“Legofy” Gimp plugin

This is a very simple script “legoizes” a standard image via the Gimp image editor. It was used to create the header image used on this website as seen above. The concept comes from Patrick Mahoney. To install, download and put in in your gimp plug-in path (eg ~/.gimp-2.2/plug-ins/ or /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/ for me). You’ll also need to download two Lego patterns and put them in one of Gimp’s pattern directories (~/.gimp-2.2/patterns/ or /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plugins/) Note that it is not perfect and it generally works best if you pixelize the image by hand before running the script. Let me know if you have any suggestions/comments.
