I have searched the forum about python scripts and found that I place the .py file in ~/library/applicationsupport/gimp/plugins. I downloaded a plugin from the plugin registry at gimp.org and placed it in the correct folder. I am not finding the plugin anywhere. In text edit at the end of the script, I believe the script is suppose to show up in "<image>/Python-Fu/Render/HDR tone mapping" Am I right in assuming that their should be a pull down menu called Python-Fu in the menu bar of the image window with a sub-menu of Render and a further option of HDR tone mapping? Well, there is no Python-Fu menu. I tried editing the line to read "<image>/Filters/Artistic/HDR tone mapping" but it did not appear there either. I looked for it in the Xtns/plug-ins manager with no success. Do I need to do anything with the .py file beside place it in the correct folder? Can I use python scripts? I have a Script-Fu menu, why don't I have a Python-Fu menu? Is there something I need to do in the Python-Fu console? Thank you for taking the time to help me.
