A little while ago I made a video for the Photographer's Gallery, for their Green Hacks series, on how to optimize images for the web. They've just published it.

It is basically a video version of this page on my website: https://kokorobot/site/leanimages.html

Edited with Blender, uploaded on very slow internet over many hours.

@rek nice video! How steep was the learning curve for switching to Blender for video editing? I use a free but closed-source videoeditor and keep meaning to replace it

@voxel Not overly steep, honestly. I used Premiere and other video editing tools in the past (way back when), and Blender is just as good.

There are tons of good tutorials online too that help with setup. It can be a bit tricky to figure out where things are at first, but editing itself is pretty intuitive.

@rek I love it. I should use more those options and start using the ones I didn't know! Thank you. Also, the background music is captivating, what is it?

@rek @neauoire Btw, your site's url seems wrong (lacking the tld... probably copied from your local server)

@tagomago @neauoire I posted that first toot a bit too quickly XD. I've added the correct link in another toot :>.

@neauoire 🤔 Can't find it on Bandcamp... though it shares a similar mood with "Short Stories In Impossible Spaces" and some tracks of "Verreciel". But this one is even more delicate. Love those "Bach-ian" hints (as they sound to me).

@rek Lovely, lovely! 👏

Shameless plug for because smol is 🌍 💚

@tickfoot and it is very welcome ^____^! Lichen is fantastic.

@rek Thank you, learned a lot! If you want to automate actions in Gimp, you can use ScriptFu, which support Scheme and Python. I used it to adjust colors and filters the exact same way for a bunch of images.

@rek excellent tutorial! I'll be sharing this with students and friends, as well as show this as a model for how to do a good video tutorial!
