GIMP

While dealing with SourceForge is rather disruptive, we still get work done :)  Since last night, development branch of GIMP uses new Hue, Chroma, Color and Lightness layer modes in LCH color space. The rendering should match the rendering of these blending modes in Photoshop, PDF, and W3C's 'Compositing and Blending Level 1' specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/compositing-1/).

In 2009, we already tried to fix just the broken Color blending mode, but it only worked with GEGL-based projection enabled (projection being all layers blended to display on your monitor). Now we have fixed it for good.

Same as with recent Overlay mode fix, loading old XCF files will preserve the original rendering of these blending modes for compatibility, all new XCF files will use the new rendering.

This fixes https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=325564 originally filed in 2006. Some things take a while, but we do them anyway :)

Woohoo!  

I was the original reporter - good things come to those who wait I guess.   This was really more of a "what is correct" issue that I think needed some time/evidence to finally fix, rather than blindly mimic Photoshop.  If I'm reading it right, GIMP is doing it slightly "better" than Photoshop now - so it'll still differ, but intent will be close.

We've known for a while that GIMP's Overlay blending mode was incorrect and identical to Soft Light mode. Now that OpenRaster file format is becoming popular in free/libre workflows, this started hurting our users, so last week based on initial analysis by +Paul Geraskin+Michael Natterer fixed this for good in the unstable branch.

The new Overlay mode uses the respective formula from PDF and W3C (SVG) specifications and thus should be identical to Photoshop's and OpenRaster's Overlay mode. The PSD and ORA loaders/savers have been fixed accordingly.

When opening (now) legacy XCF files, GIMP will automatically map the old Overlay to Soft Light during compositing, so the rendering of your old works will be preserved. For all newly created layers with Overlay mode the new formula will be used instead.

Expect this to ship in unstable GIMP 2.9 first, then in stable 2.10. Since the fix changes the file format, unfortunately we cannot backport it to 2.8.
GIMP's OVERLAY mode was identical to SOFTLIGHT. This commit fixes the issue and introduces a NEW_OVERLAY mode and enum value. - change gimp:overlay-mode to be a real (svg-ish) overlay mode - when compositing, map OVERLAY to gimp:softlight-mode - when compisiting, map NEW_OVERLAY to ...

That doesn't really scale, +Dale Stanton just look what happens with Android, especially with all the malicious ads you get there.

It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

Is the adware free software at least?  :)  Either way, in the words of Karl Pilkington, "Get rid of it!"

Chaos Computer Club discovered a videotape from 1999. Olof S. Kylander did a talk about GIMP features, then at around 45:40 you can see GIMP developers at the time — Sven Neumann, +Michael Natterer, +Simon Budig — joining the stage to answer questions. They were all so young! :)

During +Libre Graphics Meeting last week in Toronto our very own +Jehan Pagès announced a new open animated movie project, ZeMarmot. It's a road movie with a marmot as protagonist.

http://film.zemarmot.net/en/

The team will be using just free/libre applications for the production: GIMP, Blender, Ardour, and a few others. Jehan will also resume his work on animation features in GIMP, extend OpenRaster file format to support animation, and improve Blender's non-linear video editor as much as he can.

You can support the campaign at IndieGoGo.
Animation film about a Marmot wandering the world, under CC BY-SA and fully made with Free Software. | Crowdfunding is a democratic way to support the fundraising needs of your community. Make a contribution today!

User David Wood has some neat tutorials for various effects, including a nice writeup for creating lightning effects (and more).
Welcome to my profile! I'm David and I've been doing graphics for over 5 years. I've had the chance to use many different photo and video editors from Paint.net and Gimp to Photoshop and After Effects. Most of my gigs will be design related but who knows what else I'll throw out there for ya. Later!

+Danas Anis producing a wonderful image with +darktable, GIMP, and +G'MIC in the workflow.  A nice cool image to begin a weekend (sorry, pun intended).
 
So today at school we had a little project we called Snow Queen. 
Raw images were processed in Darktable and all post work done in GIMP and GMICK Film Emulation filters. One photo is color version while the other one is black and white. 
Experiment with mixed light sources. Hope you find it interesting.
