I think there are people interested in this enhancement, but it depends
on how it is prepared and presented.
Currently all dev. stuff is working hardly on 2.4 release so they are a
bit busy. ;-)
It's usual to write a C patch and try to get it accepted by the dev. here.
Ok currently I' cant provide a C patch but I'm interested in GIMP dev. -
what to do?
First I think we have to discuss UI questions with the UI guys at
(hmm - how best to do this?)
Second we have to completely work out the thing to motivate a dev. to
implement the changes.
I would like to further discuss your enhancement - please contact me via
private mail so that we can start to work on this... [EMAIL PROTECTED]
--> Some comments to your enhancement post:
01. Yes good idea (but never speak out the evil word pho***o* - dev. are
a bit sensitive to it ;-)
02. We definitely have to extend the color editing tools because motion
picture compositing software has far more powerful tools for color
03. a first quick and dirty proof from my side for everyone interested:
