Fake Tilt Shift with Inkscape

September 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

A while ago I did a screencast to show that Inkscape has some capabilities for editing raster graphics. I also explained in the video the differences between masks and clip paths. But the screencast was in german and so some people asked me in IRC if I can do it in english also. Now I had some time and did it.

Inkscape-Workshop

September 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

Ich habe vor einer ganzen Weile bereits einmal gefragt, ob noch Interesse an einem “längerem” Inkscape-Workshop besteht. Das hatten einige, vor etwa einem Jahr angeregt, ob das nicht einmal möglich wäre. Scheinbar besteht auch noch Interesse daran, einige haben sich daraufhin bei mir gemeldet.

Fehlt jetzt nur noch ein Termin und da habe ich jetzt einen und zwar das erste Oktoberwochenende: 05.-07. Oktober 2012 in Chemnitz. Denjenigen, die nach dem letzten Blogpost sich bei mir gemeldet haben, habe ich den Termin schon per E-Mail geschickt und von einigen auch schon Rückantwort erhalten.

Es sind aber noch “Plätze” frei, ich muss hier einfach eine Obergrenze setzen auf Grund der Raumgröße. Es gilt ganz einfach das FIFO-Prinzip. Fall dann doch mehr Interesse haben, als Plätze möglich sind, ist eine Wiederholung möglich allerdings erst Ende November. Wer jetzt daran teilnehmen will, schreibt mir einfach eine Mail (buergermeister@diesedomain).

Kosten: An Kosten entstehen nur die Reise- und Unterkunftskosten, übernachten kann man in Chemnitz bekanntlich zu vernünftigen Preisen zB hier. Nur ist die Anreise mit zB der Bahn etwas umständlicher. Für den Workshop selbst nehme ich keine Kosten, da aber einige derer, die sich bereits angemeldet haben gesagt haben, dass sei nicht fair, stelle ich einfach mal den Hut hin ;)

Zeitrahmen: da einige schon einen weiteren Weg haben und bestimmt auch etwas lernen möchten, nutzen wir die Zeit natürlich so gut wie möglich aus. In Abhängigkeit der Anreise, bereits am Freitag Abend, 1 oder 2h. Am Samstag ca. von 09.00 – bis Open End, wobei ich denke trotzdem spätestens 22.30 sollte Schluß sein. Am Sonntag dann auch 09.00-18.00, wobei das auch hier von den Teilnehmern abhängt.
Falls es jetzt noch Fragen gibt, bitte auch per Mail oder Kommentar.

GIMP Magazine Issue 1

September 5th, 2012 von buergermeister

Seit einigen Monaten ist das neue GIMP Magazin ja bereits angekündigt, die Macher waren scheinbar mehr damit beschäftigt Shops anzulegen, als das Magazin zu erschaffen. Ausgabe 1 enthält neben einem Review der Version von 2.8 von GIMP, mehreren Seiten Ressourcen, ein Making-Of zu einem manipuliertem Foto, ein Artikel zur HDR-Fotografie und ein Interview eines Fotografen der nur mit GIMP und UFRaw arbeitet. Das eine User Gallery natürlich nicht fehlen darf ist klar.  Die Macher hinter dem Magazin möchten gern wissen, wie ihr das Magazin findet und haben dazu einen Fragebogen bei surveymonkey angelegt. Das Magazin gibt es zum Online lesen und Download bei Issue.com. Ich packe mal hier den Direktlink zur PDF-Downloadversion hin. Die Macher des Magazin weisen darauf hin, dass die Druckversion dort nicht der Weisheit letzter Schluss ist und sie für Ausgabe 2 eine Druckversion planen. Na dann viel Spaß beim lesen.

    Her mit den Wallpapern!

    August 21st, 2012 von buergermeister

    Linux und freie Software lebt ja bekanntlich vom mit machen. Viele Nutzer wissen allerdings nie, wie ihr Beitrag aussehen soll. Eine der wohl einfachsten Möglichkeiten beizutragen, ist mal seine Fotos durch zu sehen, ob da nicht ein toller Schnappschuss der Wallpaper-verdächtig ist, dabei ist. Auf diese Weise kann man, wenn nur einen kleinen Beitrag zu seiner Lieblingsdistribution leisten.

    Ubuntu ist derzeitig auf der Suche nach zusätzlichen Wallpapern für Quantal Quetzal und hier hat man noch bis zum 28. August Zeit zur entsprechenden Flickr-Gruppe beizusteuern. Hier ist allerdings die Anzahl auf nur einen Beitrag, der mit CC-BY-SA lizensiert sein muß, begrenzt. Die Auswahl findet später öffentlich im IRC #1210wallpaper statt.

    Ebenfalls auf der Suche nach zusätzlichen Hintergründen ist man derzeit bei Fedora, hier hat man allerdings noch bis zum 5. September Zeit seine Beiträge einzureichen. Hier ist die Anzahl allerdings nicht begrenzt, alle Beiträge sollten ebenfalls unter CC-BY-SA oder einer ähnlichen Lizenz stehen. Zusätzlich verlangt Fedora allerdings das man das Contributors License Agreement im Fedora Account System akzeptiert. Die Beiträge werden bei Fedora in deren Wiki gesammelt. Dort findet man auch mehr Hinweise zur Gestaltung der gewünschten Wallpaper und deren Anforderungen.

    Call for Supplemental Wallpapers

    August 19th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Fedora brings in addition to the great design standard wallpaper always supplementary wallpapers. That wallpapers are collected from the community and the best 15 of them are chosen from the Design Team and packaged. Now its time to collect that supplementary wallpapers for Fedora 18 “Spherical Cow“.

    There are some restrictions for what can be submitted some are technical nature:

    • Must use a format that can be read by software available in Fedora Package Collection. Preferred image formats include SVG and PNG. Master files, which may be further edited, should be maintained in non-lossy formats. Preserving vector graphics, raster layers, and channels is important for such materials.
    • Originals for landscape formats must be a minimum of 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. The larger the better. Photographic submissions should be made at the highest resolution the camera is capable of.
    • Should be provided in a 16 x 9 aspect ratio when possible.
    • No watermarks, signatures, photographer/creator names, or messages may be included in any part of the work. However if the license allows, and the photo is compelling enough, we could remove watermarks.

    some are more organizational nature:

    • Must be covered by the Contributor License Agreement. We cannot accept contributions from individuals who have not signed the CLA in the Fedora Account System. The CLA allows us to properly license artwork submissions for distribution with Fedora and other Fedora projects.
    • Must not contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright infringement. If your submissions include or derive from artwork created by other people, please make sure the license of the original work you incorporate is compatible with Fedora and that you are not violating any of the provisions of its license. Just because a work is licensed with a Creative Commons license does not mean it is free to use (make sure you provide attribution to artists that license their work with a CC Attribution clause.)
    • Should have the consent and approval of the author or creator
    • Are thereby licensed to the public for reuse under CC-BY-SA unless specifically identified as being licensed by another approved liberal open source license. See a list of approved licenses for Fedora

    The deadline until you can submit your artwork is the 5th of September 2012 23:59 UTC. You can submit your material directly to the wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F18_Artwork/Submissions/Supplemental_Wallpapers. For further questions, you can send me a mail gnokii@fedoraproject.org. I am looking forward to many great submissions…

    Fake Tilt Shift mit Inkscape

    August 15th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Es ist wieder einmal Zeit für einen Screencast rund um Inkscape. Dieses Mal zeige ich wie man mit Inkscape eine Tilt Shift Grafik faked. Das Ergebnis dieser Bilder sieht dann aus, als ob man Miniaturen anstatt des Originales geschossen hat. Das Ganze läßt sich auch ohne die entsprechenden Objekte durch digitale Nachbearbeitung erreichen. Da es sich dabei eigentlich um Rastergrafiken handelt, ist man mit einem Werkzeug wie GIMP eigentlich besser beraten. Allerdings verfügt Inkscape auch über Funktionen, mit den man Rastergrafiken bearbeiten kann. Neben diesen Funktionen, wird in diesem Screencast auf Masken und Ausschneidepfade eingegangen.

    Also viel Spaß beim anschauen und nachmachen, Kritiken und Anregungen wie immer in die Kommentare.

    Face of Spherical Cow

    August 11th, 2012 von buergermeister

    The Design Team had yesterday again a little meeting/hackfest for working on the design for Spherical Cow. And this is the result of the hackfest:

    We merged Mizmos Steel Background with my spherical Nebulas. It looks beautiful now, from tha far it looks a little bit like snowflakes but it are definitly Qubits ;) Martin already packaged the background and it  just needs some reviews.

    backlog clipart campaign

    August 2nd, 2012 von buergermeister

    As I am running since a month a little campaign, its time to look for the results. Friends of mine started a campaign to collect money for new hardware for me and as I am feeling not so well accepting such gifts, I decided to draw for each 10€ a clipart and upload it to the OpenClipartLibrary. That means they are public domain then and useable for any purpose.

    So thats what I am published last month. So that are 30 cliparts, so enjoy them. Right now I think it was a little bit stupid idea as I need for each between app. 3-4 hours to draw it. I didnt think that the sum on the pledgie will so fast growing and I have to draw so fast. So it will take me a while to draw the cliparts for the sum which is donated right now. Especcially I want not upload cliparts with low quality. But many thx to all donators (known and unknown) I am sure, I will catch up with drawing soon.

    P.S. if someone is out there interested helping to make the service OCAL provides better, there is a Hackfest planned for September because right now, the loading times of OCAL are horrible.

  • Spherical Cow needs a face

    August 1st, 2012 von buergermeister

    A german floss news page wrote yesterday that Fedora 18 has his shape now. What it still misses is a face and thats not so an easy task with an name like Spherical Cow. Some might read Mizmo’s post about the things that happend yesterday arround the design for Fedora 18. We had yesterday a little brainstorming what to do and it turned into an hackfest and things moved forward. There are some ideas for the design for “cosmic cow”, you can all see them in the post from Mizmo.

    But I like to talk a little bit more about mine. In Vienna I saw at the Fedora booth the game OSMOS running, I dont know whats the game about but it creates beautiful spheres and I saw them and thaught thats how spherical cows look like. Gergely took a screenshot of some of them and reminded me yesterday on that idea. So I tried yesterday to create similar spheres with Inkscape. My creation turned out a little bit more “electrical” looking, but thats not bad because electricity is power and Fedora has power.

    So thats the status now and right now, I am unhappy with. Especially with the background which contains simple formulas from quantum computing (which should be a cow) e.g. of a qubit. I am also unhappy with the colors. So maybe someone has a idea which brings me forward. You can find the source for playing with it on my fpo account.

    Inkscape-Workshop

    Juli 16th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Einige haben mich auf der letzten Ubucon angesprochen, ob es nicht möglich sei auch mal einen ausgiebigeren Inkscape-Workshop zu machen. Dieser soll weniger nach der Art, wir machen etwas zusammen, mit Inkscape sein sondern mehr  die Handhabung generell erklären und Tricks und Kniffe bringen. Von meiner Seite stellt das erst einmal grundsätzlich kein Problem dar. Jetzt, da sich bei mir die Planung für den Rest des Jahres abzeichnet, könnte man das in Angriff nehmen. Dazu brauche ich allerdings einige Antworten.

    Besteht daran immer noch Interesse?

    Für den Ort, im Moment denke ich an Chemnitz, da ich hier Zugriff auf einen Schulungsraum für 12 Personen habe, der keine Kosten verursacht. Was allerdings die Teilnehmerzahl begrenzt, ich würde allerdings ohnehin Obergrenzen setzen. Beginn wäre Freitag Abend, mit nur Vorbereitungen und Samstag/Sonntag dann den ganzen Tag. Kosten entstehen nur für die Unterlagen, die Anreise und Unterkunft, man findet aber hier sehr preisgünstige Unterkünfte. Wenn also immer noch Interesse besteht, einfach bei mir melden oder in die Kommentare schreiben.

    Inkscape – Export Tricks

    Juli 3rd, 2012 von buergermeister

    Ganz oft wird scheinbar nach “DEM” Tutorial für Icon-Design gesucht, ein solches kann es aber gar nicht geben. Es ist eine ganze Reihe an Dingen, die man wissen muss. Die Verwendung nicht nur der gleichen Farbpalette, sondern auch gleicher Farbverläfue sind nur eine Sache. Ganze Icon-Set in nur einer Datei zu bearbeiten hat den Vorteil, einen Farbverlauf auch nur einmal editieren zu müssen. Auch auf dem zu erwartendem Hintergrund zu arbeiten ist ein weitere Trick.  Im heutigen Screencast zeige ich einfach meine Vorgehensweise für Iconsets und wie ich sie auf die verschiedenen benötigten Größen skaliere und exportiere, keine große Sache, wenn man weiß wie.


    Einen kleinen Haken hat die gezeigte Methode allerdings, auf diese Weise des Export kann nur mit 90DPI Auflösung exportiert werden, für andere Auflösungen muss man doch die Kommandozeile bemühen, aber auch hier ist die Umbenennung der Gruppen hilfreich.

    Drawing for a new laptop

    Juli 2nd, 2012 von buergermeister

    Some of my friends decided that I would need a new laptop. So they started a campaign to collect the money for a new one. That is indeed true I would need a new one, since my sheeba broke I take one of the company, but thats not always possible and then I use my old one but old means old.
    But people who know me, know I feeling not very well accepting gifts. So I decided to do something for it. I will for each 10€ that will be collected make a clipart and put it to the OpenClipartLibrary what means it will be public domain. Means on the end 90 new cliparts available there.

    As there is already some money on the moneybox, I started yesterday uploading a clipart set. Hope you can enjoy them, you can do whatever you want with it.

    P.S. a few minutes ago I got a mail, someone asked me, if he can use the map clipart for an geo tagging app. Of course you can!

    Linux Color Management Hackfest

    Mai 22nd, 2012 von buergermeister

    One of the good things that happend on LGM, was that Richard Hughes and Kai-Uwe Behrmann found time to speak with each other and found a way how they can work together in the future. That brought a new spirit to OpenICC and made a lot of people happy. Since then there was a lot of work on metadata key and also on some discussions about color managed printing. But this is mostly theoretical work and both like to write also code. So time to move forward there also.

    There was since a long time the idea to an Hackfest on color management stuff. On LGM we had all three together also the time to speak about this topic, and we all had the feeling that would move color management on the free desktop forward. So now we made some plans and the hackfest will be in November. As you can see Kai-Uwe and also Hughsie blogged already about it.

    The hackfest will be from 16th-19th of November 2012 in Brno, RedHat offices. There is already a wiki page for the hackfest. Planned is to get some experts in color management together with authors of applications, also working color managemed printing, move some browsers forward on this topic and also work on color management in toolkits. Some people from QT showed already interest.

    So if you are interested, contact me or Kai-Uwe or simple join the #openicc channel on freenode.

    day +3 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Saturday the 5th of May was the last day of Libre Graphics Meeting and also of the Linuxwochen Vienna. It was the day of Beastie and Puffy invasion, because the european BSDday.eu was also in the venue. In the morning I had again a Inkscape workshop on the Linuxwochen, which was better visited as the one on the day before. So I had no time for the talks at the Libre Graphics Meeting. After a short lunch break a second workshop followed. It was a workshop about the whole workflow for preparing magazines/books and of course working with free software. Planned was to prepare a book with all the paper of LGM in that workshop, but I only got 3 of them. So on the end it was more a BoF-session about all the work which have to be done preparing a magazin or book. Thats already a lot, book sizes, book layout, font decission and all that.

    After the workshop my voice was gone at least until I had a drink. But I needed not really my voice anymore that day. I joined Pete Ippels talk Transitional Work Flow For Artists Making The Libre Graphics Leap and and It Builds Character a talk from Nathan Willies introducing new free software tools for font development. After that the LGM ended and there was a short discussion where the next one should be. So next LGM will be in Madrid and there are some voices doing it in Asia. And thats problematic, there are to much people who like to protect what they have, an LGM in Europe or Montreal. But we will see…

    The day ended for most of us in the same restaurant we went on tuesday evening, so that meant “Schnitzel” for the most of us. This time the crowed was bigger as in tuesday so we needed another table extra. But we stayed not to long as some of us, already started there travelling home directly from there or at the next morning.

    Nicu managed already to upload most of his pictures and Mizmo did also made a bigger upload. For Taticas pictures I think we have to wait for a few days, she is in “zombie mode” after her arrival at home yesterday evening.

    day +2 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Friday the 4th of May was the 3rd day of Libre Graphics Meeting and the 2nd of Linuxwochen Vienna. The day of the goat invasion or the day I had not really fun. Why, I missed all the talks I was really interested in. For example Johan Engelen with the development of Powerstroke in Inkscape. I missed them because I had at the same time an Inkscape workshop on Linuxwochen. The workshop wasnt so crowed as they normally are. Because it was friday in the morning, a lot of people have to work. But there was no other time slot left. So I couldnt enjoy all the interesting talks from the GIMP world.

    At 3pm was a bigger slot with an panel: Doing Design In The World Of FLOSS which Mizmo, Allan Day and me was planned for, Peter Sikking joined us also. The problem sitting on the end means, very often the points are taken. After that I skipped one talk and watched later Nicus talk about Free Culture meets Free Software: Wiki Loves Monuments and after that a video presentation from Bassam Kurdali about the Tube movie project. I had an conversation with Bassam a week before LGM started about that, because there was the idea to do a free movie session on the Linuxwochen after party on friday. But before we went to that, there was another q/talk planned like the day before. This time about open hardware, Pete Ippel talked about the MilkyMist One, Richard Hughes about the ColorHug and normally Mickey Lauer was planned but he didnt make it, so Zoltan joined the round and talked about the Nanonote.

    After the q/talk I played again the role of a tourist guide and we went to the MuseumsQuartier. That is one of the places I like most, there is a lot of art and its also a place for Geeks as there is the quartier 21 for digital art and life style. The Linuxwochen after party wasnt invaded from LGM people like Nicu wrote, it was actually planned this way. Normally the after party its just a bigger table with arround 20 people as the most speakers are on there way home after there talk. Thats a problem of a longer event, you will never get all together. I tried to show some free movies, but it was already to late for that. On the social event Elisa de Castro Guerra went to me and used one of the few chances to speak with me, it was actually funny, because she works also for Doudou Linux, where I did last year made a submission to the Logo Contest and we had time to talk a little bit about it. Later we went for a couple of hours to the Metalab, Viennas hackerspace, which isnt far from the MQ and then home.

    day 0 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

    The 2nd of May was the first day of the 7th edition of Libre Graphics Meeting, I by myself call it the “Color Freaks Day” because most of the topics at this day scheduled talks was about color management. But the day started for Tatica and me with a little shopping trip. As I said in the last blogpost, our appartment was at a really cool place and we had not only cafes outside, we had directly opposite an supermarket and 20 meters away the next one. So we managed to get things like coffee, fruit juices, coffee cream and milk. And there was even a bakery so there was fresh Croissants at the breakfast. After a cup of coffee we all went to the venue, which was a 20 minutes walk.

    As I mentioned before, the first day of Libre Graphics Meeting started with a lot of talks arround color management topics. The first talk was Richard Hughes: ColorHug – The Open Hardware Colorimeter, followed by Kai-Uwe Behrmann: Evolving Concepts for Colour Management, Color Management in SVG2 from Chris Lilley from W3C, and then again Kai-Uwe Behrmann with Colour Management a la Greek and Richard Hughes: colord – Linux Color Management Framework, One Year On. Last in this round was myself: Taxi DB – Call A Cab To Bring The Colors. What we learned at this day, is that there is not really a good documentation for users about starting with color management, so many beginners have problems. Hopefully Kai-Uwe Behrmanns and mine talk at LinuxTag will helpful for that. When I understood Chris Lilley right then naming of colors in SVG2 will be possible so then transferring spot color names will be possible. For me it was the chance to introduce Hughsie to TaxiDB. He showed interest in using it but not in the way we thaught, but we managed to find a way over the week, using it for his needs and also for what I thaught TaxiDB should be, so a win-win. On the end Richard and Kai-Uwe managed to talk with each other and there is a new begin on OpenICC. The day ended for us with an picnic, Mizmo, Emichan, Tatica and me cooked and we went to the Danube channel, which was also not far away from our appartment. The crowed became again bigger as Allan Day, Garret LeSage, Jakub Steiner, Jiri Eischmann and some others joined us. Was really a nice get together.

  • LinuxTag 2012

    April 27th, 2012 von buergermeister

    In knapp einem Monat ist es wieder soweit, Europas größter Event rund um Linux und Open Source geht über die Bühne. Das freie Vortragsprogramm ist ja mittlerweile veröffentlicht und die Austeller stehen auch schon eine Weile fest. Ich selbst werde am Samstag um 10.30 Uhr im Saal Berlin I einen Vortrag haben, das Thema ist “Bring Color To The Game“. Den Votrag halte ich zusammen mit kai-Uwe Behrmann vom Oyranos Projekt. Der Vortrag versucht zu erklären was Color Management eigentlich ist, da sieht es bei vielen schon trüb aus und wie der derzeitige Stand innerhalb der Open Source Welt ist. Da gibt es ja so einiges an Software von ArgyllCMS, über LittleCMS, dispcalGUI, colord, Oyranos, KolorManager, Gnome-Color-Manager usw. Allein diese Woche hatte ich 3 Personen, die Gnome-Color-Manager für ein Color Management System hielten, wo es doch nur ein grafisches Frontend zur Konfiguration eines solchen ist. Es sind eine Menge Mythen und Unklarheiten zu diesem Thema unterwegs und wir hoffen, mit unserem Vortrag diese bereinigen zu können und dem Anwender zu zeigen wie er zu einem farbverwalteten Desktop kommt.
