GIMP Magazine is a brand new publication that features the amazing works created from this world wide community. Photography, digital arts, graphic arts, design, tips & tricks, step by step tutorials, master classes, help desk questions, book and product reviews and so much more are showcased and explored in this quarterly publication. This publication is available for free and is licensed Creative Commons CC-AT-SA 2.5.
Issue #1 is complete and will launch in the Fall 2012. We are quite pleased with how this issue turned out and we look forward to publishing on a quarterly basis. Issue #1 is exactly 50 pages using a traditional 8.125" x 10.75" magazine style layout that is best viewed using facing page mode. We will be releasing a standard screen resolution PDF, an elegant PDF viewing experience through www.issuu.com/GIMPMagazine and we also have an ePub version already in the works.
We will be posting some magazine previews during the month of August on Google+ (https://plus.google.com/u/0/116869971719072318131/posts ) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/GIMPMagazine ).
Do us a favor and help spread the word. Blog about this, tweet it, facebook it, google+ it, tell your friends, tell your mom, what ever! Spread the GIMP, GIMP Magazine!
