With Krita's recent 1.6 release enhancing its usability for professional artwork, the Krita team is looking into creating a
gallery where Krita users can contribute their art made with it. Any decent gallery needs to be seeded with some initial artwork. So we are asking any
Krita user who might want to show his painting skills, to consider making us a pretty painting. With some luck, it'll get selected to be put on the site.
Read more on how to participate. Update: Linux.com has a review of Krita with comments from its developers.
To participate, you first need to make a painting or a picture. When you are satisfied with it, save it in Krita's native file format. This is called 'Krita
Document' in the Save Dialogue, and has the '.kra' extension. If you used lots of regular layers, group layers, adjustment layers and other fancy things, we would
be pleased to see them in the saved file. Then, you need to pick a license to put your image under. We'd very much like this to be an open license, that is: a license
that permits other people to not only look at the file, but also to play around with it (while still giving you credit, of course). An example of a license that would
probably be good, might be the GNU General Public License, but some of the
Creative Commons licenses will also be good if they are open enough. Please make sure that if you use
external material, like photographs made by other people, that you have the proper authority to use them this way.
Then, you can mail the document, together with the license information, to the gallery administrators: <[email protected]>. You can
also add some brief information about your work, like a description, a title, and your name. We will let you know if we select the image to appear on the gallery.
As a small reminder, if you have any problems or suggestions to enhance Krita, be sure to let us know about them.
