How To Install Fotoxx 15.01 On Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian Jessie And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Fotoxx is an open source photo editing program, working on Linux. It has support for the most important image formats, including JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF and RAW. Fotoxx is mostly used for cropping, resizing or retouching photos, without using layers, like Photoshop.

The latest version available is Fotoxx 15.01, which has been released a while ago, coming the below changes:

  • Panorama: better image projection math for more precise stitching.
  • Several slider controls were given a log scale for easier and more precise
  • control of small changes near the neutral value.
  • Reduce Noise: new option: selectively apply to darker image areas.
  • Adding and editing plugins was made easier.
  • The Plugins menu was moved into the Edit menu.
  • Gallery view has a small layout change for improved appearance.
  • Gallery popup windows: F11 toggles full screen view, Escape terminates.
  • Magnify function: user interface was made more flexible.
  • Slide Show: zoom-in limit raised to 3x. Image retains native sharpness.
  • Map View: red dots are sized for good visibility at any map scale.
  • Bugfix: Printing an edited but unsaved image file printed the original file.
