Re: [Shotwell] Shotwell Plugin-based Postprocessing Tools

Looks good. GraphicMagic claims not be  able any more to take code from ImageMagic, because of ImageMagic's licence.

If it is true than this is not a problem, because GraphicMagic claim to have a stable API and run faster than ImageMagic.

thanks for your detailed proposal.  This all looks pretty reasonable to me.  One point, though: I don't think we want individual effects to show up as icons in the editing toolbar (beside Crop, Straighten and so on).  Space there is already quite limited: on some displays (e.g. netbooks with 1024 horizontal pixels) we're already using just about all the available space.  Also, I think these effects will be relatively rarely used, so I don't think giving them permanent real estate on the screen is justified.

Instead, I think these effects should appear inside the Adjust dialog, near the existing built-in color transformations.  There are two ways we can do that: they could either appear below the existing sliders in the dialog, or we could add a second tab to the dialog where all of the effects would appear.  If a user has no effects installed, then the second tab wouldn't appear at all.
