"In the five days before this weekend, Ellen and Kamila had been
gathering vital raw material by performing workplace observation. Half
a dozen professionals in the field of photography and graphic design
were interviewed and observed on the job. These participants had been
selected based on the GIMP product vision."



Does it help?

Personally I don't expect every single job out there to be listed. CG
industry seems to create a new kind of job every year, for instance.

This would be tricky. People can use professional workflows and not be
paid for the work they do.
