Fotoxx 13.03.1

Navigate a large image collection with a thumbnail browser, click on images to view or edit. Import RAW files and edit with deep color. Save revised images as JPEG, BMP, PNG (8/16 bits), or TIFF (8/16). Select an object or area within an image (outline, follow edges, spread into matching tones), apply retouch functions, copy and paste, resize, blend, warp, etc. without using layers. Edit functions have fast feedback using the full image. A comprehensive set of retouch and transform functions is available. See the example images below to get an overview. Add metadata (tags, geotags, dates, ratings, captions ...) to images and search images using metadata plus folder/file names or partial names. Fotoxx uses your image files wherever they are and maintains an index for fast searching. Metadata can be shared with other photo apps if they are standards compliant (no lock-in). Fotoxx is easy to use but unconventional, so please read the user manual (at least a few pages) before jumping in. Overall Operation

  • Retouch functions can be amplified/attenuated by underlying brightness/color.

  • "Paint" retouch functions locally and gradually using the mouse.

Transform Functions

  • Trim (crop): drag a mask or directly set desired size and aspect ratio.

  • Resize: use 1/2, 2/3 etc. or set desired size. Lock or change aspect ratio.

  • Rotate in 90 degree steps or use any angle. Level by dragging the edge.

  • Flip (mirror) horizontal or vertical.

  • HDF: combine close/far focus images to get a greater focus depth.

  • Suppress noise by combining and averaging multiple high-noise photos.

  • Remove transient people or cars: combine photos from different moments.

  • Panorama: combine 2-4 overlapped images horizontally or vertically. 

  • Hand-held photos work OK (some care is needed but not a tripod).

Arty Transforms

  • Posterize an image (reduce color depth).

  • Convert photo to drawing (charcoal, blackboard, colored lines).

  • Add embossing effect (surface depth, 3D texture).

  • Make tiles: any size with or without borders. Pixelate to obscure a face. 

  • Make a Roy Lichtenstein effect: convert image into a matrix of dots.

  • Simulate a painting: aggregate adjacent matching tones into larger patches.

    gallery of images from that location. Click gallery thumbnail to view or edit.

  • Manage tags: create, delete, group into categories.

  • View and edit any metadata (EXIF, IPTC, etc.).
