exposure-blend : A GIMP plug-in for contrast blending 3 bracketed images. Download: The Problem Many typical photographic scenes contain far more dynamic range than modern digital cameras can record in a single exposure. Digital cameras are actually slightly worse in this respect than film cameras, since they are very unforgiving to the slightest over-exposure.
In this HDR tutorial you’ll find out how to create HDR photos using Qtpfsgui and GIMP (you can use Photoshop as well). Both Qtpfsgui and GIMP are free, open source and available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. With free Qtpfsgui you can get more impressive HDR photos than with paid HDR software competitors.

Erasing to Alpha October 28, 2010 By Akkana Peck You've been using GIMP for cleaning up your photos -- but now you have a picture of a kitten or a bird or your new smartphone that you want to paste into another picture.

In this post I have attempted to collect the best tutorials of GIMP, in my view, around the web. 1- Turn a 40 year old to 20 year old lady This is by far the most interesting tutorial in this category.
There are many different ways to enhance the colors of your photos using the Gimp. In this tutorial, I will show you the basic process for color enhancement, then I will show you differences in each method so you can decide which way is best for you. When I did the tutorial on editing photos for wedding enhancement , I got a great suggestion in the comments that instead of using saturation for color enhancement, I could use LAB decomposition. I played around with it a bit and it has some interesting results.

This plugin aims at resizing pictures non uniformly while preserving their features, i.e. avoiding distortion of the important parts. For example, you may turn a normal picture to panoramic without stretching the content. The plugin supports manual feature selection, and can also be used to remove portions of the picture in a consistent way.

In this section there are some tutorial videos. They should be watched in high definition (at least 480p, but 720p and full screen are recommended). There's no audio, but there are captions explaining what's going on, so make sure to have them activated. In some cases the captions are quite fast-paced, so be prepared to use the pause button a lot. All the videos were made using version 0.7.0 of the plugin and GIMP 2.6.8 running under Ubuntu Linux 10.4. They are not accelerated nor edited in any other way.
Really, this tutorial will be about masking: taking a photograph and separating a foreground subject from the background, for the purposes of doing something interesting with it. This kind of subject may prove unsatisfying, because when you sit down to write a tutorial, you're free to pick whatever nice clean image you want as your subject. In the real world, clients come to you with fuzzy, blurry, low-res JPGs that have been saved numerous times, with a whole circus of noise in the background. So that's how these masking tutorials make it look so easy: we cheat. If you find this work to be slow, frustrating, and tedious, you're right: masking is just like that, and takes some skill to pull off.
