Hi Roland, I saw your example but i continue to say that the GIMP can be uncomfortable to use. In your example you don't have all the funcfionnality offer by the program (see http://docs.gimp.org/en/concepts-beginners.html#gimp-concepts-usage I saw your concept, and it looks quite nice.

Why do you keep using GIMP? Why don't you help Boudewijn with tracking down bugs in Krita 1.5 beta2? Great way to attract collaborators. I guess many people love the GIMP, but they don't have the attitude to cooperate in its development; I could not be this harsh even if I tried. Alex.

Both questions are valid. They are not valid. If someone said she was a KDE developer on a Mozilla list, would you think it right to ask why is she using Firefox instead of helping out with Konqueror? How would you phrase them to be less harsh? Not making them. It is one thing to be curt and

But he doesn't! He said that the GIMP could have a PS compatibility mode For usability's sake it's not good to introduce modes that make same application look and behave different. I completely agree with this. Probably docking palettes or something like this would be all that is needed to

Hi Pasi, I think that it should be ran in non-adaptive and non-recursive mode with white/black points se to maximum. But when it's ran with those settings it doesn't produce what I expect. Here's an image: http://iki.fi/psavo/random/gimp-despeckle-problem.jpg.html I can't tell if it's a

Thanks a lot to everyone for your suggestions, I will let you know how it goes when I have time to try them out. I'm still open to theoretical approaches you find interesting. The place for 3rd party gimp plugins and scripts is registry.gimp.org, it includes a few noise removal gems. Thanks! I
