Install Fotoxx Image Editor on Debian 11 Bullseye

Learn the commands to install Fotoxx on Debian 11 Bullseye Linux. The software is an image management and image editing program that focuses on the simple and fast operation. Beginners, in particular, should be offered a tool to make working with digital images under Linux much easier.

In contrast to programs like Shotwell, no internal database is used, but the existing folder structure on the data medium, as with gThumb or Geeqie. However, it should be noted that an internal index is created when the program is started for the first time so that metadata can be found more quickly. As long as this indexing is running, images can be viewed but not edited. Whether the program lives up to its reputation “for people who find F-Spot too limited but GIMP too complicated” is something you should try for yourself.

Basic features:

Image preview (thumbnails) with adjustable size
Full-screen slide show with keyboard navigation
View and edit metadata (Exif, IPTC, etc.)
Create your tags (rating, image description)
Search by metadata, tags, rating, date, description, filenames
Batch functions: rename, shrink, export, tags, RAW import
Sending pictures by email
Creating CDs or DVDs
Printout in various standard formats (custom sizes also possible)
Flexible image editing with unlimited undo/redo steps and fast before/after preview
