Oh my! GIMP has now layer support for TIFF (thanks Tobias Ellinghaus from ) and a revamped Curves tool interface control+click to add a point that snaps to the current curve, adding sharp point instead of soft and even the point selection that seems to be much better (it tries to select without changing its position)

Well done and thanks @GIMP

@ohyran @lgm @aiscarvalho @rlafuente yup, same here. Libre might be quite easier to explain and spread. FLOSS can always raise some eyebrows specially in marketing department etc (even though it might be less ambiguous) 🤔

@inkscape workshop was really cool. Learn some tricks wrt alpha version; exchange techniques and shortcuts and most of all we could express and influence the upcoming version! The developers really listened and were eager to share and discuss. And play with amusing laser cuts toys by Jürgen Weigert ❤️. devs were there as well and so I couldn't resist but show my appreciation by giving to every developer (present) from these lovely tools ❤️🤩 THANK YOU!

#lgm19 Presentation after that was someone suggesting that the open source graphics community should consider coming up with certification process for the floss art programs, so that there's a way for artists to show proficiency with the components without just showing pretty pictures.

It seemed this is also to have some kind of alternative to university degrees, esp. for self-taught people or dropouts.

Really enjoy Tatica's talk and her idea for a design/art academy/certificate for libre artists/designers @libregraphicsmeeting source

So interesting talk by Ana Isabel and Ricardo Lafuente ❤️ terminology is indeed important!

All schools in #Kerala / #India will switch to #FreeSoftware: "More than Rs 3,000-crore savings, we feel the key advantage of going for free OS is the ability to study, share, edit and publish without restrictions. In the education sector, this dissemination value is more crucial than costs", says Anjali Krishnan. financialexpress.com/industry/ #education #OpenSource

The first time I tried Linux out was with @kde with or even but since then somehow I drifted away (either from Linux altogether) or to a more Gnome based distros these last years. But let me tell you how well impressed I am with the current . After trying it out on Neon and Kubuntu live flash drive it's now my default DE! I urge you to try it out as well. Plus it made my battery last an extra hour or so.

@garrett @ohyran @UBports I also had some problems in the past I always end up falling, but it was in the time were there was no such friendly installer available (or at least in the platform I tried [mac] ) but doing on a Linux distro was really that simple and really fast.

@ohyran I have it on my old tablet (nexus 7) and I haven't had any troubles :) I even managed to install a bunch of card games available for ubuntu desktop through libertine! Regarding the installation I had a bit of hiccup with the snap but everything went smoothly when I tried to install through .deb. Good luck :)
