Libre Graphics Vienna at the Metalab


I am announcing this here because I know that there are at least several members who live in Vienna.

@reox and I are trying to start a new user group for open source photography and graphics software in Vienna, Austria. We are planning monthly meetings at the Metalab (, Rathausstraße 6, 1010 Wien) that will take place on the first Thursday of each month.

The first meeting will be on March 2nd, 18:30 CET.

The topics of the first meeting will be how to best organize the group and probably a bit old and new workflows in darktable. Other possibilities are RawTherapee (local adjustments) and converting scanned negatives to positives.

From today’s perspective, the program for the next months will be: darktable, RawTherapee, monitor/projector calibration and profiling, converting analog negatives, vkdt, Fediverse for photographers and artists, and Inkscape.

Of course we hope that other people who can use software such as GIMP, Krita, Blender, Kdenlive etc. will make suggestions for workshops and presentations.

Please come if you are in Vienna!

Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it in February/March… Have a great meeting and see you in Spring!

That’s really a pity since you would be a good “candidate” for compiling vkdt on MacOS I think…
