Many people use or benefit from the code I give away, many small contributions do add up; though consider using a higher tier part time - or my account on liberapay.org/pippin to avoid credit card processing fees taking a larger cut.

basic support

At almost the monthly cost of one app from creative cloud, I will add your name to a text file I might use as input for rendering visual examples of algorithms and more.

Sneak peeks and more

You might get a chance to see images/drafts of concepts/proofs of concept before the rest of the world.

About Øyvind Kolås

I am a digital media toolsmith, creating tools and infrastructure to aid creation of my own and others artistic and visual digital media experiments. I am the maintainer and lead developer of GIMPs next generations engine, babl/GEGL - infrastructure libraries where I for the more than the last decade have been working actively on providing high bitdepths, HDR, CMYK and non-destructive editing and capabilities/possibilities to GIMP - and other software. GIMP does not redistribute donations as payment for contributions (though GIMP does sponsor a development machine for me).

By being my patron you help ensure that I can continue to work improving, documenting and disseminating existing and ongoing projects, research and experiments of various technical and creative projects that aid creative expression.

I enjoy figuring out how to make computers treat visual, and other media in new or interesting ways. Ranging from graphics and audio processing through user interfaces to data structures for media representation. You can find a portfolio of past and present projects at http://pippin.gimp.org/

My postings here are limited to things I think are interesting and newsworthy, even in months when I am not making a posting the ongoing maintainer work on babl and GEGL continue. Work with issues in gitlab, integrating work from others and at least a handful releases of babl and GEGL each year.

I'd be comfortable having running cost for housing, food and some travel and entertainment.
