This plugin does a pretty good job of eliminating shadows and highlights in photographs. It gives you two layers that basically act like adjustment layers, and changing the opacity will alter the effect.
This script is pretty good and I use it everyday.
Though, I've got a request for future versions :
Personnally, I don't like moving the cursors in the dialog window because there is no realtime preview. So I generally let them both to zero, and then, I make the adjustments with the opacity of the layers.
I've edited the script so that the cursors are at zeri by default.
I think about two possible evolutions :
1) Removing the dialog window that is not useful if we work after with the opacity of the layers
2) Proposing a realtime preview when we work in that window
2 is impossible (with script fu )
I don't know anything about computers beyond using normal applications. How do I convert a Script-Fu to a plug-in ready to file in the Plug In folder, please? For instance Shadow and Highlight
In this case, you're dealing with a scheme file aka "Script" so this particular file would go in your GIMP's "scripts" folder.
I've created a post on my blog, specifically for beginners, that explains this process:
