Full transparency at the edge -- yes, very important!  I've noticed in some
cases that even the very edge, as faded as it is, is still a 'hard' edge.  That
definitely won't do.

(you can move the pasted layer around when
the gaussian-blur window pops up)

I'm very interested, but I can't figure out what to do with the contents of file  I can't find any .py files in any GIMP subfolder.  I've
googled, to no avail.  Thanks.

Oh - sorry - I just saw this e-mail now.
Put th e;py file in a GIMP plug-ins folder
(on Linux it is /home/<user>/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins), for example,
Check a suitable folder in edit->preferences->folders->plug-ins

On Linux after putting the file on such a folder, you have to make it executable
(chmod a+x, <file> or right_click and preferences, mark as executable with
a graphical file manager). GIMP needs to be restarted to find the plug-in.


By the way, is there a way to not have to type in the 'challenge' every time I
want to post in this forum?  Can't always read those darned little things.
Also, can I not edit a post after I've made it?  If you happen to know.  Thanks.
