Create Layer Mask from...

GIMP 2.8 Python Plugin.
This plugin allows you to create layer mask from another layer mask.
Or create layer mask from grayscale copy of layer.
I hope this plugin will be useful for someone else.

Installation Instructions:
1. Extract "create-layer-mask-from.py" from .zip archive to the ".../.gimp-2.x/plug-ins/" directory.
2. Make sure that the extracted file is executable.
3. If you are already running GIMP, close and reopen it.

This plugin requires Python!
If you have the "Filters > Python-Fu > Console" menu item you are all set. If not, install Python support for GIMP.

Version History:
v1.0 (30.08.2012)
- Initial release.

My other plugins:
Duplicate to another Image
Layer via Copy/Cut
Place Layer into Selection
Scale Layer to Image Size

This is awesome dude! Send it to Gimp developers, this functionality should be included by default in the next version.
