Here you can find an index of all the custom scripts for special effects and editing actions shared in the Scripting Support forum. You can also download complete package files of these scripts from the Script Downloads page.

These scripts can all be downloaded and played 'as is' inside existing paintings to add their effect.

Many of these scripts will not work in ArtRage 5.0.1 - 5.0.4, you need to update to 5.0.5 which has a bug/script fix for that issue. I've also made some minor edits to some scripts to stop them throwing up errors, so if you want the originals, use the links below.

This post is for sharing resources as an easy to browse reference. If you need help with editing or using any of these scripts, or want to discuss technical aspects, go to the original post (linked next to each script), or start a new post in the Scripting Support forum. If you would like to share a link to your script, please do!
