It’s Official – Issue 4 launches to the world on September 4th 2013, and this is shaping up to be our best issue ever! We had so much content for Issue #4 that we had to cap it at 100 pages of awesome. This issue will feature a mix of photography and digital arts.
We listened to our readers — you asked for more tutorials and we delivered. This issue is packed with several meaningful and relevant tutorials for both photographers and digital artists of all skill levels. Oh yeah, did I mention that GIMP Magazine is FREE? We can’t wait to share this with you!
GIMP Magazine on Issuu.com (where we host the online magazine) has measured over 500,000 views. This is incredible. Issue 3 had over 100,000 impressions in it’s first week of release, considerably more than the first two issues. These numbers are crushing our original estimates, and they do not include other big sites that have posted our PDF on their website for wide-scale download. GIMP Magazine is appearing in hundreds of Magazine download sites and we think this is amazing. Thanks everyone for making GIMP Magazine a huge success!
We are quickly approaching 10,000 followers. This is an incredible number that is way beyond our expectations when starting this project less than a year ago. This is great news for GIMP Magazine, GIMP software and the open source community! A sincere thanks to everyone who is following us and we look forward to providing you with some amazing magazines to come.
Issue 4 will launch to the world in all the regular formats (Issuu, PDF direct download) as well as high quality print format and tablet format (e.g. iPad). Help support GIMP Magazine and have one delivered to your door, or tablet! Check out http://gimpmagazine.magcloud.com for back issues.
The GIMP Magazine Team would like to sincerely thank everyone who contributed to our magazine. Visit our website if you would like to contribute. We can now accept donations of any amount (see upper right of our website) — we send cool stuff to those who do! Advanced previews, special features and other special goodies!
I want to apologize for the delay of Issue #4, but given the outstanding quality of this content, I didn’t want to rush it and possibly compromise the final product. GIMP Magazine is back and stronger than ever! We are actively working on Issue #5, and planning out Issue #6. This is going to be great!
And finally I want to give a special thanks to everyone on the GIMP Magazine Team particularly Debi Dalio and Sandra Livingston for writing and editing this work. Keep an eye out for some in-depth previews coming soon! Kicking us off is a preview of Reflections Photography by Ian Muttoo.
