Film Emulation

Among all features available in G'MIC, our Film Emulation filters are able to apply various pre-defined color presets on your images. Most of those 300+ presets have been designed by Patrick David, in order to emulate the look of analog films. They have a dedicated section in the open-source G'MIC plug-in for GIMP, so you can apply all these easily in GIMP.

Below, you can navigate through the different proposed color presets and see how they modify the colors of some sample images. You can also download each color preset separately as its corresponding HaldCLUT file (in .png format), to use it in other softwares that support this feature.

The trademarked names which may appear in the filenames of the HaldCLUT images are there for informational purposes only. They serve only to inform the user which film stock the given HaldCLUT image is designed to approximate. As there is no way to convey this information other than by using the trademarked name, we believe this constitutes fair use.
