Description:

3 variants for a Gimp splash screen.

Copy to ~/home/your-account/.gimp-2.6/splashes
Create this directory if it doesn't exist. If everything works fine, the images in this folder will be displayed randomly each time gimp loads.

I will provide the xcf file to download later when I'll be not so lazy to find a download location.

The simplest one is obviously inspired by photoshop splash screen.
On the two other ones, the little thingy in the middle is a vector downloaded from http://vector4free.com/vectors/id/103

Thanks a lot for your comments.

The font used is "aller", wich you can find here : http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/Aller

Actually I'm not too happy with those iterations, here is why :
- Though the font is described as "free", I don't know exactly about its licence.
- I "borrowed" an element from this vector file : http://vector4free.com/vectors/id/103, which is free for personal use only.
- Overall, it's too much "photoshop-esque"

I will post some updates later on, more respectfull of open-source software and free fom "borrowed" elements.

That's why I would rather not publish the XCF file for now, but be sure I will do so for the next iterations !

I'll be waiting for the next iteration then :)
I'm making an Ubuntu remix tailored for artists, I've made a custom splash from scratch for 9.10 (see http://gimpstuff.org/content/show.php/?content=117905) but I'm not happy with it in 10.04/10.10. I tried several ways to improve it, changed fonts/colours/etc but the concept is too plain, so I gave it up and googled for a better one, and found your great work. Now I want to have something like this for my distro!

Great work! I'm looking forward to getting the XCF! By the way, I have a plenty of space to host it. And what's the font you used for "GNU Image Manipulation Program" caption?

simply,beautifull. i like it a lot becouse blue combination with orange tones works perfect.I want to take a look more in deep.becouse this is probably the better splashcreen that i have seen in a long time. Maybe the tipography could be fixed a bit. it is ok for me for the future 2.8. good job

Thanks for this beautiful splash. I like it so much cause curent 2.6's splash looks like Eclipse IDE :)

Hi,
Love the designs. Tried it in gimp 2.4 and it isn't working for me - is 2.6 the minimum req?

thanks

Hi,
I didn t tried to use custom splash screens with gimp 2.4. Maybe you need to copy it in your username/.gimp-2.4 folder instead of ./gimp-2.6
Or maybe it simply doesn t work with gimp 2.4...
