[Ardour-Users] Ardour FLOSS Manual: call for GIMP wizard

Hi all,

the Ardour FLOSS Manual is complete (for now), and it looks really 
damned good on the screen:


However, Ardour's UI color/contrast scheme (gray on gray) doesn't lend 
itself well to the printed page. Adam Hyde and I wanted to ask if there 
was anyone on the FLOSS Manuals, Ardour-Users or Linux-Audio-User lists 
who could help.

We had the idea that someone with good GIMP skills could work out a 
decent contrast-correction that could be applied to all the images to 
make them more print-friendly, and then simply execute those parameters 
on the entire manual's worth of images as a batch action (preserving the 
folder structures, of course!).

The images can be downloaded here:


Please let us know on or off list if you can help with this. I imagine 
the corrected images would only be applied to the print version of the 
manual as it is available via Lulu.com. (This manual will not be marked 
up for profit, by the way!)
