README - No seriously. Read it.

READ THIS BOX BEFORE SUBMITTING TO GALLERY OR FAVES!!

Now that I've got your attention with that massive text... Read at least the FAQ section.

FAQs
Why can't I submit my art to the gallery?
Because if just anybody could, all our watchers would get far too many deviation messages! For this reason art goes to faves unless you're a contributor.

Why was my art declined? ;_;
Probably because you didn't read this box. :stare:

Joining
Please note that join requests to members are accepted automatically, so any comments saying 'Wow that was quick!' are not needed. Don't be put off from commenting though! :la: We can still read what you put in the notes bit, so don't be put off from entering stuff in there too. ;)

Member classes:
Founder: Jibodeah, because he founded this group.
Co-Founders: Admin people.
Contributors: Those who make , and have contributed their own good art made with GIMP.
Members: Those who tag along, can submit faves

Becoming a Contributor
Does not happen that often. However Contributors generally have made and contributed their own good art. If you think that somebody should be a contributor, note the group. Feel free to suggest yourself with good reason.

Notes:
:bulletpurple: Most deviations are submitted to faves, because if they all went to the gallery our watchers would be over spammed with deviations. You submit your deviations by suggesting them as faves!
:bulletblue: Special submissions to gallery are allowed from members, to do so note the group with a link/thumb of your deviation you want to submit. Please note that it should be a deviation you are proud of and want more attention on.

Contest?
I'd like to hold a contest at some point in the future. As you know a contest needs prizes, and prizes means points! If you'd like to donate any points to a future contest please do so using the donation box on GIMP-Bot's page.

After a long time GIMP 2.8 is finally released!

:bulletpurple: The release notes are here!
:bulletblue: The download page is here!

Unfortunately Windows binaries are not available just yet, but keep checking! (You could always install from source if you know how). Windows binaries are available!
Packages should work their way into your favourite package distributor for the more Linux inclined among us.

Brief Summary of New Features
:bulletpurple: (Optional) Single window mode!
:bulletblue: Layer groups.
:bulletpurple: On canvas text editting (No more annoying text edit popup)
:bulletblue: Use maths in input boxes! (E.g. In image width put "720*0.5" and you'll get an image 360 pixels wide)
:bulletpurple: AND MOAR.

This also means the contest is over, but there was a shocking lack of entries so I'm going to think about what to do about that.

Group Info

GIMP-Artists is a place for all those who make artwork in GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, and those who just tag along.

We Will Happily accept any type of digital art, as long as GIMP was a significant part of it's creation!

Our Philosophy
In the beginning, there was Wilber, Wilber the gimp. The graphic was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the desktop, and the Spirit of Wilber was moving over the face of the bitstream.

And Wilber said, "<Toolbox>/File/New," and there was an image. And Wilber saw that the image was good, and Wilber separated the image into drawables. And Wilber looked down at what he had wrought, and Wilber said, "Oh golly." For Wilber had made the drawables of the layer according to their kinds, and the drawables of the channel according to their kinds, and the drawables of the mask according to their kinds …
