Visible watermark with 3D-effect Deutsche Fahne english flag

The following script enables you to enhance the free image manipulating program GIMP. It provides functionality to create visible watermarks with a 3 dimensional look. After correct integration of the script, there will be two new entries in the GIMP-Menu Filter->Decor: Watermark (Image) and Watermark (Label).

You will get the possibility to chose an individual image or a label inclusively the font-size, shadow-offset and shadow-colour. You can set the position of the watermark completely free. Besides you can rotate the watermark around it's center.

The scripts will provide copies of your input images, so that your original pictures will be unchanged.
