The backgroundfile is any texture image that is as large or larger than the image to be processed. Typically the backgroundfile should be converted to grayscale before using.

PURPOSE: To apply a classic vintage effect to an image.

DESCRIPTION: VINTAGE1 applies a classic blue-green vintage effect to an image. The vintage effect includes: noise, lines, various vignette types and various border types.

ARGUMENTS:

-b brightness ... BRIGHTNESS is the vintage brightness. Values are integers between -100 and 100. The default=10.

-c contrast ... CONTRAST is the vintage contrast. Values are integers between -100 and 100. The default=-20.

-s vignetteshape ... VIGNETTESHAPE is the vignette shape. Choices are: roundrectangle (r), horizontal (h), vertical (v) or none (n). The default=roundrectangle.

-r vignetterounding ... VIGNETTEROUNDING is the vignette rounding percent for the roundrectangle shape only. Values are integers between 0 and 50. The default=50.

-l vignettelighten ... VIGNETTELIGHTEN is the vignette ligntening. Values are integers between 0 and 100. The default=0.

-N noiseamt ... NOISEAMT is the amount of noise added. Values are integers between 0 and 100. The default=30.

-L verticallines ... VERTICALLINES is the intensity of vertical lines added. Values are integers between 0 and 100. The default=25.

-B verticalbands ... VERTICALBANDS is the intensity of vertical bands added. Values are integers between 0 and 100. The default=30.

-M backgroundmix ... BACKGROUNDMIX is the amount of background mixing with the image. Values are integers between 0 and 100. The default=35.

-T bordertype ... BORDERTYPE is the image border type. The choices are: none (n), torn (t) or rounded (r). The default=none.

-W borderwidth ... BORDERWIDTH is the image border width only for bordertype=torn and round. Values are integers between 0 and 100. The default=5.

-R borderrounding ... BORDERROUNDING is the image border rounding percent only for bordertype=rounded. Values are integers between 0 and 50. The default=10.

-C bordercolor ... BORDERCOLOR is the image border color. Any valid IM color is allowed. The default=white.

What the script does is as follows:

  • Blends the input image with blue-green tinted version
  • Modifies black to a dark blue color
  • Adds Gaussian noise to the image
  • Adds random vertical lines to the image
  • Adds random vertical banding to the image
  • Composites a background image
  • Adds a vignette
  • Adds a border
  • Writes the output
