I’m currently in the process of responding to a call for projects, that could allow to get a paid developer for some months to work on G’MIC (“CNRS OPEN”: CNRS Innovation » Open).
The great news is we’ve passed the first stage (project pre-selection), and I’ll have to present the software to a jury in early December. It will be a 10mn presentation, where I must describe the current state of the G’MIC project, and the projects for the future.
One of the things I need to make clear is that G’MIC is versatile and can be used for a lot of different image processing applications.
So I think the best thing to do is to turn to the users (who frequent this forum) and ask them if they would be willing to share images that I could put in my slides to show that G’MIC is indeed very useful
So, if you’ve used G’MIC on personal or institutional projects with a bit of visibility, it would be super cool to let me know, so I can show the diversity of uses for G’MIC software in my slides.
Thanks in advance!
PS: Of course, there’s absolutely no guarantee that my application will be accepted, but I’ll do my utmost to make it happen
I have used it to make more illustrated looking pictures for school projects. It helped to keep things looking more consistent, similar, and professional. Not super interesting, but I guess it shows an application for schools?
Yes, definitely. Could you tell me a bit more about it?
Like which school (if possible, country, city, student level), and maybe a picture of your final “product” ? I’m actually more interested by the context of the use than in the result itself!
The idea is to show that it’s used just about everywhere, and for a wide variety of things.
You can always use some of my test results in my G’MIC thread (fun or progress ones).
The largest visible ones would be my Paint.NET plugins which incorporate G’MIC in it or this one - G’MIC Car Box Wall Generator – Re-Volt World . The second one demonstrates that it can be used to develop things for games. I think I have plans to make more game-related modding G’MIC thingies in the future and that probably will lead to indirect attention to G’MIC.
They’re not much visible, but they’re the most visible out there I think.
The invisible ones are things I used G’MIC for personal projects where some one who knows what G’MIC is would scream “You’re not supposed to use G’MIC for that”. I did it to manipulate a non-image-related file before, and I would do it again when I see the need for it. I found it easier than Python for that too!
Mmmm I actually forgot about these… Not sure it’ll help you though!
A long time ago (somewhere between 2008 and 2012), i made quite a few (well, quite a lot actually) images (backgrounds, thumbnails) using GIMP and Gmic-qt (i guess it was called Gmip-Gmic at the time?) for educational software.
First of all, thanks for all your feedback so far. I’ve already put most of your results in my slides
Also, I want to tell you an incredible story related to this search for creations where G’MIC came in handy. Believe me, this made my day . Here it is:
Thanks to Judy Smith and Mark McCaughrean for their kindness and encouragement.
In my case, I’m trying to make slides for a presentation to convince a jury that G’MIC is widely used. This for getting funds for having a developper working full-time on the G’MIC project for a while.
So I must focus on the use of G’MIC, not GIMP.
