On Friday 4 November 2022, from 6PM to 8PM, Aryeom, animation film director
(among others "ZeMarmot"), and Jehan, main developer and maintainer of GNU
Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), will host a conference at the Jules Verne
Library in Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy.
The event is organized by the Collective Factory of the Libre Culture (FCCL), a
public service of the city, Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy.
Poster for the talk "GIMP et ZeMarmot" of 4 November 2022 in Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy
They will talk about the Free Software GIMP, its fully community-based
organization, the place of "ZeMarmot" project, animation film produced by
LILA and itself under an Open/Libre license, within GIMP development, but also
as a project on its own.
Various topics can be raised: from Libre Art to Community, Free Software,
through copyright or funding questions… all this on the basis on an actual
G'MIC is a full-featured open-source framework for image processing, distributed under the CeCILL free software licenses (LGPL-like and/or GPL-compatible).
G'MIC is mostly developed by David Tschumperlé and Sébastien Fourey in the IMAGE team of the GREYC laboratory (French Research Lab, affiliated to the CNRS, the University of Caen, and the engineering school ENSICAEN). Both are enthusiastic researchers, committed to open science and free software, trying to make regular contributions to the field of image processing in addition to developing this software in their spare time. G'MIC provides a popular plug-in for GIMP, Krita and Paint.NET, as well as a command-line tool, containing hundreds of image filters and effects to help artists and scientists around the world transform or improve their images.
Unfortunately their lab does not accept direct donation. Since a Libre
framework for image processing is absolutely within the boundaries of
LILA's objectives, we accepted to act as an umbrella organization to
collect donations for G'MIC.
The money collected will be periodically paid to the IMAGE team, to be
used for the development of G'MIC.
Same as last year, LILA is participating to the digital festival of Paris libraries with 3 workshops of pixilation animation and a round table (featuring ZeMarmot team and writers published by Framasoft association) about Libre Art and commons.
