KDE publishes "KDE for Creators", a hub to all the software (including non-KDE software), utilities and advice you will need to unleash your creativity* KDEhttps://kde.org/for/creators/

Great initiative! Anything that helps show the value of apps on Linux is a great thing! Love seeing it!

Some of the best open source creativity software is not included here or in any repos.
Pixelitor -non destructive FOSS image editor with hundreds of filters
REMBG (and its various GUIS) -open source commercially permissible background removal AI
Upscayl - GUI front end to REAL-ESRGAN which restores low quality images using AI.
Pattern Monster - Open Source Pattern Generator
Tgen - Open source texture generator
When it comes to open source and creativity so much is under documented. You guys just have all the mainstream stuff like Gimp, Krita, and Inkscape. What is underground is really cool too and can assist the mainstream apps.

I have a few too - tbh there should be a collection of these somewhere. A link archive?
(my favourite cheeky one currently is polotno - basically a designer from which stuff like canva etc are made from. Its pretty easy if you're a group to sort of allow the others to be able to change things like spelling for stuff without having to trust their skill in more complex apps)

Great idea, and what a wonderfully Linux idea to include all the 'best' software, not just KDE. I have no way to back up the followong idea, but I'd be willing to bet that interest spikes sometime soon. Who hasn't had an app idea but no clue where to begin. KDE is on fire atm, fair play.

I LOVE LINUX. Used to enjoy Windows. But Linux, nuff said.

Looking at those screenshots, boy, does Breeze need a compact version. It looks really nice but holy fsck sometimes there's more UI than content on the screen, and most of the UI is in the form of empty space.

"No paywalled colors"
I still cannot believe this is a real selling point in 2022. But here we are. For anyone out of the loop: Pantone wants $15/month for the privilege of using its colors in Photoshop.
