Silicosaur PhotoFX

Silicosaur PhotoFX is a collection of script-fu macros for GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) to easily simulate development methods and film types used by photographers of pre-digital age.

Tone mapping

It reduces global contrast in images while increasing local contrast and shadow/highlight detail. Use this to make your images "pop."

Translucent border

Creates an outer border of the image with reduced brightness and 2 inner colours.

Wavelet denoise

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.
