Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

RPhotoRPhoto is an open-source image viewer and editor for Windows and Linux. Its origin resides in the lack of a simple software capable of cropping photos with a constant ratio, to avoid white borders when printing.

RPhoto is lightweight, very fast, and offers basic rotate, resize and crop functions, optimizes JPEG files, has a built-in file explorer and is able to read EXIF data.

After using it a bit, RPhoto already became my default image viewer and I am sure most of you will also like it! But I said 'almost perfect'; that's because I couldn't find a way to zoom the images which is something quite basic...

Main features are:
  • Crop images with a constant width / height ratio (by example 4:3 for numeric photos)
  • Rotate / Flip photos
  • Lossless crop / rotate / flip operations.
  • Available under Linux and Windows.
