A so-called splash screen is an image that is shown when launching an application/program on your computer. GIMP is using a standard-splash screen too, but it is pretty easy to change it to another one by yourself. Of course you have to create such a splash screen by yourself now for the upcoming version of GIMP (which will be 2.8) :) Thats what this contest is about. Make your very own splash screen and upload up to 3 of them to our contest system. If one of the submitted splashes is great there is also a chance to have it included as new standard splash-screen or maybe for development-versions of GIMP! However the developers will decide this and we don’t have influence on this!
- You can use any image stuff you like (photos, brushes, textures etc.) If you do so please mention all the stuff in the description when uploading
- Please put the Text “GNU Image Manipulation Program”, “GIMP” and the version number somewhere on the splash screen. This is no a “must” but helpful to determine it is a GIMP splash screen!
- you can upload up to 3 different splash screens, you can also edit or delete all of them while the contest is running. You need to be a registered member to use our upload system!
- Please save your file as .xcfbz2 too and upload it. This is a compressed xcf-file format that is smaller in size.
- Make sure all the stuff you need to do the splash screen is not copyrighted by another person that does not allow the usage of it.
- Any size of the splash screen is possible. But consider, that screen resolutions are not infinite
- After the contest has ended you’ll be able to vote on all submitted images if you like it or not.
- Have fun by making the image!
