I am a huge proponent of the open source platform. Sure, there are two sides to the open source vs. proprietary argument, but it’s still too early in the week to be arguing something that heavy.
There are numerous reasons to use open source software for photo editing. Perhaps you prefer the Linux operating system, maybe you’re on a tight (or nonexistent) budget, or maybe you just wanna “stick it to The Man.” Whatever your reason, there are an increasing number of solutions available to you.
This is where Pixls.us comes in. Founder Pat David started the website as a resource for those looking to use open source editing software. There are treasure troves of information and quality tutorials for applications like Photoshop and Lightroom yet very little (in comparison) for programs like Gimp and Darktable. David aimed to change that.
