Maybe a better way then Script-fu.

Just read this from a link from Slashdot. GEGL looks like cool stuff and an easy way to work interactively with an image. I do not know if you will be able to save your "trees", but I'm assuming you will. If so, this will be an answer to PS's Actions.

Edit:

I just read some more and I'm underestimating the power of it. It will handle colorspace, high bit dimensions, and so much more. Will it be the PS killer for the GIMP? Doubtful, but still it's amazing how much research is still going on for GIMP. I'm also keeping an eye on CinePaint (Glasgow), but GIMP would be much prefered.

Re: Maybe a better way then Script-fu.

Is this pretty cool? Yes, but it is not new.
In the late 90's Quark worked with a Japanese fim to come up with something
very very similar. It was also supposed to be a PS kller. It did many things
that a lot of people still wish that PS could do. But there was no commitment from people to market it or to even purchase it,
Off hand I can think of a couple other programs that gave Photoshop a run for its money.
There was even a program written by the Kruger brothers called xRes that was later purchased by Macromedia that outdid Photoshop in just about every way. It was a combination of Live Picture, Painter, and Photoshop. It even shared the same key commands. You could have multiple color spaces in the same file.. really cool stuff. Had it been a little faster with larger files it might have made some headway in the masive base camp that Photoshop had.
But the big problem with any program that wants to take on PS is that there are to many workflows and companies that depend on PS and would never make a switch.

i was under the impression that john sculley did a poor job to market the strengths of Live Picture and then once Corel got a hold of it it was never to be seen again...
