Great stuff! Thanks!!


18. anonymous Fri, 26 Jun 2009 05:44

Not bad. Pluses: all fields was described and understand. Minuses: Noise. And it look like need be developed more. Why picture can be scaled proportionally by moving one of the angle.


17. anonymous Wed, 17 Jun 2009 09:32

Excellent video... I used InDesign before and am new to Scribus, but I find that is is a powerful Open Source alternative too!


16. anonymous Tue, 16 Jun 2009 16:56

Great :-))


15. anonymous Thu, 07 May 2009 04:55

Scribus is great and your tutorials are brilliant !! many thanks for sharing such an important and usefull tool..

I wonder if is any way to rotate an image inside a polygon ?? I can certainly rotate a polygon with an image inside but not the image inside the polygon independently

Many thanks and cheers and Long Life Open Source Soft !!


14. anonymous Wed, 06 May 2009 07:27

10. anonymous Sun, 22 Mar 2009 05:18

Cool! I like this. Thanks!


9. anonymous Sun, 01 Mar 2009 17:50

When I downloaded Scribus, I really dispaired as I had never used a publishing program. Your videos have made the program so much more understandable. Thank you so much!


8. anonymous Wed, 21 Jan 2009 16:49

I fell asleep during the video. How about articulating when doing your videos? :-)

Anyway, thanks for the tutorial!


7. anonymous Sun, 21 Dec 2008 10:03

This is not only the best website I've found for Scribus tutorials, but for great video tutorials in general. The quality is great, the pace easy, and I can't wait to learn more. Thanks so much.


6. anonymous Sun, 16 Nov 2008 07:43

Clearly spoken, slow pace, from beginning on, ordered by topic: Great!

Thanks for enabling me to make a photobook.

Great video thank you - Frankie Kam, Malaysia


4. anonymous Sun, 24 Aug 2008 09:44

Nice presentation, only the content is a little-bit too low-level.

Anyway, keep-up the work! This is what keeps OpenSource even more rolling!


3. anonymous Mon, 21 Jul 2008 05:59

clear, step by step instructions much appreciated


2. anonymous Sun, 08 Jun 2008 19:11

Thanks, great video tutorials

However, goes a little slow. I thinking anybody

fairly familiar with computers and used to using open source/freeware stuff could figure out most of the intro stuff.

How about advanced videos that get right into the cool stuff?


well done, thanks from cloudy berlin


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
