The Sharp Blur Script-Fu Script

Sharp Blur is a script for the GIMP Script-Fu. It is available for GIMP 1.0 (sharpblur-gimp-1.0.scm), for GIMP 1.2 (sharpblur-gimp-1.2.scm), and for GIMP 2.0 (sharpblur-gimp-2.0.scm).


The purpose of this script is to blur an image while retaining its edges. While this may seem like a contradiction, it really is not: sharp edges get preserved while soft edges are discarded.

The main area of application for this script is the retouching of bad scans.
