I suggest this wallpaper for the next release of linux mint. I named it Crystal Mint (for ICS theme). What do you think?

Quick question: supposing I take a macro photo of some mint in my back garden, and want to submit it as-is (i.e. just the photo, no layers, no text, no vector shapes or anything), would a .tif, a .raw or a .jpg be acceptable in those circumstances?

I am using old MGI Photo Suite 4. I love it. The layers manipulation is amazing, I use .png or .jpg to edit a photo. No need the layers to cut out some portion of a photo and apply to another. If I will want to edit someone photo, I will ask for permition. We need a "photo open source web" site, where some upload a photo to it with understanding, that the photo contents can be change. There is a bunch of web site,, that you can upload a photo - I use imgur.
My username is "nodestination". You can download,print the photo, but you will still need the author permition to edit the photo.
Create the web site or portion of forum for Mint open source artwork.

If I spent a long time on a wallpaper design, the very last thing in the world I would do is release the components for it for free.

That seems ridiculous to me. Where's the advantage?

The advantage is that other can build upon what you have made and the results can benefit all of us. The advantage is that we will all have more options and nicer wallpapers.
Have you heard of open source software? It's like that.

Yet presumably you are happy to use a free operating system, despite many people having spent a lot of time and effort to develop it.

Go for it - see how much people are willing to pay . . . . good luck with that since there is so much FREE wallpaper out there and pretty good stuff too.

I didn't say I was in the business.

And please pay attention. We were talking about releasing all the components of the image that make it up rather than the flattened final product (the "layers/objects/text" elements referred to by the OP). Those components would be grabbed by someone else to what? Take all the credit for the originator's work?

That's exactly NOT how almost every open source license works.

When you create something, you're the creator of it, and that can not be changed.

Usage is a different thing.

Like I said: to build upon. Please pay attention. :wink:
Funny how you only respond to remarks that you think you can easily refute! It almost makes me think you're not arguing in good faith... :?
