Libre Graphics World is an online magazine for creatives using free applications for digital painting, graphic and web design, desktop publishing, photography and CAD. We focus on news, tutorials and articles to provide you most up to date information about evolution of these applications and best practices.

Free software is a rapidly evolving niche, we feel that this fact should be better represented on the Web which is exactly what we do. In many ways foundation of this project was triggered by Ginger Coons’s talk “Ownership and Standards: Why Designers are Slow to Adopt Open Source”.

We also happen to cover selected proprietary software that works on Linux if it's interesting enough, has no direct free software alternative, and/or has developers who are friendly towards libre software.


We are interested to hear from you what topics you would us to cover next, what new interesting applications we missed, what excellent work was done using free software.

There are different ways to get in touch with us. First of all, you can mail. We also actively maintain a Twitter account, and a Google+ page where we post interesting things related to free software that don't fit a full-fledged article.

The Team

We are a small team of people who participate in free open source software projects.
