About Linux Graphics Users.com
Linux Graphics Users.com is a forum created by artists, for everyone in the Linux community. This forum is about people like you and me who want to learn about graphics art & design. It doesn't matter whether you're a beginner or you hold a degree in Graphics Art. This is where we make graphics art fun. Everyone is welcome.
Here is where to come if you have an idea about an art project but not sure how to get started. You'll find we're a friendly bunch ready to jump in and help. You'll also find plenty to read like our Member Spotlight or our feature Tribute to Distro Art Teams. You can jump in and participate in our ongoing discussions on Linux in the world of art & entertainment and Linux Graphics Software / Applications.
It is true that most of the Linux graphics software listed on our site has their own forums (some more than one).... But, LGU is much more than just about the software, or the distro... Here is where we come together to share advice, tips & tricks, tutorials to help each other without having to talk about which distro is better than that one. There are more than enough of those places on the web for that... this is about art, and people who are interested in art, and anything related to it from basic wallpapers.... to designing / creating entire window decorator themes, icons, bootsplashes, photography, printing, etc
Linux Graphics Users.com, is a young community. We opened our doors on December 8, 2007 hosted by http://www.smffree.com/free-forum.php
and were off to a great start. But, over time we realized we would need more control over the forum, on the backend to build our community around our members to give them the most pleasant experience we could.
This brought us to the decision to sign on with http://www.lunarpages.com
as our new host, and then went to http://www.simplemachines.org
for their wonderful forum software. Our search for a new host took a bit longer than intended but, we wanted to be sure we were getting the best we could.
We are still under construction in a few areas, but we are getting closer to our goal each day. And we strongly encourage our members to make suggestions and express their ideas & thoughts on every level... and we strive to please as many as we can, without compromising our original idea. We are still considering whether to incorporate a http://coppermine-gallery.net
gallery or not, or something similar, but the topic will be discussed more within the community when the time is right.
If you are have any interest in art / design on the Linux platform.... then Linux Graphics Users.com is the place for you.
We look forward to seeing you here http://linuxgraphicsusers.com
So come on, register and introduce yourself, and have fun.
