Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
hook_image_effect_info() allows you to include a 'help' text with your effect definition.
"help": (optional) A brief description of the effect that will be shown when adding or configuring this image effect.
image_effect_form() never displays the help text.
Fix: Display the $effect['help'] information if present at the top of the effect add/edit form.
