What is Gimel Studio?

Gimel Studio is a software project I started writing in the fall of 2019 to provide a high quality node-based graphics editing program with customizable features via an API to script custom nodes and the ability to run on multiple platforms -yet with minimal dependancies.

It features a node-based workflow for real-time compositing, manipulating, generating and adding effects to images complete with a registry of 15+ nodes and a Python API allowing users to script their own custom nodes.

The software currently provides basic image editing features such as rotate, resize, opacity and blur effects, as well as more advanced editing capabilities such as generating normal maps from images for use in 3D programs like Blender and 3Ds Max.
