I have added a package of GIMP plugins to the software page. These scripts provide basic compositing tools like keyers, despill and edge wrap. I wrote them for personal use so don't expect a fancy UI, but I find them quite usefull at times and perhaps you will too.

DeviantArt Fotolia Stockpocalypse Contest

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

You can find my entry in the 2D graphics gallery. This years DeviantArt Fotolia contest was to good to pass up. The task was to create a post-apocalyptic version of one of three iconic stock images. I made the F/A-18's, alien mothership, flight goggles and the cape with Blender. The clouds and the buildings are from my own photo collection. Everything else: Gimp. A before/after version can be found here.
