we did it. a 10th Anniversary GIMP Splash Contest has officially begun
on the day of the anniversary/birthday.
the first thing to mention that the word Anniversary appears all over
the contest pages and in the GIMP News. the word Birthday is equally
appropriate and should be used if it fits your splash better.
splashes will be required to have a tutorial accompany them. consider
it a little gift for Wilber and Wilma. i personally consider this a
great way to get new material for gimp that is not the same old stuff
from the same old people. and if the same old people have some new
stuff, they will need to submit a tutorial as well....
a minimum requirement for tutorials is a text file listing the steps and
plug-ins you had gimp go through to make the image. telling the values
you fed to the plug-ins will make a better tutorial. if you would like
to include screen shots and your image in the pre-final stages of its
making, feel free to include all of that. if you are handy with html,
go ahead and write that as well.
put all of the tutorial information, text and images, into an archive
file, either zipped format or gzipped tarball and upload that with your
the contest begins about an hour ago and will end on November 27 (7 days
the developers will review the submissions and pick the one they think
best reflects gimp for its birthday. at the present, they are not
complaining about the contest -- it is a good sign!
when i was ten years old, the world seemed to be simple and very nice.
it seems fitting to me to think that gimp is much like that now. ten is
