saw it on slashdot, its a flash based photoshop-like image editing software. It works on mine with flash 9 for linux beta! Have not really tried to make anything just open up a picture, and it works pretty well. For those of you who hate gimp and dont want to run PS in wine.

Eh? But how are we supposed to UPLOAD a pic? I suppose I could upload my images somewhere and then edit them, but it's too much of a hassle.

Not bad. This looks like it has some real potential.

just can't upload an image. it wants to open only some "fauxto" image, not .jpg .png .jpeg .bmp and all other graphic formats

Yeah, this doesn't work.

Back to hoping Photoshop gets ported really soon.

Don't use Open Image. Use Open Web Image Instead. It'll allow you to open jpg, png, gif, tif, bmp etc.
However I just tried to upload a jpg wallpaper and firefox crashes on me. I don't remember runnning into this kind of problems back when I was on Windows though.

I first came accross Fauxto several months ago while I was diggin around the web looking for cool browser-based apps to put on a magazine article I was writing.

Apart from Fauxto, I also ran into another web photo editor called Picnik (http://www.picnik.com) which is Flash-based instead of Ajax. It offers mainly photo color enhancement tools. Picnik vs Fauxto is like Photoshop Elements vs Photoshop CS2 (but in a much much lower levels comparing to the Adobe ones :D)
