Blue and Sepia toning using GIMP
Category: Digital Room

I'd been trying to use GIMP for Sepia toning and stumbled across this article in, which talks about doing Sepia toning using GIMP. Though, sepia can be easily done using the Old photo built-in script available in GIMP dialog : Script-Fu : Decor : Old Photo, the procedure outlined in the article clearly outlines how Sepia toning is done. But, the best part in this procedure is the fact that Sepia (Red=162, Green=138, Blue=101) is not the only tone / color which may be used here. Various shades of blue (especially for pics with water), green (especially for pics wth greenery) and a lot of other colors may be used too. In this picture, taken in August 2007, near Ponnani river, using my Canon Powershot S2IS, I used GIMP and a blueish toning (R=0, G=128, B=255) for this result.

The original and the sepia toned versions are below:
