is it possible writing a plug-in to generate an image without an opened
image? I found no examples. As a test I tried to open a file image only.
I've got the following message:

GIMP-Error: Procedure 'python-fu-openImageFile' has been called with an
invalid ID for argument 'image'. Most likely a plug-in is trying to work
on an image that doesn't exist any longer.

Here a code snippet:

def openImageFile(procedure, args, data):
     print("start openImageFile")
     return procedure.new_return_values(Gimp.PDBStatusType.SUCCESS,

class OpenImageFile(Gimp.PlugIn):

     def do_query_procedures(self):
         return ["python-fu-openImageFile"]

     def do_create_procedure(self, name):
         data = None
         procedure =
             self, name, Gimp.PDBProcType.PLUGIN, openImageFile, data
         procedure.set_documentation(DESCR_SHORT, DESCR_LONG, name)
         procedure.set_attribution(AUTHOR, COPYRIGHT, DATE)
         return procedure

Gimp.main(OpenImageFile.__gtype__, sys.argv)

Perhaps this will help:

It is a gimp-python extension to open dropbox lepton .lep files:

It took me some experimentation to write as well.

I tried also an scheme script using gimp-file-load. It is using a GFile
argument now. In 2.10 I could use a filename. How to create a GFile in
scheme in 2.99?

Don't know about scheme.
