Rules and volunteers invited. Rough consensus, no kings, running code ...?
Group DescriptionThe gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program - the Gnu Image Processor) gimp.org is image processing software developed and presented under an Open Source licence (It is Free (Libre) software, have a copy, have a dozen, pass them round, alter them.)
The most important thing about a photograph is not how it was processed, however, it is reasonable to collect a showcase of photographs which have been processed with the gimp, in order to demonstrate some of the results that can be achieved with it.
This is not - at the moment and I hope forever - for fanciness in processing and altering images although if the result is good then they can be shown here but it is for showing good photographs.
See a display ranked by interestingness of the pictures in this group at Flickriver
Group RulesIt has to be a good photograph.
I don't take many of those. I take lots that are OK, and lots more.
Only a few are good.
If you take _only_ or _very many_ good photographs I'm pleased for you, and may be amazed, perhaps try the one you think is most widely agreed to be good first?
It has to have been processed in the gimp. Crop, balance, clone, it doesn't have to be anything unusual or special.
If it was processed in something else as well - Hugin or whatever - then it is in scope, probably. I'm assuming nobody will go to the trouble of using Photoshop or other proprietary software to do the work, then alter a pixel and declare it gimped - what would be the point.
A good photograph may not have been viewed by many people, or marked as a favourite by any of them, yet, but perhaps it would be best to give it a while, and see whether quite a few people look at it, and someone comments that it is good or a favourite, add it to another group or two and see whether your next one might be better still before offering it here. This does not mean this group could not be allowed to scoop the world, but reticence and consideration are in order rather than hurry. This is not the first group to put a photo in, please.
