How To Install Fotoxx 16.02 On OpenSUSE Via Repository

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 16.02, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • New Effects > Cartoon: convert a photo into a cartoon-like drawing.
  • Add Text and Add Lines now work better with images having transparent areas.
  • Paint/Clone: optionally paint over transparent areas, instantly or gradually.
  • Brasero was replaced by growisofs for writing image files to DVD/BlueRay disc.
    (growisofs underlies Brasero, K3b, and most other disc burning utilities).
  • Edit Any Metadata: UI improvement to better handle long text strings.
  • Batch Change Metadata: UI improvement to better handle long text strings.
  • New batch function: select image files by clicking thumbnails, output a file
    with a list of the selected files. Useful to feed shell scripts or other apps.
  • Function key changes: F10 for full screen with menu and panel, F11 without.
  • Batch Convert: overlay images (e.g. credit lines) can be sized for a constant
    screen display size, regardless of image size or aspect ratio.
  • When viewing images sequentially using the [prev/next] button or keyboard
    arrow keys, adjacent directories can be spanned without user navigation.
  • An album can be opened from the command line: $ fotoxx -album <album-name>
  • Bugfix: Retouch Combo: reset button did not reset everything.
  • Bugfix: Panorama: “file color” button caused image misalignment or crash.
