The wavelet denoise plugin is a tool to reduce noise in each channel of an image separately. The default colour space to do denoising is YCbCr which has the advantage that chroma noise can be reduced without affecting image details. Denoising in CIELAB (L*a*b*) or RGB is available as an option. The user interface allows colour mode and preview channel selection. The denoising threshold can be set for each colour channel independently.
This Shadow&Highlight script does a decent job of lightening shadows and/or darken highlights in photographs. The UI gives you five control sliders. Two for control of the Shadow and Highlight amount (opacity), two for the tonal width of each contrast mask layer (using gamma), and one for the blur radius of the masks. Plus the option to flatten visible layers when done.
i update all library to the newest version available.
But please note that Python itself may only partially updated (now is included 2.5.2 before was 2.5.0) since most of other py libraries included require python 2.5 and will not accept python 2.6.
And also about Python windows binary come in several version so if you have a peculiar architecture(i.e a X86 processor ) may be better for you download it directly here http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.5.2/
GAP ( Gimp Animation Package ) 2.4.0 for Windows XP Vista (and Gimp-2.4.x )
This is not a new plugin but i think useful post the download link
Windows users often don't know how compile from source and this Windows installer is hard to trace even by Googling
Most of links will lead to the only official installer "gimp-gap-2.2.0-set-up.zip" here but that is a obsolete version that will not work with gimp 2.4.)
