GIMP Extensions for Windows 2.8.20141126
Get more from GIMP with this great pack of plugins, scripts and more

GIMP is a great graphics editor, which can be made even better with the addition of a few extensions. Normally this takes a while, as the program has no built-in way to find or install them - but you could always just install GIMP Extensions, which adds more than 50 in a single operation.

GIMP Paint Studio equips the program with additional brushes, patterns, palettes and more.

Plugins include Adaptive Contrast Enhancement, BIMP (Batch Image Manipulation Plugin), Cartoonizer, Focus Blur, GIMP Mask, Image Registration, Liquid Rescale, PAL & VHS, and Save for Web.

Bundled Scripts include AnimStack, Fake HDR Effect, GIMP FX Foundry and Split Studio 3. There's more file format support (APNG, DDS, JPEG XR, WebP). And there's even animation support via GIMP Animation Package. (The full list is available at the GIMP Extensions page.)

You don't have to install all of these, fortunately. If you have some already, or just want to decide for yourself, then the installer allows you to select the extensions you need, and the ones you really don't. And whatever you've selected will then be installed with a click.

Recent changes include:

Version 2.8.20141126 (2014-11-26)
    •Updated Plug-in G'MIC to version 1.6.0.2
        ◦This version fixes libstdc++-6.dll issue with GIMP 2.8.14

Version 2.8.20140902 (2014-09-02)
    •Updated Plug-in BIMP to version 1.11
    •Updated Plug-in G'MIC to version 1.6.0.0
        ◦G'MIC is now installed in GIMP installation dir again, and both 32 and 64bit are included, since I was unable to find any issues any more
    •Updated Scripts package from gimphelp.org to 41st Release (02/20/2014)

Verdict:

An excellent (and regularly updated) collection of powerful plugins and scripts

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
