Following are excerpts, notes, and links for my presentation at WordCamp Portland 2008 titled ‘Design & Debug Themes Using Free Tools.’
Meet the Gimp by Rolf Steinort features video tutorials on the GIMP, an alternative to software like PhotoShop and Fireworks.
screencasters.heathenx.org by HeathenX and Richard Querin features video tutorials on Inkscape, a vector graphics program similar to Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, or Freehand.
Both programs are free software and run on Linux, Mac, Windows and BSD.

I don’t spend a lot of time microblogging and can’t imagine why people would care what I have to say, but you can find me at: http://identi.ca/sewmyheadon.
Looks like WordCamp Portland 2008 is tentatively scheduled for September 27th and Aaron Hockley started a Google Group to discuss it.
Matt Mullenweg announced new WordCamp dates, including WordCamp San Francisco 2008, which is set for Saturday August 16th at the Mission Bay Conference Center.
There’s a new listing of upcoming WordCamps at WordCamp Central.
One that’s not listed is WordCamp Portland, which is taking place this Sunday, May 4th during BarCamp Portland.
