fotoxx-15.11 is now available for download from our test repo. Unfortunately, the sliders are still broken when built on a wheezy base so there won't be any new fotoxx for MX-14/MEPIS-12 until that's fixed.
Fotoxx 15.11 is released with the following changes:

Folders in gallery pages show counts for both contained sub-folder and images.
Pattern: pattern can imprint target image without changing image colors.
Adjust HSL: the amount of color change is proportional to the match with a selected target color, and this match range is adjustable.
Batch Convert: more flexibility in the formatting of output file names.
New: make a spherical image projection with variable radius of curvature.
Trim/Rotate: if an image is levelled using mouse drag, the trim rectangle is automatically maximized, removing the need to do this manually.
If an edit dialog is started and left/right image margins are present, the image is pushed to the right side so the dialog can be positioned over the expanded left margin and menu panel, minimizing the image area covered. This position is saved and restored the next time the dialog is used.
Saving to file type .bmp was removed, since all metadata is lost.
A new transition type was added to Slide Show: collapsing sphere.
Six other minor improvements and minor bug fixes were made.

The latest fotoxx-16.03 is available for download from the test repo.
* New upstream version
+ New: Blur Background: select one or more areas (foreground) that remain sharp
while the remaining areas (background) are blurred, optionally in proportion
to distance from foreground. Also useful for the classic Tilt-Shift effect.
+ New: Add Transparency: based on brightness, a chosen color, or the inverse.
+ Edit Metadata: Editing a series of images that need some of the same metadata
was made faster and easier with a button to recall previous data.
+ The image size limit for most edit functions was doubled to 250 megapixels
(not realistic for computers having less than 16 GB main memory).
+ Select Area: area edge distance calculation was made 2-3x faster.
+ Select Area: copy/paste retains both transparency and edge distance data.
+ Calibrate Printer Colors: the chart and the procedure were revised, and this
means you have to perform the calibration again (my apologies for this).
+ Bugfix: Mashup: warping overlay images no longer leaves black margins where
an image was pulled inward from the edge.

Been testing this version (16.030 of fotoxx and it seems to work fine. It actually shows up as "Photo Editor" under Graphics. When clicking on world-maps tool / icon, it shows a small box that points to the location to download / get tar balls for using the mapping & world maps part of the program. (fotoxx-maps package not installed).

Note: There is a small message box that appears on the screen when the program starts. It took me awhile to catch what it said, before it went off the screen. This is what it what mine says ..

Code: Select all

 "top image directories:
"home/kernspy/Pictures
home/kernspy/desktop/my_pics
thumbnails directory:
home/kernspy/.fotoxx/thunmnails
imagefiles found: 18
index updates needed: 0
index updates: 0  thumbnails: 0  deleted: 0
COMPLETED


Startup the program and drop a photo on the window and you are ready to go. The tool buttons are vertically aligned on the left. Just clicking on one will show a menu with a list of options. I've edited, resized, renamed and saved photos without issue. I've tried out many of the special effects and the program is fun and easy to use. Now I've just got to get away from it for awhile. :smile:

Installs OK, but still pulls in dcraw. That can be dropped from the Depends, or replaced with libraw10, since it doesn't seem to add that automatically.

It looks like you could port over the fotoxx-maps package from here and list it as a Suggests: for fotoxx.
