| Product family - a collection of graphics editing programs developed by Adobe 
| Systems to create and edit images - should have a look at its open source  
| alternative, GIMP.  
| GIMP - GNU Image Manipulation Program - is the most well-known open source 
| graphics editing application, born in 1995 as reported in the GNU free 
| software directory, is a freely distributed program for tasks like photo 
| retouching, image composition and authoring. Last but not least the so-called 
| batch mode that allows you to do image processing from the command line.

New Manju project plans to redraw desktop art

,----[ Quote ]
| Most free software projects produce applications for users. A minority,
| however, produce specifications or libraries for developers and other
| contributors. An example of this second type is the recently announced Manju
| project, whose goal is to make themes easier to create. The project's goal is
| to write the specifications and scripts for using scalable vector graphics
| (SVG) files to store widget and other theme-related information that can be
| used on a variety of toolkits.
| [...]
| But all these advantages are only possibilities. For now, Janik says, "Manju
| needs artistic input. It also needs code for the extraction, and the example
| code to demonstrate how SVG theme files can be used for toolkits." Once that
| work is done, "it also needs integration into existing toolkits. And this is
| something that can't really happen within the scope of the Manju project,
| because it is just providing the necessary groundwork. It depends on
| contributors to the individual toolkits" -- especially GTK+ and Qt.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
