New task at work: “Please make GIMP export file to base64”
Some googling later… Here it is, great post at dev-maziarz.blogspot.com.
Now let’s plug it into GIMP so we can automate the process… I’ve written my first plugin for GIMP! (: You can find it on GitHub as gimp-plugin-base64_file_encoder.
Hope you’ll find it useful.
Encode current image to base64 and put it in clipboard and image directory
Put base64_file_encoder.py in
~/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins and set the file permissions to execute via RMB→Properties or
chmod +x base64_file_encoder.py.
You’ll find new command under File/Encode to base64
After running you’ll be able to copy base64 code from clipboard and find your encoded file in image directory with *.base64 extension.
IT DOESN’T OVERWRITE YOUR IMAGE FILE
