Gimp-help needs contributors

Hello all,

One months ago, I asked for contributors in GIMP-help. I received several answers, and some people got near to start. But finally, nothing happens, candidates being discouraged by the complexity of git + gitlab + xml + gimp-help structure.

So, I propose you write documentation in plain text that I'll adapt to xml and manage in git.

It must be plain text ( NotePad++ under Windows).

A general plan could be:

- Overview: what the feature does, what is it useful for?

- Options: description of every option, with examples if necessary.

- Example(s) of using the command, tool, filter.

Images preferably in Light theme and Color icon theme, and comments preferably outside the image. If you use text layers, please supply the xcf file (translators need it).

You could start with the Colors new features:

- Hue-Chroma

- Saturation

- Exposure

- Shadows-Highlights

- Linear Invert

- Auto/Color-Enhance

- Components/Extract Component

- Components/ Mono Mixer

- Desaturate/Color to Gray

- Map/Alien Map

- Tone Mapping/Fatal, Mantiuk, Reinhard, Stress

- Info/Export Histogram

- Dither

- RGB Clip

Helping this will suit you.

Gimp-help needs contributors

Hello Julien,

I will take a shot at doing a plain text and images GIMP-Help for these four "Colors" features:
- Hue-Chroma
- Saturation
- Exposure
- Shadows-Highlights

We'll see how it goes after that.

Cheers, Rick Strong,
Ottawa
