This month in Linux Voice.

Linux has taken heat in the past for what opponents perceive as a dearth of viable image processing tools. But as you know if you've read this magazine, we would never accept that characterization for the powerful and freewheeling Linux. The Linux community has lots of great tools for photo enthusiasts, and, unlike the closed-source equivalents, all the best stuff is totally free. In this month's LinuxVoice, we explore the G'MIC digital image processing framework. The developers refer to G'MIC as "…the open-source interpreter of the G'MIC language, a script-based programming language dedicated to the design of possibly complex image processing pipelines and operators." We'll show you how to use the versatile G'MIC to balance, brighten, and sharpen your images – or add hundreds of other filters and special effects. And while we're on the subject of images: When you're ready for the third dimension, check out our tutorial on Blender 3D animation.
