Finding the right image for a splash is always a tedious process… We had a couple of ideas rendered with the sheep, Victor, and the tornado, but in the end we settled on the cute Franck-caterpillar.
(edited post, june 13)
The colors from the splash were too saturated. What happened? This is what I found so far.
The newly exported splash now has a color profile too (why?). And it even looks different than the original caterpillar.
And worse, on Mac OS X (GIMP 2.8.14) it assigns it a different profile than on Linux.

Anyone has info about what I am doing wrong here? Note that I use GIMP’s default install; no CM was changed.
This is the splash now. Solved by setting GIMP’s default sRGB profile first, then copy/paste. To compare, the bad one is the second, below.
