Pre-installed Python plugins¶
This page describes all plugins that are available in Krita by default (you don’t need to install them).
If you want to see a selection of custom user-made Python plugins that you can additionally download and install, see User-made Python Plugins.
To learn how to manage your plugins, see Managing Python plugins.
If you want to know more about an individual plugin, you can access the plugin’s manual by going to
Python Plugin Manager tab. Then you can click on a specific plugin and the manual will appear in the bottom text area.
Mixer Slider Docker
Docker that allows you to choose a color from gradients between the current color and other selected colors.
Docker that allows you to control palettes more easily. You can add swatches, groups and export the palette settings, or even the palette itself as a GIMP Palette or Inkscape SVG.
Quick Settings Docker
Docker that allows you to quickly set the opacity, flow and size from a predefined list.
Plugin that assigns presets to one of ten configurable hotkeys. To use, go to, and a window will pop up with a preset chooser and ten boxes above it. Underneath the boxes is the hotkey the box is associated with.
Customize your shortcuts by editing the configurations in, and then change the “Activate Brush Preset” actions under “Ten Brushes”.
Comics Project Management Tools
Plugin that simplifies comics creation.
Organize and quickly access their pages.
Export to multiple formats with proper metadata.
Random suggestions for metadata to avoid spending time on finding the perfect title before starting the project.
Plugin for Game Developers and Graphic Designers.
Batch export of assets to multiple sizes, file types and custom paths.
Renaming layers quickly with the smart rename tool.
Export all layers or only selected layers.
By default, the plugin exports the images in an
exportfolder next to the Krita document and follows the structure of your layer stack.
Assign Profile Dialog
Allows you to assign a profile to an image instead of converting it to that profile. The difference is that it allows only interpreting the colors by the new profile, but not change any of the values. It can be found in, and will present a list of profiles for the current image’s color model.
Allows you to select a document and convert its colors to a new color space, like RGBA, CMYKA or L*a*b.
Channels to Layers
Splits channels from a layer to sub-layers.
Allows you to select a document and scale, crop and rotate in one action.
Quickly apply a filter on selected documents.
Performs a high pass filter on the active document.
Allows you to select a document and export its layers in an ordered and sensible manner.
Last Documents Docker
Script that shows the recently opened documents as a thumbnail image.
Krita Script Starter
A script that helps set up the various files that Krita expects to see when it runs a script, namely:
.desktopmeta data file;
the main directory for your plugin;
the main python file for your package;
Manual.htmlfile for your documentation;
Python Plugin Importer
Imports Python plugins from zip files. See Managing Python plugins.
A small Python scripting console, allows to write code in an editor and run it, with feedback related to the output of the execution. You can also debug your code using the “Debug” button.
Similar to Ten Brushes, this plugin allows an assignment of Python scripts to ten configurable hotkeys.
