Linux News Today: Fotoxx 16.08 Free Image Editor Improves Sepia Coloring, Adds New Functions
Fotoxx developer Michael Cornelison announced a new monthly release of the open-source and free image editor software for GNU/Linux operating systems, version 16.08.
Fotoxx 16.08 is the August 2016 maintenance update of the popular software application, bringing numerous new features and improving existing ones. According to the release notes, there’s now support for removing multiple images just by clicking on their thumbnails in Albums, and users will be able to drag image thumbnails from a gallery or file manager directly into an album, and position them.
Moreover, Fotoxx 16.08 improves the Sepia coloring, implements a new slider to help users easily adjust the Color Mode effect from zero to 100%, introduces a new option to allow you to set the background color of a gallery, displays the color tones that are currently being selected or deselected, and enhances the Select Area tool with smoother edge blending appearance.
Slide Show and Select Hairy improvements
The Slide Show component of Fotoxx has been improved as well in the Fotoxx 16.08 stable release, and it looks like the last image in a slideshow will now remain displayed until the user presses the Esc key, and the large Transition preferences dialog won’t be a problem on small monitors. Additionally, the Select Hairy feature gets improved select and deselect thresholds for finer selectivity.
Lastly, Fotoxx 16.08 comes with the ability to use two parallel sessions to drag and drop thumbnails across galleries, support for generating a table of image counts by month and year, and fixes various bugs that have been reported by users since the previous maintenance release of the software (see the release notes below for more details).
