Are you in the #OpenSourceDesign room at #Fosdem right now? Did you wish there was more space to talk and discuss? Were you left outside because the room was full?

Join us at Libre Graphics Meeting in a few months in Rennes, France.

The Norwegian public broadcaster NRK is showing 9 days of continuous video from Svalbard these days, to mark the 100th anniversary of the Svalbard Treaty. nrk.no/presse/programomtaler/s

Nice to keep on in the background (with Firefox's new-ish picture-in-picture feature) #NRKsvalbard #slowTV #OpenStreetMap #iDeditor

The more I think about it the more I miss Libre Graphics magazine libregraphicsmag.com/

@tindall @nik
Well, if you have classes that include quizzes on button positions, you have bigger problems than program names. 😿
I am all for forking, just won't recommend this fork for a few years. If it will be still around in a year or two, good.
Also please stop being this antagonistic I am not even against glimpse and you. 😅

I want a bot that crawls reddit and locks issues temporarly whenever somebody posts them in order to mob and harass the developers.

I just used the word "folklore" when making a joke, but I couldn't help feeling weird. EVERY time I hear this word I think of Gilberto Gil, one of Brazil's greatest singer-songwriters. Thread follows.

@utzer yep belongs to me, the luggage must have snuck aboard your van while I was away for swims and caffeine. See email for some potential chaos-post parcel drop points. :)

Let's be fair to #theyoungpeople who think that a floppy disk is a weird symbol for a "save" icon: lots of us have known/said that that was a terrible metaphor choice for decades; the UI-design committees stuck with it anyway. Because they don't like rockin' the boat.

@avolkov the illusion is dependent on the area the image covers in your visual field, so even at full size it probably works if you move some distance away from he screen.

A write up about and small gallery of results for the now titles "Color Assimilation Grid Illusion" I discovered last week that vent viral:

Refined examples of Illusory Photo Colorization wider lines permit less exaggerated saturation while it still works.

@penguin42 the whole illusion works better when the image is scaled down or at an distance; the coloring of the gray behind the red parts also work better if you look at other parts of the image, zoomed in and staring it breaks apart for all colors.

@arunisaac it kind of already is through en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chroma_s such local color contrast also contributes a psychovisual factor to the color mixing of halftoning beyond what already occurs optically.

@sybren for me the blending in of the grid is worst on red as well, but if I zoom out or move away from the screen I do sense red also on those tshirts.

Playing around with Raph Levien's new curve type that he presented at the last LGM, converted to C++. Also comparing to his old spiro type. The blue dots are after conversion to cubic beziers. Where the old spiro is more like having to keep up with a higgs boson gone mad, the new type is much more stable. These curves potentially help a lot to cut down on bezier handle clutter when working with paths.

The GEGL image viewer, browser has gained a basic graph/property editor and a piecemeal migration of UI code to lua has begun for more see this post with screenshots of some of the UI pieces evolving: patreon.com/posts/non-destruct

There goes 2018, what a year right?

With this wonderful people we'll reap joy, love and prosperity in 2019. Wish you all the same. ❤️

babl and GEGL are starting to get deep and proper CMYK support now, paving the likely road ahead for GIMP patreon.com/posts/22901518

Imagine if there was patents/monopolies on color combinations and you either had to license them or stick to new novel color combinations: dropbox.com/
