Image Check

This plug-in creates a transparent layer on top of the active layer highlighting the parts
of the image with maximum local contrast, thus the parts witch are in perfect focus.
It also show which parts of the image are unrecoverable under,- and overexposed.
Finally, if there is transparency in the layer(s), the plug-in will indicate areas
with no image information.
It is optional to sample only the active layer or all visible layers.
If the image contains a lot of detail (or noise), completion will take longer.

Muted Colors

This is my first script-fu plugin. It is an adaptation of 3 different methods for muting the colors in an image.  

1. A simple copy of the existing layer, desaturating it with luminosity, and setting opacity over the original.

2. One of my methods for producing similar results as described by the originator (Flickr user Tennessee_Gator):

EZ Perspective

Turn this:

original image, taken by camera tilted up

…into this:

perspective corrected image, rectilinear, correct proportions

BW Colorizer

This extension allows you to add dominants to your black and white (or colour) photos.
In the "Layer mask" mode the dominant is balanced with a mask, such that your whites remains whites.
The homepage is in Italian but you can see some screenshots and examples there. Please note also that the plugin is in English.

LAB Sharpen

This script does LAB sharpening using the unsharp mask in the luminance (L) layer. It decomposes the image into LAB layers, sharpens the luminance layer (using the supplied settings), and then recomposes the image. The interface is the same as the unsharp mask (radius, amount, threshold), but the filter is only applied to the luminance layer.

EvenTone

This plugin evens the tone of an image. It useful in photography for correcting weird light, and can hide skin blemishes.

The layers are not merged to allow opacity adjustments after the filter has been run.

Usually for a photograph, you'll want to use either the sharpen layer, or the "Soft Light" layer. Using both can make colors look too saturated, and has a posterizing effect.

For extra sharpness, change the sharpen layer mode to grain merge, but be ready to lessen the opacity, as the effect is quite striking.
