        Fotoxx - photo/image editor and collection manager


        Fotoxx [ options ] [ file | folder ]


        Organize and manage a large image collection. Edit and optimize
        photos and other images, search images, and perform batch operations.
        Fotoxx is a GTK application which operates in its own window.
        The included user manual explains its operation in great detail.
        The following is a summary of capabilities.


         · Organize and manage a large image collection: find what you are looking for,
           create albums (subcollections), process RAW images, repair and enhance photos,
           combine images (HDR, panorama, mashup, montage), edit and report metadata ...
         · Thumbnail browser/navigator with variable size thumbnails and list view.
         · Camera RAW file conversion, single or batch, with 16 bit color depth.
         · Internal processing in 24 bits per color (float), output in 8 or 16 bits.
         · A comprehensive set of image edit functions is available: brightness, color,
           contrast, trim/crop, rotate, upright, resize, sharpen, denoise, paint, text,
           lines, red eye, fix distortions, HDR, panorama, stack, montage, mashup ...
         · Advanced edit functions to bring out details and add flair to an image.
         · A large set of creative special effects and arty transforms is available
           (sketch, cartoon, emboss, dither, painting, mosaic, sphere, tiny planet ...)
         · Select image objects or areas and edit them separately from the background
           (draw outline, follow edges, spread out from mouse to matching colors ...)
         · Special selection tool for complex edges (e.g. hair, foliage)
         · Copy areas within and across images by mouse painting and blending.
         · Rapid visual feedback using the full image or a selected zoom-in area.
         · Most edit functions can be 'painted' locally and gradually using the mouse.
         · View a 360 degree panorama image (Google Street View format).
         · Metadata edit and report (tags, dates, captions, geotags ... any metadata).
         · Edited files are saved with a version number, originals are kept by default.
         · Transparent image areas can be retained. Variable transparency can be added.
         · Custom scripts: record a series of image edits, use as a new edit function.
         · Batch tools are available to rename, resize, convert, process RAW files,
           export, add, revise and report metadata, and execute custom edit scripts.
         · Search images using any metadata and folder/file names or partial names
           (dates/times, locations, ratings, captions/comments, exposure data ...).
         · Show a table of image locations and date groups, click for gallery of images.
         · Show an image calendar, click on year or month for a gallery of images.
         · Find images by clicking markers on a scalable world map (internet map).
         · Also use locally stored maps (world, continents, nations, cities ... custom).
         · Create albums with selected images. Arrange sequence by drag and drop.
         · Slide show: use many animated image transitions and slow pan/zoom in or out.
         · Mashup: arrange images and text in an arbitrary layout using the mouse.
         · Print an image at any scale. A printer color calibration tool is available.
         · Show video files (first frame) like regular images, optionally play videos.
         · Custom favorites menu - user can select and arrange icon and text menus
         · Custom keyboard shortcuts can be assigned to all functions
         · Comprehensive user guide and context help popups via F1 key.
