How to install Fotoxx on Ubuntu 20.04 – A image editor for Linux

Fotoxx is a free and open source Linux application for image editing and collection management. It may not have a modern user interface, but it is fast in handling a large collection of photos.

You can import a huge collection of photos, including RAW images and perform all processing in deep color. Edited images can be saved as JPEG, TIFF, or PNG. Even you can edit image metadata like tags, dates, geotags, ratings, captions etc. You can search images based on these matadata.

Gallery thumbnails can vary from small to huge. The image can be zoomed, panned and scrolled using the mouse. You can select images to create albums and slideshows and all this happens without duplicating the images. Click on a thumbnail for a full window view of the image. Popup windows can be used to view multiple images at any scale.

Several tools are available to change size and shape such as resize, crop, fix perspective, rotate, curve/warp the whole image or selected areas within the image. Photos can be combined to create 360-degree panoramas. There is a special tool to ‘flatten’ photos of curved surfaces.
