First post of the year, so I can start wishing you all an awesome and happy new year!
As part of my work with Activ Design, I need to prepare some new training material to teach digital painting with Krita. Part of this material will be some kind of software manual. As we don’t have an up to date manual and the booksprint project we started to discuss is on stand-by for now, I started to write a modular manual to guide new Krita users. I call it modular because I want to split each aspect of the software to its own chapter, in separate pdf files (for convenience I’ll also make a version with all chapters in one file at the end). I’m writing both english and french versions: english as it’s the best base for everyone to read and translate, and french because our current students at Activ Design are french 😉
To follow the good old rule “release early, release often”, the first files are already available. This is just the beginning, I’ll add the next chapters in the coming days. Next topics will be the layer stack, the brush editor, and one chapter for each group of tools.
If you want to add some translations, the sources are in a git repository: https://gitorious.org/krita-guide
A little side note on another topic: if you’ve followed our fundraising campaign for GCompris, you may have noticed we extended the deadline to February 1st. We really need more budget to be able to complete new illustrations for all the different activities, which is needed to reach unified graphics. Please support this project if you can!
