Hello Stephen,

Disclaimer: I have no particular ability myself to integrate these..

Having read these, I see that you have much that is useful to say. In other words, I found automated-jpg-to-xcf.odt to be informative.

That said, are you saying that you would like to create content that is published here:


It looks like you chose the correct lists (doc, web, and developer) to obtain appropriate feed back.

I recommend (and other feedback may negate what I say) that you identify what you would like to have as topics in the tutorial; for example:

"How to write a script that is available when an image is not open"

I was not aware that this was an issue until I read your document.

I expect that this tutorial would be "Change all JPG files in a directory to XCF".

Gimp Doc Guys,

One of the listed methods to contribute to the Gimp project, listed on the website, is to write a tutorial. I tried sending in a tutorial for basic scripting (it was probably too long) about a year and a half ago. I did not hear back, but since the scripting tutorial did make some improvements I hope that it did have some positive contribution.

I did have another area where I thought that a few tutorials might be of interest and helpful to others, and that is in the area of Automation. This is an area that is nearer to my interests anyway (closer to my career interests). I think Gimp is unique in its capability as a platform for automating the image editing process. I am talking about Automating the process of custom edits not just using an "I feel lucky" button on a photo manager.

I think there is room in the area of automation for a couple of tutorials, I wrote up an example for one (importing a directory of images / jpg -> xcf). I think other tutorials could cover reading & writing parasites, parasites as flow control variables, how to build & execute a recipe / process / flow. I touched on these possibilities in the included file "Introduction".

Anyway, here is my dilemma. I would be happy to write a draft for tutorials on some or all of these topics, or better yet, co-author them with a member(s) of the gimp-doc team. I have no where to publish a tutorial, and it seems pointless to write something that no one will read.

Take a look at the attached documents and scripts. Let me know if this idea is something that sounds interesting. The *.odt format files are open office writer format.
