Five nice and useful plugins for Gimp

Filed under
GIMP

One of the big advantages of The GIMP is the fact that it can be easily extended with new functionality. So with sufficient addons (particularly plugins), you can achieve a lot of functionality found in other editors. Last month i did show a collection of useful plugins for Gimp and today i will show you again another five nice ones that hope will be useful for you:

1- Burnt Paper

This plugin creates a burnt-paper effect. It uses your selection as the original outline of the paper. It then creates an old looking piece of paper that is burnt around the edges and overlays the current layer atop this paper.

2-Batch color contrast

The script enables you to do two image adjustment operations to all images in a folder:

1. Individually adjust the color balance in shadows, midtones and highlights

2. Adjusting the Brightness and Contrast
