Fotoxx Release 16.05.1

  • Portuguese language updated.
  • Bugfix: crash if Trim/Rotate is initiated from the image popup menu.

Fotoxx Release 16.05

  • A new image location map was implemented using OpenStreetMap.
    This has superior functionality, but depends on having a fast and reliable
    internet connection. The old method (using large local map files) can still
    be used and may be preferable for custom maps.
  • New: Selective Rescale: Scale image down, leaving selected areas unchanged.
    This can be used to increase the relative size of the area of interest.
  • Gallery top panel has more information about current album or search view.
  • Font and map marker sizes are adjustable for monitor size and DPI.
  • Bugfix: no warning was given when a gallery thumbnail was opened and the
    previous image file had unsaved modifications which were silently discarded.
  • Bugfix: minor memory leak in Manage Albums.

Fotoxx Release 16.04.1

  • Bugfix: Saving an unmodified file with a new file type (e.g. tif to jpg) could produce a duplicate of the input file with the wrong file type (e.g. a tif file with a .jpg extension).

Fotoxx Release 16.04

  • Initial file indexing was made faster by running metadata extraction and thumbnail creation in parallel. Speedup: 11% for 7200 rpm disk and 60% for SSD.
  • New image sharpen method: median difference: like unsharp mask, with less halos.
  • New slide show transitions: spiral, french door.
  • Bugfix: crash in panorama "flatten" function if image is too large.
  • Bugfix: failure of Add Lines function in rare cases (arcsin(1.000000x)). 
  • Workaround: If an image file that is used in albums is renamed or moved, the album image goes missing. There is no way to fix this, but now a report of the missing files is shown before they are purged from the album. If files are renamed or moved using the Batch Convert tool, then albums are correctly updated.
