On article GIMP seeks funding for future advanced features (192 comments in total)
In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: I'd give them $7.50 if they promised to add Selective Color (the Photoshop CS/CC name for the feature.) Cue up confusion with features that allow users to select colours. Not even close to the same thing.

Well, and of course the software needs to be a good bit faster. Opening PhotoShop CS6 on my system takes less time than opening GIMP 2.8.

That is nice indeed. I have only matte 1440x900 but it is also only 14,1". Much better than my matte 1280x800 Dell in the same size. Not only in resolution, also in colour. And thanks to PC-Card, ich have USB 3.0. (both).

Opening a second time takes only 3s. At my desktop, also a core2 with DDR3, it takes only 2s on Linux and 4s on Windows 7. Yes Windows is slower.

2008 Thinkpad with 4GB RAM and Linux takes about 6 seconds to open GIMP 2.8.10 first time after boot up. Core 2 Duo. Probably the same modell your MBP has. (But with DDR3-RAM).

Of course, GIMP is not PS. No discussion about that. It was just about the time it takes to start the programm. GIMP is unbelevebly resource friendly. First start can take a while. And when you have installed new plug-ins or fonts. I tried it on a Raspberry Pi for fun. Just because I was curious. It worked fine. Much better than surfing the web.

I use GIMP only occasionally. Just a few layers. I use it on Linux and Win7 on core 2 machines with SSD. Starting it have alway been quick. Last PS i used was the first CS version.

It opens almost instantly on my 7 years old machine. Well, it takes a few seconds on a Raspberry Pi, but even there it is bearable. Photoshop on the other hand would not run on a Raspberry Pi.

Binary Emotions: In order to continue being the best opensource Photoshop alternative, GIMP should finally be ported to Gtk3, it's nonsense that an image editing tool is unusable on HiDPI displays!

ported to qt

LJ - Eljot: The young lady in the picture is most probalby not showing a peace sign but just two fingers for the number 2. In the japanese language the word for 2 is "ni". When you say "ni" you smile. It is just the similar thing to "cheese" in english. So I was told once.

Ah, the "ni" seems to be a backward explanation. It did a little internet research. It was indeed a peace sign in the beginning. Nowadays most people do it without knowing why. Interesting.

On article Buying a second lens: what lens should I buy next? (301 comments in total)
In reply to:

IamJF: Many words for: 50f1.8 :-)

The OP did not mention the type of camera he would recommend a 50mm/1.8 for. This kind of lens would be nice for most systems. But with a diffent purpos of course. In fact, it would be the type of lense I would recommend for APS-C/DX users. For small picture users all the 85mm f/1.8 would be a good choice. But it depends on the personal needs.

50mm f/1.8 on mft would be a fine tele lens. But I don't know one. The very fine Olympus 45mm f/1.8 is the closest to that. And it was my second lens for my first PEN (E-P1). I always have been very content with it.

LJ - Eljot: So, prints from commercial version be less permanent?

Sure. That is very nice. Proof prints don't have to be that longs lasting, I think. Wider gamut is definitly preferable for this aplication.

There is a word missing in my sentence. Please add a "will".

marc petzold: The Lumix GH1 is basically 95% a Lumix G1, same Body, Size, just added Video Features, same 12 MP mFT Sensor with great Colors & Tonality. My go-to walk-around mirrorless is always being the G1 & Lumix G Vario 14-45/3.5-5.6 Lens - it delivers, and that's it. Same as for the Sony R1, i never go >ISO 400 with this combo, shooting RAW-only.

When you use 4:3 the two cameras use the same sensor area (of course) an both images will be 4000 pixel wide. Using 16:9 with the G1 will result in an image 4000 pixel wide, too. But using 16:9 with the G1H will result in an image 4352 wide.
By the way: The 1:1 Ratio is just a crop from the 4:3 ratio. It does not make use of the multiformat sensor for this ratio.

These ratios are obtained by just croping the original 4:3 image. Take a tripod, take pictures in different ratios with jpeg+RAW and compare! The GH1 has a biger sensor. Different ratios have the same diagonal size.

As far as I remember the GH1 could stream clean output over HDMI and some people used (very expensive) external HDMI recorders. I have seen some sample video on vimeo.

eno2: So if the photographer uses Hasselblad, Phase One or Fuji MF cameras, he's not qualified to do the job. :))

Pentax 645Z neither.
