Five nice and useful plugins for Gimp

Filed under

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

    While Mesa 17.3 is imminent and should be released as stable within the next few days, Mesa 17.2.6 is being prepped for release as the current point release.
  • 43 More AMDGPU DC Patches Hit The Streets
    While the massive AMDGPU DC infrastructure has been merged for Linux 4.15, the flow of improvements to this display code continues and it looks like the next few kernel cycles at least could be quite busy on the AMD front.
  • A Prototype Of The Vulkan Portability Initiative: Low-Level 3D To Vulkan / D3D12 / Metal
    A Mozilla engineer has put out a prototype library in working on the Vulkan Portability Initiative for allowing low-level 3D graphics support that's backed by Vulkan / Direct3D 12 / Metal. With Apple sticking to their own Metal graphics API and Direct3D 12 still being the dominant graphics API on Windows 10, The Khronos Group has been working towards better 3D portability for where Vulkan may not be directly supported by the OS/drivers or otherwise available. They've been working to target a subset of the Vulkan API that can be efficiently mapped to these other native graphics APIs and to have the libraries and tooling for better compatibility and code re-use of these different graphics APIs.
