Community member Bri recently started doing her live stream of image editing again!

It also happens that she’s doing a giveaway of her old camera to help new users! Head over to her Patreon and check out the details to enter!

You don’t have to be a pledge to enter, but she’s super cool and helping others - so kick in a bit if you can spare it!

This Saturday at 2PM CST our friend Bri (ChicagoCameraSlinger on the pixls forums) will be starting up the Live Editing Sessions again by messing around with the new darktable modules on some of the amazing raw files provided by the PIXLS.US community.

Follow her at to get notified when she goes live!

The annual Libre Graphics Meeting is May 29 - June 2 in Saarbrücken, Germany this year and there will be a bunch of photo nerds from the PIXLS.US community in attendance! Come join us (or even better - present something - we'll help)!

We've decided to remove all Google Analytics tracking from the site. Less tracking = happier users.

Well, it's an end of the year trifecta! First RawTherapee, then darktable, and now the wonderful folks at digiKam have a new (beta) release available! Congrats to the team!

@patdavid I've been using the darktable pre-releases for a few weeks now and absolutely love all the new features. They're all "killer features", IMHO. The new masking, filmic, retouch, collect improvements — everything.

This is such an amazing release!

@patdavid What's super cool is that the new version darktable even helps better recover some great images that I goofed up with when shooting or were challenging with the dynamic range.

And the filmic module can even help fix up old JPEGs from ages ago (before I shot raw) and also cell phone snapshots. It's not just for raw files. 😁

And the masking is phenomenal. It's probably the biggest game changer, as it works with basically all the other modules.

in a great end-of-the-year tradition, the nerds at darktable have a brand-spanking new 2.6 release now available!

congratulations darktable team on a fantastic release!

also, contributor Matthieu Moy has written up an extensive blog post detailing some of the awesome new features - give it a read as well:

This is legit the carpet pattern in my hotel room in New Orleans.

Wish me luck.

Community member Chris takes the time to assemble an awesome calendar based on results from several of our Play Raw posts throughout the year.

Remember you can download the raw files for any of these images to practice with as well!

I made a website for the Libre Graphics Meeting 2019 in Saarbrücken, Germany next year!

It's not the official site - they went a different direction, but I figured rather than letting the design languish I would at least share it...
