    Free ImageSkill 8bf plugin

    Magic Enhancer Lite: http://www.imageskill.com/magicenhan...cenhancer.html

    You can essentially improve your photos adjusting its lightness, contrast and color balance. Magic Enhancer is perfect for enhancement image and photo with lack of lightness or uneven illumination, silhouetted images on dark background. Convenient color temperature control allows fixing color balance defects easily.

    Outliner: http://www.imageskill.com/outliner/outliner.html

    It gives a user the easiest way to get image contouring with desired quality. This plug-in just picks out various edges making them more expressive. The user can easily manage range of edge appearance in the processed image getting fantastic artistic effects.

      Thanks, Dmitry.
      To me, especially the outliner looks quite promising.

        update:

        i downlaoded the whole plugin-package (which is available at irfanview.com) as a zip-file. Then i installed it. Well als went fine..

        - installed all the stuff - well i guess that i had success -

        now i can see in the pull-down-menu the option


        - effects ->

        Adobe 8bf filters

        Well - but i was adviced to install the GML Matting filters: I grabbed them and installed them
        http://research.graphicon.ru/image-p...l-matting.html

        installed the whole stuff

        but if i want to activate the GML Matting-Filter i get no restults. i open an image - then i choose effects in the image-menu. i take the ADOBE 8bf filters: but the only options i have are the following filters


        1. PopArt
        2. Harrys Filter 3.0


        what should i do now - i have no glue.. !?


        look forward to hear from you
        many thanks in advance

        joo

          More graphic stuff there, like tutorials, PSP tubes and fonts.
          Hi Sam_Zen
          I tried to get the Blur filter from that punkinstuff site, but the link was to a filter called Smooth.8bf which does not seem to be recognized by either Adobe or Filter factory. Any thoughts? I really wanted to know if it was worth persevering with.
          I needed a blur effect because the one included in Irfanview is so useless IMO. The gradient blur that Matera recommends (pppgradblur.8bf) is very good for much of what I need but I was looking for a really easy to use one (like the one in Faststone Image Viewer) that I could teach others to use.

            Maybe you should start to install them now.

                  Richard Roseman has a new website

                  Read the descriptions of available plugins here

                  Quite a nice collection. Not only effects, but generators as well.

                    I did get that Blur filter to work eventually. Skippybox was right. It did need those extra DLLs installed. It is called Smart blur, but is not particularly so. It has the same problem as the built in IrfanView blur effect in that the adjustment range is related to pixels not to image size. Whereas a Gaussian blur over 99 pixels radius may be effective on small images, the effect on my 10MP images is barely visible. I have to apply it 20 or more times at maximum setting to get a usable effect. So it seems I will still have to go to Faststone for a decent all over blur.

                      Interesting site, built around this one free filter so far, is http://sites.google.com/site/clifframes/ciecam02plugin

                      Good for converting colour temparatures, visualizing the effects behind the theory and maybe more.

                        8bf plugins can be applied to selections

                        I just noticed that as of version 4.32 8bf plugins can now be applied to selections.

                        It wasn't possible in the 4.30 version. Strangely enough it isn't mentioned in the change log thread or on the Irfanview Website's History of Changes.

                          The IrfanView onboard effects browser is the best I've seen in a free photo editor. Butif you want more and will pay the price, I am very happy with Filters Unlimited

                          http://www.icnet.de/index.html

                          The "fre" version is a non-"apply" demo that shows what 150 of them will do The working version is 350 filters of various types PUS, filter editing, organizing, preset making and filter creation. All for about $40 USD

                          The integration with IrfanView 4.33 was very smooth since you essentially just put the whole Filters Unlimited folder in the plugins folder and just ues Image>Effects>Filters Unlimited. Apparently you can distribute the filters you make to other Fulters Unlimited users, Plas it appears to have some kind of import/convert program for other filters

                            Another nice possibility for selectively applying filters (e.g. to non-rectangular areas) works as follows:

                            (1) When displaying the image you want to edit, press F12 for IrfanPaint. Let the IrfanPaint tool bar sit there, perhaps move it to the side of the screen, so it isn't in the way.

                            (2) Now click on the Irfanview window title to put the focus back on your image.

                            (3) Optionally make a selection to which you want to apply a filter.

                            (4) Press CTRL+K and do your filter thing: blurring, sharpening, whatever ...

                            (5) When you're done applying the filter, close the Irfanview filter dialogue.

                            (6) Re-activate the IrfanPaint toolbar and choose the eraser tool.

                            (7) With the right mousebutton you can now "paint back" the original image over parts of the image affected by the filter, thus selectively undoing the filter.
