When evaluating filters we got convinced that the amount of filters in core GIMP needs to be reduced, so that only the ones which effects fit user scenarios stay.
- some filters can be straight away changed into additional plugins (ex.Depth Merge), some need to be improved to stay in core GIMP (ex.Glass Tile, Newsprint)
- there should be better parameters, not so technical (ex.Emboss)
- more interactive, UI more straightforward
- preview should be available
- not parametrized filters might become modes
- better categorization in menu
As a result we can discuss which filters need improvements, which shouldn't stay in core GIMP, and which should be kept far away from it.
