gegl tool
I am puzzled as to what this GEGL library is for it seems to incorporate things like gausian filters but also brightness and contrast.These seem to do the same as in filter or under color.
Are these intended as improved functions or are they there to complement and to add extra functions

RE: gegl tool
As far as I know these are "experimental" functions that replace some of the standard GIMP ones with standard GEGL ops. They will eventually completely replace the standard Gimp ones,

RE: gegl tool
I have had a go with gegl I think its great I used your answer in
http://gimpforums.com/thread-resize-phot...ing-blurry to try it out
I think the really good thing about it for someone new like me is that with the gausian blur and unsharp mask you have a preview by ticking this on and off you can see how your working image is going to change rather than that small picture you get in filters.
In the attached picture the background is showing gausian blur 10 pixels but by clicking the preview you see you original.
It works the same for the unsharp mask

RE: gegl tool
GEGL is optimized for modern architecture and uses the SSE instructions (and may, in the future, take advantage of the graphics card). So many things run faster and can be applied to the full image in preview (the small preview window you get for many filters is a matter of performance).
