Here is my new Darktable Style, almost similar as the "300 Look" Lightroom preset of +Matt Kloskowski  
Also available on http://dtstyle.net/

Voici un style que je viens de composer pour le logiciel libre de traitement photo, Darktable. "The 300" Look s'inspire du film 300. En fait j'ai reproduis au mieux le preset de Matt Kloskowski pour Lightroom. Au final, c'est principalement une correction des couleurs qui tend sur une sorte ...

Nice. I need to give Darktable a workout.  While I'm generally a FLOSS type, I have always enjoyed Bibble/Aftershot Pro and I've neglected the other options.

HDR (tips, Techniques)  - 
 
Sometimes a scene does not need HDR to bring out all of its beauty and potential and a full exposure-merge is not required as it is only a small part of the image that needs to be brought in line with the dynamic range of the overall scene. I those cases, GIMP comes to the…

Just wondering about other people's experiences with reactions to even mentioning the use of FOSS amongst other groups or communities, and what we can do either as a group or individually to demonstrate that 1. We will not sink to their level of behaviour, and 2. explain to them in a rational way, the benefits of FOSS.

I'm wondering, as I've just had the most unpleasant, and ignorant conversation with (and I use this term loosely) Professional Photographers in a Group in Facebook.

The information, and beratment against the use of FOSS, and display of ignorance for their reason's against it was completely bewildering, and they should be ashamed to call themselves Creative Professionals.

With comments like "I have run linux servers for years. BSD actually.", just shows that they are either lying, or just plain ignorant.

Any way, I'm just wondering how others handle situations like this, not only to help myself, but others that have been put into the same situation.

+Nicu Buculei Thanks for the usage example.. It seems we agree that FOSS can do the job (with some caveats). Much success to you.

An image came up in the feed of an Olympus group that I moderate, wherein the member used Helicon to focus-stack a series of images.  That got me thinking, since it's $55 for a year, or $200 for a full license, are there any open source equivalents out there that people use and can recommend?

Here is a new screencast that explains how to create curved gradual transitions (useful for example as layer blend masks) using only linear gradients and the curves tool.

The technique gives full control over the mask shape and edge feathering, which can be edited interactively and non-destructively.

I will soon provide a preset that allows to automate the whole process, so that only the modulation and the transition curves need to be adapted to the specific needs of each image.

ANNOUNCEMENTS  - 
 
If you have a moment and don't mind, consider sharing this to help get the word out there that we are building a community for free-software photography!
 
After almost a year of (slowly) building the site, +Morgan Hardwood convinced me to just go ahead and finish things up and launch...

It is with great pleasure I can finally say that PIXLS.US is finally live!

I have more content in the queue coming soon, but we do have a few articles up at the moment (https://pixls.us/articles), including a great one about luminosity masking by +Ian Hex in darktable.

There is also the blog if you want to follow along (https://pixls.us/blog).

And most recently, we added the forums (https://discuss.pixls.us/).

I don't usually ask those who follow me to do anything, but in this case I hope you'll pardon me asking.  If you don't mind, please consider sharing this with your circles and help me get the word out that there is a community specifically for free-software photography.

Come on by, check things out, sign up at the forum (I made it so you can simply use your google account to log in with - easy!), and help us grow a community!
Well, here we are. I just checked the first blog post and it was dated August 24th, 2014. I had probably been working on the back end of the site getting things running for the basic blog setup a few weeks prior to that. It's almost been a full year since I started working on this idea.
