This Color Replacer filter performs color replacement functions. The function is similar to Photoshop's Replace Color command, however, this plugin is more flexible since you can select the source and target colors independently.

Color Replacer is a useful and easy to use plugin which allows you to tint gray areas with one arbitrary color. This can be useful for recovering the color in overexposed areas.

The Contrast Mask plugin enhances images with too much contrast by employing a technique known as contrast masking.

One frequent issue with contrast masking is the formation of halos around dark objects. The Contrast Mask has a specific built-in algorithm for detecting and suppressing potential halos.

This filter is designed to compensate the hue shift in overexposed images, a phenomenon which occurs due to color clipping in RGB space. Overexposed areas often suffer a hue shift towards yellow, cyan or magenta, whichever is closest to the original hue.

For example, skin tones turn yellowish when the flash was too close to the model. This is because the red channel - the dominant color in skin tones - is clipped resulting in too much green and, to a lesser extent, blue in proportion. Likewise the sky in otherwise correctly exposed images sometimes may look greener than in reality. In this case it is the blue channel which is clipped, leaving too much green.

Hue Restorer will find overexposed areas in an image and let you choose the hue to be restored. Correctly exposed regions will not be altered. Easy-to-use...

The Pano Warp plugin lets you perform pixel transformations used in panorama stitching.

Pano Warp gives you full control, but that also means you have to play around a bit. You can use it for preprocessing single frames and compose your panorama the pedestrian way (e.g. with Photoshop using layers).

Pano Warp is useful to provide an option to save and load up to five different parameter settings. A simple facility to compensate barrel distortion and vignetting also comes in handy.

Pano Warp also lets you switch between projections or re-adjust the horizon height. Pano Warp lets you resize and reposition the output image. You can also choose to display grid lines both before and after transformation.

Sometimes you cannot choose the optimum angle to take a picture. If the object is essentially planar (e.g. a painting on a wall) or the angle is not off by much then there is hope that you can correct the perspective afterwards.

The opposite may also be of interest if you want to make a composition and place objects at different angles, e.g. pep up screenshots for a brochure.

The Perspective plugin lets you carry out both active ("Modify") and passive ("Rectify") transformations. You can rotate the image around three axes, then reposition and resize it. Grid lines can be displayed both before and after transformation.

Pinocchio is mainly a fun tool to produce image distortions by mouse strokes. You can use it for caricatures and such. Just click on the preview image and drag in whichever direction, then use the sliders for fine tuning. This version lets you perform multiple mouse strokes without having to exit and reinvoke the plugin.

This is an implementation of the well-known time waster. The usage is pretty intuitive, just click on one of the slides surrounding the empty place and it will slide in. You can use it with any input image, it will not be altered after the game.

Vignetting is the brighness fallof at the corners of an image. This is a rather universal phenomenon, however it is more pronounced for wide-angle lenses.

Vignetting can be very disturbing if you want to combine a set of images to a panorama (panorama stitching). You want to compensate that unwanted effect on the individual frames before stitching. On the other hand, vignetting is sometimes deliberately used as a nostalgic style element in portray photography.

Vignette Corrector offers you a number of controls to adjust the size and brightness of the vignette. In addition you can modify the tint and saturation. I found this useful for scanned negatives, where I could not compensate vignetting with brightness modifications alone. I have also implemented a 3x3 mirror tiled view to enhance the vignette visibility....
