GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 349224
Creative Commons licenses integration
Last modified: 2018-05-24 11:53:06 UTC
It would be great if GIMP could show current image's Creative Commons license on the image info page if it's available.
It should be an option to license a new image with a CC license as well.
Info about this:
IIRC, this is supposed to be handled by the metadata plug-in which is being developed for GIMP 2.4. Feel free to contribute to this plug-in.
Yes, embedding the Creative Commons licenses has been one of the goals of the metadata editor since the beginning. The goal is that the "Copyright" tab of the editor should contain a configurable drop-down list of licenses to be added to the image. That list would be pre-initialized with the Creative Commons licenses (at least the share alike licenses, I don't plan to add the non commercial licenses). This will follow the same model as the one used for Adobe applications:
As for displaying the license added to an image, this should be part of the image info dialog once the support for metadata is integrated into the gimp core (so that any updates can be seen immediately, etc.).
In any case, contributions to the metadata editor are welcome.
Should we close this report as duplicate of the metadata editor bug then or make it depend on it?
Confirming and adding dependency on bug #61499.
Once the editor is ready, this bug report will serve as a reminder to include the CC licenses in the default build.
Bug #61499 was moved to 2.8 milestone, doing the same for this one.
With the current estimates we won't have time to do this for 2.8. And it's not really a very important feature. Moving to Future.
