1.
 

In Gimp, open a photo you want add some character to.

I'm gonna use a photo of my friend's awesome twins.

 
 
2.
 

Go to the Layers window and click Create a duplicate of the layer button. (see picture).

Press Ctrl + L if you don't see the Layers window.

 
 
3.
 

Set the new duplicate layer Mode to Overlay.

 
 
4.
 

And that's it!

 
 
5.
 

And for the close-up.

It's really a nice and simple way to boost up colors and contrast, thus giving subjects on your photos more character.
