This presentation evolved from author's experiences in using Linux to manage collections of images and to edit images using FOSS and other open source tools. A brief overview of tools for "managing" photos will be followed by the main topic: editing images with The GIMP. Album creation and upload tools will also be touched on. There will be a "live" demonstration of tools found most useful from The GIMP toolbox, including basics such as cropping, color balance, adding text, creating images with transparent backgrounds.
This site has been created on an entirely open source stack, from the underlying highly customized Debian Linux operating system, to the Apache web server, to the Drupal CMS everything here was built on open technologies.
Even the site theme(look and feel) is a project which was originally built as a closed source product by Top Notch Themes, which was bought by Dries Buytaert and licensed out to everyone under the GPLv2. The original theme was called "Aquia Slate" but it has been forked into a theme meant to pseudo-emulate the command line terminal called, "Terminal Obsession" which is also open source and can be found at Google Code.
