Happy 2nd Birthday Discuss

Time keeps on slippin'

May 12th, 2017

I was idling in our IRC chat room earlier when @Morgan_Hardwood wished us all a “Happy Discuss Anniversary”. Wouldn’t you know it, another year slipped right by! (Surely there’s no way it could already be a year since the last birthday post? Where does the time go?)

Welcome digiKam!

Lending a helping hand

May 3rd, 2017

This years Libre Graphics Meeting (2017) is going to be held in the lovely city seen above, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! This is an important meeting for so many people in the Free/Libre art community as it’s one of the only times they have an opportunity to meet face to face.

Hello!

I’m Pat David.

I write tutorials about photography and workflows based on using Free and Open Source software.

So What’s Coming?

I’ve been writing about high-quality photography workflows on my blog. However, I felt the community could use a good website dedicated to F/OSS photography that wasn’t just about me. (Well, mostly).

We have all of these amazing projects creating fantastic software, and we could use a place to help everyone realize their full potential (theirs and the software).
