Your help would be much appreciated. We are currently trying to come
up with a roadmap towards a better user interface. In my opinion we
should try to apply some of the established methods of user interface
and interaction design here. I was hoping to find some volunteers for
this task at openusabilit.org (see
http://openusability.org/projects/gimp) but so far the discussions
have been difficult as many of the participants don't know much about
the subject. It would certainly help to have a professional on board.
One of the projects that we started recently is trying to come up with
a collection of personas that represent GIMP user groups:
Since you seem to be working in Berlin, perhaps you want to join us at
the biweekly usability meeting at the CCC rooms? We are discussing and
applying usability methods to Open Source software projects. GIMP has
been the subject of discussion a few times already. We are also
planning to do usability test of GIMP 2.3. Let me know if you are
interested to help with that.
