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: The Window layout was revised to improve space utilization. A custom convolution kernel can be edited and applied to an image. If a RAW file has no embedded thumbnail, one is created. Panorama residual alignment errors (e.g. parallax offsets) can be fixed by dragging and warping images with the mouse. Trim/Rotate and Fix Perspective can be adjusted in 1-pixel steps using the keyboard arrow keys. Resize and sharpen options were added to Batch Convert RAW. Mashup can adjust image overlaps and transparencies more easily. Three minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: All deprecated GTK+ functions were replaced. Fotoxx will no longer build on Ubuntu prior to 13.10. The Blur function was made over 10x faster when a radius greater than 20 is used. A new Color Drawing function converts a photo into a simulated color drawing. A plugin was added to clean-up a photo of a smudgy white board using ImageMagick. Retouch Combo has better control of color, and all settings can now be saved to a file and reused for other images. One significant bug and one minor bug were fixed.
Release Notes: Retouch Combo can better adjust individual colors, change the sensitivity of the edit curves, and show a brightness distribution graph in the dialog background. Image Gallery has a slow scroll mode for scanning images visually. Slide Show has optional settings per image: transition type, dwell time, zoom-in speed, target center, and magnification. Leverage Edits was restored (for some cases it works better than Paint Edits). All curve edits allow sharper bends (closer anchor points). The Background Pattern interface was improved and the pattern can be rescaled. One significant bug was fixed.
Release Notes: The gallery page now highlights the current image thumbnail. Gallery thumbnails can pop up larger images, which can be moved and resized to view multiple images. Convert an image into a mosaic with small tiles made from all available images. Click on the tiles to pop-up larger images. Add a background pattern to an image (e.g. make it appear to be painted on canvas or a brick wall). Several small interface changes were made for convenience and consistency with other apps. Speed was also improved. Three significant bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Indexing of new images is faster. Retouch Combo has new controls for fast adjustment of overall brightness, contrast, and color (curves can still be hand-tuned). Slide Show can simulate turning a book page. The Batch Rename and Convert functions were combined, and an auto-sharpen option was added. In Paint/Clone, a "shadow" paintbrush tracks the copy-from area. Edge blending of an edited area was marginally improved. Retouch Combo, Trim/Rotate, and Resize can recall prior settings for faster processing of multiple images needing similar treatment. One significant and two minor bugs were fixed.
