OK this helps. I was trying to use it on a gray scale image. > > > I am running Gentoo Linux 2004.3 on an amd64 machine configured as a > > x86_64 machine (IE. 64 bit code).

I got the following error message about 2/3 of the way through the process: "GIMP Message Plug-in "greycstoration" (/home/heng/.gimp-2.2/plug-ins/greycstoration) requested invalid drawable (killing)" The image was not a small one (2650x2309) and this message was after about 6 minutes of processing. I used the default settings that the tool opens up with. So I am not sure if this is a general bug or an amd64 specific problem. Also I don't think the preview was working as I could not see any difference no matter how I set the controls. Most of the images I would use something like on are older photos that I have scanned from large format negatives as gray scale images. These tend to be large images (15 to 20 megapixel). I have been using Neat Image on Windows for this and it can take 10 to 15 minutes to process a single image. So I don't mind this taking a while to process the image if it finishes and does a good job. You might want to have a look at Neat Image to get some ideas about how to implement your user interface. They have a somewhat cripple demo version that you can download for free. It has a step that, with the help of the user, analyzes the image and gives a starting point for fine adjustments. It is by far the most powerful tool I have used for this to date. If you can come close to this level of power with a GIMP plug-in that would be one less thing I need Windows for and I would be one step closer to not needing Windows at all.
