Lomography Effect in #GIMP

Hey guys!

I just tried a very very easy and quickly done lomography effect on my photos. Everybody can do it in just a sec.

1. Open your image in GIMP.

2.  Select Colors -> Curves and make adjustments to change the colors.  Click on the Channel arrow tab to change channels. Then do an ‘S’ curves on all channels (value, red, green) except for the blue channel. Please see a sample of an ‘S’ curve below.

Then do the opposite ‘S’ curve for the blue channel as shown below.

3.  Duplicate your layer. Then select Colors -> Map -> Gradient Map (make sure your foreground and background colors are black and white). Then set the layer mode to Overlay and lessen the opacity to 50%.

4.  Add a new layer and name it ‘border’. Then select the blend tool with FG to transparent gradient, shape: radial. Then click on the arrow to reverse the shades.  Stroke it across the image as shown below.

Then set the opacity to 50%. And we’re done!!!
