Fotoxx 15.05, a good Gimp alternative

Most Linux users will find Gimp vastly oversized for their needs, so maybe Fotoxx is a good alternative!



Fotoxx is a user-friendly and neat, and yet very advanced photo manipulation software that is worth trying.

The effects are simple to use and understand and a real-time preview of what they will show is always available.
