Cool!

In fact, Git is great when you have multiple branches on the same project. I discovered that with SourceTree.

Ok.

In this case is just a mirror for convenience. I've created this some years ago but just remember today that I must update it ;)

But I follow some projects that has branches and that feature is really cool.

Hello!

I have included the examples with the latest version of BGRABitmap (8.7). That makes it easier to download if you are using zip files.

I have found some way to reduce the file size to 1MB only by reducing the size of icons and images and merging two folders.

Enjoy!

What do you think about doing a graphics contest with BGRABitmap?
With categories like:
- UI Design: Includes creating a control or just UI elements.
- Photo manipulation: Editing photos by code, creating custom filters and so on.
- Generated textures: Creating textures by code.
Everyone can send their application. Only one participation per category. Requisite is using BGRABitmap only. Time until a month of the day of started the contest, for example.
The decision of the best project is up to you or one or more users. Or can be done with a poll.
And the winner.. wins ;)
Everything made in the contest will be stored in a public repository so everyone gets benefit of this contest.
And finally we can upload a YouTUBE video with all the stuff. If this works we can do it monthly.

It sounds good from the begining to the end.  :)

Doing it every month, hmm, I am not convinced there will be enough people for that!

Hmm what are categories for? To make it easier to compare?

Nice!

In fact it can be any time or when an ammount of people is reached.

Hmm what are categories for? To make it easier to compare?

Yes for that. There is a winner for each category. We compare the same kind of content. But can be a single one, it does not matter too much.

It could have all categories winner too.
Although I think we need a first run for estimation.

Good idea. Well I think circular must make the thread and be the jury. But if he wants to participate a poll will be required.

I want to participate too :)

I would prefer a poll, that would be more democratic.  8-)

I guess we can suggest categories but let people do what they want. And in the end, we can consider multiple winners.

Does that sound good?

What time do we let for people to do their software? One month? That would be up to the 12th of august. Two month? That would be up to the 12th of september? Maybe people do other things in september and would could say up to the 31th of august.

I think one month for example up to 13th august is a good start,after that when people wants more time then you can decide but one month is long enough I think.

Ok. The last thing is if we can upload only one or multiple software. For example If I choose to make an UI and a Photo manipulation, I can upload both or I must choose one? (for that was the main idea of categories, to participate in different ways).

Edit: maybe is ok, put the categories and just let the participants do what they want, and limit the number of submitted works to 2 per participant. For example..

What time do we let for people to do their software? One month? That would be up to the 12th of august. Two month? That would be up to the 12th of september? Maybe people do other things in september and would could say up to the 31th of august.

I think one month for example up to 13th august is a good start,after that when people wants more time then you can decide but one month is long enough I think.

Just create the thread now. The rest are details that can be finished on the go. No one will be angry for that :)
