I usually draw. But last week I was on holidays at Rügen, the biggest isle of Germany located at the baltic sea and did some fotos with my camera. The challenge is about to take some shots to use as wallpaper. There are 5 at https://www.jmerten.com/backgrounds/

Nice work.

I think Rügen has some notoriety for the Colossus of Prora.

I played with ImageMagick and created a 'montage' or a contact print.

I like both the original pictures and your montages. So much that I am now considering using montages as wallpaper.

By the way, do you know if there is a specific reason why ImageMagick is not in the Trisquel 9 repo? I just noticed they have an AppImage, but I have a vague memory I had been installing it from the Add/Remove Applications utility on T8.

They are both there, the fork included.

sudo apt install imagemagick

or

sudo apt install graphicsmagick

I see, thank you.

Something must have gone wrong when looking for it in Synaptic (rebuilding index or so). It just transpired that it was in fact already installed, but hidden from the main menu. It did not start when called from the menu, so I used the display command. Maybe that is why I had decided to hide it from the menu at some point.

Thanks for hinting to the fork too, I like the logo especially.

I used to have this picture I took to an insect around 10 years ago as wallpaper:
