This is just a quick, short post to claim an image that I have remixed, as a derivative work, for use on the HIVE social blockchain.
Creating a divider for the Filipino Hive community.
This post documents my creation of a remixed image, for use as a divider in blog posts, primarily intended for use by the 🇵🇭 Filipino community on the HIVE social blockchain. It came about as a discussion ensued today in The Terminal's Discord server, about a friend of @mhel, who is in need of some support from the community at present, due to the medical issues he's facing in the Philippines. This is one way that I can contribute to this cause. I will be releasing the resultant remixed image under the most permissive license available, depending on any restrictions imposed by the respective licenses of the component source images.

Creating the remix.
- GIMP v2.10.18 – My Raster image editor of choice is GIMP. I have been using this tool for many years, and I am fairly proficient with many of its features. A raster image editor like GIMP is designed for editing pixel-based images.
- Inkscape v0.92.5 – My Vector image editor of choice is Inkscape, which I have not been using for as long as GIMP, and I am still learning about many of its features. A vector image editor like Inkscape is designed for editing lineart images.
The creative process.
Licensing the remixed image.
In the component source images table above, you may notice that one of the source components (in fact, it is the HIVE logo), is licensed with a Creative Commons CC-BY-SA license. The SA here stands for "share alike", and this means that for any derivative work which includes that source component, the subsequent remixed image must be licensed with the same, or a similar / compatible license. In this instance, it requires the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license. Therefore, my remix will be released under the same license terms, which means that you are free:
- to share – to copy, distribute and transmit the work
- to remix – to adapt the work
- attribution – You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
- share alike – If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same or compatible license as the original.

I will judge the best comment subjectively, so please make them sincere. Apparently @camlara is still in hospital in the Philippines, after surgery for removing a tumour in the intestinal tract, according to @mhel. I don't speak Filipino, so I will rely on a translator, and I also have a Filipino friend here in Auckland, New Zealand, whom I will call upon to help me with the judging.
