This script simulates a high quality (portrait) photo like these from the National Geographic.
Copy it into the scripts folder from GIMP, you will find it then under Filters -> Generic -> National Geographic.
Thanks to Martin Egger for the shadow revovery and the sharpen script, which I included in the script.

Update1: Added local contrast option.
Update2: Optional inverted layer mask for brighter skin types.
Update3: Added a batch version of this script, run it with
gimp -i -b '(elsamuko-national-geographic-batch "picture.jpg" 60 1 60 25 0.4 1 0)' -b '(gimp-quit 0)'
or for more than one picture
gimp -i -b '(elsamuko-national-geographic-batch "*.jpg" 60 1 60 25 0.4 1 0)' -b '(gimp-quit 0)'
Be careful, the batch script overwrites the original image. More info here:
http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Basic_Batch/
Update4: Fix for the batch script, it merges now all layers before saving.
Update5: Extensive internal fixes. Better defaults. And all edits are executed on extra layers.
Update6: Batch script also updated.
Update7: Two tinting options, red and blue.

Sure, I'm not the best guy to help you, for I am not really a friend of Steve Jobs. A script-fu file is nothing but a text file. I never used a Mac, but I know Linux, and it identifies a file the same way as Mac OS. It does not "look" to the .scm extension as Windows does, but to the file's contents and "sees" it is text. I suppose that if you drag the document into your scripts directory, it must be copied there. Don't forget to restart Gimp or refresh the scripts (Xtns > Script-fu > Refresh scripts) after you copied them. Another solution: Elsamuko made a zip archive of 12 .scm files (among them National Geographic). Go and look there: http://sites.google.com/site/elsamuko/ François Collard.
