urban acid” is a pop­u­lar Photoshop plu­g­in by Steve Almas, cir­ca 2005 [src] that cre­ates a bright, sat­u­rat­ed effect [exam­ples] that some Gimp users are try­ing to repro­duce. [dis­cus­sion]


There are a few ways to do this.

There’s an urban-acid plu­g­in in the GIMP reg­istry that sim­u­lates a kind of bright, cross-processed effect. Anoth­er GIMP script tries more to emu­late the Photoshop effect of the same name. [src]

You can also repro­duce the effect by going through the var­i­ous steps out­lined in tos/swobodin/”>swobodin’s tos/swobodin/1261325306/”>tutor­i­al on Flickr, which does not require installing any new plug-ins.
