Fotoxx is a free open source Linux program for editing image files
from a digital camera. The goal of fotoxx is to meet most image
editing needs while remaining easy to use.
Navigate images with a pageable thumbnail window, edit an entire
image or selected areas, change brightness and contrast, flatten
brightness distribution, change color intensity, reduce the number
of colors (posterize), make panoramas, make HDR images, crop, rotate
(any angle), rescale, fix red-eye, fix perspective (slanted
buildings), warp, sharpen, blur, remove noise (speckles), add tags
to images and search by tags, make a collage of images and text,

Update to 16.01
2016 Jan 01 v.16.01
+ Edit Any Metadata and Batch Add/Change Metadata: faster/easier UI: mouse
point and click to select metadata items from a list of most likely items.
+ Panorama: a manual alignment option was added for images with no clear
features in the overlap area that can be used for auto-alignment.
+ Batch Convert: add an overlay image to output images (e.g. a credit line).
+ Slide Show: minor changes to improve user interface (see User Guide).
+ Image right-shift is now a user option with no more back-and-forth motion.
+ Search Images: new option for text data matching: case-sensitive or not.
+ New user option: default gallery sort: file name, file mod date, photo date.
+ A new function for color saturation was added (separate from Retouch Combo).
+ Bugfix: Search Images for metadata was including some non-matching images.
+ Bugifx: possible crash in Select Area if 'extend to corner' is active.
2015 Dec 20 v.15.12.1
+ Bugfix: Retouch Combo: GUI lockup in Linux Mint 17.3. Ubuntu not affected.
2015 Dec 01 v.15.12
+ Adjust HSL menu: better control of the color range to select and adjust.
+ Fix Perspective: new option to automatically trim using the corner markers.
+ Trim/Rotate: new option: level a slanted image via EXIF RollAngle if present.
+ Keyboard Shortcuts: list all existing shortcuts in a popup window.
A button is available to start a dialog to add or revise shortcuts.
+ Metadata short report: user can specify extra items to include in the report.
+ New: Metadata batch report - list selected metadata for selected image files.
+ File Save - New File Version: this function can now have a keyboard shortcut.
+ Maps: red-dot locations are consolidated only for separations < 100 meters.
Previously location names were used, but this is sometimes too broad.
+ Maps: custom user maps are now separated from standard maps.
This prevents losing them if the fotoxx-maps package is re-installed.
+ TIFF files are now saved without compression. The file size may be slightly
greater or less, but the processing time is reduced 90%.
+ Slide Show: new transition: image turns like a book page to reveal next image.
+ Bugfix: the Upright function would not step to the next image.
+ Bugfix: PT Panorama was broken due to an interface change in Panorama Tools.
+ Bugfix: possible crash when leveling an image by dragging the image edge.
+ Bugfix: possible crash if a select area is abandoned with nothing selected.
2015 Nov 08 v.15.11.1
+ Bugfix: Rename failed to automatically open the next following file.
+ Translation updates: Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Italian.
2015 Nov 01 v.15.11
+ Folders in gallery pages show contained sub-folder and image file counts.
+ Pattern: pattern can imprint target image without changing image colors.
+ Adjust HSL: the amount of color change is proportional to the match with
a selected target color, and this match range is adjustable.
+ Batch Convert: more flexibility in the formatting of output file names.
+ New: Spherical image projection with variable radius of curvature.
+ Trim/Rotate: if an image is leveled using mouse drag, the trim rectangle
is automatically maximized, removing the need to do this manually.
+ If an edit dialog is started and left/right image margins are present,
the image is pushed to the right side so the dialog can be positioned
over the expanded left margin and menu panel, to cover less image area.
This position is saved and restored the next time the dialog is used.
+ Saving to file type .bmp was removed, since all metadata is lost.
+ A new transition type was added to Slide Show: collapsing sphere.
+ Six other minor improvements and bug fixes.
2015 Oct 09 v.15.10
+ New: Batch Scripts: Perform a series of image edits while recording all
menu and dialog inputs into a script file. Execute the script file to
apply the same edits to multiple images selected from gallery pages.
+ Calibrate Printer: improved for slightly more accurate colors.
+ Edit curves: The capture distance for mouse selection of nodes to drag
is adjustable (increase default value to make touch pads easier to use).
+ Batch Add/Change Metadata: a pick-list for commonly used tags was added.
+ Geographic maps: mouse distance to trigger a popup location name was
made independent of map scale (10 pixels instead of 10 km).
+ Bugfix: gallery file selection: clicking on a file name in the list of
selected files was sometimes inaccurate and selected the wrong file.
+ Bugfix: setting geotags by clicking on map locations did not allow an
initial location to be revised by clicking somewhere else.
2015 Sep 03 v.15.09.2
+ Bugfix: infinite loop when saving RAW file to JPG/TIF/PNG.
+ Bugfix: Open of TIF file with 8 bits/color showed 0 or 16 in top panel.

+ Panorama: about 20% faster (3 x 7 megapixels, 2 GHz CPU --> 18 secs).
+ Paint Transparency: response lag with large images was eliminated.
+ Area Copy and Paste was reinstated (easier than file save and open).
+ Use of alpha channel for vacated margins extended to all bend functions.
+ New: Calibrate Printer: tool to improve image print color accuracy.
+ Bugfix: crash in Flatten Book Page while marking page edges.
+ Bugfix: Slide Show fails if translated transition names contain blanks.
+ Bugfux: Leverage Edit: use of contrast as edit lever was broken.
+ Seven other minor improvements and fixes.
2015 Aug 01 v.15.08
+ The brightness distribution for an image can be reshaped by using slider
controls and watching the image and/or graph. The distribution can be
clipped at either end, or stretched or flattened in different zones.
+ Editing and searching image tags have an additional tool to deal with a
huge list of defined tags. The tag pick-list can be all tags, or only
those for a category chosen from a category pick-list.

areas selected by mouse painting or areas previously finished.
2015 Jul 01 v.15.07
+ Menus were reorganized. User Guide was revised to match.
+ User Guide was audited and many minor errors were corrected.
+ Index Image Files: user interface and messages were rationalized.
+ Undo/Redo button: middle mouse button produces a popup list of edits
done to the current image. Go back to any done or undone edit step.
+ Edit Metadata and Search Images: working with thousands of unorganized
image tags was made much more practical: type-in tags or use pick-list.
+ New batch tool: convert tags for all image files using a from-to list.
+ New batch tool: select images (click thumbnails) to trash or delete.
+ New batch tool: find and upright all image files rotated 90 degrees.
+ Gallery navigation panel: parent directories are buttons instead of text.

+ 4 minor bug fixes and 10 user interface improvements.
2015 Jun 01 v.15.06
+ New: HSL Color: change the color of selected image areas using an HSL

+ KB shortcuts includes a button to report all the standard shortcuts.
+ Multiple UI and help text improvements.
+ Three minor bug fixes.
2015 May 01 v.15.05
+ New: Smart Denoise: measure noise and use the result to reduce noise
with minimal loss of subtle detail. Also measure camera sensor noise.
+ The function Newest Images was revised to show a gallery of the newest
1000 files, based on either EXIF photo date or file modification date.
+ Zonal Flatten: algorithm improvement and stronger deband controls.
+ New: Cycle Background: cycle desktop background image via Fotoxx album.
+ Bugfix: possible crash in some edit functions if [done] button pressed
very quickly after adjusting a dialog control or edit curve.
+ Bugfix: Edit Metadata: tags with special characters were sometimes
getting split into two tags.
