First Café of 2018 just started. :)

Two chances for Free Software artists and designers to meet up with fellow artists and developers at Libre Graphics Meeting 2018 in Seville, and for the first time this year Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) will have a Libre Graphics track also!

Come say hello to @GIMP devs at LGM, or my presentation on GIMP at SCaLE!


There is a version of over at Flathub. Please help test it. :)


Friends don't let friends get hooked on #Adobe and #Autodesk subscriptions. Share this article to help them start on the path to using free and open tools (e.g. #B3D #Inkscape #Krita #Kdenlive #GIMP). free.dijt.co/just-say-no-to-so

A new 2.9.8 release of @GIMP is now available (windows and macOS builds to follow)!


Have a look at some of the great new features (on-canvas gradient editing, clip warning, wayland support, paste in place, and more)!

Happy to see @archillect and @OpenCulture tooting over here even they are mirrors. (At least one of them is, I think)

I've setup an unofficial (for the time being) room. I recommend using on your phone to access it.


Let's chat.

"Well, I think we’ve gotten ourselves into a fix with our natural environment. We keep building and destroying and growing, and I worry that we might jeopardize everything if we can’t slow down and reexamine what we’re doing. Part of why I’m interested in studying these lost cultures is to understand how humans have lived for 95 percent of our existence, and to remind myself that things could be otherwise."
