Hi everyone!

Follow this step by step tutorial to create Dragan effect! Don’t you know what Dragan effect is? Its name comes from an artist and photographer called Andrzej Dragan, who gives a disturbing and dramatic aspect to his images. Today we will try to reproduce his technique, so you will need to install the plugin G’MIC (see the guide in the section “Edit Gimp“).

2

Then click on Colors—>Brightness contrast and configure the settings below:

After that, click on Filters—>Blur—>Gaussiana and set blur range to 20.

Duplicate the last  image you got, click on Colors—>Saturation Tone  and set saturation level to -50.

We have almost finished! Select one of the image copied at the beginning of this tutorial and click on Filters—>G’MIC—>Black and White—>Pencil, configure the options below:
