"Low End" Photo Editor

Postby PaulW on Wed Apr 01, 2009 2:32 pm

About all that's keeping me from migrating my wife's computer from XP to Mint is a photo editor. Currently, we use ACDSee on XP and have sort of gotten used to it. I've tired Photoshop and Gimp, but they're a bit too complex for my wife. About all she does is crop and rotate (level out the horizon). So, I'm looking for a "basic" photo editor for her that is not complex to use. I've looked around a bit and all I've seen is "high end" [my words] editor and photo organizers - without basic editing.

Perhaps I just haven't looked in the right place - so, please provide some direction.

G'day Paul,

My favourite is Geeqie which is simple to use but is flexible enough to take you to Gimp if you need to. This is a very good package and should be in our Software Manager but I'm not sure it is there yet.

You can get it from Synaptic or a more recent version from GetDeb. Like the other poster above, Gthumb is a stable basic viewer and editor.

If you get too big for your britches, you will be exposed in the end.
