There is a plugin for GIMP that does this sort of thing very well, in 
fact it's based on the paper that you've linked to. So for this 
technique external may be better.

However, a better idea would be another technique that maps the texture 
straight to the mesh, I read about it a few years ago. It's very robust 
and the results are quite amazing. I'll look for the paper and post it 
here when I find it.
