Or some ungodly meld between DeluxePaint 2e and Lua?

hmm.. define "2d graphics"? ...i believe illustrator takes scripts. It would be a lot easier to answer your question if you could provide us with your intention (goal) of scripting "2d graphics" :)

Gimp too can be scripted in a couple of different ways.

If you want to automate a task, you can process files in a batch with Irfanview.

IPE can be scripted, but its mostly used for LaTeX graphics.

PaintShopPro from version 8 (I think) has a Python Scripting interface.
I did use that in the past to automatically load pictures, resize and filter them, and stitch them together to make some large panoramic pictures :)

imagemagick maybe?

Also my own fab which is also in pouët. Note that there's only a 16bit version compiled (i still have not updated my gcc compiler), but the source is given...

You know that GrafX2 does just that, right ?

any adobe application but does that, while indesign does that in a really good way.

adobe provides multiple scripting options for many of its 2D graphics programs

you can control anything in adobe fireworks with javascript for example. i explored this option as a demoplatform / procedural gfx category to no effect


adobe photoshop actions
debabelizer pro batch scripts
gimp script-fu batch interpreter or python
inkscape python scripts
applescript + any mac 2D program

Love 2D is awesome

Stuffs I use for real not mentioned here

- Vector graphics => Python and Cairo in the form of the pycairo module makes for a nice vector graphics package. Render to framebuffer, SVG, PNG, PDF*

- Scientific visualization => Python/Numpy/Scipy/Matplotlib is really cool, despite Matplotlib API being a bit rough around the edges at times.

- Latex => Imagine having sex with a woman, gifted with a really really sexy body (or man, pick your gender) but with an absolutely ugly head. That how it feels to do graphics with Latex. *Latex, dodgy analogy with sex LOL*
jeez, guys, i didnt expect such complex answers, thanks a lot for help, my purpose is to combine drawing graphics and procedural graphics like those used in demos with access to each pixel,
thanks again, i'll try those programs out!!!

I'll check other options, too, but for the beggining I just wanted something relarively easy. I got some experience working with Photoshop and Indesign in my previous job, so surely I'll try to explore those programs more in the future,
