Fotoxx, the free and open source digital photo editing and collection management software has reached v13.11 with performance improvements and bugfixes.
See what’s new in Fotoxx 13.11:
- File Sync: image navigation and viewing is now allowed (but not editing).
- Batch Convert can upright photos made with camera turned 90 degrees.
- Slide Show: improved capability for automatic pause at designated images.
- Warp Linear: algorithm was revised to better approximate linearity.
- New: Highlight darkest/brightest image areas with adjustable thresholds.
- Select Area: expand or contract a finished area in 1-pixel steps (can reduce edge effects when editing areas selected by color matching).
- Mashup: interface was improved to simplify and speed-up image positioning.
- Mashup: mouse can “paint” variable transparency on images in the layout.
- User Settings: new option to include hidden files in the gallery pages.
- Trim/Rotate: grid lines match the trim rectangle (rule of thirds always works).
- Zoom state is retained for Open Previous File, but reset otherwise.
(use this function for image A:B comparison, retaining zoom% and position)
- Bugfix: Trim/Rotate removed vacated margins that were left intentionally.
- Bugfix: Trim/Rotate failed to reinstate its prior grid settings.
- Bugfix: Auto-Trim caused an endless loop under certain circumstances.
