Meet the GIMP #84: The 3 Letter Acronym Show

This week I start with a short introduction into autostereoscopic images, see two posts below. Then I  cover the GEGL operation “c2g”, which converts acouloured image into a monochrome image with a lot of noise or other other effects. It’s a “try out” thing - up to now I have not found documentation. Perhaps one has to look into the source. Be warned - some parameters can kill the program.

Then Joseph tells us. how easy it is to make “HDR” images. It’s not as complicated as I feared. I’ll try it soon myself. The website Joseph pointed me to is here.
