G’MIC Pack node

This documentation is for version 0.3 of G’MIC Pack.


This filter tries to pack all input layers into a single image, while trying to minimize the empty areas.

This problem being NP-hard, the algorithm finds (of course) a non-optimal, but often acceptable solution to this packing problem.
