Color Grading Ver.1.7.5

 Color Grading []

Author: John Lakkas [johnlak]
In menu: Colors / Color Grading...
Author's website here.

One of the few Python plugins (gtk) that offers a preview (even in two modes: Size: L or S).
Additionally, you can save your selected settings (a file is created : colorgrading.profiles in the plug-ins directory) and load the selected one.
Color Grading plug-in, creates a cine image look based on user input.
For a contemporary image look, use complimentary colors in shadows and highlights.
It is also preferable to be used on a somewhat neutral image (ie pre white balanced) for best control of the final result.
If it's not a raw image balance it before with Color Balance 2.

The Color Grading plug-in is also available in GMIC

In GMIC you will find it under: Colors, Color Grading.
