I have used this image for a wide variety of testing, mostly to do
with printing: (first link)

(note to prudes, there is a woman's bare bottom included ;)

The license wording is a little ambiguous, but I interpret it to mean
that it's OK to use it for testing purposes, as long as you aren't
selling or otherwise distributing the image itself.  I'm not sure how
that would relate to a project like GIMP, and it appears we'd need a
German speaker to even ask.

The 2002 version contains a *wide* variety of things that can go
spectacularly wrong when printing (eg for one, over saturation of
black completely destroys the image of the watch), and was a real life
saver when I was setting up the workflow of: Workstation -> Digital
RIP -> Large Format Printer.  It's a beastly image to try and print
correctly, and I imagine the 2009 version is just as devious :)
