Pixeluvo Image Editing Software is Perfect for Linux Users
Advocates for free and open source software can now enjoy a powerful and affordable photo editing experience thanks to an innovative new Linux compatible suite called Pixeluvo. Designed to seamlessly complement Linux operating systems, the software is a must have tool for any photography enthusiast wanting to create professional standard images without having to make the switch from Linux OS.
Former Sony games developer Andy Gill is the brains behind the business, driven by a desire to create a Linux friendly photo editing suite that didn’t come with an exorbitant price tag. For Linux users, Pixeluvo represents a new era of photo editing technology.
“Linux makes a great desktop OS, but the lack of professional-grade applications for image editing is a reason many users keep Windows around too. Switching betweens OSes is a pain, which is why I made sure Pixeluvo worked seamlessly on Linux from the start. Everything looks and feels exactly the same on Linux, with all the same tools and features.” says Gill.
While Linux may not lead the way in global OS preferences, it does boast a considerable market share. Net Applications revealed that the free, open source software is currently used by 1.5% of desktop users. Unlike other popular image manipulation suites which either offer Linux users a subpar experience, or no compatibility at all, Pixeluvo has been precision engineered to complement the open source OS. Now, Linux users can enjoy a full set of photo editing tools and functions that offer all the complexity and depth of their big name competitors.
A full high precision raw image processing pipeline allows users to import raw files from all camera manufacturers. The platform offers precise control over exposure, colour, and tone values, as well as allows for the addition of adjustment layers and masks. All RAW files are placed in their own layer type which ensures all settings remain fully editable. Other standout features include a complex colour correction suite, pre-set brush tools, layer and mask modes and a complete range of filters and effects.
To kick-start the Pixeluvo experience Linux users are invited to take part in the software’s free tutorial sessions available on the website. An Introduction to Layers and Masks, Working with Portraits and Introduction to Pixeluvo are all designed to help Linux users make the absolute most out of the software.
Pixeluvo currently offers two download options for Linux users. Depending on distribution, users can download the deb files version for Ubuntu and derivatives or the rpm files version for Fedora/Suse and derivatives.
