Scale Layer to Image Size



GIMP 2.8 Python Plugin.
This plugin scales the contents of the layer (or layer group) to image size.
I hope this plugin will be useful for someone else.

Installation Instructions:
1. Extract "" 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:
v1.3 (01.06.2012)
- Added support for working with layer groups.
- To the two types of scaling added three more.
- Added "Align to image center" option.
- Fixed bug in "Crop to Image Size" which leads to cropping of the whole image, and not the selected layer.
v1.2 (19.05.2012)
- Added "Crop to Image Size" option.
- The value "Addition" is now measured as a percentage (%).
- Some code improvements.
v1.0 (13.05.2012)
- Initial release.

My other plugins:
Create Layer Mask from...
Duplicate to another Image
Layer via Copy/Cut
Place Layer into Selection

I started using gimp today to try to stop photoshop and this function will help me a lot.

Sorry for the stupid question, how do I activate this plugin? How do I open this window after installation?
