Is there a human-readable, textual format that describes changes (style/presets) that you can apply on the image? Then this format can be read in multiple photo editing softwares and easily shared by ppl.
This is a trivial example, but you will get the picture ;)
Name: MyCoolContrastOnBlue Contrast: +15 <- increase of the contrast Hist.blue: (0.7, 0.7) <- added a point in histogram Brightness: -2 Saturation: -32.1 Noise: -2
and so on. Then we can share sets of presets/styles, and make an open community of it.
Of course, some algorithms depend on software (like noise reduction, blur), but we can add modifiers like:
Noise: -2 Noise<CaptureOne.9>: -2.1
So if the software is CaptureOne, we actually use
-2.1 noise reduction etc.
Is there something like this in this world?
