Shadows&Highlight

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.

Layer Effects

This is a series of scripts that implement various layer effects:

  • Drop Shadow
  • Inner Shadow
  • Outer Glow
  • Inner Glow
  • Bevel and Emboss
  • Satin
  • Color Overlay
  • Gradient Overlay
  • Pattern Overlay
  • Stroke

Some effects can have contours (a.k.a. curves) and noise added to them. Effects can either be applied on a separate layer, or be merged into the active layer (which in some cases gives better results).

Tested with GIMP 2.4.2.

Shadows and Highlights

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.
