GIMP FX Foundry examples

Below are examples of the effects provided by the GIMP FX Foundry package for the GIMP. All options in the effects were left at their default values, though there is more often than not a large number of options to tweak. The purpose of this page is not to show an in depth analysis of each effect, rather to show the range of effects provided by the GIMP FX foundry package. The original photos were rectangular and have been cropped to squares (using the excellent David's Batch Processor for the GIMP).

The first image in each row is the original photo; the second the effect on the whole photo; the thrid is a zoomed section of the second photo.
