Today we will focus on powerful Linux image editor that is taking the Ubuntu community by storm. I introduce you to Fotoxx, again, they could have chosen a better name for their software but it is worth a download none the less. Lets dive in to what makes this image editing app a true alternative to Photoshop apps and the likes.
Why You Should Try Fotoxx On Linux
Fotoxx is a free open source Linux program for photo and image editing and collection management. The goal is to meet the needs of serious photographers while remaining fast and easy to use.
Browse a large image collection using a thumbnail browser, click on an image to view or edit. A rich set of edit and retouch functions is available (see examples below). Import RAW files and edit with deep color. Save revised images as JPEG, BMP, PNG (8/16 bits), or TIFF (8/16). Select an object or area within an image (freehand outline, follow edges, select matching tones, … ), apply edit functions, copy and paste, resize, blend, warp, etc. without using layers. Edit functions have fast feedback using the full image. Add metadata (tags, geotags, dates, ratings, captions …) to images. Search images using any metadata and/or folder and file names or partial names. Click on a marked map location to see all photos from that location. Batch functions are available for renaming, adding metadata, moving, resizing. Fotoxx uses your image files wherever they are and maintains a separate index for fast searching. Fotoxx is standards compliant and can be used with other photo edit programs
