Hi all,

The gimp's splash screen has been bothering me for some time. The
current one is old fashioned and just plain bad. This is why. Its
color is sepia tone (looks like pictures coming back from the front
line during the second world war), it is too figurative, the exact
opposite that a good splash suppose to be. The splash is a branding
image and its function is to announce the product. It  shows up only
for a few seconds on the screen and because of this it should be to
the point. This also means that abstract images are better for this
purpose. To make the story short, I have created one that I think
trendier and more suitable for that purpose. And because feisty will
be such a big splash when comes out (default beryl and all the eye
candy) that I think we should replace the old one for a better one,
with the kind more suitable for xubuntu look and feel. You can install
the image into the /usr/share/gimp/2.0/images folder if you want to
try it out. Probably, it wont be the final one because I am still
experimenting with other concept as well. But everyone is welcome to
submit images and maybe we can come up with something really cool
