Dear All,


I’m writing on the behalf of Budapest based Visual Ingenium Ltd.

We have started a cooperation last year with the ECDL Foundation in order to develop a new ECDL module for image processing, using GIMP, Photoshop and Corel Photopaint. I think this is a great opportunity for GIMP to become really popular in Europe.


The current phase is about developing the exam tasks, so we met a problem: in Photoshop there’s an option to save the steps made by the examinee which makes correction pretty easy. Unfortunately we haven’t found any similar feature in GIMP.


Here’s a sample of the txt file saved by Photoshop:

Do you have any idea show to solve this with GIMP? Is there any chance to implement this feature in the next version?
