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.
At LILA we believe this is a valuable tool for creators, thus we want to financially support it. Therefore we collect funding to support the work David and Sébastien are doing on G'MIC, in agreement with them, as their lab does not accept direct donations. The money collected is periodically donated by LILA to the IMAGE team for the development of G'MIC.
The money collected is used for various support, development, hardware, travel, and more (remember - every little bit helps!).
