Libre comme l'Art

Non-profit association «LILA»

LILA supports the G'MIC project

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, Open-Source framework for image processing

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, in the form of research collaboration contracts between LILA and CNRS for the development of G'MIC.
