In this GIMP 2.10.2 tutorial, I’ll show you how to color tone your images using gradient maps. This is a simple technique with fantastic results, allowing you to change the mood of your images with just a few steps. I use some preset gradients found in GIMP to create this effect, while also showing you how to create the effect using your own custom gradient.

This tutorial is great for beginner photo editors wanting to improve their image compositions and photographers of all skill levels.
