Man-hours saved from user downloading/using scripts/plug-ins

Post#1 by tim » 01 Jun 2019, 18:02


This is just for fun to estimate rough ideas of how many years of working GIMP Learn forum has saved
for users who download/use scripts/plug-ins.
Enjoy.

It's interesting because we're making an impact around the world in saving man-hours.

I just recently added resource files estimates as well...since if people use existing resources (ie. custom fonts, brushes) it also saves them man-hours in creating it themselves.

Now if you click on member's networth page, you'll see under their fun $dollar amount networth,
you'll also see their number work hours/weeks/years they have helped saved (rough estimate based on 10 uses per download 15minute saved each use) through their scripts/plug-ins/resources downloads.

That's pretty difficult for me to quantify at this point, since I'm still so new at all of this. Mostly I use the forum to learn how to do things, most of which there isn't (yet) a plugin for. I expect that the one plugin you helped me create (Image Crop) will save me a ton of time over future years of scrapbooking, though.
GIMP Learn rocks...

Custom font making took days - now it takes minutes.

Yeah some scripts such as custom fonts definitely saves more hours than the metrics I used.
I don't even think my metrics used is accurate but I'd like to keep consistent so that we can compare numbers (for fun).
But yeah some scripts are more effective at saving time than others such as custom font scripts.
