Goat Invasion in GIMP

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Once upon a time, like 5 weeks ago, there used to be the longstanding plan to, at some point in the future, port GIMP to GEGL. We have done a lot of refactoring in GIMP over the last ten years, but its innermost pixel manipulating core was still basically unchanged since GIMP 1.2 days. We […]

GIMP on GTK+ 3.0

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

At the GTK+ Hackfest in A Coruna I managed to get GIMP almost completely (minus one dialog and most plug-ins) running on GTK+ 3.0. This turned out to be a great tool for finding bugs in the new GTK+. In fact, I found quite a few of them while still completing the port. Some bugs […]

Using the Mac OS X Menubar

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

Finally, after quite some debugging (of the very same bug for months), I committed preliminary support for the global Mac OS X menubar to GIMP trunk. It’s the result of a project I’ve been involved with at Imendio. Check the project page. For seeing the coolness without compiling yourself, check the video.

Gimp statt Photoshop

Jetzt ist es amtlich! – stand ja schließlich im SPIEGEL 😉 Ein mit GIMP gemachtes Bild hat beim SPIEGEL Bildbearbeitungs-Wettbewerb gewonnen. Glückwünsche an den erfolgreichen Manipulator!

A status report from the half-done PDB and Plug-In chopping orgy.

An early Glance at GIMP on OS X

Thursday, October 6th, 2005

I’m very excited today 🙂 My co-worker Anders Carlsson has spent the last two months with starting a port of GTK+ to the Mac OS X Cocoa framework, so GTK+ applications will eventually run natively (without needing X11) on that platform. The port is still in its early stages and incomplete, but after these few […]

3… 2… 1… 10!

Tuesday, August 30th, 2005

It could easily have been forgotten, but Federico remembered it. GIMP is going to be 10 years old on November 21st 🙂 That cries for a birthday party, doesn’t it?

Even More Paper Prototyping

Saturday, August 27th, 2005

It seems to become popular: Sven and Antenne already mentioned it in their blogs. Now Akkana Peck has created a small script that allows to do “Paperless Menu Prototyping” using GIMP layers. Just enter a newline-separated list of words and the script will create an image featuring each word on a layer that can be […]
