Drop Shadow Advanced

Gimp 2.8 required!

This plugin produces a complex three-part drop shadow from a selected layer. Ideal for light-on-light text (or anything else).

Features:
* Super-smooth shadow algorithm
* Three customizable shadow layers (umbra, penumbra and veil)
* Works with both alpha and masks, shadows are created as masks
* All layers (including the source) are put into a separate group, so no mess created

Dodge & Burn layer

This simple script add a new layer on top of the image filled with neutral grey and in overlay mode. You can use this layer with the dodge and burn tool to work on shadows and highlights without destroying datas.

New version with random Hue Lightness and Saturation. (gimp_pile_photo_hls.zip)

Shadow Glow

This is a simple script to invert the brightness of only the dark sections of a picture, without changing the colour. You can change the threshold for the script, so that it creates a brighter picture, or one that isn't as bright. The effect is applied on a separate layer above the active one, so you can delete it or apply a layer mask to it if you want.

Updated 2011/11/28: I've modified the script to have it work without any error messages with at least Gimp 2.7.4

and the current picture itself with a border and shadow around it as foreground

The second version of the script add a dialog box that let you modify the blur ratio as well as the shadow ratio.
I also added 2 toggle button to control the de-saturation of the fore/background.

creates a shadow (transparent) version of the image

i use this script for colorizing an img with CSS/HTML
i.e. I display the shadow img (in the HTML) and change the bg color with CSS

if u use the original colors from the picture u should get almost the same picture
u can play with the black-point/white-point values for less/more gray...
though it doesn't change much...

it meant to be use with uni-color img, but works with any img.
