I just downloaded FX-Foundry, which is a very cool collection of scripts for Gimp. Problem is, there’s so many scripts they aren’t very well documented. I can’t find sample images of most of them. So I decided to make a reference sheet for myself. And I may as well post it here.
This is quick and dirty. I almost always used the default settings. And at the moment I’m really only interested in the photo ones, so I’m just doing those. I might add others over time. We’ll see.
ETA: so far I’ve done the Photo > Effects folder and the Colors folder. Scroll down to find what you want.
Here’s the original picture:
From the Photo > Effects folder:
Black and white photo
Cross processing (with a teal overcast color; should be fun to play with changing that)
Eg Black and White (had a whole bunch of options for slightly different results)
Eg Duotone Simulation (opacity at 100%)
Eg Infrared Simulation
Film Noise (I can't see the difference either)
Tone Mapping (unlike Film Grain, I could see some subtle differences between the before and after. but I don't know what it's meant for)
I couldn’t get Sepia Toning to work at all.
Photo > Enhancement and Photo >Sharpen may be coming soon. Beauty just woke up so I can’t do them now.
Later. The other two Photo categories turned out to be boring (read: subtle) so I’m not doing them. I’ll do the Colors folder instead.
Our new original:
I mostly stuck to the default settings on each script.
Convert Color Temperature - warms or cools your image. this is fairly cooled
Eg Color Saturation
Graypoint (interesting script - it tweaks your image so the current FG color (pink for this one) is grayscale or white)
Lasm's Lab Color Punch
Lasm's LAB Ultra-Vivid
Lasm's LAB-Wow (crazy script with a zillion choices, most of them named after martial arts, or possibly Hollywood martial arts. no explanation given. must play later. This one's Color Punch)
Lasm's LAB-Wow, using the Line Art Supremo. I'm pretty sure the checkboxes at the bottom correspond to things like "flatten image" in scripts written by sane programmers
Lasm's Light Invert
Lasm's Asymmetric Solarize
Lasm's Color-Only Invert
Lasm's Simple Color Invert
Lasm's Asymmetric Ultra-Vivid Solarize
Lasm's Vivid V-Invert (That Lasm guy is crazy, I'm telling you)
Media colorize (lets you pick the color first)
Split Tone (lets you pick colors, this is orange and blue)
