Welcome to the PIXLS.US discussion!

This is a community for discussing posts from the website as well as a place for photography (and free software) enthusiasts of all levels to learn and share with each other.

The mission statement of PIXLS.US is:

To provide tutorials, workflows and a showcase for high-quality photography and cinematography using Free/Open Source Software.

This community will be what we all put into it. So let’s build something awesome!

As you take a look around the site, notice that the category called PIXLS.US is specifically for topics that come directly from the website (blog posts and articles). Replies in those topics will show up embedded on the website (it will look just like comments).

###@ Mentions
If you need to poke anyone by name, you can use @-mentions, so if you want to get the attention of Pat David, you can simply mention his username: @patdavid.

Formatting Posts

The editor accepts Markdown for formatting. Some simple examples:

*emphasis* = emphasis
**bold** = bold
[link text](http://link-url) = link text

* list item
* list item 2

  • list item 1
  • list item 2

The editor also does “oneboxing”, so links alone on a line will try to create a nice snippet automatically:


will produce:

This also works nicely with sites such as Flickr:


As well as 500px:

Thanks for catching that. I had to move it out of the staff category. :slight_smile:

It’d be nice to mention the GitHub community and it’s projects as being a place to contribute!

A post was split to a new topic: Win 32 Build Please?

Thanks for building the site. I’ve been an ardent Foss/video person for about 18 mos, and it’s been very challenging. For starters, I had to buy specific equipment to use Free formats, such as MJPEG. But, I’ve managed to find some jewels in the software and hardware arena that enable the FOSS idea, and actually work pretty well. I have a Pentax K5 II, which uses the free MJPEG format, in full HD, and I make great use of blender for color grading.

I was unaware of Natron, which I’ll be trying soon. This site has broadened my arsenal quite a bit already. Thanks!
