Projects / (Buttons for Website) is a Gimp-perl plugin that creates a set of buttons for a Web site. It takes the button labels from a text file, and can easily generate buttons for JavaScript rollover effects. You can add bevel and lighting to the buttons and also keep the .xcf files to work with them after creation. It can also generate example HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code. btn4ws only works with Gimp 1.4.x.
