Fotoxx navigates an image collection using a thumbnail browser to choose images to view or edit. Edit functions include brightness, contrast, color, gamma, white balance, tone mapping, red eyes, sharpen, blur, noise suppression, smart erase, trim (crop), resize, rotate, add text, bend/warp, many art effects, HDR, HDF, stack, and panorama. Edit functions use movable curves and sliders. Feedback is live using the whole image.
RAW files can be edited and saved with deep color. Areas or objects can be selected using freehand draw, follow edge, and tone matching. Selections can be edited in place with adjustable blending. They can also be cut and pasted into other images. Any metadata can be edited, reported, and searched (filenames, tags, dates, geotags, comments, captions, ratings, etc.). Collections (arbitrary subsets) can be defined and viewed. Batch functions are available for rename, resize/export, RAW conversion, and more.
Release Notes: A new capability “Mashup” was added: arrange multiple images and text on a background. Rearrange by dragging the mouse; resize, rotate, and add font effects. The menus and toolbars have improved visual feedback, and many popup descriptions were added. Metadata edit functions were combined for easier workflow. Area paste has a brightness adjustment to better match the background. File save options (overwrite, new version, and new file) were revised for clarity and error avoidance. One significant bug and two minor ones were fixed.
