Re: [Gimp-user] GIMP Success celebrated on Flickr

Hi Garth,

I think most devs read the user mailing list (this one). There is also
a GIMP developer list ( ). Yet in
your case though, the user ml is better suited. So you did well. I
don't think we really want to make it a habit to have the dev list
used for user promotion.

At least if your goal is just to say thank you, you are welcome, and I
think you are already in the right place. :-)
If your goal here is rather to spread the self-promotion, the user
mailing list is ok for this too, I'd say.

Note that as far as I know, we don't have an official promotional
team, or at least it is not about generic GIMP user promotion (see to see what kind of news are published by the dev team).
Though, there are a bunch of interesting media. For instance you might
want to contact GIMP magazine (, Libre Graphics
World (, Libre Graphics Mag
(, and whatever other computer graphics
publication. :-)
Have fun!

I'm an amateur photographer and photo artist. I make almost no money at my
data entry job, and just have a point-and-shoot camera and GIMP.

For the past two years I've been using and experimenting with GIMP, and for
the past year or so it's been my only graphics manipulation software. I
completely believe in the Open Source programming philosophy and the amazing
work everyone who helps out with GIMP is doing.

This past Friday, March 3rd, the Flickr Blog and Yahoo! Studios posted a
three minute video of the work I've been doing with GIMP, which you can get
to at the link above. I thought people who were instrumental with the
creation of GIMP might want to know about that success.

I'm frequently asked if I use photoshop in my images, and I'm proud to tell
people, "Not anymore. GIMP is my go-to software of choice."

Thank you so much, all of you, for all you do to make this such an amazing
and powerful and easily accessible piece of software. You are the best!!

If anyone knows how I can more directly reach the developers and promoters
of this software I'd love to let them know. Thanks for your help with this.

yours in peace and inspiration,
Garth Hill
