GIMP and GEGL Projects for GSoC2012 Announced

We are excited to announce that we have five students to work with us on improving GIMP as part of the Google Summer of Code 2012 program. All the students will be contributing to faster transition of GIMP to GEGL, our new advanced image core.

The projects are:

  • Maxime Nicco and hanslo will port GIMP filters to GEGL operations.
  • Ville Sokk will port other GIMP features to GEGL.
  • Isaac Wagner will create a GEGL-based node compositor that will serve as playground for GEGL development.
  • Mikael Magnusson will create a Unified Transform tool.

In the past years Google Summer of Code has proven to be a great source of contributions. We wish our students success and, above all, a lot of fun while making GIMP a state of the art image editor.
