Texturize by Area by Colour

Summary
Filter to implement the creation on a NEW IMAGE (dimension is a user option)
starting from an RGB* input image
where colours are quantized using the temporary conversion of the image
from RGB to Indexed (nr of colours is a user option)
each color area is filled with a SELECTED SET OF TEXTURES (user option).
Filter has been created on the basis of Gimp-chat thread “Let’s carve some wood”.
Even if the main use will be with patterns in wood, it has been generalized
so that you can use any set of textures you like, patterns or gradients
(for this reason “wood” does not appear in the filter’s name)

History: rel.
1.0 (initial, posted in a thread of Gimp-chat)
1.1 (development, not published)
ADDED WHITE BALANCE PREPROCESS (optional)
ADDED CURVE PREPROCESS (optional)
CHANGED SOME DEFAULT LAYER MODES
ALLOWED CREATION OF AN OUTCOME WITH SAME DIMENSIONS AS ORIGINAL
CHANGED DEFAULT FILTERING SUBSTRING FOR PATTERNS/GRADIENTS NAMES TO “None” (was “MyWood”)
ADDED THE POSSIBILITY TO HAVE AREAS SEPARATOR LOOK LIKE NEEDLEPOINTS
SUPPRESSED THE SEPARATOR WHEN AREA IS TOO SMALL
(chisel/carve remains but only with extreme roundness values: 0.1 or 1.0)
1.1.1 (this release, published under Gimpscripts)
fixed three bugs
ADDED THE POSSIBILITY TO HAVE NO AREAS SEPARATORS

Dependencies:
Extrn Filters : (Gimp) script_fu_chisel (by Rob Antonishen)
available under Gimp-chat Scripts&Plug-ins as “Chisel Or Carve”
(Gimp) python_fu_WhiteBalanceStretch (by myself)
available under Gimp-chat Scripts&Plug-ins as “White Balance Stretch”
(Gimp) python_fu_Stretch_RGB_colours (by myself)
available under Gimp-chat Scripts&Plug-ins as “Stretch RGB Colors”

G’MIC 1.7.7
Python as included in Gimp

Dependencies:
– G’MIC : Freaky B&W
– Gimp : none (std configuration)

Description
Flow implemented to get the final result:

1. create a new image with dimension chosen by the user
2. create a BG as a ciopy of the source drawable
3. duplicate and apply G’MIC Freaky B&W; set mode=Dodge
4. duplicate, invert and apply Gimp Erode (twice)
5. create a new layer from visible; set mode=Multiply
6. duplicate the Bg and set it on top; set mode=Burn (my choice)
7. create a new layer from visible; set mode=Normal; name it SketchBURN
8. set visibility off on SketchBURN
9. change mode on duplicated BG; set it to Color
10. create a new layer from visible; set mode=Normal; name it SketchCOLOR
11. set visibility off on SketchCOLOR
12. change mode on duplicated BG; set it to Overlay
13. create a new layer from visible; set mode=Normal; name it SketchOVERLAY
14. if chosen by the user, create and display 3 images, using the 3 layers:
SketchBURN, SketchCOLOR, SketchOVERLAY

Rod Style Details

Filter to create a NEW image applying ROD’s style for detail effects to the INPUT DRAWABLE

(more)

Flow implemented to get the final result:

1. save current context
2. prepare the new image, copying the source drawable into the new BG
add noise, if chosen by the user (useful on people images)
3. duplicate the BG, name it LumaInvertedLayer, SOFTLIGHT with opacity=100%
4. apply Gimp Luma Invert (script-fu-invert-YUV) on the above layer
5. new from visible, name it Visible1Layer, NORMAL with opacity=100%
6. duplicate the Visible1Layer, name it NeonLayerLayer, GRAIN_MERGE with opacity=100%
apply Gimp Neon then apply Gimp Unsharp Mask (user parameter for details level)
7. duplicate the BG on top, and call it BGonTop, SOFTLIGHT with opacity 100%
8. flatten the new image if requested

DIEGO_Mod_LCS

This filter allows to enhance at the same time Luminosity, Contrast and Saturation of an Image.
The user sets up the “target” values and the filter can:
– either use an auto-adjustment based on the distance of current values from target
– or approaching the target in a “strong”, “normal” or “weak” action (user choice)

It may be used as a standalone filter as well as an ancillary preliminary step in other filters.

It makes:
1. Use of the Histogram mean value for the Luminosity
2. Use of the Histogram standard deviation for the Contrast
3. Use of the Saturation component in the HSV Mode of the Image

remove-overpainted-colours.py

This filter has been written upon the assumption that a user likes to restore the original gray tones on an image which – originally gray – was over painted by watercolor light colours. It takes in input an RGB* image and replaces all bytes which do not have R=G=B with the max val (R, G, B), on the color theory basis which states that any overlayed colour does not add a colour but removes the complementary ones.
