Funding new GIMP features: Mirror Painting! [+poll]
While many of GIMPs developers have a full time job and work for for it in their spare time others would like to improve the software with funded features. There is a very cool new possible feature now that you’ll maybe see in GIMP when you decide to fund it: Mirror Painting!
What is it?
Mirror painting should be a new feature in GIMP that allows you to duplicate your brush strokes automatically on a defined axis (see image 2). It is a very powerful tool, especially for painters – as you can already see in the demo of the test implementation below.
Who does it?
Jehan Pagès is a GIMP developer already and made several additions to the GIMP core as well as bug fixes. He started this funding project and would be happy to get it clean and nicely implemented into GIMP with well-thought internal design. The current demo is just a proof of concept and cannot go into GIMP master.
How do I support it?
Head over to http://funding.openinitiative.com/funding/1578/ register, login and support open source projects like GIMP via crowdfunding! ~€ 700 are already funded, ~ 1300 to go!
More information can be found on Jehans blog entry.
Take the poll, too: Would you donate for a development of a new GIMP feature (crowdfunding)?
