Brightness and Color Matching
I have two images, taken in the same location. Because of slight changes to camera position or other things, they're not the same. The color and brightness are slightly off.

How can I match them? I'm especially concerned about the color.

Thanks.

RE: Brightness and Color Matching
Surely it will very much depend on the images, if one is taken in sunlight and the next taken in adjacent shadow, it will be a real problem.

A couple of thoughts.
Try all/any of the 'auto' functions on both images to try and equalise them. Start with the 'Colors' -> 'Level' and then 'Auto', down at the bottom of the dialog. Then maybe some of the Auto funtions in the 'Color' menu.

A possibility, but not Gimp, is Hugin, don't have Hugin installed here (use AutoPano), it might do the correction for you. see

Otherwise it is playing about in the levels, curves dialogs.

RE: Brightness and Color Matching
Some thoughts, all basic stuff that you might already know, as previous, it depends on the images.
