation, do not run bimp.exe, use the Gimp menu entry File -> Batch
Image Manipulation... see attachment 3
