when you open Script-fu it doesn't have the option of layer effects... What do I do?
istarlome's avatar
when i wrote this tutorial i was using a script i found online. i can't remember where i got it. but it is also part of the gimp fx foundry. you can find the fx foundry here: [link]

hope this helps...
