Graphics, User Interfaces High bit depth support, non-destructive editing (so called "effect layers") and colour management. Three hot topics in photography editing - that users have been waiting for for a long time now to appear in GIMP. Today Linux & Photography blog features an exclusive interview with Martin Nordholts, one of the core contributors to GIMP. Nordholts speaks about the current state of affairs, explains what is going on deep inside the GIMP (and GEGL) and also lifts a corner of the veil about what is to come.

Some people do not understand why one window is needed. I could elaborate why, but I tell you one thing - I dont WANT TO. I dont want to CONVINCE others that one window only like Photoshop is better.

I want to use it, because I _want_ to use it. I am not interested in people who try to convince me that I dont want it. I WANT IT. And I would love if developers could understand this wish.


wow. what a self-righteous post.

i really like the current gimp ui. to borrow your logic, i could elaborate why... but I don't want to, either.

i'm fairly sure, with your attitude, the gimp developers wouldn't mind losing you as a user. demanding an (arguably unnecessary) feature from a group of volunteer programmers while simultaneously adamantly refusing to justify yourself will score you no points. ***cringe***
