Re: [Gimp-web] SGO text


First, hope you had a Happy Birthday this week!

Second - I'm pinging you about the "programming algorithms" text... :)

Hi Pat !

Thank you for the effort you are putting into this.
I myself am busy to take a careful luck now - but a far as I can see
you are taking the right decisions.

Would you mind pinging me later this week? I think I can come up with
some text for
the "programing algorithms" part.

So, I'm currently poking at the main page for the WGO redesign.  I had
mentioned in a previous mail the product vision from the vision briefing
whose main points concerning the product vision were:

A. HIgh-end photo manipulation
B. Creating original art.
C. Production elements (graphical design)
D. Programming algorithms.

I am looking for any input if anyone would like to offer some on the
verbiage of a few key places on the site right now (

First, the introductory text in the very first section after the name,
Wilber, and a download link.  It currently reads:

## The Free & Open Source Image Editor

This is the official GIMP website.
GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is the Free
Open Source, cross platform image editor available for GNU/Linux, OS X,
Windows and more. It contains information about downloading, installing,
using, and enhancing it. This site also serves as a distribution point
the latest releases. We try to provide as much information about the
community and related projects as possible. Hopefully you will find what
you need here. Grab a properly chilled beverage and enjoy...

I feel that it gets the most important points up front (official site,
is an acronym..., cross platform, image editor).  Are there other points
that need to be made in that first introductory paragraph?

The next few sections I had broken out to hopefully address/illustrate
of the vision statement points.  I can use any input for those sections
well if anyone has thoughts:

## High Quality Photo Manipulation

GIMP provides the tools for needed for high quality image manipulation.
From retouching to restoring to creative composites, the only limit is

and (A big thanks to David Revoy for allowing use of some of his

## Original Artwork Creation

I have nothing for this section yet to address original artwork

I still have to make:

## Production Elements (graphical design?)

## Programming algorithms (i seriously have no idea what to put here)

I think it might be nice to also include something to place GIMP within
context of a F/OSS workflow for multiple use-cases, photography, web
production design, and desktop publishing - I'm still thinking on this.

So, anyone care to unleash their inner marketing-Hemingway?  Otherwise
going to take my best guess at things and just hope I don't screw up too
bad...  (I just realized that almost my entire life can be described in
that one sentence... :) ).
