Re: imitate any photo's tone

Hi vivi: welcome to Retouch Pro. If you are using Photoshop, there are various ways to do this. This tutorial shows the easy way to do it, although not the best. It is a youtube tutorial, and in case you live in China you cannot get access to it, if that's the case you can write again here I'm sure you'll get help by some members. Anyway here is the link:

Re: imitate any photo's tone

There's been a G'MIC preset for color transference. Not sure if that's what you are talking about.

Nice to see you again Lyle.

Is this a Gimp plug in? looks like it though.

Re: imitate any photo's tone

Lyle: Please, a quick crash course in Gimp and G'MIC.

I installed both, can access G'MIC and dig down to "Transfer color" , however, I only see one image there, I have two images, each one on its own layer. or should I open each in separate document. Either way, this thing is not letting me , or at least, not given an option for "source" and "destination". Thanks in advance.

Re: imitate any photo's tone

Your main image needs to be on the bottom layer and the image that you want matched needs to be on top. You then need to set the Layer property to Active ad Below (see screenshot). Hope that helps Aladdin.

Re: imitate any photo's tone

Thanks Lyle, that helped.

Wow, the results are amazing, just like you mentioned on Flicker, nothing comes close, not even PS.

Humm! been reading your posts about Gimp for many years now, this is the first time I actually took the plunge to install it, got to spend some time with it.

Thanks for help and for the plug-in, it does amazing job with color match. I like the idea of having an option to also copy luminosity.

Alan

Re: imitate any photo's tone

I still use PS to process my Leica RAWs Alan. My philosophy is that you can't have enough editing programs. Some do things better then others (like PS w.r.t. handling RAW files) and others are easier for me to use (like GIMP is to me; helps that I've been using GIMP for over 9 years; lol). You may or may not be able to do everything in either programs, but between the two (in my case; others may even use more; lol) I usually can get the job done. Glad G'MIC came to your rescue. I pretty much use G'MIC for all my edits (both artistic and photographic). The toolset is extremely wide. Been a lot of talk to port G'MIC to PS, but so far, no takers. If you know an 8bf programmer who might be interested, that would be cool. I use a lot of PS filters in GIMP; why not use a filter that originally was for GIMP for PS? G'MIC really was designed to be platform independent and can even work in higher bit images (of course the gui for GIMP only works with 8-bit; unfortunate. It would be cool to have a gui that can work on 16-bit or higher images; hint, hint). The command line interface, of course, can work with all images, but I like a gui, so, though I dabbled with the command prompt version, I pretty much stick with the GIMP gui.
