GIMP Powertoning Script

EDIT October 9, 2008: This script has been tested in GIMP 2.6 (the newest stable version of GIMP) and it works fine with no modifications.

Based on suggestions by Insanity-Prevails (insanity-prevails.deviantart.c…, I have modified the script to allow the layers to be merged if the user so desires. Thanks for the suggestions, IP!

This script is based on a tutorial presented by gimptalk.com member, lylejk. You can view the tutorial here: (www.gimptalk.com/forum/topic/P….
Stop by and say "hi" to lylejk and tell him thanks for the great tutorial and allowing it to be put into script format.

The script takes an existing image's active layer and makes two copies: setting the Middle copy to Saturation and the Top copy to Value. The Original Layer is then filled with your choice of color. Gives a very dramatic effect and, depending on the image, somewhat resembles an Infrared Photograph.

Just download the scm file and place it in your GIMP scripts folder (ie....C:Program FilesGIMP-2.4sharegimp2.0scripts)

Then, go to the main GIMP window (not the image window) and choose the Xtns Menu > Script-FU > Refresh Scripts and it should appear in the Image Window under the Filters Menu > Decor > Power Toning....

This is my very first script so please be gentle!

Enjoy!

Hi Art (what a nice name)
I downloades your script but somehow, it doesn't work. When I try to refresh the script (in Script FU) I get an error message which says something like : failed on invalid imput arguments. Maybe it's no more available, I don't know. I've done everything like you explain but it doesn't want to work. Do you know what I can do????
Thanks a lot for your help

Uhmmm....where exactly do you download it from? I can't see a file anywhere.

Click on the download link (which is probably on the left side of your screen) and *hopefully* you'll either be given an option to open/save the file OR it will open up in your browser window as a bunch of text. If it opens as a bunch of text, that's really the script and you can click on File > Save As in the browser window and save it a text file, but give it an ".scm" extension. Save it to your GIMP scripts folder, which is somewhere like this: C:\Users\UserName\.gimp-2.6\scripts. If you still have trouble, let me know and I'll help you out.

Wonderful gallery you have! Gorgeous!

fence-post's avatar
I've looked through my post and the script itself and can't find that statement. Can you show me where I said that. I have no clue what it means. Sorry.

It's For Your Toning Script Here I Copied The Phrase For You... I Not Sure What This Means B/c I Would Like To Try This Out :3 (the first sentence is what im having issues with)

Then, go to the main GIMP window (not the image window) and choose the Xtns Menu > Script-FU > Refresh Scripts and it should appear in the Image Window under the Filters Menu > Decor > Power Toning....



sorry for the inconvience....

umm...when I tryied to download it, it just gave me a page with text...what should I do...

The script is actually a text file, so that part is correct. Just save it to your desktop and then copy/paste it into your GIMP scripts folder. Let me know if you need additional help.

Sorry for the delay in responding. I hope you were able to get it to work and it provided the look you were after. If not, thanks for trying it out and let me know if there's some way I can improve it.
