    I have been searching for a program and have stubbled across a few. I am interested in your personal experience with a free photo editing program on Ubuntu/Linux. I would prefer to use Sudo or Ubuntu Software Center.

    You can try fotoxx, it's in the repositories.

    Do not agree with that statement at all. That's like saying PS isn't for photos, or Inkscape isn't for drawing.

    Gimp IS a photo editor and powerful one at that.

    I'm not saying you have to like using it, but please, before making statements like that, take a look at the Gimp Registry and note all the photography related plug-ins and scripts...


    i am sorry but i stick to whast i said

    i see it as primarily a generic image editor not specifically by any stretch of the imagination a photocentric program

    showfoto on the other hand really is for photo and nothing else

    check all the options for example under color/black and white...




    by the way i love gimp and use it everyday but not often for photowork

    I've never heard about PINTA before. Thanks a lot! It's excellent!
    (Yes, it can be found in the Software Center.)

    There are a few photo retouch based programs worth looking at.
    I generally use Digikam for this 2.0 will be out soon and looks really promising. The other option I quite like is DarkTable.

    OK. Agree to disagree.

    I tend to see such "Photo-centric" editors as too limited and hand-holding in what they do.

    As I said, see the Gimp-Registry for scripts and plug-ins. I'm certainly not lacking for options for B&W type things.

    Though for the vast majority of my photo work, I use Darktable now.

    Now that one is new on me. Tried To install it yesterday on Natty. Using the Pascal de bruin ppa but it says broken packages

    Code:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies.
     darktable : Depends: libexiv2-6 but it is not installable
    E: Broken packages

    If anyone knows how to install it on Natty would love to know

    Personally I love GIMP, but for very basic editing and organizing, you can use Picasa 3 .

    I really like paint.net also!

    Now that I have a little time to do things I installed 10.04LTS alongside my W7. I do not need all the wizardry of GIMP right now so this find is great!

    Re: Looking for a Photo Editor

    I don't hate the GIMP anymore. But I did before I found this site:
    http://meetthegimp.org/

    Because I hate software I have trouble using. Meet the GIMP has some nice video tutorials that walk a user through basic tools.

    I used to have a lot of difficulty using InkScape. But since I've found these tutorials (again, more free online videos), my use of Inkscape has improved greatly: http://screencasters.heathenx.org/

    Hope these references help.
