There was a recent call sent out for new and updated assets for the
next version of GIMP (icons, themes mainly) and some of those have
started rolling in, i've submitted several themes myself and so far
one has made it in. I was asked to get the ball rolling on the
subject, so here it goes :) Maybe for starters offer input on the
current Dark Theme and if there might be interest in a new light &
grey theme as well or any other suggestions for that matter. You can
find the themes here:
Alternate Light Theme (Lighter, more color contrast on some
The links have screenshots, and 7z files with the theme asset (and
the dark theme has patches for the gimp crew).
So far i've tested the Dark Theme on KDE(Ubuntu/Plasma), Unity
(Ubuntu), Windows 8.1 (and wine on Linux), OSX (Maverick) to make sure
it had a consistent feel across platforms. The only caveats so far
were under KDE where i had to toggle off the option " Apply colors to
non-Qt applications" because without that KDE overrides some GTK
widget theme colors and icons. As a side note i am currently awaiting
feedback on the Dark Theme under KDE before applying the KDE tweaks i
made there to the other themes.
So guess have at it, let me and the GIMP crew know what you think.
To add a little more depth to this all, these are the in-progress
versions of the new default themes for GIMP.
Well at least, there would be a light and a dark version. Now one
question is: do we want to release also intermediate greys, which seems
to be a common request?
Also the released theme need to be working on any platform, which is why
we ask if people could test. We already noticed that even on Linux,
depending on your desktop, some things were broken and had to be fixed.
So tell us and provide screenshots if something is weird when testing on
whatever you run GIMP on.
And finally we are looking for inputs on the design: what do you think,
how could we improve these themes, and so on. The goal is not to
perfectly please everyone (we encourage theme makers to provide many
alternatives for everyone, since all tastes are in nature, right?),
which is impossible, but to provide a good and solid default, and
pleasant looking for a wide range of the users.
So: please test, break things, and tell us what you think of these. :-)
P.S.: I think you can test the themes with the released 2.9.2, but you
won't have support for the symbolic icons, I believe. If you want to try
these, you'll need to have the master version.
