+ bugfix: sharpen via unsharp mask was ignoring "threshold" input.
+ new function: tone mapping - used to improve local contrast and
detail in image areas that are too dark or washed out.

Thankyou muggins,

I just tried this for the first time. i can't believe how easy this makes commonly required transforms such as rotation and cropping. The art transform tools are going to save me a heap of time with a current project.

@ emil,

Open a console and type "fotoxx" (without quotes)

I don't get a menu entry either but I think this may be a feature of later Puppies. think I read this in one of the four pages on this topic but the Forum is too slow to check now.

Change the category in the .desktop file to a better one say....

Code:
X-Graphic;


eg.

In the file /usr/share/applications/fotoxx.desktop
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Fotoxx
Categories=X-Graphic;
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Exec=fotoxx
Icon=/usr/share/fotoxx/icons/fotoxx.png
GenericName=Digital Photo Editor


Please read up on .desktop files for the future as you may want to teak menu entries!

Happy New Year muggins! This is the same problem as the 8.5 version that I reported on 2nd Oct 2009. Please update.

Uploaded v9.2.

Quote:

fotoxx 9.2
DateJan 1, 2010 at 17:35

Select area by color was made easier: an optional radius of action was added to quickly incorporate excluded "islands" or push-out area edges. Area edge calculation and blending was made into a separate dialog. The defog function was removed - it duplicated the functions of the brightness and color saturation curves, and also the new tone mapping functions produce better results. For the Blur function, the minimum blur radius was reduced to 0.5 pixels, which is barely perceptible. Two bugs were fixed: (1) Tone mapping with edge blending was causing some pure black pixels to turn white. (2) The edge of a mouse-selected area which also hugs an image edge was not being omitted for the purporse of edge blending.


To Emil, abushcrafter, munichjohn, and anyone else interested, the problem with fotoxx not appearing in the menu, with p431, was because p431 clobbered the "Graphics" category, and apparently needs some sub-category. So I've changed the .desktop file to have:

Categories=2DGraphics

and it definitely appears in menu for p412 & p431.

I use Fotoxx to convert a PSD to JPEG file. It worked fine. Fotoxx did complain about the exif tool/library not being available. The installation was to Puppy 4.3.1. Thanks for the pet!

JustGreg,


regarding the fotoxx's exiv complaint, just install exiftool, from the first post. See:

(N.B. This latest release requires the installation of the attached freeimage library .pet. It also supports usage of exiftool & ufraw, if these are installed.)

I have the same complaint about exiftool not being installed, despite having installed it. It was not a problem in 9,1, but beacma a problem in 9.2.
