I see fotoxx in alpha6 is at 5.01.
If I install this latest version, I will loose space in the pup_save file I suppose?
And what if I follow here and install new version on new version, how does this work?

Thanks Muggins. I hope someone (or you Wink ) prepares Fotoxx for Puppy 5.

@Beem,

yes, fotoxx 6 series requires more space as it also needs the freeimage libs installed...but, dependent on your needs, with ufraw & exivtool, it has more capability than fotoxx 5 series.

@playdayz,

why not yourself? If you have a working compile environment for pup5, then you just need to compile freeimage, ufraw, exiftool & fotoxx. They all compile easily, and if you have any probs, just post a query.

cheers

I just thought I'd mention that, to compile fotoxx6, I usually just change 3 files. From the file dependencies.sh I remove xdg-open from the list of dependencies. I alter the Makefile so that PREFIX=/usr then, lastly, I alter the following lines in zfuncs.cpp from this:

Code:
prog = "xdg-open";   
   err = system("xdg-open --version");
   if (err) {
      prog = "firefox";
      err = system("firefox -v");
      if (err) {
         zmessLogACK("no xdg-open, no firefox, cannot display document");
         return;
      }
   }


to this:

Code:
prog = "defaultbrowser";   
   err = system("xdg-open --version");
   if (err) {
      prog = "firefox";
      err = system("firefox -v");
      if (err) {
         zmessLogACK("no xdg-open, no firefox, cannot display document");
         return;
      }
   }

+ the very long edit menu was divided into 6 menus
+ new help menu entry: show fotoxx internet home page
+ color depth function improvement:

Uploaded v7.1.2.

Quote:


7.1
The number of working threads is set to the number of CPUs present ("cores"). Previously this was fixed at 4 threads, which was counterproductive on computers with fewer CPUs. A new function was implemented in the tools menu: convert multiple RAW files. Previously each RAW file had to be opened separately. Now a wildcard spec such as *.RAW (camera dependent) will convert all RAW files in a directory. A workaround was implemented for a strange problem with changing languages in Arch Linux. The French translation was updated.

7.1.1
The "Arch Linux" problem turns out to be a GCC 4.4 problem and also affects Fedora 11 and other very recent distributions. This build relabels that problem and fixes two more GCC-related problems.

7.1.2
The fix for GCC 4.4 caused optimization errors in GCC 4.3 (bug that disappeared when optimizations were turned off). The code was simplified so that the optimization error went away.

Uploaded v7.2.1.

fotoxx 7.2.1
DateJun 24, 2009 at 22:05

+ GOFUNC was replaced with normal function calls (stop gcc optimization errors)
+ minor bug fix in sharpen - edge detection method was not blending edges correctly
+ minor bug fix in image save - keep current image index if file saved to some other directory
+ updated French translation


fotoxx 7.2
DateJun 20, 2009 at 17:49

A new function was added: select random images from thumbnail indexes, edit sequence, burn to CD or DVD. Brasero is used for the actual burn.


N.B. I tried to modify the new function, that calls Brasero to burn images, to instead use PBurn but, whilst it now opens PBurn, it doesn't directly pass the images to it. Not sure how easy to resolve this issue...more investigation required.

Uploaded v7.4.1.

Quote:

fotoxx 7.4 and 7.4.1
DateJun 30, 2009 at 23:07

A longstanding performance problem was improved. Scrolling around within a large image magnified to full size was quite slow. This is now about 4x faster. There are no scroll bars - scroll by dragging the mouse across the window ("virtual" scroll bars). Old method: make a Gtk Scrolled Window containing a Gtk Layout containing the full (huge) magnified image. New method: copy and re-scale only the viewable area from the full-size image in memory into the main/drawing window.

EXIF menu now has 2 entries: view basic data (short output) and all data (long output).

7.4.1 fixes a bug in select area line drawing function.

fotoxx 7.3
DateJun 27, 2009 at 21:19

The "simulate painting" function was extended. It can now work within an outlined area like other edit functions. Another user control was added: minimum color match required to consolidate smaller patches of color into larger ones.

File drag-drop was implemented: drag a file (e.g. from Nautilus) to a fotoxx window or desktop launcher - file will open in fotoxx. You can also make a file list in gedit and drag entries to fotoxx.

bugfix: exif keys with null data could cause spurious data (some RAW files observed with UserComment = null)

I've re-uploaded v7.4.1 as I modified the source to use pburn, rather than brasero, to burn images to CD/DVD.

If you choose Tools>Burn Images to CD/DVD, then either insert individual images by clicking them, or click add all, then when you click Burn, all selected images will be transferred to Pburn.

Uploaded v8.0.

Quote:
A standard man page was added (thin, with reference to user guide).

The license was changed from GPL V2 to GPL V3.

The Warp Image algorithm was improved - it should be easier to get desired shapes.

A new function was added: High Depth of Field (HDF). HDF combines two photos of the same subject with near and far focus into a composite image with both near and far objects in sharp focus. This is still experimental: it basically works but needs improvement. Examples can be seen in fotoxx gallery. See the user guide for limitations and instructions on how to use HDF.

Uploaded v8.1.

Quote:
The French translation was updated for v.8.1.

This release has a significant bugfix and several small improvements.
+ Bugfix: saving an edited image back to the same file caused loss of EXIF data.
+ Bugfix: the [zoom+] button would sometimes display a smaller image.
+ Corrected the man page location when installing to a user-owned directory.
+ Improved pano auto-search for lens parameters.
+ Tag edit: dating a series of images was made easier with a [use last] button.
+ Tag edit: allow date approximations, e.g. 2009 or 2009.08.
+ New convenience function: open file by choosing from 50 most recent files.
+ The Chinese translation was updated.

I have packaged fotoxx8.1 along with exiftool, ufraw and all dependencies as ch-fotoxx8.1_ufraw0.15.sfs for use in ChoicePup and other Pups. Seems to work well although I didn't know what a raw image is Embarassed (thanks wikepedia) and couldn't find one in my photos to test out ufraw.

Thanks Muggins. Cheers, J

@jrb,

This is an example of a RAW file, in Nikon NEF format. If you start Fotoxx, then, in Fotoxx's menu, File>Open RAW File, and select this file, it will ask if you want to convert it to a 48bit TIFF file, using Ufraw.
