Traditional Orton

This script creates images via the exact process invented by Michael Orton. You need two exposures of a scene, one at an exposure value of +1, and one at an exposure value of +2.

More information is available at: my blog.

These are most easily obtained by taking a single raw photo of a scene and then producing two JPG images with appropriate exposures.

Lomo-Gimp

Lomo-Gimp tries to give your digital pictures the warmth of those taken by an old rangefinder analog camera. Think of it as a Kodak Instamatic or a Lomo Holga faking effect. It enhances contrast and saturation, and applies a light and a dark overlay, trying to emulate incorrectness in exposition. Please note this does nothing to emulate the chromatic aberration peculiar in pictures taken using a real Lomo.

Pseudo Tone Fixer

This script tries to fix the tone of a photo taken with wrong exposure. In some landscape photos, it can have a nice effect of enhancing the colors.

The general idea is to produce different copies of the image at different gamma levels, then applying simple tone mapping techniques to produce a vibrant photo.

The script allows the user to control the number of copies by setting the lowest and highest gamma setting then the interval. For example lowest=20, highest=170, interval=10 results to (170-20)/10 = 15 copies with increasing gamma level from 0.2 to 1.7. Play around!

Amazing Circles

Amazing Circle technique with advanced options. Includes options to choose border colour (or calculate from border average), border size and vignetting effect, whirl/pinch distortion, alternate circle method, plus optional drop shadow & shading.

Amazing circles

Turns any image into an amazing circle.
This script has three settings:
1. Circle depth, set the circle depth percentage when doing the distortion.
2. Surround colour, pick the colour that goes around the outside of circle.
3. Crop, when and if the image is cropped into a square.
